An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes Series – Book 1) Sabaa Tahir

Laia and her family live in constant fear and degradation, never wanting to catch the attention of the Empire and yet, one of the Empire’s deadliest soldiers, a Mask, comes at night, dealing death. Laia may have escaped, but her new life as a spy for the resistance makes her a slave for the very institution that breeds oppression. It is in Blackcliff, training ground of Masks, that Laia meets Elias. Separate they are powerful, together, they could change the world.
