For those of you who don't know, Sabaa Tahir's New York Times Best-Selling novel, An Ember in the Ashes, where have you been?! Haha just kidding. This book is an epic fantasy novel that has similiarities to Ancient Rome. This book is pretty intense, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You can read my review here.
Penguin is launching a campaign for AEITA and the first post has to do with fandom-naming. What should we call Ember fans?!
I honestly have no idea, but Penguin Teen has some great ideas (and you can vote) here!
I think my favorite option is THE EMBERLINGS or maybe The Aspirants. I don't know, your thoughts?

Set in a terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An Ember in the Ashes is an epic fantasy debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his freedom. It’s a story that’s literally burning to be told.
LAIA is a Scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empire’s greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.
ELIAS is the academy’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, he’s ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.
When Laia and Elias’s paths cross at the academy, they find that their destinies are more intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change the future of the empire itself.
