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.

Slow to start but the OMG.. Just read it. It’s low flame though. Hopefully that will change in book 2.

A fun and fantastic adventure!!. This book is so well written. I was crying by the end. So many emotions and the action and intrigue. Fantastic. Impossible to put down. This is one of those books you stay up all night reading. 10/10!

It was ok. The beginning of the book took me two months to finish. Once I got past page 400ish the book went by pretty fast. In the last 200 pages I wanted to give up again because of how slow it got. The ending felt rushed and some of the reveals were really cheesy. All that being said I am curious to see what happens in the second book. I don’t think I would recommend this to anyone. So much of the book could have been left out and the plot would have been just as interesting.

Great story. I loved this book. At first I did not, there was so much information about worlds that was hard to understand at first & so many character introductions that it was hard to keep focus and get into the book. But after a few chapters the writer really drags you in! Such an interesting and exciting world she paints and I loved all the main characters. I wish there was a little more sex haha but overall great read

I tried. I really tried to read this but it was honestly irritating to get through. I didn't enjoy the language choices and it felt juvenile for an adult book. Couldn't make it through deep enough to see if there were other writing elements that would make it worth it (i.e. plot developments and what not)

Long but worth it. If someone doesn’t buy the rights to make this a movie they are crazy!

Unreal. I have had this sample sitting in my Books app for like an entire year because I started reading, got distracted after the first couple pages, and then forgot all about it. Well I finally got around to reading it and good God. I cannot believe I have had this absolute MARVEL just sitting in my phone for so long and I never knew. This book is incredible. The characters are so intricate and complex. The stakes are high throughout and the plot is so intriguing and the TWISTS are absolute BOMBSHELLS. I could not put this down. The romance is a beautiful, sexy, slow burn, enemies to friends to lovers (my absolute favorite kind), and the action is positively kickass. I cried multiple times. I think my ONLY complaint was that literally everyone was super attractive. Like there weren’t any very interesting appearances described, everyone was just stupid pretty which is kind of boring. But again the people themselves beyond their looks drew me in with their stories and developments. Highly, HIGHLY recommend this. I will be buying this and the next book in physical copies.

Wow!!!!😭😭😭. Okay this is book is amazing!!! I couldn’t stop reading it!

Struggled at the start but addicted by the end. Convoluted until 400-500 pages into. Then it fell into her normal writing style. Wouldn’t even call it world building just lots and lots of detail that muddled the first half of the book. Still absolutely hooked by the end as I feel with all Maas series

Hands down 5 stars. I thought I was obsessed with ACOTAR…… Hello Crescent City!!!!! The way Sarah writes has a way of entrancing you into the story yourself! I can not wait to read the next book and those that follow!!!! You will not be disappointed in this read!

My new favorite SJM book. 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

Love SJM. Absolutely love this book!!

I held on and glad I did. Reviews were right it was a slow burn world building that absolutely gut wrenched me into sobs by the end . Slapped kicked with pure emotions . Happy I preserved

Wow.. This had me crying… smiling… racing through chapters. Loved every second.

Slow start but keep reading. I absolutely loved this book, obsessed with it!!!! But I will say it took me a couple hundred pages to really get into it, and without a friends persistence about how good it was, I might’ve put it down. So good though, 12/10… so if anyone else is like me and ADD about story lines, just keep reading IT IS SO WORTH IT

Amazing start!. This is an incredible book. I love all these characters!

Awesomesauce. Riveting and action packed with twist I didn’t see coming! Loved it!

Five stars. Absolutely amazing! Sucked me in from the very first page!

SJM does it again with another page turner!. Great start to the series. Excited for the next book.

Phenomenal Escape From Reality. Slow to start as scenes and characters are set, but impossible to put down as you will Bryce on.

Eh. I had such high hopes for this book because ACOTAR series was incredible. The first 80% of this book was great. The last 20% LOST me! It was so repetitive.

BRAH!!!!!!. Simply amazing!!!!

Okay…. I wouldn’t read it again… it had potential, but it fell short and it was too long, the first half of the book was very tough to get through. I wouldn’t recommend this book but SJM’s other books aren’t bad.

AMAZING. I went through the ringer of emotions! 10/10 ❤️

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.

Great read. It’s a tough start but it develops well and hooks the reader through the last pages and beyond.

Loved it. Slow and confusing to start, but when you finally get the lay of the characters and world, man is this book good! Twists and turns, good love story.

So. Good.. 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.

Amazing book, hard to put down.. Really enjoyed this book - started slow while it built plots and character but the book really had you trying to guess the next move and usually had me guessing wrong. So many twist and turns and by the end, impossible to put down.

Twists and turns everywhere. Honestly this book was the definition of whiplash. The out of no where plots or revelations were so sudden and entertaining I finish this book in two days. I needed the answers. I’ve read all of Sarah J. Maas books and every book just get better and better. If you’re in to always been in your toes with questions then this book is perfect. The ending is perfect and I’m so excited to read the next book, I even preordered the new on expected to come out in January.

Highly recommend. I rarely write reviews, but I really want to write one for this book. I actually read it twice and enjoyed it possibly more the second time. There are so many reasons I like this book, too many to note. But to sum it, for me, it’s all about loyalty, friendship, and the truly extraordinary power of love., that transcends time and space.

Not sure. 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

Strong writing, Dark and heartbreaking.. It broke my heart over and over but I couldn’t stop reading. One of the best books I have ever read in my life.

Her best yet. It is a mix of ACOTAR and TOG. Buy it now!!!

AMAZING. SO GOOD. Lots of plot twists, and I love a fantasy, mystery, healing love story. Ends on a cliff hanger, can’t wait to read the next one!!!

Hold on because the second half is where the magic is.. The first third of the book took me months to read. I was not very interested. Then suddenly, I found I could barely keep up with all of the action, character reveals, and drama. It is beautifully written with painstaking detail to a magical cruel world! That’s why I kept going. I am definitely glad I did.

Amazing. I loved it. Could not put it down

AAAHHHHMAZING!. 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.

Long road. I absolutely loved her other 2 series of books and read them quickly. They were my first fantasy books even and court of thorn & roses series hooked me immediately. Throne of Glass is a little slow at first, but an excellent series, too. This book ends very strong, but the entire first half was a chore to get through. It’s like someone else wrote the first 700 pages. Boring dialogue and shallow characters. I almost gave up completely, but I am glad I hung in there. Stopped and started many times. At about page 700 it got really good. I’m debating about reading the rest of the series. Hopefully the editors did a better job with the rest of the books.

Crescent City by Sarah J Maas. Amazing. Mesmerizing.

Kinda wild. While there were definitely some parts of this book that had me happy and or crying, I’m not so sure this comes close to how good her other series are. I’m not sure how Bryce did not collapse from exhaustion a single time throughout the book because she took multiple emotional or physical hits each chapter. And unfortunately- bc I really do love SJM- the whole book came off as rather rushed and unrealistic in the number of miracles that happened throughout. That being said- I’m still going to read the second book lol 😂 .

Crescent City. Sarah Maas got me again! Cried like a baby off and on in this story. So good!!!

Don’t listen to the bad reviews. All the bad reviews are saying that the book is slow to start or boring. I do not share this opinion. Like any first book of a series, there is a lot of world building, character building, and amazing detail in the beginning of the book to set the story. This book, and the rest of the series, wouldn’t be as good without such detail. This book is AMAZING! If the bad reviews are swaying you, don’t listen to them!

INCREDIBLE BOOK. The story line, the backstabbing, the road to redemption, the love, the perseverance made for an excellently written book. SJM does not disappoint.

Loved it!. Fantastic! Kept me up way too late, way too many nights!

amazing.. i sobbed and i have loved all of sarah j. maas’ stories! definitely worth the read.

This book. The end of this book… I don’t know how she writes so beautifully. It took a second for me to get into it, but once I did, I couldn’t stop turning the pages.

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.

i bought the second book before i even finished the first!. wowowowowowow the twists and turns! the teases! the taunts! 10/10 would read again. ms. Maas just doesn’t miss plot: 10/10 pace: 9.2/10 was super quick at the end but when **cah starts monologuing, i almost lost my mind writing: 10/10 i was enthralled the whole time.

Great. Amazing!!! SJM has done it again!

Good Gods. This book was nothing short of amazing. I honestly couldn’t put it down. I’ve never read any of her other books, but I’ll definitely have to now. The characters, plot twists & emotion were staggering & I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Amazing. Omg such an amazing book! Truly one that I will remember for the rest of my life! Magic, power, attraction, action, raw and real love. Beautiful book!

Excellent!!. I loved it.

Not for me. I’m so sorry but for me it’s lacklustre at best. I have no clue why but this story held little appeal for me in terms of characters or storyline. To each their own, much respect to those with differing opinions and best to you all! Happy reading everyone.

Oh so good. I want to read it again it was so good ! Can’t wait for the next one..

Sarah Maas- all her books. I have watched every book Apple Book Store has featured and my mouth waters wanting so badly wanting to own her books. Apple your prices for this gifted author is outrageous considering it costs the author more to go to print than it does to offer readers on line access to purchasing a book that has paid for itself in print. The highest I will go to spending on any author from your store is $12.00, I have a library somewhere between 1200 books or more…. I lost count. Apple has made a fortune off my reading addiction. I have often thought of switching to Amazon simply cause their prices are more affordable and I can read for free with a membership. I have invested so much into Apple and almost have 500 books in my collection of “want to purchase”, carefully selected by my taste in books and that is what holds me back from switching accounts. Please start reviewing your prices in all your books with the economy getting tougher on the pocket book cause if prices keep increasing in Ca and the US in 2022, I might not have any choice but to find a cheaper vendor for my compulsive reading disorder, my most favourite thing to do and I would prefer to buy them from Apple than rent. Please advise with a comment. This is not reflective to this author as I used her as an example, I would love soooo much to be able to afford to purchase Sarah’s books but as a retired senior, I can not. Apple please advise if there is a possibility to get Sarah’s books at a more affordable rate?

Amazing!. Loved it!! Read the whole book in a couple days, just couldn’t put it down.

Truly engaging. Loved it , and am praying there story isn’t over!

Hooked.. As always Sarah delivers... Love this book read it 2 days. Can’t get enough of the raw emotion.

Mixed Feelings. This one really tugged at my heart strings. I was really heartbroken at the end. Not in an unsatisfying way though. The story takes a long time to really get going. There is a lot of setting up to do and laying the groundwork for the future twists and turns. I’m still processing how I feel about it. I’m glad I read it, but I’m not sure that I would ever reread it.

Long and boring. For those that love a ACOTAR, this is not for you. If you’re simply a fan of Sarah, then take a whirl. This book is long, slow, overly drawn out. People say “world building” but there not much/limited actual world/scenery descriptions. It’s just overly slow and drawn out plot points which is so slow it makes you debate DNF or grind through. It’s not mind blowing, it’s not captivating. It’s overly long for the sake of just being long. It took me 7 stop and starts to get through because it didn’t hold my attention.

Wow!. Very engaging read, kept me interested throughout. Detailed plot that obviously took major effort to craft into the thrilling end product.

Fantastic!. This book is so riveting. It takes a while to build the background and the characters but once the story starts to unfold, all you want to do is keep reading. I could not put this down except to sleep. Thank you Sarah for this wonderful book. Can’t wait for the next one.

Amazing book!. I am currently crying right now, I’ve bawled my eyes out for the past hour over this book and I don’t regret reading it even though it BROKE me! SJM is an amazing author and this book just proves it. This is the kind of writing I aspire to create one day. Still wiping tears away though. This book is AMAZING!

Wow. Woah

Excellent. Slow start but great 2 third of the book.

Amazing!. I can’t say I’m surprised that Sarah J Maas did it again. Like all her books the characters are incredibly thought out, you’ll never guess the plot twists or get enough banter! My favourite book so far! Can’t wait to see what happens next in February

One of the best. One of the best books I have read in a long time. I couldn’t put it down, read the whole thing in less than three days

Worth a read.. I liked it but the romance seemed a bit forced.

Love It!. Get it! Read it! You will love it. I want the next one in the series out now! Love this author!
