Bound by blood.
Tempted by desire.
Unleashed by destiny.
Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life—working hard all day and partying all night—until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She’ll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.
Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose—to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.
As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion—one that could set them both free, if they’d only let it.
With unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, 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.
When I read a Maas book, I always know I’m going to be in for a fun time! And this one did not let me down! However, it did take me a little longer to get into and love the characters! But that last 150 pages had my heart!
Bryce was an interesting character because she may have seemed superficial at first, but underneath her there’s so much more! Sometimes you just have to find the right person who can chip away at those hardened layers!
And oh dear lord, Hunt! Loved him! He was definitely like a mirror of Bryce! Both have been through so much pain and grief! I really liked the chemistry between the two of them!
At first, I just felt claustrophobic with so many fantasy and paranormal creatures thrown my way at one time. But as the pages turned, I really did fall in love with this world! There was plenty of action and surprises and I’m excited to see what happens next! 5 stars!
