Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine, is a weekly feature for bloggers to talk about upcoming releases they're looking forward to. 

This week's pick is: 
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Expected Publication Date: April 28th, 2015

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. 

Until last week, I didn't know what this book was about beyond the fact that its cover is going to be super shiny in real life. Now that I've actually read the synopsis and know what it's about, I can't wait to read it! It sounds action-packed and totally awesome. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
