"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 Lunathion-otherwise known as 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. Two years later, her job has become a dead end, and she now seeks only blissful oblivion in the city's most notorious nightclubs. But when the murderer attacks again, Bryce finds herself dragged into the investigation and paired with an infamous Fallen angel whose own brutal past haunts his every step. Hunt Athalar, personal assassin for the Archangels, wants nothing to do with Bryce Quinlan, despite being ordered to protect her. She stands for everything he once rebelled against and seems more interested in partying than solving the murder, no matter how close to home it might hit. But Hunt 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.."--… (mer)

OK, this is my first experience with graphic audio, it is interesting. The book is fast path and action packed, not much description, Most of audiobook occurred via dialogs among the characters, feel more like an radio program of a show. ( )

I'll be honest, when I first started reading it was a bit overwhelming. The names, the cities, the races. Being tossed in the middle of this huge world, it was disorienting. Yet only a few chapters in, I began to fall in love with this story of beautiful people doing beautiful (and less than beautiful) things. Even through the last chapter, I've been surprised by every twist! Perhaps that reveals more about me as a reader than the plot itself, but I have been hooked regardless. I might have spent all weekend binge-reading, silently cheering for the slowly developing romance. What an intricate world so different than our own, but still somehow relatable with it's struggles and humanity. I can't wait to read the next book to see how the relationships and plot develop! ( )

relecture - on est bien loin du côté un peu nébuleux que j'avais ressenti lors de ma 1ère lecture pendant les 200 premières pages et je pense vraiment que c'est le genre de récit qui se savoure et s'apprécie à sa juste valeur après d'autres relectures.

L'univers tissé par SJM est juste incroyable et révèle un monde d'une richesse et d'une profondeur infinies. Le côté urban fantasy est parfaitement maîtrisé et permet l'immersion dans les ruelles de Crescent City où se côtoient faes, faunes et autres créatures mythiques.

Les personnages ne sont pas en reste avec ce bel éventail de personnalités qui évoluent de façon cohérente tout au long du récit pour s'étoffer, prendre de l'ampleur, grandir et s'épanouir sous la plume de SJM.

L'intrigue tout du long en haleine grâce aux mystères qui s'épaississent au fil des pages pour former un tout cohérent lors des ultimes révélations. On sent que tout n'a pas encore été dévoilé et ce n'était qu'un avant goût de ce qui va se tisser dans les prochains tomes.

Les thèmes abordés ont réussi à m'émouvoir et à me sentir investie tout au long de cette lecture.

Bref un petit coup de coeur (même si pas exempte de défauts). ( )

A Riveting Masterpiece of Fantasy – House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas

Sarah J. Maas has once again demonstrated her mastery of the fantasy genre with the magnificent first book of the Crescent City series, House of Earth and Blood. This book is a genuine jewel that merits every ounce of its five-star rating, spinning a rich tapestry of mystery, romance, and a universe full of magical wonders.



House of Earth and Blood ♦ Sarah J. Maas - A Review

Opinion
One of the novel’s major aspects is its unique protagonist, Bryce Quinlan. Bryce is an impressive female heroine who is tough, intellectual; she is a force to be reckoned with. What distinguishes her is her resistance to be pushed around by the Vanir alphamales—alphaholes as she calls them—who dominate her world. It’s great to watch a character who embodies both strength and intelligence, negotiating a complex web of obstacles with commitment and wit.

The fragile relationship between half-human half-fae Bryce and the angel Hunt Athalar aka Umbra Mortis aka The Shadow of Death gives substance to the story. Their shared experience of loss, both dealing with the grief of losing a loved one, bonds them together in a genuine and heartbreaking way. What actually stands out is Maas‚ handling of their blossoming romance. Unlike conventional fantasy tropes, there is little unnecessary drama, making their relationship feel genuine and grounded.

The genius of House of Earth and Blood is the outstanding balance of the major mystery-crime plot with the romance subplot. Maas seamlessly combines these two components, ensuring that neither overshadows the other. The murder investigation takes center stage, captivating readers with its complexities and unpredictability. BryceHunt’s challenge to uncover the truth about the killings of Bryce’s best friend Danika and The Pack of Devils is thrilling, with surprising twists and turns.

Maas’s writing skill emerges as she keeps readers on the edge of their seats, with each revelation more startling than the last. The plot’s unpredictability provides suspense to the story, which I’ve rarely seen in fantasy literature. The author’s ability to strike the appropriate balance between romance and mystery proves her talent for producing a diverse and interesting story.

Conclusion
In a nutshell, House of Earth and Blood is a fantasy masterpiece. Sarah J. Maas has written a mesmerizing story full of strong characters, a captivating mystery, and a romance that is both authentic and sincere. This novel is a must-read for fantasy fans and anyone looking for a gripping voyage into a world where magic and mystery coexist perfectly.
