Summary from Goodreads:
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.
Fast-paced and compelling, Frostblood is the first in a page-turning new young adult three-book series about a world where flame and ice are mortal enemies—but together create a power that could change everything.

What I Enjoyed:
The plot. I dove right in without knowing anything about the plot (expect that it was fantasy) and was intrigued by the world building and powers.
Ruby. The main character, Ruby, (who thankfully is the only one who narrates the novel) was kick-ass and I enjoyed her actions/struggle with good vs evil. The other characters (love interests and side characters) were great as well.
The writing. I enjoyed the authors writing style and the her world building. I cannot wait to read more! :)
What I Did Not Care For:
The pacing. I usually dislike slow pacing but this time I found myself not liking how quicky the story was progressing. It actually felt like the end did not leave much room for a second novel and that the main plot was a bit rushed.
I recommend checking out this new fantasy when it comes out at the end of the month~ :)
