An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

The story of insurgents fighting to eradicate oppressive overlords is as old as time, and many people may neglect fictitious stories since their lives are lived under insane, evil regimes today.

Governments are taking control of our personal freedoms at an alarming rate with sophisticated technology and "big brother" watching every word and action we take. Hopefully, one day the human race will defeat their love of power and greed, and the world will genuinely be free.

An Ember in the Ashes tells a story about a dystopian society controlled by the government, where everyone lives in fear. Most are too afraid to fight, and this is a book about those who are ready to give their life to end the tyranny.

I found a great quote in the story and think of all the dreams we could accomplish if fear didn't interfere.

“Fear is only your enemy if you allow it to be. Too much fear and you're paralyzed. Too little fear and you're arrogant.”
