Book Review: Fireblood, by Elly Blake (2017).

I really enjoyed the storyline Ruby has with her suitors. This love triangle makes an amusing secondary storyline, but her choice is somewhat a strange one. I thought her choice in men was quite horrible. And Ruby continues to rationalize his behavior, forgiving him and their somewhat toxic romance continues. But when it comes to relationships, each to their own I guess.

Overall I found this book an interesting read. The magic use and great way its used has kept me reading. I recommend this book to all age groups who enjoy epic fantasy. I give this book a rating of 7/10 stars.

Book Review: Frostblood, by Elly Blake (2017).

Frostblood: The Frostblood Saga Book One by Elly Blake - Books ...

This is the story of Ruby and her journey to change the world. Ruby, a Fireblood, who lives in the lands ruled by Frostbloods, finds herself an imprisoned orphan after soldiers kill her mother and take her away for questioning. Just as all hope seems to be lost, Ruby is rescued by what appears to be Frostblood monks. Which is just the beginning of many challenges Ruby has to face. Thankfully she finds friends to help her along the way.

I enjoyed the storyline of Ruby. She is a very strong female character. I love the way she takes charge of situations even though she doesn’t really have the power to do so! She simply makes a decision and sticks to it. The book is written in an easy to read style, and becomes quite a page turner the further along in the book you get.

Overall, I feel Frostblood is a fantastic beginning to an epic fantasy story that has made me eager to read the next book. I recommend this book to the young adult fantasy lovers and older. I give this book a rating of 7.5/10 stars.
