House of Earth and Blood
House of Earth and Blood | Sarah J. Maas
#1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas launches her brand-new CRESCENT CITY series 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. Half-Fae, half-human Bryce Quinlan loves her life. By day, she works for an antiquities dealer, selling barely legal magical artifacts, and by night, she parties with her friends, savoring every pleasure Lunathion-otherwise known as Crescent City-has to offer. But it all comes crumbling down when a ruthless murder shakes the very foundations of the city-and Bryce's world. Two years later, her job has become a dead end, and she now seeks only blissful oblivion in the city's most notorious nightclubs. But when the murderer attacks again, Bryce finds herself dragged into the investigation and paired with an infamous Fallen angel whose own brutal past haunts his every step. Hunt Athalar, personal assassin for the Archangels, wants nothing to do with Bryce Quinlan, despite being ordered to protect her. She stands for everything he once rebelled against and seems more interested in partying than solving the murder, no matter how close to home it might hit. But Hunt soon realizes there's far more to Bryce than meets the eye-and that he's going to have to find a way to work with her if they want to solve this case. As Bryce and Hunt race to untangle the mystery, they have no way of knowing the threads they tug ripple through the underbelly of the city, across warring continents, and down to the darkest levels of Hel, where things that have been sleeping for millennia are beginning to stir... With unforgettable characters 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.

This book was slow at first but picked up very quickly. I laughed, cursed, cried, and yelled but I definitely loved alot of the parts in this book. The world building and character development was wonderful. I truly enjoyed the adventure this book took me on. Now on to book 2.

I've been on an fantasy kick. I enjoyed it enough to purchase (and start reading) the sequel but I'm still suffering a book hangover from the Six of Crows duology. 4⭐️

I truly hate audible exclusive audiobooks of big titles but they offered me a trial and I need some sort of refresh if I‘m gonna understand anything by the time I get to the top of the library hold list for the sequel.

Here are my bookish plans for the weekend.

I've been starting and stopping 'Salem's Lot over the last few weeks but my copy of The Shining came in and I want to get to it so I need to get this book finished! I also want to get House of Earth and Blood refreshed before the next book comes out next week!

I won't finish all, but as long as I start I'll be happy 😊

So I‘ll be honest this was a bit of an uphill climb for the first half of this book. I was motivated to read it since I‘m currently home with COVID😷 I will say that it was a clever book with many unexpected twists and turns that made the second half easy to read through (took me two days!) I am gonna make this a pick because I did enjoy it outside some nitpicking that I have about the writing style.

Bookzombie Hope you are feeling better! 9mo
451Degrees @Bookzombie thank you! Feeling much better! I was lucky that it wasn‘t so severe🙏🏻☺️ 9mo

It‘s the first day of winter. Is it cold where you are? It‘s actually a little chilly here today.

My most anticipated book this winter is House of Earth and Blood. I really think this could be one of my favorite Sarah J Maas books. I can‘t wait to get my hands on it. What book are you anticipating?

OK, so here is my May wrapup. This month I DNF‘d two books and reread four. My top book of the month was House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas and I would have to say that my least favorite of the month was Dark Hunt by Kim Richardson, though that‘s not including the two DNF‘s.

This was unusual for Sarah J Maas because there was several deaths at the beginning. There is a lot of sexual talk that got uncomfortable and even a little morbid. There is likable characters and depth. The political situations lost me, the love story excited me, and the dealing with the trauma of loss seemed real. If you read this go slow and be attentive. I got lost because I read it in a busy time in my life.

Been reading a LOT of SJM - read House of Earth and Fire last month and the whole ACOTAR series this month (previously I had only read book 1). I've read Assassin's Blade before but think I will have to tackle the Throne of Glass series yet.
I ended up LOVING Crescent City book 1 and ACOMAF most, do you have a favorite?

Tera0707 I love House of Earth and Blood! I can‘t wait for the next book 3y

Sarah J. Maas is an auto-buy author for me. (I can hear Sara and Ashley snickering right now because I DO have a lot of auto-buy authors . . . but seriously, I've pre-ordered every Maas book since her first.) I had pre-ordered House of Earth and Blood as soon as I could, but I didn't pick it up to read it immediately. It's 800ish pages, and I wanted to be able to read without stress or tons of interruptions.⠀⬇️

UnabridgedPod So, now we're under quarantine, and my "to do" list has shifted radically. My stress level is weird--I'm an instructional technology teacher, so while I'm working to support teachers, we've also been on hold to see how our division is going to respond to this long closure. Anyway, all that to say, this past weekend, I had a long stretch of time. And so I picked up House of Earth and Blood. Wow. What did I think? Short answer? I loved this book! ⬇️ 3y
UnabridgedPod Want to know more? Head over to unabridgedpod.com, where you can read my full review.⠀

Who else has read this one? Who else loves Maas's work? What other good fantasy is helping you escape these days? I've been on a bit of a fantasy kick lately--what should I read next?

Curiouser_and_curiouser Such a beautiful cover. I've just bought this book for a friend. She likes vampire stories but I couldn't find any so I bought this, having a supernatural theme. I'm loving reading all of the recommendations 🙂 3y
UnabridgedPod @Curiouser_and_curiouser Oh, it‘s excellent!! And I think it‘s a great pick for someone who likes vampire books—a great bridge to something new. 💕 3y

WOW..this ended up being a way better read then I was expecting!! In true Maas style the main protagonist is female and there is a large cast of characters and very surprisingly there's a lack of things her other books are renown for 😉 cannot wait for the next instalment

I don‘t normally preorder books, but the little sample I read had me interested enough to do so! Love this cover also! Plus getting a book way after you paid for it, kind of feels like a present to yourself! 😂
Now to finish the many books I‘m currently reading so I can start this one!

Let me just say: I do not consider myself a Maas fangirl. I burned right through ACOTAR (I definitely DO consider myself a Rhysand fangirl). I had a like-hate relationship with the Throne of Glass series.

BUT... I downloaded the first 5 chapters of this new book on NetGalley, read it, and immediately preordered the book.

Officially excited for March 3.

🙌🏻

HOTPock3tt Yessss!!! Let me just say I am also a Rhysand fangirl ♥️😌not so much Maas. I adored the ACOTAR series but had to drop the throne of glass series due to cringey moments and boring storylines. But I am definitely excited for this one and will also be preordering! 🤗 (edited) 3y
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain Hey Jenni, do you want to buddy read it? 😃 did you preorder the print version or audiobook? 3y
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt absolutely! I preordered the audio on Audible! 3y

Chrissyreadit SAME- I loved ACOTAR! But stopped reading Throne of glass because by the time the next book came out I was not as invested- that was for book 4. This one sounds so good! 3y

minkyb Yet another author I have yet to read. Currently in a Leigh Bardugo extravaganza. Where should I start with Maas? How does she compare to Schwab, Taylor, Bardugo, and Durst? Love them all. 4y
GypsyKat @minkyb I have a really hard time comparing authors. But she‘s a great writer! I would definitely start with the Throne of Glass series. It‘s 6 main books and two novella, so 8 books altogether. I love that series, but I didn‘t really love it until Book 2. Book one is good, but my least fave of the entire series, so don‘t be put off if you don‘t fall in love immediately. It‘s so worth it to see it through! ❤️ 4y
