Release Day Blitz: "An Ember in the Ashes" by Sabaa Tahir


Buon pomeriggio, miei cari lettori! ^^
Oggi è un giorno incredibilmente speciale, perché esce FINALMENTE un romanzo che ho atteso e desiderato a lungo (my weekly obsession #3) ! Sto ancora aspettando la mia copia del romanzo, preordinata con anticipo, ma sembra che il corriere non voglia saperne di mettere fine alla mia agonia.
Momenti di crisi a parte, eccomi qui a condividere con voi un evento fantastico organizzato da Rockstar Book Tours, che ringrazio come sempre per queste ghiotte occasioni! Si tratta oggi del Release Day Blitz di AN EMBER IN THE ASHES di Sabaa Tahir, un romanzo epic-fantasy che è sta già conquistando tutti e che arriverà anche in Italia, grazie a Nord Editore! *_*
Il Blitz include un Giveaway, che però è solo per gli Stati Uniti (peccato, lo so!), una lettera d'introduzione dell'autrice, il fantastico booktrailer (che ormai immagino conosciate a memoria) e dei bellissimi banner dedicati al romanzo!

Dear Readers, 
Today, my “baby” AN EMBER IN THE ASHES is finally out in the world! From inception to pub date, this journey took eight years. And what a journey it was: writing, rewriting, revising, editing, querying, submitting; Meeting other debuts, bloggers, booksellers and librarians, and hearing their thoughts on EMBER. There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the radness. 
And now, the book is here! I am so excited to see it in the hands of readers. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. To celebrate release day, I’m giving away two signed, first-edition hardcovers of the book. Details below! 

All my best, 

Sabaa

An Ember in the Ashes
by Sabaa Tahir


Pages: 464
Genres: young adult, fantasy, epic-fantasy
Publisher: Razorbill
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.
