📖  Hi guys!, I hope you’re having an incredible day, getting ready to start an amazing new year, from here, from my little place in the world, I wish you many successes, love, health and work, in this new year that begins. I know that all of you are capable to achieve all your goals!
In other news, here we are, and I come to tell you all about my readings of the month, or failing that, the lack of them lol.
This month I decided not to do a TBR, I honestly knew that I wouldn’t have much time to read and also I didn’t feel like reading anything specific, so this seemed like a good idea at the time.

Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free.

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear.

It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.

But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy.

There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.
