Happy Monday bookish people! It’s Monday which means it’s time for another book review post.
In this book review I will give star ratings to four categories and I will write a little about each one. I will try to keep it as spoiler free as possible. I hope you enjoy my book review.
Crescent City Plot:
To begin with I was undecided if I was going to buy this book or not because I owned the whole Throne of Glass series and the whole A Court of Thorns and Roses series but I hadn’t read any of them yet – plus this book is huge! It actually didn’t take me as long to get around to this book as I thought it would. I wanted some good fantasy and that is exactly what I got. One of the things that I loved about this book was how information and secrets was weaved throughout the book. The mystery it self had so many parts to it, and there was a lot of things that were a cause and effect. The tension in this book was so good, I didn’t know which characters were lying and telling the truth.
Crescent City Characters:
I loved the main characters in this book. Bryce is a very fiery female lead, I loved her wit and personality. I loved that she had flaws, and they were explored properly – they had consequences and this isn’t often shown in books. Then there’s Hunt who I think balanced out Bryce’s character well although he also got under her skin.
Crescent City Writing and Dialogue:
This book convinced me to read some of Sarah J Maas’ other books because I enjoyed the writing style. I especially loved the dialogue between Bryce and Hunt, dialogue is one of my favourite parts of books usually.
Crescent City Overall:
I gave this book five stars overall because I loved my reading experience and I really enjoyed getting to know the characters.
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.
