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’ve read both ToG and ACOTAR series by SJM and this one just didn’t do much for me. The world was only so interesting and it took forever for the action of the plot to pick up. I wanted to like the characters but just didn’t feel that strong pull for either Bryce of Hunt. Not like the other series. The book was way too long for all the action to happen in the last 200 pages. I need to take a break before reading the 2nd book

    The book is fantastic, the finale is probably one of the greatest endings I’ve ever read! I was fist pumping at two in the morning!!! Couldn’t put it down.
  • Amazing

    By jryder12
    Quite possibly one of the best books I’ve ever read. The world-building is unmatched and the plot twist left me literally jaw-dropped. Love, murder, action, fantasy, friendship. A beautiful story. A book that made me FEEL. Iykyk
  • Hang in there…

    I had a hard time following this book at first; I had to go back and re-read the first couple chapters even. But as I adjusted to what I was reading, I became enthralled. This is an amazing book full of sass, action, adventure, fantasy and love! Can’t wait to start the next one.
  • What a ride. .

    I never ever do book reviews. . However this series took me out and under. Devoured in less than a day I became so enthralled with Bryce’s story. Yes it had no spice however the plot really makes up for what’s its missing.
  • BRAH!!!!!!

    It took me a few chapters to start to get the lay of the land and engaged in the story but once I was, I was obsessed. There is action, mystery, romance and the reader just gets drawn into the whole world the author has built. I am immediately moving to the second book.
