Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 2
Genre: YA Fantasy
What did you like about the book? An unremarkable book with a prominent cover. Doesn’t it look like Red Queen? That’s not an accident. Ruby is a Fireblood in a world of Frostbloods. A divergent world that reveals it is strikingly similar to worlds seen in Red Queen, Carve the Mark, among others. The drama of a fiery romance is also very reminiscent of Divergent. Skip this one, but recommend it to your teens because they will gobble it up.
Anything you didn’t like about it? Everything.
To whom would you recommend this book? Fantasy fans / high schoolers
Who should buy this book? Libraries where fantasy and dystopias are popular
Where would you shelve it? YA fiction
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
