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 Fireblood 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, how can Ruby decide whom to trust? The fate of both kingdoms is now in her hands.


Thank you Novl for sending me a copy of Fireblood for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

Frostblood and Fireblood are the perfect pairing to build the world completely in this series. I am in love with the Frostblood's but when reading this I realized I am definitely more Fireblood. Elly did such an impeccable job with building the differences between these two races and how even their personalities and reactions are different.

Elly still gave us the swoon we are craving and yes this does go a slight love triangle direction but I still think she wrote it in a way that I am usually ok with. That is when there is a clear front runner and that we are guided into not being torn. I do love the new Ginger named Kai we get from the Fireblood lands. The quick banter and the way he makes Ruby's blood rise. 

Elly also does a phenomenal job at making one reflect on who they are and wanting to know more but also coming to terms with what we know and who we care about is our home. It does not always have to be those of blood or those who are like us.

I heard many of my friends that were hesitant because this book was a journey away from the Frostblood lands and that would leave Ruby away from Arcus. Ok yes that happens but first off not until about 100 pages in and there is so much that needed to happen and it made the world so much more vivid. Also just because she goes on a journey does not mean she will never return. You will just have to read to find out what Ruby's journey is and what direction her path takes her on.

I can not wait to have the world completed when we get Nightblood. Fireblood brings the heat and you will not mind getting burned!
