Publisher's Summary

The stunning third book in the sexy, action-packed Crescent City series, following the global best sellers House of Earth and Blood and House of Sky and Breath.

Bryce Quinlan never expected to see a world other than Midgard, but now that she has, all she wants is to get back. Everything she loves is in Midgard: her family, her friends, her mate. Stranded in a strange new world, she's going to need all her wits about her to get home again. And that's no easy feat when she has no idea whom to trust.

Hunt Athalar has found himself in some deep holes in his life, but this one might be the deepest of all. After a few brief months with everything he ever wanted, he's in the Asteri's dungeons again, stripped of his freedom and without a clue as to Bryce's fate. He's desperate to help her, but until he can escape the Asteri's leash, his hands are quite literally tied.

In this sexy, breathtaking sequel to the number one best sellers House of Earth and Blood and House of Sky and Breath, Sarah J. Maas' Crescent City series reaches new heights as Bryce and Hunt's world is brought to the brink of collapse—with its future resting on their shoulders.

Wow that was a lot! In a good way

Even though the cross over between ACOTAR and CC wasn’t as big as I hoped it was still good. We got a huge information dump that Bryce had to bring back.

We found out who Hunts “father” was.

The entire part with the three guys trapped in the dungeon and everything that was done to them seemed to drag out forever and was hard to get through.

There was lots of mini stories going on throughout the book. There was revenge, forgiveness, redemption, closure.

All the mini stories kinda came together at the end and showed many species working together towards a goal. Now they will need to move forward hopefully together

Too much time in tunnel.

Bryce still in tunnel with whole new world above. Will Ruhn forgive the Hide? Stay tuned and keep reading.

Loved how fast this moved

Really enjoyed book three and all the storylines of the many characters. Some twists I didn’t expect!

Maas Miss

Great narrator as usual. Story just not up to the standards of a Maas book. Her books are usually so well planned and thought out. This had lots of convenient magic to explain plot holes. Too many storylines to ever care about any of them significantly. Just an unsatisfying end to a series.

Entertaining

This was fast paced. It was entertaining and what I generally expect from SJM but also a bit anticlimactic in some ways. I wonder what the 4th book

Good but not as good as the other books

I love this world however there was a lot of jumping to different character stories making parts undeveloped and rushed. I did enjoy the crossover but would have liked to see more of the ACOTR. I missed Frye being included.

Still a good book just seems like it’s a building block for the world…. So excited to see what comes next
