You may recall a review I did about a month ago about a YA dystopian tale that really got my attention.

That tale was Black Tiger, a story that involved a common girl who turned out to be not so common. Sound cliche? It really isn’t, but if you want to know more, you can check out my review (and others) on Goodreads right here: Goodreads: Black Tiger.

But we are not here to talk about Black Tiger, oh no we aren’t. We are here to talk about the anticipated sequel: Ashen City.

The main reason for this is that today, January 18th, is the cover reveal and launch date extraordinaire! (or something like that)


Yeah! That’s the cover!

Sara was kind enough to let me be a part of her hype team (I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s called), so she gave me all of these lovely little details to give to you lovely people.

The most important of which is that Ashen City launches APRIL 6TH!!!

And to tantalize you further with that wondrous tidbit, here is a blurb:

Make your choice, Ember Carter. And make it count.

Ember Carter has escaped the flames of death. But will she ever be free from Chief Titus? When the orchard goes up in smoke and her family turns up missing, Ember returns to Frankfort hoping to find her brother and father, and to get Titus to drop the death wish he has against her.

But Titus is always one step ahead. When Ember faces him head-on, she’s captured, only to receive another death sentence. But on her way to her execution, plans go a little askew, and Ember finds herself traveling to the one place no one dares travel: Louisville. If the outskirts of Ky were a ghost town, the ashen city is the borderline of hell itself, but it’s the one place Ember can find refuge from the people who want her dead. 

In the ashen city, Ember must learn that being a hero is more than doing what is right because she can, but doing it for the good of the people. And when plans take a turn for the worst, she must decide if it’s worth risking her life to save her country.


So yeah, sounds intense, and I am interested to see what will happen to Ember in the next installment.

If you are interested in Ashen City, or perhaps you want to familiarize yourself with the series, there are some resources for you. First, check out Black Tiger On Amazon. Once you have done that, you can stay up-to-date with info on Ashen City at Sara’s Official Site. Also Sara will be going on a blog tour April 6-20 and be giving out information on Ashen City and the series as a whole.

I hope you are excited as I am at the prospect of a fresh, interesting take on the YA dystopian genre and please take a moment to check out Sara’s work.

Blessings to all and remember, what we create matters.
