    Description

    Sequel to the number one New York Times best seller!

    Sarah J. Maas's sexy, groundbreaking Crescent City series continues with the second installment.

    Bryce Quinlan and Hunt Athalar are trying to get back to normal - they may have saved Crescent City, but with so much upheaval in their lives lately, they mostly want a chance to relax. Slow down. Figure out what the future holds.

    The Asteri have kept their word so far, leaving Bryce and Hunt alone. But with the rebels chipping away at the Asteri's power, the threat the rulers pose is growing. As Bryce, Hunt, and their friends get pulled into the rebels' plans, the choice becomes clear: Stay silent while others are oppressed or fight for what's right. And they've never been very good at staying silent.

    In this sexy, action-packed sequel to the number one best seller House of Earth and Blood, Sarah J. Maas weaves a captivating story of a world about to explode - and the people who will do anything to save it.

    20 hr prologue to 7 hr book and 1 hr not-finale

    Gah! It’s an Empire Strikes Back middle book, in both good and bad ways.

    Good
    I loved the first book, with its fresh, snarky and compelling urban fantasy story. For the first twenty hours of this book, I was captivated by the expanding cast of characters, especially the storylines which showed old characters in entirely new light. Enemies become friends, friends lose their way, and the politics of magic makes strange bedfellows indeed. I like that, in addition to following Bryce and Hunt, folks like Ruhn and Theron have stories interwoven into the greater story.

    Bad
    This book was like The Big Bang of urban fantasy, with 20+ hours of ever expanding creatures, casts, plot, magic, technology, and magic. Everything from firebirds to necromancers to fawns to demons to harpies to dragons; guns to submarines to mech-suits; magic portals to healers to telepathy. It became hard to follow along and at some point I became desensitized. Storylines and characters abruptly drop off. For instance, we hear about Viktoria, Hunt’s ally, who got trapped at the bottom of the sea in book 1…
    and then nothing. You’d think they’d make plans to rescue her, but no (maybe in the next 27 hr book).

    Bryce and Hunt are starting to become Mary Sues. Bryce in particular picks up still more powers.
    There’s a stellar supporting cast, yet they don’t do much except get bailed out by the dynamic duo.

    Finally, I feel like this was a long, winding build up to a non-finale. Throughout the book there is hardly any action, then there’s a huge information dump in the final hour (where the baddies talk way too much given their supposed evil genius machinations), and then there’s zero resolution of anything. I went from being frustrated at the lack of explanation for the world, the magic, and the politics, to ten minutes of being jazzed at getting some answers, to being even more frustrated at the complete 180 in the final hour of this book. It went from The Big Bang to jumping through a black hole into a completely new storyline. Saying anything more would be spoiler-y, so I’ll just say that the twists will either make book 3 awesome or jump the shark. Given the number of loose threads, I’m worried.

    Random thoughts
    I am impressed at the number of strong women and LGBTQ players organically appearing (although the lack of racial diversity is odd, particularly with the gender diversity).

    I dug the “frog boiling in water” vibe of a world pre-Holocaust, where ordinary people don’t speak up until it’s too late to fight. However, some of the cruelty and torture got pretty dark.

    This series ventures farther from the author’s YA series and firmly into adult with drugs, language, and a lot of between the sheets action that, oddly enough, almost never actually occurs between the sheets.
    I didn’t keep track, but there could have been a dozen naughty interludes … and not just for Bryce/Hunt. As a reader of both fantasy and romances, this was just peachy, but folks hoping for more YA or fade to black treatment may not like all the naughty bits.

    Endured instead of enjoyed

    Honestly, a lot of the writing felt sloppy. Danica seems like a convenient excuse to fix plot holes now, and the editors really could have tightened it up to where it was half the size. The ONLY reason I’m getting the next book when it comes out is because of the last few chapters, but even then I’ll probably get the physical copy so I can skim/skip the annoying sections.

    Least Favorite SJM book

    Hate to say it but this book was just fillers until the last 8 chapters. I can normally get hooked, I struggled and forced myself to listen/read. A one time read is all I need for this book, but excited to see what the futures hold. Hope SJM didn't feel rushed and that's why this book was so lacking, hope we don't rush her future books either.

    It was okay

    I LOVE Sarah J. Maas. This book wasn’t on a level with her other writing. The number of characters and perspectives kept the story from flowing smoothly. Lots of filler. I’m assuming that some of the seemingly pointless parts of the book were giving information and laying the groundwork for what will happen in the next book. I had been waiting anxiously for this to come out, but the only part of the book that was really riveting was the last two hours of the 24.

    Lower your expectations

    This book was overall a bit of a let down. There was SO much filler dialogue, very little that actually happened and Danika continually being a part of the story is a bit of a rip off. Plus, for me I was beyond annoyed at the amount of sarcasm the main characters had, especially when dealing with beings that are feared and avoided at all costs. I hope the next book makes up for this, what a disappointment.

    Sarah J. Maas never disappoints.

    Chapter 78... I saw this coming. I'm here for it. I'm looking forward to the next tome.

    Entertaining

    I enjoyed the story, even though large portions are more reminiscent of porn with plot than a novel. But the dialogue is fun and the story development is too

    Awesome, pretty epic

    Though some moments the characters' actions or words had me rolling my eyes (cliche/over the top) I thoroughly enjoyed both books in the series - beautifully described magic and gifts, epic action scenes, interesting plot twists, the narrator does an aewsome job as well, even when voicing the males... loved it!

    Good book!

    I liked the story!
    The speaker is amazing!
    English isn't my motherlanguage but the different voices of the characters made it easy to follow.

    The story was really good and I enjoyed the plot twists. I never knew, what was going to happen next!

    What really annoyed me, were the sex-scenes.. I usually don't have a problem with the discription of love scenes, but it was nearly unbearable... If I drank a shot everytime the word "cock" was said, I would have been more drunk than Dek, ruhm and Flynn together... It was always the same and it killed the fun of listening for me.

    But all in all, it was interesting and I would recommend it to fans of S. J. Maas.

    Loved it!

    I‘m at a loss for words. This book is amazing! I’m speechless. All I can say right now now: It’s a perfect sequel. The world and characters are so intriguing. I loved getting to know the characters on a deeper level. I feel so connected to them.
    The speaker did an amazing job. Best book I listend to by far. Sarah J. Maas is my favorite author and I can’t wait for the next book in this series. I need more of Bryce, Hunt and Ruhn in my life. Much more.
