I received this ARC while attending BEA last year in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this review.

I picked up Elly Blake’s debut novel, Frostblood, by chance at BEA last year. I love a good fantasy and when I saw Morgan Rhodes’ praise on the cover, I figured I just might get along swimmingly with Elly and her new world. And I was quite right indeed!
Fantasy worlds can be hard to understand at the best of time. Too much detail and you will overwhelm a reader and too little detail might just lead to confusion, but Elly does things just right! In this fantasy world we see two key groups, the frostbloods and the firebloods. And they both basically wield powers of their given element. Frostbloods are the ones who are more in control of things, in fact, firebloods are dying out. Ruby is one of the remaining ones, and is really the only one we meet in this book. Whether there are more out in the world in hiding is not something that is explored just now. Ruby is taken prisoner for being a fireblood and after witnessing her mother murdered, she wants nothing more than to take revenge on the man who killed her. It’s a few months after her arrest that she’s rescued by a pair of frostbloods, and in this world these two groups do not get along.
The frostbloods rescued her with the intent that she be trained and used to help take down the current frostblood king who is get a bit tyrannical in his ruling. But Ruby barely has any control over her abilities and has until the summer solstice to train.
Ruby is taken in by this group of monks, who for the most part, treat her kindly. Well, a few of them anyway, some treat her with disdain and others are just wary. But the one who drives her the most insane in the young man named Arcus who is always wearing a hood that hides his face from her and others. These two have no love or like for one another. There’s disdain and pettiness between them. But at the same time, it’s almost quite comical. Yes, Arcus comes off as cold and unfeeling, befitting to his frostblood nature, but naturally, the reader can tell there is a reason for that. He has his own story that we will soon learn as Ruby’s story continues.
I must say, I am quite the fan of the hate/dislike to romance stage of things. It’s very rare, when I am actually taken by surprise of a hate to romance situation. For the most part I can totally see when the hate will become love and that doesn’t really bother me too much. What I tend to like about this scenario is how long the love takes to build. To me, that speaks of real life romance. I’d like to think it will take time before true feelings and love come about and we totally get that here. Granted it might come somewhat early page count wise, but a book can only be so long, unfortunately! ;)
The second half of the book was really quite exciting. Ruby is taken prisoner (again) by the king, this time! And he has a special hate for firebloods, but instead of an outright execution he’s a fan of the good old Roman days of Colosseum battles and fights to the death. Ruby is pitted against enemy after enemy all while the king and his power source are within her reach.
The book is divided into two parts, the first part has a nice slow burn of buildup. We’re learning about the characters, the world, seeing things slowly begin to develop, while the second part is where a lot of action takes place. We get encounters with our villain and an even greater evil as well! There was so much to this part! So many shocks and surprises! It was amazing!
The ending to this one was perfect! We get a nice roundabout conclusion, yet Elly still leaves a few minor threads dangling to keep us hooked and awaiting release of the next book. Because there has to be a next book! And curse my reading this one early! While the cliffhanger rates very low on the agonizing scale of needing the next book now, I still need to have the next book now because I just want to know what will happen to these characters that I have come to love so completely!
Frostblood is definitely one incredibly amazing fantasy read that had me turning the pages as fast as I could! It was an exciting and thrilling read filled with impeccable characters and I am already looking forward to the next one! Be sure to add Elly Blake to your list of authors to watch out for! She’s already on the fast track to my list of favorite authors!!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas An epic and enthralling standout in the genre 25 de febrero de 2017
Por Fiktshun - Publicado en
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
A fascinating world, an intriguing prophecy, and awesome and deadly powers are just a few of the things that make FROSTBLOOD a thrilling and riveting one-sit read. Add in a curse, a quest for vengeance, epic clashes between fire and ice, gladiator-esque arena battles, dark forces, secrets, betrayal, tragedy, and a bit of romance, and you have a story that is unputdownable.

Ruby is a Fireblood living in a world where who she is could get her imprisoned or killed. Frostbloods fear and hate her kind and the Frostblood King uses Firebloods for sport. Born without the fiery red hair that would immediately identify her as an enemy, all she had to do was suppress her abilities and she could escape notice.

But her curiosity about her powers and her carelessness in concealing them meant discovery was inevitable. She just never imagined her mistakes would cost her the one person in the world that she loved.

Ruby was prepared to accept her fate - a quick death by the hand of the King or a slow death in prison. But when offered the chance to escape, to avenge her loss, and to attempt to take down the Frostbloods' dark ruler, she accepted. Even if the chance of success was slim and even if it meant working with her enemies to do so. Because even if they ultimately failed, the alliance would help her master her fiery powers and help keep alive the flames of rage that burned in her heart.

Elly Blake penned an amazing start to her series. She gave readers a heroine who is powerful, flawed, interesting, and sympathetic. She created a world steeped it in myth, with a captivating and exciting history, filled it with citizens whose abilities are polar opposites, a bevy of exotic creatures, and a ruler whose cruelty knows no bounds, and set it at a time when battles to the death were entertainment, when prophecies and legends were more than just stories, and when being a ruler corrupted or killed.

FROSTBLOOD is a standout in a genre brimming with tales of evil rulers, dark magic, incredible abilities, and clashing clans. It reveals a past that is every bit as engaging as the story’s present. It introduces characters to root for. It builds a strong foundation for the story’s continuation in books to come. It leaves readers in anticipation of what’s next without leaving them dangling off a cliff. And it does all this in a way that makes for an enthralling and heartbreaking and absolutely extraordinary read.

Ruby is a Fireblood living in a kingdom ruled by Frostbloods and forbidden to use her power lest she be killed for them. But when soldiers attack her village, Ruby has no choice but to reveal herself. An unexpected offer from a Frostblood rebel looking to overturn the current (insane) king propels Ruby into an uneasy alliance that will alter both their lives.

I loved the energy in this book--both Ruby's passion and Arcus's. I loved that Ruby was unflinching--that sometimes she had to do terrible things, and those hurt her, but she never lost herself because of it. And I loved the slowly smouldering romance.

I can't wait to see where Blake takes the rest of the series.

I can not begin to express how happy I am to be finished with this book. I haven't disliked a book so much in a while...To start out this book was very slow and where the idea of the plot was very interesting It progressed very slowly and didn't start to pick up speed till the second half of the book and even then it was super slow...I did not enjoy the relationship between the two main characters I have no idea why Ruby would fall for Arcus when he was such a jerk and didn't show any kindness at all. Some stories this works because the author goes into detail about why the character pushes away another character to protect his or her heart but Arcus didn't really have a reason to do so. I feel like the ending was very predictable and I kept telling myself if this ends in an exciting way I may read the second one because maybe this was a build up book but nope the ending was predictable. I hate leaving reviews like this but I truly did not like this book. I was so looking forward to this book because the story line sounded so amazing but overall i was so disappointed!
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas sets her down a dark path of vengeance after Ruby suffers from a terrible personal loss 23 de abril de 2017

Frostblood is a riveting fantasy tale about a girl named Ruby who is destined to change her world with her miraculously powerful Fireblood magic. However, her world is ruled by Frostblood, wielders of ice. Ruby's world is compelling and dark. We see gladiator type battles between fire and ice wielders, and Ruby is thrust into this sadistic entertainment because of the Frost King.

Ruby's Fireblood kind have been persecuted and executed for many years, and they are near extinctions. Ruby's carelessness and curiosity of trying to hone her power in secret, sets her down a dark path of vengeance after Ruby suffers from a terrible personal loss. Her single-minded determination led her to a mindset where she was ready to accept her fate, and be executed by the King. However, Ruby is given the choice to prove herself in the arena and is given the option to take her revenge into her own hands. She gladly accepts. The added bonus—she also has a chance at taking down the king and his dark Frost throne.
On her journey, Ruby meets a man named Arcus, a powerful ice wielder with an ulterior motive. Each question each others' trust and loyalty as their romantic relationship begins to build, and their past ties are revealed to one another. This causes great strife, and we see our characters trying to navigate their way through these new revelations.

Elly Blake does a fantastic job at creating a richly dark world, one that challenges Ruby and Arcus as our protagonists, and forces them to ultimately change their outlook on life and about each other. Elly has penned very real characters on the grounds that they aren't perfect. Elly allows her characters to face their own demons in their own way. She dabbles into mythology and sets up the dichotomy of the opposing sides: FrostbloodS & Firebloods. In the mist of this, a rebellion to take down the King and his evil Throne begins to transpire with Ruby at the helm. This sets up the conflict brilliantly and it will be interesting to see how it will play out in the next book
