I was looking for a Sunday post for today because my usual Six for Sunday has a tricky topic for today that my brain just isn’t awake enough for haha! I stumbled upon this post on Jill’s Book Blog, and thought it sounded like a fun one to do! Sundays In Bed With… is hosted by Midnight Book Girl.
This morning, I woke up and was desperate to get reading my BEAUTIFUL SHINY NEW MASSIVE hardback – House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas! It’s finally mine! I carried my copy all around York yesterday and am so pleased to have it! That said, it really is hench.
“Half-Fae, half-human Bryce Quinlan loves her life. Every night is a party and Bryce is going to savour all the pleasures Lunathion – also known as Crescent City – has to offer. But then a brutal murder shakes the very foundations of the city, and brings Bryce’s world crashing down.
Two years later, Bryce still haunts the city’s most notorious nightclubs – but seeking only oblivion now. Then the murderer attacks again. And when an infamous Fallen angel, Hunt Athalar, is assigned to watch her every footstep, Bryce knows she can’t forget any longer.
As Bryce and Hunt fight to unravel the mystery, and their own dark pasts, the threads they tug ripple through the underbelly of the city, across warring continents, and down to the deepest 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 Sarah J. Maas delves into the heartache of loss, the price of freedom – and the power of love.”
The only thing that I thought I might struggle with was the fact that it is so big and that it’s an adult book. I firmly love my YA! The first couple of chapters took me a little while just because I was trying to get my head around what was going on, but I think that’s just my brain whenever I read a new fantasy! I’m now on Chapter 5 and it’s all starting to make sense and I can’t wait to keep reading, especially since I’m hearing such good things.
Have you got or read the first book in the Crescent City series? What do you think of it?
