    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 empire's greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.

    A fabulous listen!

    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. It's a story that's literally burning to be told. What if you were the spark that could ignite a revolution? For years Laia has lived in fear. Fear of the Empire, fear of the Martials, fear of truly living at all. Born as a Scholar, she's never had much of a choice.

    I'm very picky with my audiobooks - this one was up there with Harry Potter as one of my favorites. The narrators are amazing, the story line kept me ..Show More »

    Good story, disliked the performance

    Parts that are whispered mixed with loud ones - had to keep adjusting volume. It is inconvenient to do it constantly, as I listen to books on my comm..Show More »
