Sabaa Tahir grew up in California's Mojave Desert at her family's eighteen-room motel. There, she spent her time devouring fantasy novels, raiding her brother's comic book stash, and playing guitar badly. She began writing An Ember in the Ashes while working nights as a newspaper editor. She likes thunderous indie rock, garish socks, and all things nerd. Sabaa currently lives in the San Francisco Bay area with her family.

`Game of Thrones fans will relish Tahir's debut set in a brutal
Rome-inspired empire. It follows Laia, a slave and Elias, a young
soldier, whose lives are unexpectedly intertwined in this story of
freedom, loyalty and love'
