    This book did not disappoint I loved it. I loved the way the relationships were written. A beautiful ending to a wonderful story.

    (Really am not a fan of this cover though... :( )

    Ruby and Arcus are both two of the biggest idiots in the existence of literature, with like 100000 insecurities each and SO MUCH BAD DECISION MAKING so obviously I ship them like 300%!!! Every scene with them had far too much cringe and too much drama and I was so over that... BUT I STILL SHIPPED IT SO HARD I AM ACTUAL TRASH!!

    I honestly COULD NOT count the amount of times that Ruby did something extremely stupid. I feel like Ruby's moments of idiocy detracted from the main plot quite a bit...

    But the overall big picture plot was absolutely amazing!! The stakes in the series have built up so much and the ending was just !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ASFDGHJagdhfsuaytfdgakshia THE ENDING!! 10/10 would recommend!!

    (I still hate Kai. What a loser. I was most displeased by the way his character ended up in this book. Just so much hate on him!!!)

    Overall though, LOVE LOVE LOVE, defs go read it!

    Really good finale to this series. I love the Gods aspect to this one a lot more than in did in the previous two book. Ruby, Arcus, & Kia took this finale to awesome heights and give readers a satisfying conclusion. Everything really wraps up in this book with not only the main characters but we get more on the sub-characters.

    My quick and simple overall: great finale that helped me get a little more out of my reading slump.

    Nightblood is the final book in the Frostblood series by Elly Blake and I have been waiting to get this book in my hands since I turned the last page of the second book. If you haven’t started this series, now is a great time for you to pick it up since it is finished, and you won’t have to have an agonizing wait between books.

    Nightblood is the final book in the Frostblood series by Elly Blake and I have been waiting to get this book in my hands since I turned the last page of the second book. If you haven’t started this series, now is a great time for you to pick it up since it is finished, and you won’t have to have an agonizing wait between books. No spoilers here for this book but I can’t promise anything for the first two.

    Nightblood picks up shortly after Fireblood finishes and Ruby, Arcus, and Kai are headed back to Tempesia to see Brother Thistle as well as meet with Arcus’ court. He needs the court’s agreement to partner with Sudesia and the Queen’s forces to go after Eurus and stop him from opening the Gate of Light.

    Ruby has grown quite a bit since book one and now that she is carrying the Minax around inside of her, she is also fighting against the darkness and feelings that the Minax loves and thrives on, so her level of self-control gets tested throughout this book. I thought Blake did a fantastic job of reflecting the struggle that Ruby has trying to maintain who she is and not give over control. Ruby does her best to hide just how much the Minax is affecting her, but she isn’t always successful, and her friendships / relationship suffers because of this.

    Arcus is still swoony…in case you were wondering. All he wants to do is protect his people and keep Ruby safe. Unfortunately, he has little control over what happens with Ruby and more often than not, he is trying to figure out what is going on with her because she isn’t telling him everything. Ruby’s situation forces him to face the fact that he can’t always control everything, and he has to trust her. Add to this, the fact that Kai still has feelings for Ruby and isn’t necessarily hiding it, he is continually trying to balance his jealousy with the fact that he knows Ruby loves him.

    If you know me at all, you know I like my fantasy with a bit of romance and this series definitely comes through. The relationship between Arcus and Ruby was lovely and swoony and I loved that they weren’t afraid to talk to each other about everything.

    Outside of the relationship stuff, Ruby and Arcus are working to bring the frost court and fire court together in the fight against Eurus. The only way to stop him is to get to the Gate of Light and keep him from releasing the darkness inside. Along the way they find out key things that put their lives at risk and because of who Ruby is, she is the only one who can prevent the disaster from happening if Eurus were successful.

    This installment brings back some characters from previous books as well as introduces ones we haven’t officially met before. I thought Blake did a good job of bringing all the secondary characters into the main story and giving them a purpose. There were some twists throughout the story which is always a plus.

    A LOT happens in this book with regard to the fight with Eurus but I can’t tell you anything for fear of ruining any bit of the story. Just know that I had lots of feelings about everything and I wasn’t sure how Blake was going to wrap this up. I was worried…okay?

    Overall, I really enjoyed this series and thought Blake did a fantastic job of creating the world, developing the characters, and writing a story that kept me turning the pages. If you are looking for a fantasy series to start, I highly recommend this one. There is magic, danger, and plenty of swoony bits to land this one in my favorites list. I look forward to checking out whatever Blake writes next.

    It's time to say farewell to a great fantasy series. Ruby and Arcus deserve to be happy after

    they went through. Basically, my thoughts on the trilogy are as follows:

    was okay,

    was addicting, and

    was bittersweet. As a whole, I'd give the series a solid 4-star rating. It did have some tropes, such as the infamous love triangle and entitled Chosen One. However, I couldn't help but be entertained once I overcame my mild jadedness.

    Among the three novels,

    was the most stressful. Ruby often couldn't control her actions because of the Minax's influence, and that resulted in so many heated arguments with Arcus. Is there a direct relationship between the depth of love and the number of fights between a couple? Because it seemed like the more Ruby and Arcus loved each other, the more they bickered! To make things worse, Kai couldn't accept his friend-zoned status. Sometimes, his obstinacy bordered on sheer foolishness. Compared to the danger that the antagonist (Eurus) presented, all this romantic drama was nearly insignificant. If I had a girlfriend, I wouldn't waste my time fighting with her hours before the world's destruction. Oh well, at least everything worked out in the end; take a peek at the last page if you wanna know more. LOL

    This book was also the least predictable. I wouldn't have been able to foresee the plot twists if the author hadn't given such obvious hints in the narrative. When the identity of the real Child of Light was finally revealed, I regretted that I had never suspected him/her. I should also note that one of the plot twists might mess with other readers' emotions. People who have read

    are an exception. ;) Anyway, kudos to the author for being brave enough to take "convenient" risks.

    Ultimately, reading

    was a predominantly fun experience. I'm just not sure if it's a good book for people who are already quarreling with their boyfriends or girlfriends. #TriggerWarning hahaha. Kidding aside, I highly recommend The Frostblood Saga, especially to readers who are new to the fantasy genre. The world isn't difficult to grasp, the characters are generally intriguing, and the plot is always fast-paced. If I had time, I wouldn't hesitate to reread the series someday. ^^

    NIGHTBLOOD was a satisfying end to what has been a great series overall. There was plenty of dramatic action, a consistent plot tethering the previous books with some new aspects added in.

    Ruby took me on an up and down journey in this book, sometimes I was frustrated with her, but I had to keep reminding myself, this could be Minax-related or this could be her being flippy-floppy. She won me over in the end. The triangular-shaped parts were easier to deal with in this final book because there was clarity about where the feelings lay. Arcus is a bit of an all-round, cannot-do-any-wrong guy to me and my love remained strong for this man.

    I don't know why I didn't have the same connection with book three as I did with the other two but whilst I was interested, I wasn't gripped. I think it was storyline-orientated because as I have said, the character draw was strong.

    I look forward to what else Elly Blake can write, because she has shown such talent with this series and I am excited to see more from her.

    I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.

    , I used to really ship Arcus and Ruby but it was clear that he loved her more than she loved him. I just felt bad for him in this and thought that he deserved better.

    , the book read like it was the second to the last book and not the last. Majority is spent making sure something bad doesn't happen. I expected more action from this. This had more relationship drama than actual drama. Don't get me wrong, I love relationship drama but it was too much in this.

    , I was confused sometimes. This book had some contradictory things happening. The author had established rules in this book and series, and then doesn't abide to them or breaks them without explaining the reason. I had a-lot of "how' and 'why' thoughts while reading this

    Not all is bad, I did enjoy how it ended and there was a twist I did not see coming.

    Overall, this was an average read.

    ********************************************************************************This is one of those books where I won't really know how I feel until I write a review lol. I'm gonna wait on that before rating it but its probably in the 3-4 range
