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 fight for her life in 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 excited for this book:
This looks like an amazing Romeo and Juliet type of book with magic of ice and fire.and an evil king to overthrow. I particularly like the caution of the heroine, that even though she's in love, she doesn't quite trust people still. The feeling I get from this book is equal parts the Iron Fey series, An Ember in the Ashes and the Throne of Glass series; all books I love so I'm sure I will thoroughly enjoy this book as well! One of my most anticipated books of the year, I cannot wait to devour it as soon as it comes out!
