House of Earth and Blood is the first book in the Crescent City series, a new urban fantasy saga by Sarah J. Maas, the bestselling author of Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses. The book follows Bryce Quinlan, a half-Fae, half-human party girl who works at an antique shop in the futuristic city of Lunathion, also known as Crescent City. Bryce’s life is shattered when her best friend Danika and her pack are brutally murdered by a demon. Two years later, Bryce is still haunted by the loss and guilt, and wants nothing to do with the investigation that put the wrong man behind bars. But when the murders start again, Bryce is forced to team up with Hunt Athalar, a fallen angel enslaved by the Archangel Micah, the ruthless governor of the city. Together, they must find the real killer before it’s too late, and uncover the dark secrets that lie beneath the glittering surface of Lunathion.
House of Earth and Blood is a thrilling and captivating read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The book is over 800 pages long, but it never feels slow or boring. The plot is full of twists and turns, action and romance, humor and heartbreak. The world-building is rich and immersive, creating a vivid picture of a city where magic and technology coexist, and where different races and factions vie for power and influence. The book also explores themes such as grief, friendship, loyalty, redemption, and freedom.
The characters are one of the best aspects of the book. Bryce is a complex and relatable heroine, who is not afraid to speak her mind and stand up for what she believes in. She is also vulnerable and flawed, struggling with her trauma and identity. Hunt is a brooding and mysterious antihero, who has a tragic past and a hidden soft side. He is loyal and protective of Bryce, and respects her as an equal. The chemistry between them is sizzling and sweet, and their relationship develops gradually and realistically. The book also features a diverse and colorful cast of supporting characters, such as Jesiba Roga, the powerful enchantress who owns Griffin Antiquities; Lehabah, the adorable fire sprite who works with Bryce; Ruhn Danaan, Bryce’s estranged Fae cousin; Fury Axtar, the fierce mercenary leader; Isaiah Tiberian, the charming shifter prince; Tharion Ketos, the handsome merman general; Aidas, the mysterious prince of Hel; and many more.
If you are looking for a book that will make you laugh, cry, swoon, gasp, and cheer, then House of Earth and Blood is the book for you. It is a stunning start to a new series that promises to be epic and unforgettable. I highly recommend this book to fans of fantasy, romance, mystery, and adventure.
