Waiting on Wednesday #14: FROSTBLOOD - by Elly Blake


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine  that highlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating. On A Magical World Of Words, I include books and movies.


Frostblood by Elly Blake

Release Date: 10 January 2017.

Blurb: 
Seventeen-year-old Ruby is a fireblood who must hide her powers of heat and flame from the cruel frostblood ruling class that wants to destroy all that are left of her kind. So when her mother is killed for protecting her and rebel frostbloods demand her help to kill their rampaging king, she agrees. But Ruby's powers are unpredictable, and she's not sure she's willing to let the rebels and an infuriating (yet irresistible) young man called Arcus use her as their weapon. All she wants is revenge, but before they can take action, Ruby is captured and forced to take part 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.

I'm sure everyone in the blogosphere has heard of Frostblood! (And most of them read it too...).

But oh, doesn't it look so sexy and tantalizing and magical and IT'S LITERALLY FIRE AND ICE HOW AWESOME IS THAT?! The fire and ice idea was the selling point for me;  I'm a serious sucker for stories with ice in them, and they're just so beautiful.  The fire's awesome, too, and I just love the idea of them contrasting.
Oh, and the cover's gorgeous too.
I NEED THIS BOOK.






Anyone else excited for Frostblood?!
