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.

My Review

This book is Amazing with a capital A! I can't think of anything I disliked except maybe not having the rest of the series ready to read right now. Gosh I need more!

I really loved the language in this book! It was gorgeous and fit so well with the story that I struggled to leave the world, finding normal speech a little foreign. Fireblood encompassed some of the coolest parts of different (awesome!) genres. It had fantasy, cool sci-fi, and wonderfully eerie dystopian setting. The romance in the book was also to die for and some of those tense 'fighting' scenes  really made me swoon!

The characters in this story are just brilliant! Zara (a name I always wanted when I was younger) is such an awesome heroine and I was rooting for her all the way. Sebastian and Devlan were also amazing characters though sometimes I really wanted to shake them until they told me all of their secrets, I didn't want to give my heart then have them betray me! Ahem, sorry, fangirl moment... I could really feel Zara's pain and confusion and all her other emotions really, and I found my thoughts/feeling on Mr. Princey (sorry Sebastian) changing alongside Zara's. 

I love historical fiction and though this is set way after our time, in a dystopian world, it is still very close in feeling to historical fiction as the new world has been rebuilt in the style of Camelot; round table, knights, and all!

My only real dissapointment with the book was some stuff that happened later, towards the end. It wasn't anything mind-shatteringly bad, it was just a few little things that I didn't quite agree with in the story, I would've liked a few things to go a different way, overall though I adored it!

I am definitely recommending this book if you like fantasy, sci-fi, dystopians, romance, historical-esque fiction, or actually any genre! It was a brilliant read and I definitely need to look at more by Trisha Wolfe!
