Breaking the Spine created this feature – ‘Waiting on’ Wednesday, where bloggers could gush about their most coveted upcoming release. Here’s mine:
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.
Publication date: January 10th
I feel like I say this a lot, but what’s a gal to do? I must point out the obvious – in typical YA fashion, this cover is gorgeous! This book first popped up on my radar when I saw it on someone else’s ‘Waiting on’ Wednesday, and since, it’s been a prominent fixture in the blog-sphere for this meme. This only makes me even more excited for it. This sounds like it’s going to be action packed and edge of your seat, and I can’t wait to read it! And bonus – this is being touted as a three book series. There’s something about a finite series that makes me giddy. Also, the release date for this one is just around the corner, so I (and may others) won’t have to wait long!
