Frostblood
Frostblood: The Frostblood Saga Book One | Elly Blake
The first in a page-turning young adult series perfect for fans of Victoria Aveyard's Red Queen and S.J. Maas's Throne of Glass, set in world where flame and ice are mortal enemies - but together create a power that could change everything. In a land governed by the cruel Frostblood ruling class, seventeen-year-old Ruby is a Fireblood who has spent most of her life hiding her ability to manipulate heat and light - until the day the soldiers come to raid her village and kill her mother. Ruby vows revenge on the tyrannous Frost King responsible for the massacre of her people. But Ruby's powers are unpredictable...and so are the feelings she has for Arcus, the scarred, mysterious Frostblood warrior who shares her goal to kill the Frost King, albeit for his own reasons. When Ruby is captured by the Frost King's men, she's taken right into the heart of the enemy. Now she only has one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who took everything from her - and in doing so, she must unleash the powers she's spent her whole life withholding.

Fireblood Ruby must both learn to master her powers and find a way to survive in the land ruled by Frostbloods. YA fantasy isn‘t my thing, but I had this from a subscription box so I thought I‘d give it a try. I enjoyed it much more than I expected to and found it to be well-written. I‘m not sure I plan to continue the trilogy, but this was satisfying.

Three stars, not so bad but not so original either. I'm still in doubt if I'll go on reading this series, not many hooks left to keep me interested enough. Also #F for #AtoZLitsy

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4.5/5)

This was a quick read that I enjoyed. Ruby started off a bit annoying, but her witty comebacks and sass won me over by the end. I also enjoyed the enemies-to-lovers trope that is used, and I got a hint of Throne of Glass and Hunger Games vibes. I personally am not a fan of Marella, but hope she improves as the series continues. In addition, the ending gave us a partially-satisfying ending that sets up for “Fireblood”.

This book is pretty good. I wish there was something less than pick but more than so so. The pacing of this book is a little off as I found it to be very interesting then it would start to drag. At times it felt like two different stories shoved together. But it was a pleasant and easy read. If you‘re looking to be entertained this is a good book for that.

ElizaMarie I feel the same way (with the rating system). 4mo

“The reign of ice must end”

This reminded me of Victoria Aveyard‘s Red Queen. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it just the same!

I sped through this, but didn‘t really love it.

It‘s a fun read, but the romance was meh. I‘ll probably read the others.

Ruby is a Fireblood in a land where her kind are hated by the ruling Frostbloods, hunted down & either murdered or forced to fight in the arena. After her arrest & the destruction of her village, she finds herself drawn into a plot to end the power of the throne—or die trying.

The above is just part of the story. The book drew me in right away, with a brilliant heroine & a plot that never disappointed. I‘ll definitely check out the sequel!

I really enjoyed this one. Good YA fantasy/adventure with a little romance in there. A strong lead female who didn‘t annoy me. Reminiscent a bit to me of Victoria Aveyard‘s series. All good and recommended. I will be picking up the next in the series.

I liked this book as I liked #ThroneofGlass or a similar book. I gave 4⭐ to #Frostblood because I loved the story but it's true that you won't read anything new if you read this book. Idk, I only know that i need to read the second book asap, because this thing with the throne and the minax keeps me interested 🙊❄

So, if you liked Throne of Glass or Red Queen, you'll like this one ❄

This is getting better! It still reminds me of ToG but i'm liking it very much! It's a fast reading, with not too many descriptions and it has enough mystery to keep me interested 🙊

annieftbooks @Ellechim it was good! I mean, it's so similar to ToG and books like that, but i like it. If you liked those stories, you'll probably like this one. 😇 1y

I'm currently reading four books but i'm focused on #Frostblood and #TheLastStar. I'm liking them both but i'm still at the beginning so i could change my mind 😂.

I'm reading Frostblood *right now* and it reminds me of #ThroneofGlass. The beginning of the story is very similar but i like it 🙊

I absolutely love this book!
I was surprise with how the storyline turned out at the end.
It was a page turner and a book you don't want to put down. I highly recommend this book. You'll be on magic spell from page one to the end.

Thank you so much @Libraryofpointedulac I love everything!! 😍 the book sounds fab I can‘t wait to read it! And I‘m in love with the unicorn headphones ❤️❤️😘😘 #theretellingbookswap

Thanks @Mommamanzi for organising this!

Sophoclessweetheart I‘m glad you like them! I‘m sorry the box of the headphones is a bit battered. I was fuming with the store I ordered them from for shipping them like that! I haven‘t read the book myself but I‘ve been told it‘s a Snow White retelling. ♥️ 2y

I kept hearing this book was a better version of Red Queen, and I really disagree. While there are a few vague similarities, i would say it's more comparable to Snow Like Ashes or even Throne of Glass. I enjoyed this book, but I didn't love it. And when reading the description for the sequel I was turned off by the upcoming love triangle.

Between so-so and pan. This book is incredibly slow, filled with every YA cliche imaginable, and brings nothing new to the fantasy genre. Honestly, if I hadn't gotten it from Netgalley I would have bailed.

Leniverse See, this is why I don't sign up for Netgalley. You risk some real duds but will feel obligated to slog through them. 2y

ON HOLD. I couldn't finish it. It was just sooo slow it was driving me mental. Whether or not I finish it, we will see. I am super disappointed by this one. I fell in love with the cover when I saw it at Indigo earlier this year. Goes to show, you can't judge a book by its cover.

I'll admit the first 20 pages I thought this book would be awful, however, I noticed I couldn't put the book down, and read most of the book in a day. I noticed I actually really liked this book despite the first twenty pages. The plot line does move fairly quick, but it does not seem too rushed or too slow. It has that perfect median. The characters were amazing and the plot line was very well done. I liked some of the plot twists as well.

I seriously loved Frostblood by Elly Blake and right now the amazing publishers are doing an awesome promo where every 1000 who add the sequel Fireblood to their goodreads to-read list they will reveal one chapter and giveaway an arc! So go here to add it https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/33784283-fireblood?ac=1&from_search=true

LuniReads I added fireblood the minute I finished frostblood because it was awesome!😁 It's so cool that they're publishing book two the same year as the first book! That almost never happens!🙌🏻😁 2y

If you can name a current popular trope in YA fantasy fiction, Frostblood probably has it....but these tropes are obviously popular for a reason, because this book was dang entertaining!

I NEVER give up on books, but I just couldn't with American War. It's not a book I usually read and I took a chance this month by picking it, should've stuck with my gut.

Anyways, onwards and forwards with something I know I like: young adult fantasy world, people with powers, and a cute love story 🤓
