Fireblood is the second book in the Frostblood sage by Elly Blake, my review of the first book Frostblood is HERE. I gave the Frostblood 4.5 out of 5.
Fireblood resumes a couple of weeks after Frostblood, Ruby is recovering from the aftermath of destroying the ice throne and not accepting the bloodthirsty Minax control of her body. Now the Minax is jumping from body to body creating murder and mayhem in the kingdom. The answers to stopping the Minax my lie in the home of the Firebloods in Sudesia, Sudesia is the country that holds the information about Ruby’s powers and her past. King Arcus doesn’t want Ruby to go to Sudesia especially as she will be accompanied by a handsome Fireblood named Kai. Ruby must learn to control her fire and gain the trust of the Fireblood Queen, so you can access the Knowledge that could defeat the Minax. The fate of both Kingdoms rest in her hands but Ruby has to decide who she can and can not trust.
In this book we get to see Sudesia and see how different it is to the Frost Kingdom but how it has some similarities with the hate for anything different to themselves.
One of my favourite aspect of the book is the interaction between Arcus and Ruby, and Ruby and Kai. The banter between Ruby and Kai is fun, but the relationship between Arcus is more heartfelt, I love the sweet moment between them.
The story was no stop, a gripping action adventure with romance added to the mix. I now can’t wait for NightBlood.
Thank you to Netgalley and Hodder & Stoughton for giving my an Advanced copy to read and review.
I give this book 5 out of 5
