Title: House of Earth and Blood
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Publication Date: March 3, 2020
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.Why am I excited?
I’m obsessed with all things supernatural so I’m excited to get an adult fantasy with a fallen angel character! Also, the protagonist is half-fae and there are demons and archangels and who knows what else waiting! To be honest, I’ve only read one SJM book, but I’m hoping this one will set the bar for me with this author. This just sounds like such an amazing story, especially with the whole murder mystery aspect as well! And OH MY that cover is stunning. I’m so excited to read this book because it’s going to be a BEAST and it’ll be the longest book I’ve read since The Priory of the Orange Tree.
