Tawney Thursday: An Ember in the Ashes Sequel Predictions
Have you heard the news that there's going to be a sequel to An Ember in the Ashes? We're so excited!
This book is amazing and I can't wait to see what happens to the characters in the second book. So today I'm going to make my top 3 predictions of what will happen in the sequel. Of course they may be way off but this will be fun!
Here we go!
Note that there may be some spoilers of the first book. If you have not read the book just skim through the gifs.
Elias- Our hero
Recap of first book: Elias is a student at Blackcliff, a graduation away from being a Mask. But he was given Trials to see if he was fit to be Emperor. He failed and was almost killed by is best friend Helene only to be saved by Laia. They are now on the run thanks to Helene letting them go. Wait what?
My predictions: Elias will go back with Laia and join the resistance. He will become a better warrior and tell them all the weaknesses regarding the Masks. He will have to face his friend Helene and the Emperor in an epic battle. I have high hopes these two get back together.
Laia: Our heroine
Recap of first book: Laia is a a young scholar who was sent to infiltrate Blackcliff as a spy and work for The Commandment. She was seriously abused but gathered information for The Resistance. There is a love triangle going on between her, Elias and a resistance fighter named Keenan.
My Predictions: Laia will become more of a warrior, training with Elias. They will go on missions together and maybe make out. But the connection between them isn't there and she runs back to Keenan. She will definitely be there to help Elias destroy the empire.
Helene: MY GIRL!
Recap of Book: Helene is such a badass warrior and friend to Elias. She may be thought of has the bad girl but I don't see it that way. She was raised to be this type of girl, to have little empathy for slaves or anything else. She and Elias both help each other through the Trials and save each other many times. Such heartwarming emotions! There's a spark between them but that darn Laia gets in the way!
My predictions: Ok, so Helene is now serving the Emperor. She commands the Masks and seeks out to destroy the resistances, even Elias. But she still harbors feelings for him and just can't kill him...again. She switch sides and helps Elias take down the Empire, They get married and have a bunch of warrior kids.
Ok, if there is a third book my predictions are totally wrong. They may still be wrong!
But this was totally fun. What do you predict the second book will be about?
