Genre: YA, Fantasy Publication Date: January 10, 2017 Pages: 384 Published By: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers Series Frostblood Saga #1
Seventeen-year-old Ruby is a fireblood who must hide her powers of heat and flame from the cruel frostblood ruling class that wants to destroy all that are left of her kind. So when her mother is killed for protecting her and rebel frostbloods demand her help to kill their rampaging king, she agrees. But Ruby's powers are unpredictable, and she's not sure she's willing to let the rebels and an infuriating (yet irresistible) young man called Arcus use her as their weapon.
All she wants is revenge, but before they can take action, Ruby is captured and forced to take part in the king's tournaments that pit fireblood prisoners against frostblood champions. Now she has only one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who has taken everything from her and from the icy young man she has come to love.
Why I'm Waiting
I feel like there are so many great fantasy reads coming out. It's like Dystopia is taking a back seat and Fantasy is surging forth like it deserves. Don't get me wrong I love dystopia but like all things sometimes it's better it takes second place for a bit, lest we get sick of it. So, this debut read featuring fire and ice and seemingly nothing horribly nice going on has my attention.
What are you waiting on?!
