| Synopsis |

Half-Fae, half-human Bryce Quinlan loves her life. Every night is a party and Bryce is going to savour all the pleasures Lunathion – also known as Crescent City – has to offer. But then a brutal murder shakes the very foundations of the city and brings Bryce’s world crashing down.
Two years later, Bryce still haunts the city’s most notorious nightclubs – but seeking only oblivion now. Then the murderer attacks again. And when an infamous Fallen angel, Hunt Athalar, is assigned to watch her every footstep, Bryce knows she can’t forget any longer.
As Bryce and Hunt fight to unravel the mystery and their own dark pasts, the threads they tug ripple through the underbelly of the city, across warring continents, and down to the deepest levels of Hel, where things that have been sleeping for millennia are beginning to stir …
With unforgettable characters 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.

| My Thoughts |

I haven’t read much by Sarah J Maas, I have read ACOTAR and Throne of Glass, but I haven’t carried on with either of those series. I absolutely loved this book. There were some slow parts but when the action happened I couldn’t put it down.

I love the friendships and the relationships in this book. I loved how some topics were dealt with. The relationships were a slow burn, not a love at first sight type of relationship and I appreciated that.

I really enjoyed the world that Sarah J Maas wrote and I really enjoy the way that she writes. I rarely get emotional when reading books, but I started tearing up in places, this is how I know this book was a good book for me.

It is quite a big book but I don’t think it was too big, everything in there made the story, for me and added to the reading experience.

As far as I am aware, this is going to be a series so I will definitely be carrying on with future books.

  1. Fabulous review! 😍 I agree with everything you said– the relationships in this book were definitely one of my favorite elements. I’m so excited for book two, but the wait is going to be so agonizingly long! 😩
