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.


  • Best I’ve read in a while

    Amazing plot and character development. Detailed without dragging, slowly progressing or being a bore. Several well executed plot twists and blindsides. And a healthy portion in the first installment of the series. Many authors may have broken this into multiple books. Great Job to Sarah and all involved. Looking forward to the next in the series.
  • Captivating and outrageously good

    Enthralling….absolutely stunning world development and character progression. I’m a first time reader of Sarah Maas and I’m literally dying for the next book in this series! Read it, you’ll love it. Her writing is by far brilliant. I’m a Sarah Maas reader foe life now.

    It took me a while to get into the characters, the world building and the plot, but by the end of the book, the last few chapters made me cry harder than I’ve ever cried while reading a book. I can’t wait for book two!

  • Amazing

    By KC in Houston
    One of the best books I have read all year. At first I didn’t like all the different character perspectives but it really helped to tell and enhance the story. Especially once the action picked up. I cried, laughed, and was blown away. So many surprises so many twists. It’s a mystery, an action thriller, a journey of friendship and fighting depression. This may be my favorite work by SM.
  • Great read
