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.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    January 27, 2020
    YA author Maas (the Throne of Glass series) makes her adult debut with this electrifying series launch set on a planet plagued by conflict between oppressed humans and upper-class supernaturals. When a demon slaughters wolf-shifter Danika Fendir and her packmates, Danika’s best friend, the half-human, half-Fae Bryce Quinlan, turns from carefree party girl to traumatized loner. Bryce’s only comfort is knowing that Archangel Micah Domitus and the 33rd Imperial Legion have incarcerated the man who orchestrated the attack: a human with a vendetta against the wolves. But two years later a vampire with connections to Bryce dies the same way Danika did, suggesting the pack’s true murderer remains at large. Desperate to discover the truth, Micah conscripts Bryce to dig into Danika’s final days, and tasks Hunt Athalar, an indentured Malakim assassin doing penance for his part in a failed rebellion, with protecting her. Despite some murky worldbuilding that occasionally undercuts the intricate plot, Maas delivers a richly imagined tale spiced with snarky humor and smoldering romance between Bryce and Hunt. The villains tend to twirl their mustaches, but Bryce is a realistically flawed heroine with moxie and heart to spare. Maas’s adult readers and fans of Charlaine Harris will devour this ambitious, emotionally charged contemporary fantasy. Agent: Tamar Rydzinski, Context Literary.

    Starred review from February 1, 2020
    Acclaimed YA author Maas (A Court of Thorn and Roses, 2015) steps into urban fantasy territory in her adult debut. Bryce Quinlan is your average post-grad, if you can call being half human and half fae average. Still figuring out life, Bryce spends her days working at Griffin Antiquities and her nights partying in Crescent City with her best friend and roommate, Danika. The world is theirs . . . until the night Danika is murdered. Bryce spends the next two years in a deep fog until it is revealed that the wrong person was charged with the crime. Bryce must then work with Hunt Athalar, feared demon hunter and fallen angel, if she has any chance of finding Danika's real killer. As the case progresses, so does a burning desire between them. But a more sinister plot threatens to destroy them, and the city. The first in the Crescent City series has all of the fantastic elements, colorful characters, steamy romance, and action-packed plot Maas' readers look for. The mystery element presents a stunning twist, and the emotional depth of Bryce's relationships with both Hunt and Danika is incredibly moving. Fans will eagerly await the next installment. HIGH DEMAND BACKSTORY: Maas is the latest bestselling YA author to pivot to the adult market, and her devoted fans?of all ages?will be eagerly anticipating this one.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2020, American Library Association.)
