about

In this action-packed sequel to the New York Times bestselling Frostblood, Ruby must choose between her fiery homeland and the icy king who loves her.

Against all odds, Ruby has defeated the villainous Frost King and melted his powerful throne. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fiery Fun So good! It was so easy to fall back into this world and its characters, drama, and action. The story felt like an adventure from start to finish. Epic certainly fits the bill here as Ruby struggles to balance two worlds and increase her powers to battle dark, corrupting enemies. The challenges she faced were fairly creative and quite harrowing. The story was filled with unique twists, and I was shocked by the last major reveal. The characters continued to be strong, Ruby in particular growing in maturity and strength. As for the romance, there was a LOT of drama involved in that, but both Arcus and Kai are good leads (though I'm biased in saying that Arcus is the better of the two). I really enjoyed the action scenes and craved more of them. I'm super excited to see how this series will conclude. I've really enjoyed it and genuinely look forward to each book. I can't wait for June 2018!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Loved It! If you haven't started this series you must pick it up immediately! I could not put it down as it left me either in shock or heartbroken. Elly Blake's writing was beautifully written and the background story was very insightful. Once I finished Frostblood, I knew that I couldn't wait to read Fireblood which is now one of my favourite books of this year! If you follow me on Goodreads, I mentioned that Chapter 5 left me heartbroken. It was a fast-paced, action packed and in the end surpassed my expectations and Fireblood starts a few days after Frostblood ended and Ruby is trying to adjust to the Frost blood world. I would say I'm definitely invested in the characters and the entire novel. While you might see a love triangle in this novel my heart will still be with Arcus. But I still had a hard time choosing between him and Kai. But overall, I'm happy with Ruby's choice at the end! Looking forward to where Elly is going to go with this in Nightblood! As you go along we get to see more about Ruby's past and learn more about the Minax's history and learning to control her fire from the Fireblood masters. Elly Blake has written a series that you get you hooked because I know I am! If you are looking for a great fantasy read you will want to grab this book series. The writing is spot on and the ending will make you wish Nightblood was already out! Plus look at the beautiful covers. Can't wait to see what is going to happen next in the series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A GREAT sequel! **I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.** If you read Frostblood and enjoyed it then you'll love this one just as much. It had the same feel as the first while progressing our story forward and giving our favourite characters a chance to grow. LIKES - I loved that we got to meet a ton of new characters in this book! Not that I didn't like the others but I especially loved these new ones. - Most of this book takes place down south with the firebloods which was awesome. I was glad we got to learn so much about them since the last book was all about the frostbloods. - I really enjoyed reading about the three trials that Ruby had to take. It let her grow her powers which I was really glad to see. - I love that this world has it's own set of mythology. I loved that we got to learn a ton more about it in this book! - Ruby grows up a lot in this book. I especially love how she doesn't do everything Arcus says without question. She makes her own decisions and will do what she wants AND what she thinks will help Arcus. Their romance is one of the cutest things. DISLIKES - There's some big news about Ruby that gets revealed and I can't decide if I love it or if it was too typical of a trope. It wasn't bad but I think we'll have to wait to see how it progresses. - The storyline with the Minax could get a little confusing. I think I like the idea of them but it could have been executed a little better.
