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.

Starting this after bailing on Realm Breaker. Hopefully I like this one better. I‘ve not heard of this author, seems like a typical YA fantasy read, lucky for me I LOVE those!!! #wishmeluck #newauthor #YA

"Sparks leaped from the hearth and settled onto my fingers, heat drawn to heat, and glittered like molten gems against my skin." This sentence from the book is very compelling. It shows that that character has some sort of special ability, since they are able to hold something so hot directly on their skin. This quote is also a great example of how amazingly descriptive the author's writing is. Readers will be drawn in to read it. @MrsBabki

I realized that I had forgotten to write about Frostblood after I had written about the other two books in the trilogy, so here it is. Frostblood is an exceptional novel. I truly love the personality of the main character Ruby. She is independent, clever, powerful, and courageous. It was impossible to put the book down every night. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a page turning, fast-paced read with a sizzling romance. @MrsBabki

Where to even begin with this book... It‘s very very similar to Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. So it was like rereading that book. Also Arcus was very moody and confusing at times... like there were aspects that were really good but over all, it was just ok.

This was amazing! It‘s everything I was hoping I would read! And if me buying the sequel 5 minutes after I finished is any indicator on how I felt about this book then maybe this will be

If you are fan of Falling Kingdoms or Throne of Glass then this book is for you! It is honestly so good, and I can‘t wait to read the rest and see the character and relationship development that is to come!

The plot of this YA fantasy story offers nothing new compared to other mainstream YA fantasy stories I‘ve read yet still managed to hold my attention. I liked the characters (despite the over told storyline) and enjoyed the story behind the war between Firebloods and Frostbloods. While this first installment in the Frostblood Saga trilogy felt familiar, I still found it to be a decent enough addition to the YA fantasy genre.

Just finished reading this book. Fantastic read filled with frosty/firey magic. Sprinkled with a a little romance and just enough war. Definitely one to check out for those who enjoy epic fantasy.
For young adults and older.

This is another pick a book, do a look from January. 😅 I loved this series so much. Though the outline of the story seemed familiar the way it was told was amazing and I fell in love with multiple characters throughout the 3 books.

Brief Summary: 17 years old Ruby is a Fireblood who has concealed her powers from the cruel Frostblood king. Despite her unpredictable abilities, Ruby trains with the rebels and the infuriating. However, she was captured and forced to compete in the king's arena.
Why this book? As I read the summary it gave me chills, it was fascinating.

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). 4y

“The reign of ice must end”

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

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

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 🙊

Ellechim When you finish it, let me know if it‘s good! I have it on my Amazon wish list for some time and I‘m still indecisive about buying it. 5y
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. 😇 5y

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.

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. ♥️ 5y

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.
