Good Reads for Spring

An Ember in the Ashes
by Sabaa Tahir     
                            
Golden Isles Library

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. 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.

Enter Jamie Watson, recruited to the school for his prowess on the soccer field but a quick temper, passion for writing and craving for excitement force him to team with Charlotte to solve the murder of the her date rapist. Throw into the plot poisons, Moriarty’s descendant and a deadly virus to set the stage for first-rate mystery

Dearest, it was a night
That in its darkness rocked Orion’s stars;
A sighing wind ran faintly white
Along the willows, and the cedar boughs
Laid their wide hands in stealthy peace across
The starry silence of their antique moss:
No sound save rushing air
Cold, yet all sweet with Spring,
And in thy mother’s arms, couched weeping there,
Thou, lovely thing.
-- Walter de la Mare, 1920
