An Ember In The Ashes
by Sabaa Tahir

Laia’s whole family has been killed by the Empire, except for her and her brother. But Darin has been arrested by the Empire, and she must find him. To do so, she agrees to pose as a spy on a doomed mission: to help rebels overtake the Empire.
Laia has no idea what she’s doing, only that she’s being sent to serve a ruthless and brilliant mistress who doesn’t hesitate to kill, maim, or otherwise dispose of displeasing servants. When she gets to Blackcliff, she meets Elias, the Commandant’s son, who is as much of a slave as she is, in his own way. He wants nothing more than to be free of his military training, and she just wants to live to save her brother. But the Empire takes no prisoners, and betrayal is tantamount to death.
With jinn, ghuls, and mysterious psychic Augurs impacting their fates, Laia and Elias both struggle to survive their intertwined destinies.
