Happy book birthday to A Thief Among the Trees by Sabaa Tahir! A prequel to An Ember in the Ashes, this is one of those graphic novels that really grabbed me. And, again, it’s proof that I really need to catch up on a lot of reads but I’m really excited about this one. How about you?
Barnes & Noble
Taking place years before the bestselling An Ember in the Ashes novel series, this standalone original graphic novel follows three young military recruits: Elias, Helene, and Tavi, during their brutal training as soldiers for the Martial Empire. WITHIN THE EMPIRE THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS, ONLY ORDERS. Elias, Helene and Tavi are Fivers --in training to become elite military recruits for the Martial Empire at Blackcliff Academy. When they’re sent on a dangerous mission to steal a heavily-guarded poison on Isle South, they soon find themselves up against surprising enemies -- including other recruits. As the true horror of their assignment is revealed, these three will begin to confront the harrowing realities of Martial rule, their place in the system . . . and the choices they must make to survive. New York Times bestselling author Sabaa Tahir joins writer Nicole Andelfinger and artist Sonia Liao for an all-new original graphic novel revealing an early tale of Elias and Helene at Blackcliff, and a stirring standalone chapter in the An Ember in the Ashes mythology.
