House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas Book Summary
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.
House of Earth and Blood (Sarah J. Maas) Book Reviews
Epic page-turner!This book has everything! (Queuing Stefon from SNL 😄) There is mystery, suspense, humor, a courageous leading woman, HOT leading man, and romance! I devoured this book in a matter of days. READ IT! You’ll love it, too!.Score: 5/5
I think this is the best book I’ve ever readAnd that is not an exageration. I lost sleep over the past 4 days reading into the early morning because I literally could not make myself stop reading.Score: 5/5
This author continues to amaze me ❤️When I first started the book it was hard to get into, but after making it past the first part I realized she meant for the reader to be confused because that’s how the main character was. Lost and didn’t have her priorities straight. It made me appreciate the author more. After I finished the e-book on iTunes, I had to buy the physical copy as well because I was so excited to share it with my friends and family because this book is a perfect introduction into how amazing this author is. Every time they read this book they always ask “what else has she written” and are hooked. It is 100% worth the buy and I am so happy I spent the money twice on this book. Be forewarned it ruins all other writers and authors after you read her novels because she is in a league of her own. I have read every book she has written and her character development and writing style is so vivid and unique I feel like I lived the story when I finish it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has never read her other series. I really hope she continues this story but I am also extremely satisfied with how it concluded. I would give it 10 stars if I could..Score: 5/5
Best book I’ve read in a long timeHaving just finished the Court of Thorns and Roses series, I went right into this. So good. Couldn’t put it down. My family complained for the 4 days it took me to finish that they were tired of being ignored. I didn’t care..Score: 5/5
Could not put it down!I’m definitely a Mass fan but this book is my favorite! I was drawn in immediately, the twists and turns I felt all of the emotions in this book. Favorite scene is Lehabah’s moment. Tears every time! Great book, can’t wait for the next!.Score: 5/5
LOVED IT!!So so good! I was enthralled the whole time & loved the development of every character. Stoked for the next one❤️.Score: 5/5
Just Push ThroughMaas is my favorite. Might be a bold statement but I’m ok with that. Nevertheless, this book doesn’t catch you as quickly as the others. I wasn’t aware it was adult and the cussing that clued me in was a bit cringey. However, I think Maas has a way of making women complex and dynamic that is alway delightful. The beginning is slow, (the first third). I won’t say it’s not. The last two thirds are verrry very good. It’s worth reading if you are of age. I’m interested enough in what is too come. PS: my only other disappointment is that I think Maas is one of the few authors making the fae interesting/centering them so I would have loved more emphasis on them but that’s ok!.Score: 4/5

Crescent CityCrescent City -Sarah J.Mass What an amazing rollercoaster fantastical ride , I’m almost breathless. The mesmerizing world building , In depth characters that while flushed out still held surprises. So good to be entrenched once again in the world of SJM.,can’t wait for the next book. Also loved the audible version. “With love everything is possible.”.Score: 5/5
Best SJM has doneThis book is stunning. it has love, fantasy, adventure, mystery, crime, friendship and magic. I cried and laughed and everything in between. There is definitely some steamy content but hey its SJM first adult book and she went full send. it was hot and the characters were so well developed.the story line was dexhilerating and original. I love love loved it..Score: 5/5
Rainy Day ReadA book to snuggle in with on a rainy day. The Good: Some beautiful and kickass friendships, a powerful and satisfying main character arc, strong secondary character growth, witty dialogue, an exciting climax, and an imaginative world. The prose is also quite touching at times. The Bad: A poorly executed opening, a weak main opponent, monologuing by the main opponent at the climax, and a too-neat ending. I also was not a fan of the main romantic pairing. In my opinion, they were better suited as friends..Score: 4/5

I expected so much moreThe whole first half of the book was hard to read as a long time SJM fan. It was boring in the beginning and felt like filler. I was utterly disappointed with the main love interest. It read forced by the author and the characters don’t belong. They are better suited as friends. Also the main character shows to be weak in personality and dumb which I never expected from a SJM novel. Will I read the next book? Yes. Only because I want a new love interest and a whole lot more character development. Don’t let me down again. Please..Score: 2/5

BEST BOOK EVERWow. This book far exceeded my expectations. I couldn’t stand Bryce at the beginning, but her reading her story and person unfold was beyond amazing. Hunt was my favorite from the beginning. I hope we get more of his story in the following books since the book ended bringing it up his father. ANYWAYS, great book. It starts off a bit slow but man does it make up for it afterwards. You will not be disappointed! Hang in there reader..Score: 5/5
AmazingOne of the best books I have read all year. At first I didn’t like all the different character perspectives but it really helped to tell and enhance the story. Especially once the action picked up. I cried, laughed, and was blown away. So many surprises so many twists. It’s a mystery, an action thriller, a journey of friendship and fighting depression. This may be my favorite work by SM..Score: 5/5
2/10 would not recommendKinda sad it was hoping for better the main character was kinda annoying and lots of cussing I’m all for some tasteful cussing but it was a bit much I did like the world building though.Score: 5/5

Possibly Maas’s best!To be honest, I had to re-read the first chapter a few times. Maybe because I kept comparing to Maas’s other works, or maybe it starts a little slow, but Once I just accepted that this is completely different, and got about 20 pages in, I found the plot quickly picks up and I couldn’t put the book down. I laughed out loud, and I cried more than once. The ending chapters are amazing. I didn’t think it was possible but I liked it more than Court of Thorns and Roses series and the Calena Sardothian series!.Score: 5/5
All the feelsThis book is the best book I’ve read in a long time. Sarah’s writing just keeps getting better. I didn’t know I could feel this much from a book glad to learn though. Crazy plot twists has almost every genre fantasy, mystery, and romance. Read this book !!!.Score: 5/5
READ IT!!I absolutely devoured this book. It was amazing! There was always something just around the corner and I was constantly on the edge of my seat in anticipation. Highly recommend and can’t sit for the rest of the series..Score: 5/5
Huh?My star rating is irrelevant b/c I haven’t finished the book. After reading Maas’s court series I was super excited to read more. I went for this one and barely into it, I’m confused. The intro pages are poorly written with massive info dumps that feel really unskilled, the tone is still very much YA, at about a sixth grade reading level, the characters are YA age, just out of college...so how is this an adult book? I couldn’t get through the beginning. Not wanting to give up on her b/c of how much I loved her other books, I decided to shift over to her actual YA Thrones series. Immediately, the writing and story were much better. And what I was familiar with. It’s almost as if someone else wrote this. It’s weird..Score: 2/5

So blown away....I laughed, I cried...I was clinching my jaws at the end trying to stave my anxiety. It’s such a page turner!! Per the previous rating, there IS a lot of information dropped, but it’s only partially revealed information in the beginning. As you read, it unfolds and starts to make more sense. I did have to revert back to the beginning a few times but I was completely engrossed in the world that Maas has created. I cannot wait until the next book!.Score: 5/5

Always good but not her bestI love reading Maas, this book is really good but not her best. I felt like the language didn’t have to be quite so bad. I get what she was going for, but it felt excessive. As I read through the book I kept thinking “this book is ok but I wouldn’t read the second”, but then the last eighth of the book came alive and I couldn’t put it down. I love her ability to describe and grow characters, it always draws me in..Score: 4/5

I laughed I cried I couldn’t put it downIf you want a book that will surprise you over and over again then this is for you. It’s been so long since I picked up a fantasy fiction book years probably, I decided for my first one in a long time to be the one with the best reviews. And oh my god I was not disappointed. I was picturing vivid movie scenes in my head while reading this book, I was invested in the story and the mystery, and I found joy in guessing or trying to figure out foreshadowed events and being proven right and being proven wrong. This book will throw triple plot twists your way, it’ll fill you with joy and rip your heart out. I’m excited for the sequel. This is a must read, the price is worth it. And as someone who isn’t a big lovey dovey Romance fan I can say that this romance was well earned, but I truly don’t think this is a romance book. No this book is a love letter to the amazing love bond of friendship. What a wonderful emotional trip this book will take you on. Safe travels..Score: 5/5

Best I’ve read in a whileAmazing plot and character development. Detailed without dragging, slowly progressing or being a bore. Several well executed plot twists and blindsides.

Her best work yetI’ve read every single one of Sarah J Maas’ works of art (because that’s what her books are; art) and it’s still easy for me to say that is her best work yet. I’ve never ever been moved to tears by a book, and I certainly never expected a book about shape shifters, angels, and fae to be the one to do it. But it just goes to show the true amount of love that she poured into this book. The coming installments of this series will be HEAVILY anticipated..Score: 5/5
