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.


  • Awesome pacing. I was never bored

    By Bmm1009
    This was awesome. Pacing was great and throughout the book, she filled in many pieces to be fully revealed at the end. I love I did not guess correctly each twist!!
  • Worth it!

    After ACOTAR, I didn’t think I could love again, lol, but she proved me wrong! Her writing is just exceptional!
  • Can’t wait to start the next one

    By crywolf_
    I really enjoyed this book and the way you never really knew what was next. Only thing was I wished it was clearer when the storyline shifted to different characters perceptions/feelings. But overall recommend to anyone that likes a twisted action fantasy
  • Fantastic

    By DarlingNikki96
    It was slow to start, but this book had me sobbing at the finish. That’s never happened. Such a wonderful story of love and friendship being the most powerful gift.

    By QueenOfHeartsJill
    But a little too hard to believe. Got a little ridiculous. Liked the other series better.

    By b_Lauryn27

  • Great read if you’re not a critic…

    By kellyj
    It was fantastic…. Ok.. There were some things that could probably have been better but this daggone book made me cry four times before it was all over and done with. And I would have given the book five stars of cheer perfection had the reveal not come in the form of a tire squealing hard left turn. I appreciate that she wanted to solve the “whodunnit” but I wasn’t fond of how she tied it all up. However once I shrugged my shoulders and got over it, the remainder of the book was PHENOMENAL. It pulled at all the heart strings, wraps up items that I had actually forgotten about after 600 pages and has a great lead into the next novel. I like the world building of the City and variety of characters! I CANNOT WAIT to read House of Sky and Breath!
