Heart of Red, Blood of Blue by Rebecca Belliston is a stunning young adult novel about an albino princess named Gisela. When her first betrothal ended with her betrothed dead and a war started, she was sent into hiding. But years later, after all her siblings were killed and she was the last child left of the king, she was betrothed yet again, to a man much older than her. One night she ran away so that she could be with the man she loved, but when he is slaughtered and she is taken prisoner by her enemy, Bloodless Kristoff himself, her life changes. In order to save her life, she lies about her identity. Will her enemies discover who she is? Will she be able to end the war?
I really, really enjoyed reading Heart of Red, Blood of Blue by Rebecca Belliston. The book is incredibly well written, and I loved Gisela's point of view. I was hooked from the first page, and I never wanted to stop reading it. The story is filled with misdirection and plot twists, leaving the reader wondering what will happen next. The book also contained many suspenseful and exciting scenes. The story is action packed and super thrilling. The characters are all very complex and well written, which really adds to the story, and the relationships between them really make sense. The characters also have realistic wants that readers will be able to relate to. The ending will leave readers satisfied and happy. I really liked that the book had a page of background information at the end. I loved this book, and would definitely recommend it to everyone.
