The Artist

These talented Emberlings can be found with their pencils close at hand, hard at work on their GORGEOUS fan art.

Just look at this precious cinnamon roll and her orange!

Look at that gorgeous mask on Helene!



The Shipper

Whether they’re for the warrior love of Helias or all about that Elaia ship, these Emberlings know that the Martial Empire is the best place for romance.

Because who can resist a couple with skims?!

But Elias and Laia are so sweet!

Whichever way we go, we can all agree that Elias is the best book boyfriend.


The Fan Mixer

With a keen ear for music, these reader DJs have the perfect mix for your next re-read.

The perfect indie rock reading vibe.

For when you’re ready to take on the Trials.


The Can’t Evens

At the end of the day, all Emberlings CAN’T EVEN.  Too many feels, too many questions, we just CANNOT!

News of the sequel gave us LIFE.

So. Many. FEELS.

We have our tissues at the ready.



There you have it, some of the beautiful ways fans have shown their love for An Ember in the Ashes!
