Bookworming: An Ember in the Ashes

An Ember in the Ashes, Sabaa Tahir, ***
While the tropes of YA are on full display here, this is a fast-paced, dark, low fantasy tale that is well worth your time if you like the genre. The world is unique enough and the main characters drawn well enough to make it compelling. And crucially, it has an excellent villain. It tells a complete story, but very much in the style of the first in a series.
