“Against all odds, Ruby has defeated the villainous Frost King and melted his powerful throne. 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.”
I got this book through NetGalley to review. This was a well done continuation of this Frostblood Saga and if you liked the first book I think you will like this one as well.
This is a fairly typical YA fantasy. It is an engaging read and full of likable characters. The story itself is pretty simple and predictable. However, there are some great action scenes along with some adventure and interesting magic throughout.
This book is one of those fun and simple YA fantasy stories that is exciting and leaves you feeling good. It’s a quick read and an engaging one. It might be a bit too predictable and straight-forward for some readers. I, however, really enjoy this genre and thought it was a fun and quick read.
Overall I enjoyed this quick YA fantasy read. I would recommend to those who enjoy fantasy romance with some adventure, action, and magic and are looking for a quick and easy read that’s entertaining but not too complex.
