Review: An Ember in the Ashes

An Ember in the Ashes - Sabaa Tahir

Did you ever feel the need to actually hug a book, to hold it close to your heart? Did you ever feel that a book was somehow meant for you? Did you ever hear its gentle call? Because I did..

I love reading with a passion and there are books like AN EMBER IN THE ASHES that are absolutely perfect (In each. And every. Way!), so in sync with me, having a rhythm that matches precisely the one of my own heart.

It’s hard to put into words how much this story means to me, how much I love it. No.. I take it back, it’s not just love, I adore this book! From cover to cover, deeply charmed by each word in between, by each drop of ink on its pages.

AN EMBER IN THE ASHES is one of the most complex stories I’ve read lately, plot and character related. Even from the very first chapter it was mind-blowing and exquisitely beautiful and it left me with my heart aching all over – because I want more, I need more. Please tell me there will be more to this story!
