Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
“All hail the Fire Queen.
Against all odds, Ruby has defeated the villainous Frost King and melted his throne of ice. But the bloodthirsty Minax that was trapped inside is now haunting her kingdom and everyone she loves. The answers to its demise may lie to the south in Sudesia, the land of the Firebloods, and a country that holds the secrets to Ruby’s powers and past…
Despite warnings from her beloved Arcus, Ruby accompanies a roguish Fireblood named Kai to Sudesia, where she must master her control of fire in a series of trials to gain the trust of the suspicious Fire Queen. Only then can she hope to access the knowledge that could defeat the rampaging Minax—which grows closer every moment. But as sparks fly in her moments alone with Kai, Ruby no longer knows whom to trust. The fates of two kingdoms are now in her hands.”
I have been so eager for this book since finishing Frostblood at the start of the year and honestly, it was worth the wait.
Fireblood continues along Ruby’s journey to destroy the minax, which has been wrecking havoc in Tempesia. Surprisingly, the answer to her prayers can be found in Sudesia, her mother’s homeland.
Fast-paced and action packed, this book kept you wanting more. I flew through this in 2 days, mainly because the characters are so engaging. I was weary of the arrival of Kai, as I am hugely opposed to love triangles but I was pleasantly surprised and ended up becoming attached to his flirtatious audacity. The interactions between these characters were powerful and well-written. I also loved the expansion of the world’s mythology, which we didn’t get in the first book.
I was taken back by the ending and again, I am disappointed that I have to wait for the sequel.
Well done Miss Blake, another great novel.
