This year, Sarah J. Maas released the second novel in her mammoth new series – Crescent City – House of Sky and Breath. Here, we go back to the first novel in the series, House of Earth and Blood.
Sarah J. Maas’ new series Crescent City kicks off with the first novel – House of Earth and Blood – the second novel in the series, House of Sky and Breath, is out now too. The novel revolves around Bryce Quinlan, a notorious party girl. Her life is torn to shreds when her closest friends are savagely murdered, leaving her utterly devastated. When the murders start happening again, Bryce is asked to be the centre of the investigation, taking up the offer to avenge their deaths. Hunt Athalar, a notorious Fallen angel now enslaved to the Archangels, is roped in to act as her protector and partner in the investigation. As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into the root of the investigation, they uncover the underbelly of the city and its power, one based on corruption to the very centre.
It’s a blazing, passionate story that moves at a breathless speed, including searing romance, twists and turns and suspense. It’s as richly inventive as we have come to expect from Maas, though with perhaps less likeable characters than we have come to expect from Maas.
