Seventeen-year-old Ruby is a Fireblood who has concealed her powers of heat and flame from the cruel Frostblood ruling class her entire life. But when her mother is killed trying to protect her, and rebel Frostbloods demand her help to overthrow their bloodthirsty king, she agrees to come out of hiding, desperate to have her revenge.
Despite her unpredictable abilities, Ruby trains with the rebels and the infuriating—yet irresistible—Arcus, who seems to think of her as nothing more than a weapon. But before they can take action, Ruby is captured and forced to compete in the king’s 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.
Frostblood begins with Ruby's village being attacked and her mother being killed because Ruby is a Fireblood, and the king wants all of them dead. Ruby is sent to prison, and months later she's rescued by some monks who want to train her to kill the king. As Ruby starts to fall for the man who helps to train her, secrets are coming out and she's unsure who she should trust, and what will happen next.
This book was okay. It wasn't great, but not bad either. It was a nice way to pass the time with, and I really enjoyed the world Ruby was in. The only thing I didn't like was how Ruby and her man were together, but kind of not. And I also didn't like how the rest of the series could go either. So, this one was enjoyable, but not great.
