House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City)
Hardcover | 816 pages
#1 NYT bestselling author Sarah J. Maas launches the CRESCENT CITY series: the tale of half-Fae Bryce Quinlan as she seeks revenge in a modern fantasy world of danger and romance.
Half-Fae, half-human Bryce Quinlan loves her life. By day, she works for an antiquities dealer, selling barely legal magical artifacts, and by night, she parties with her friends, savoring every pleasure known Crescent City has to offer. But it all comes crumbling down when a ruthless murder shakes the very foundations of the city—and Bryce’s world.
For two years, Bryce seeks blissful oblivion in the city’s most notorious nightclubs. But when the murderer attacks again, she finds herself dragged into the investigation and paired with an infamous Fallen angel whose own brutal past haunts his every step.
Hunt Athalar wants nothing to do with Bryce Quinlan, despite being ordered to protect her. She stands for everything he once rebelled against, but he soon realizes there’s far more to Bryce than meets the eye—and that he’s going to have to find a way to work with her if they want to solve this case.
As Bryce and Hunt race to untangle the mystery, they have no way of knowing the threads they tug ripple through the underbelly of the city, across warring continents, and down to the darkest levels of Hel, where things that have been sleeping for millennia are beginning to stir . . .
