Excuse me, there’s something on your face. A review of An Ember in the Ashes

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (Ebook) I was a little surprised how much I enjoyed reading this book. I was also surprised how disappointed I was in the end of this book.


I loved how we start out in a gut-wrenching high action scene as our main character loses her family and sets off to find the resistance. I enjoyed watching her find the resistance and what she was willing to do get their help in freeing her brother from prison. The second lead in the story is a guy who is training to be one of the ruthless Masks who took her family away. He never had a choice, though, and he’s not very happy with the person they want him to become. I really loved everything about this book until the end. I love series books, but I expect at least part of the story to finish at the end of the book. I like it when the initial plotline closes, and a new one opens at the end. This is one of those books that feels like it ends at the end of a chapter with no satisfying feeling of closure. I hate that. But I really did enjoy watching these two characters grow. This is a very well written fantasy/dystopian that really draws you in. It is worth the read, just be prepared and maybe buy both books at the same time.
