Review - Fireblood by: Trisha Wolfe

To save a kingdom, Zara must choose between a prince who could be the answer and a rising rebellion that threatens to take control.

When Zara Dane is chosen to marry Prince Sebastian Hart, son of the man who ordered her father’s capture, Zara knows she must fight to save everything she loves from ruin.

Being betrothed to the prince means a life trapped behind the towering stone walls of the Camelot-forged realm. Under the watchful eye of the prince's first knight, Sir Devlan Capra, changing her future becomes difficult.

When an unlikely rebel reveals the truth about the deadly secrets that fuel King Hart’s twisted world, Zara’s path to rescue her father becomes clouded by deception. The Rebels clear her path by forcing Zara’s hand with an ultimatum: sway Prince Sebastian to join the Rebels, convincing him of his father’s evil nature, or they will take him out.

But Zara is uncertain about a future under the Rebels’ command and where the prince’s heart truly lies. She must decide who to trust, what to believe, and what she’s truly fighting for before the king destroys all of Karm, including her heart.

_______________________________________________

I admit, this one took me a little to get into and I had every intention of knocking it a star, but now after finishing... I cannot see giving it anything less than 5 stars. Once I hit a certain point, I could not put it down. The world building is so unique in the sense that it mixes futuristic with historical. The romance is intense and sexy. And, the action explodes in every chapter.

I really enjoyed all of the characters in this story, even the bad ones. Our protagonist definitely had a heck of a ride in this book. From starting out as a commoner who wanted nothing to do with anything, to becoming someone so much strength. I love watching characters grow an change through out a story and Zara is a fantastic example of it.

On the other side, man oh sexy man... Devlan Capra. His name is HOT. His dark hair and pale blue eyes totally stole me. His strength and fights and intenseness just completely won me over. I absolutely loved Devlan. From the beginning all the way to the end, his role was played perfectly. I loved the changes we got to see him and well just everything about him. Definitely 100% new favorite book boyfriend.

Overall, I loved Fireblood. I absolutely love the fact that it's futuristic but actually set in an older time period. That Wolfe keeps the romance just as hot as I like it without simmering it down. That the fights are intense and wicked in every way. That there are parts that make you cringe and parts that make you want to fan yourself, and parts that make you laugh. Fantastic book and I will definitely be reading the next one!
