I'm a little late to the party, but I wanted to read this before I began watching the HBO series on DVD. Great decision. I don't know if I would have realized what a surprisingly good job has been done recreating such an excellent book for the small screen. I'm very impressed with the author's imagination and breadth of scope. What an amazing world he has created. Very excited about continuing the series.

An amazing fantasy world that drags you in and just won't let go. I wasn't sure I would like it but, I am so happy to say that I absolutely love it and am already on the second book. I laughed and I cried. I have never read another book like it. I can definitely say this is going to be one of my favorite series.

2012 was the year I discovered George R.R. Martin and his wonderful world. A Song of Ice and Fire was imaginative, unique, enthralling and best of all, long! I spent hours reading the first book and am on the fifth in the series now. Definitely my favorite book of 2012!

This book, the first in the series, pulls you in as you get into it. However, the last few pages come as a complete surprise, leaving you exclaiming - WHAT???!!! Thus, you are hooked and must complete the subsequent books. Never have I read a book the likes of this.

Wasn't originally a fan of sci-fi/fantasy, but got completely lost in this book and it drove me to read the rest of the series.

Set in a terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An Ember in the Ashes is an epic fantasy debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his freedom. Its a story thats literally burning to be told.

LAIA is a Scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empires greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.


ELIAS is the academys finest soldier— and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, hes ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.


When Laia and Eliass paths cross at the academy, they find that their destinies are more intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change the future of the empire itself.
