Description

A #1 New York Times bestseller!

Sarah J. Maas's brand-new CRESCENT CITY series begins with House of Earth and Blood: 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.

    I absolutely devoured this book. It was amazing! There was always something just around the corner and I was constantly on the edge of my seat in anticipation. Highly recommend and can’t sit for the rest of the series.

    Having just finished the Court of Thorns and Roses series, I went right into this. So good. Couldn’t put it down. My family complained for the 4 days it took me to finish that they were tired of being ignored. I didn’t care.
  • Epic page-turner!

    This was an incredible read. I enjoyed every second. The characters are lovable, the dialogue has you constantly laughing, and there are many plot-twists you didn’t see coming. Maas did it again, I would highly recommend ❤️
  • I expected so much more

    The whole first half of the book was hard to read as a long time SJM fan. It was boring in the beginning and felt like filler. I was utterly disappointed with the main love interest. It read forced by the author and the characters don’t belong. They are better suited as friends. Also the main character shows to be weak in personality and dumb which I never expected from a SJM novel. Will I read the next book? Yes. Only because I want a new love interest and a whole lot more character development. Don’t let me down again. Please.
  • Rainy Day Read

    A book to snuggle in with on a rainy day. The Good: Some beautiful and kickass friendships, a powerful and satisfying main character arc, strong secondary character growth, witty dialogue, an exciting climax, and an imaginative world. The prose is also quite touching at times. The Bad: A poorly executed opening, a weak main opponent, monologuing by the main opponent at the climax, and a too-neat ending. I also was not a fan of the main romantic pairing. In my opinion, they were better suited as friends.
  • Possibly Maas’s best!

    To be honest, I had to re-read the first chapter a few times. Maybe because I kept comparing to Maas’s other works, or maybe it starts a little slow, but Once I just accepted that this is completely different, and got about 20 pages in, I found the plot quickly picks up and I couldn’t put the book down. I laughed out loud, and I cried more than once. The ending chapters are amazing. I didn’t think it was possible but I liked it more than Court of Thorns and Roses series and the Calena Sardothian series!

    Crescent City -Sarah J.Mass What an amazing rollercoaster fantastical ride , I’m almost breathless. The mesmerizing world building , In depth characters that while flushed out still held surprises. So good to be entrenched once again in the world of SJM.,can’t wait for the next book. Also loved the audible version. “With love everything is possible.”

    This is one of those books that I finished and just immediately became depressed because it was over. I stayed up all night reading it, crying my eyes out. Like, actually sobbing.
