My pick for this week Fireblood by Elly Blake!
In this action-packed sequel to Frostblood, the future of Ruby's world and a court ruled by the love of her life depends on the uncovered secrets of her past..
Against all odds, Ruby has defeated the villainous Frost King and melted his throne of ice. But the bloodthirsty Minax that was trapped inside is now haunting her kingdom and everyone she loves. The answers to its demise may lie to the south in Sudesia, the land of the Firebloods, and a country that holds the secrets to Ruby's powers and past....
Despite warnings from her beloved Arcus, Ruby accompanies a roguish Fireblood named Kai to Sudesia, where she must master her control of fire in a series of trials to gain the trust of the suspicious Fireblood queen. Only then can she hope to access the knowledge that could defeat the rampaging Minax--which grows closer every moment. But as sparks fly in her moments alone with Kai, how can Ruby decide whom to trust? The fate of both kingdoms is now in her hands.
Why I'm Waiting
I just finished Frostblood by Elly Blake on the 13th, and really liked it! At first it read just like any other standard YA fantasy novel, but I was really enjoying it by the halfway mark. The characters are what completely sold me in the story, as well as the romance! I really loved how every character was distinct, and the romance was very well done. The only thing that makes me a bit hesitant to pick this up right away is teh hint of a love triangle. Hopefully that doesn't take up too much of the plot. Plus, no one is going to come between Ruby and Arcus for me!
Have you read Frostblood? What did you think? Are you looking forward to the sequel?
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
