An Ember in the Ashes Fandom has a name!!!! #AnEmberInTheAshes

Hey guys, in case you don't know, a few weeks ago Penguin Teen put out a call for readers of An Ember in the Ashes to name it's Fandom, well you spoke and they listened and we have a name!!!! Are you ready to find out???

So what do you think? I think it's awesome and easily recognizable.

If you haven't read the book then you are missing out. Here's a the synopsis and links in case you are interested.


Laia is a slave.

Elias is a soldier.

Neither is free.

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear.

It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.

But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy.

There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.

Like Laia, who goes undercover as a servant for the ruthless Commandant in order to free her brother from prison, you'd risk everything for the most important thing in your life – family.
