Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood – Sarah J Maas | Excerpt Mini Review

1 week people!!! I’m so excited! I can’t wait to see what the masterful Sarah J Maas does in her first foray into writing adult fantasy. I adore the Throne of Glass series so far (I haven’t finished the last two yet) and the A Court of Thorns and Roses series is one of my favourites!

I had the opportunity to read an except a couple of weeks ago, below is my mini review.

5 chapters, that’s all I’ve read and I am hooked! Just wow! So much has happened – I’m invested in the characters, already have had my heart shredded just a little bit. The world-building has shown me the city with its various districts and faction controlled areas, rough ideas of the social structure and the types of magical beings populating the world, and some of the history.

We follow Bryce – a half fae half human. Looked at with much contempt for not being fully fae, working a crummy job in a mysterious galley. Her roomate is Dana – a wolf with a lot of promise and favoured to take over being the head of the wolf faction of Crescent City from her Grandfather.

The wolves protect their portion of the city, and in the events in the first few chapters we see that someone Dana put away is up for release. I will now say no more as to not spoil the story so far, but take a look at the book description on goodreads if you want to know a little more.

It was such a cruel place to leave the excerpt (I mean, that is probably the point, to get me to read more), but before I could wait until March, now March really cannot come fast enough. GIVE ME MORE!

Thank you to Netgalley and Bloomsbury for providing me an excerpt to read.

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
