How far would you go for power, love, freedom and family? In the An Ember in the Ashes quartet, these themes are explored in a world full of action and adventure. Inspired by Ancient Rome and its power dynamics, these books are set in a Martial Empire, where any form of defiance is met with death.

The series kicks off with protagonist Laia, whose 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. And their adventure is just about to begin ...
