Nichts Neues an der Fantasyfront.

— Nicks

3-4 Sterne für eine gute aber manchmal etwas vorhersehbare Geschichte mit netten Charakteren. Insgesamt gut.

    Frostblood: The Frostblood Saga Book One

    Frostblood offered barely anything new. A bit of Throne of Glass mixes with a bit of every average fantasy element out there and somewhere in between I thought I landed in the midst of Ever the Hunted, although with better characters and a more humorous heroine. I´d love to tell you it was one of the unique stories that set themselves apart in terms of world building, character development and writing. But the truth is that Frostblood is quite average in all regards, that it doesn´t bring anything original to the game and that you see the twists and turns coming from afar. Hidden identities aren´t hidden and the next time I see a girl caught between two nobles, of whom one is obviously crazy and power hungry and the other is not crazy and power hungry enough, I will certainly scream. Frostblood tells the story of an unabashed girl who has no idea about the power she´s able to wield and is of the outmost importance to a secret plan of mortals, a higher plan of gods and some minor plans of minor players as well. She´s hardly learned how to control the raw strength everybody else already knew about, when she´s forced to compete against the strongest magic wielders in the kingdom and - of course - blasts them all into the after life. A dash of romance here, a dose of helpful strangers who all happen to disagree with the common opinion of, let´s see, the whole country and coincidences which obviously work in the heroines favor complete a story that can´t be called either good or bad, because we´ve seen it before so many times. I actually liked the humor and Ruby. She´s sassy and talks her mind, which makes her easier to tolerate than most of the other female leads, but she´s missing the spark that leaves you with some strong emotion about her. She´s okay, she´s nice. So is the rest of the characters. So is the story. I´m fearfully considering the next installment, which promises another unnecessary and troublesome love triangle in the midst of another war in another country. But maybe it will surprise?
