Publisher's Summary

In this action-packed sequel to the New York Times best-selling Frostblood, Ruby must choose between her fiery homeland and the icy king who loves her.

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.

A few Issues But Not Bad

Overall, I enjoyed this story. There were a few moments where things just did not ring true for me, and I had to suspend disbelief a bit further than I wanted to, in order to continue to enjoy the story. However, that could have just been me.

It's a decent follow up and has more action and plot than many 2nd books in a series.

Give everyone a mustache to twirl

Everything is over-explained. To an absurd degree. Important conflicts are riddled with pointless exposition and villainous plan sharing. They'd be better written with mustaches so they'd have something to twirl dramatically. And the MCs never do anything. Giving these mustachey villains the opportunity to drone about their thoughts and feelings.

The female MC is even more inconsistent than in the first book. Her level of competence seems to be entirely dependent on artifical plot direction. She is also absurdly gullible and throws herself into ridiculous situations but comes out fine on the other end because despite being completely senseless, the plot gods have decided this was right all along. Also, in a fantasy series I expect to see some victory in each stage. At least something. But I cannot decide whether the world is a better or worse place due to the actions of the MCs. I'm leaning towards worse because they keep releasing terrible entities into the world. Finally, a grand plot twist in this book where a traitor is revealed was obvious from the first third of book one. The only person who didn't see this coming was the MC because she's absurdly naive. This slow burn traitor plot twist was not entertaining. It only made the MC more unlikeable for her blindness.

I will not be continuing with this series. I have had enough.

It was a good read

Ok, I like the book, for some reason am adapting to the narrators voice. I can say I felt a bit lost a few times on what the heck is happening but my imagination catch up with what the author was trying to describe and I can say it’s was a good book to keep me busy during my long work hours. In this book the author try’s to describe the gods and the reason for the darkness that is urging for war. It feels like Ruby is filling in love with the two main character and life is just getting even more complicated for her. There has been some clarity on her past and where she comes from. I can’t say more without spoiling the good parts. Happy reading!
