Happy Friday Everyone! I have a special treat for you today. I'm thrilled to be one of the ambassador's that Penguin Young Readers picked to help with the pre-release celebrations for AN EMBER IN THE ASHES. I am very excited for this debut author release and am waiting daily for my ARC to arrive.

Today MTV News is releasing an excerpt of AN EMBER IN THE ASHES. To celebrate, Penguin Young Readers is offering a fantastic giveaway. Details are below.

First, here's a blurb of AN EMBER OF THE ASHES from Goodreads:

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.

Doesn't it sound fantastic? And here's the link to the MTV exclusive excerpt.
Five winners will win a signed galley and a t-shirt.

This novel is a harrowing, haunting reminder of what it means to be human—and how hope might be kindled in the midst of oppression and fear.
