YA Book Group: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

March 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join our book group celebrating the very best in young adult fiction…

Last month we launched our YA Book Group – and we want you to come along to the next discussion!

YA is one of the fastest growing and most successful categories in the book trade – and for good reason! Progressive politics, complex characters and thrilling stories of human connection and experience are worth celebrating in books. Now you can read some of the best contemporary young adult fiction and come along to a comfortable space where you can discuss it in depth with others – whilst enjoying refreshments. And best of all – it’s free to join!

How it works
Reserve a space online or in-store, read the book and turn up! This book group is run by Katalina, our resident YA expert.
Please let us know in plenty time if you can no longer attend so we can offer your place to someone else.
Please turn up on time so we can begin the discussion promptly.
Please read the book before coming!

In March we are reading An Ember in the Ashes, the first book in the Ember Quartet, a fantasy series like no other you’ve read so far.

About the book

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. When Laia’s grandparents are brutally murdered and her brother arrested for treason by the empire, the only people she has left to turn to are the rebels. But in exchange for their help in saving her brother, they demand that Laia spy on the ruthless Commandant of Blackcliff, the Empire’s greatest military academy. Should she fail it’s more than her brother’s freedom at risk . . . Laia’s very life is at stake.

There, she meets Elias, the academy’s finest soldier. But Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined – and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.
