An Ember in the Ashes Brief Summary

In a world inspired by the ancient Rome Empire, we are introduced to two differently similar people. Laia and Elias. Laia is a slave who has been forced to live in fear – she fears the Empire even the thought of her living also frightens her. Elias is on his way to becoming an excellent soldier serving the Masks, the Empire’s elite troops – though he is unwilling to do so.

But when Laia’s brother is taken for treason, she must make a decision; either succumb to her fears and do nothing or fight with the Resistance, her only chance of saving her brother. She must spy for them from within the Military Academy. Eventually, Laia and Elias meet, and their destinies are intertwined.

It is amazing how the fate of an entire Empire lies with the decisions these two make. All we can hope is that they make the right one!
