Like I said, I am REALLY bad with graphic arts. I thought about doing a Pinterest board of cool images related to the book, but I think there are a lot of those artwork roundups, especially on Tumblr. But, I did something that I actually had a lot of fun doing - finding my favorite quotes from the book! I scoured the hardcover copy, and found these! The images are from the US and UK book covers. Enjoy!

About An Ember in the Ashes:
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Book One of the An Ember in the Ashes series
Publication Date: April 28, 2015
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.
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.
ELIAS is the academy’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, he’s ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.
When Laia and Elias’s 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.
