Book Overview

A #1 New York Times bestseller

Sarah J. Maas's bestselling Crescent City series begins with House of Earth and Blood, which follows the story of half-Fae and half-human Bryce Quinlan as she seeks revenge in a contemporary fantasy world of magic, danger, and searing romance.

Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life-working hard all day and partying all night-until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She'll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.

Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose-to assassinate his boss's enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he's offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.

As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City's underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion-one that could set them both free, if they'd only let it.

With unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and page-turning suspense, this richly inventive new fantasy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas delves into the heartache of loss, the price of freedom-and the power of love.

   Lots of action
This book was full of action and details that really made it a strong book, in my opinion. The sexual tension was high and had me slamming my book closed every time they almost kiss but get interrupted. It happens a LOT in this book.

Forced to work together, Bryce and Hunt become partners in finding out who is behind demon attacks. Each have their own personal reasons for needing to find answers.

There are twists and turns that keep the story alive through all 800 pages.

The ending was left wonderfully hanging for the second book.

If you’ve read Maas before, this is right in line with her work. Handsome and rugged winged males and snarky, strong willed women.
such a great new series from a very talented author! Fantasy, romance, action!
   Not one of Sarah's best pieces
Unfortunately, I couldn t get past the first 30 pages. I had a really hard time focusing on swearing and the seemingly immature and very childish interactions between characters. I'm a bit disappointed, since I love Sarah's work, but this seemed to hit a low point. I am also not a huge fan of urban fantasy and I did not realize that was the setting of it when I bought the ebook. Though I do not mind supporting authors, I do wish that I could return this Kindle version. But always looking forward to seeing what Sarah comes with!
   Could Not Finish This Book
I'm sorry. I'm sorry. But I am a fan of reading all the other books, like I read the ACOTR series several times. I know – and was certain that I would love this new series just as much. I tried. I really tried to keep reading, but the pacing is just slow for me and the characters are not as interesting as the other books. I appreciate the built-in building. But I feel it took too much time to narrate, but I feel it took too much time to record. I ended up at 50%. I just struggled to keep my interest in reading.
I had to return this, it was that annoying. I asked myself, was this juvenile piece of garbage really written by Maas? But of course it was because the characters were just cut and paste from her previous works. Another male love interest with wings? Another male love interest with wings? Really? I only got halfway through before I couldn t take it anymore. The good curseing and descriptions of body parts left me wanting a shower and not in a endless way. Just ew. I could not bear the thought of how cheesy the sex scenes must be. It's sad that this author is regressing. I never felt for a single minute that any of these characters were real people. Angels? Are you Angels? Wasn 't that already done by others and much more successfully? Skip this, read “Daughter of Smoke and Bone ” or even anything by Cassandra Clare.
   So very disappointing
First, I have to say that I have loved Rachel Maas'other series. Multiple times I read them, then deleted them both. I adore the rich and multi layered worlds and characters she has created. This is, however, in great contrast to this book. From the first page, details and names and worlds and gods are simply demolished no careful construction. There is no beauty there. Just a flurry of words and people and fractional and names that mean nothing. In addition, I understand that this is her first “adult” book, but as an adult, I don 't need a lot of language, innuendo, and adult content to make me feel like an adult. It actually comes off as very adultish and very less childish, this book doesn 't even feel like Sarah Maas wrote it. I could not even finish it. The second step is to see whether I can return!
   So disappointed
This book was disappointing, to say the least. I felt like the plot and characters were too similar to the Throne of the Glass series. Bryce is like Ailen, Hunt like Roan, Danika like Nyhemia etc. The portals to a hel like world unleashing demons. A princess in hiding with some rare magic that's the key to saving everyone. A bad boy love interest who lost his first great love and now punishes himself until heroin brings him back to life through the power of love. I could go all day, but I will skip to the point I'm trying to make. Sarah copied her own work and its disappointing Sarah.
   English teachers will wince
I am usually a Maas fan, but this reads like it was written by a breathless teenager who tried to cram every adjective and adverb she ever learned into her fiction writing assignment. Part of the problem is that, rather than letting yourself be gradually learned about characters and places slowly, Maas tries to cram it all into the first few pages of this personplace appearing. Usually, writers develop better skills with experience, so I am surprised that this author has regressed. At least, she waited until Chapter 95 to trot her overused eyes lined with silver line. An interesting story that deserves better writing.
