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.

    This 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 !!!

    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!

    When I tell you I read this book in one sitting I’m actually telling you the straight up truth. It’s 3.45 rn and I’m emotionally drained but can’t stop smiling. This is the first and might be only review i write. But I am obsessed.
  • I think this is the best book I’ve ever read

    And 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
  • 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.
