“In a kingdom ruled by a mad king atop a throne of ice and snow, being born with the magic of fire is a death sentence. Ruby was born with this gift though and while she tries to smother the roaring fire in her heart it becomes harder and harder to hide the truth in her small mountain village. When soldiers come knocking on her door they rip apart her life and nothing can ever be the same. Swept up in rebel plans, Ruby has nothing left to cling onto but revenge and agrees to become their instrument of death for the king who took everything from her. With the help of a stranger who warms her heart one moment and dunks her in ice the next, plus an old master frostblood as her teacher, her impossible task just might be possible. Filled with magic, well-done fight scenes, and intrigue this book had a little bit of everything I enjoy in a good book.”

Description


This New York Times bestseller is perfect for fans of Red Queen. An "enchanting and fast-paced debut" that "lights up the page with magic, romance, and action."
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.
Vivid and compelling, Frostblood is the first in an exhilarating series about a world where flame and ice are mortal enemies...but together create a power that could change everything.
