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.

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.

Another book I stayed up too late reading, especially the last 200 pages of a book. The world is fully formed, slightly based on the Roman Empire, but the various factions of the Vanir make some interesting complications. I also appreciated the serious plot twists that disrupted the traditional romance plot path. Twists and turns and reroutes.

Though there were hints of Nalini Singh's Archangel series, but nothing as blatant as the plagiarism of Anne Bishop's Black Jewels series in the later book of ACOTAR. ( )

i LOVE this book. Sarah J. Maas is certainly one of my favorite authors and I love the variety that she showed within this book. The start of the story bit is a bit startling considering the present day setting in contrast to some of Maas's other works, and definitely takes some time to adjust to. But once you acclimate to the plot line and setting you really get sucked in. The slow burn of some of the romance is done beautifully, as per usual, and love seeing these strong female leads that SJM continues to write! I have no faults other than the absolute cliff hanger we are left on - I am anxiously awaiting the next installment of this series! ( )

CW: alcohol and drug use, violence and gore, talk of past suicide attempt

For a while there, I thought I might not read this book despite loving all of SJM’s books and Throne of Glass being my all time favorite series ever. I know all the criticisms about her books and I agree with most of them too, so I guess I was just uncertain for a bit if I wanted to spend so much time on a new series which might have the same issues and is also such a huge intimidating one on top of it. But ultimately I couldn’t resist and it was a binge read without a night’s sleep just like I’ve done so many times before for her books.

No one can convince me that she doesn’t write an entertaining story because she really does and I get so invested that I don’t wanna put it down at all, and it’s what happened here. Once the initial hook got me in at about 9%, I spent the next 14-16 hours just binging the book except for small breaks for food and essentials. It’s not exactly fast paced but it’s quite engaging and holds your interest very well and is pretty entertaining with the right dosage of humor, angst, mystery and action. That’s not to say the book was amazing from beginning to end.

There is a lot of info dumping at the beginning and it confused me so much, because no way was I going to remember all the different houses and creatures and history of them all. Thankfully, it evens out a bit after the first 10% and the world building becomes more relevant to what’s happening to the characters making it easier to follow along. The book is also huge, so understandably the middle portion slows down a bit where we feel the action is lacking, but I never got bored and I think it just gave me more more time to get invested in the characters. But one thing I can’t deny is how vast the author’s imagination is because this book has so much - a wide variety of creatures and their dynamics, war, rebellion and oppression, a serial murder mystery at its heart and its investigation - it covers a lot of ground and I was amazed at the scope of it all. And I guess many of us fans were anticipating what an adult SJM book would be like, and while there’s a lot of swearing, I promise you it doesn’t have all the smut that everyone expects it to. And the last thing which unfortunately I can’t not mention is the usage of the word “male” over and over again still grates me and I really hope the author rethinks that. Thankfully “mate” isn’t that repetitive this time around ( )

The book was very good, though slow in some places. I had to stop reading and gather my strength to continue. Not because it was a difficult read, or because the story wasn't good. The breaks in between "parts" of the story were placed well, but not in a way that made me want to open the book back up. They were always, seemingly, at a bad place for the main character. I reopened the book with hope that the emotional hardship would not continue in the next "part".

Maas' writing formula for this book/series, is somewhat similar to that of ACOTAR. ACOTAR is a favorite of mine, so I cannot say i dislike this formula, more that it was very familiar. ( )

Well, this is my first DNF in awhile. I did make it to 25%. Which for this book is 200 pages in. I've just put too much into this book for it to still be this hard to read. I'm just struggling with it. So I'm going to pass, cause I just can't force another 600 pages of this on myself.
