An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another trilogy, written in alternating voices, set in a world with an invading/conquering military power that has overrun a more artistic, peaceful, scholarly people. What set this apart from others (see, for example, The Winner's Curse) is that the writing is a little better, with fewer clenching hearts, and the potential love triangle is done well. While neither Laia's nor Enis' lives hold many surprises, it will be interesting to see what happens in the next book.
