I loved how there were many different mystical/creepy creatures.

I loved the world and this started brilliantly: the first chapter had action and captured my interest. I liked mysterious atmosphere.

After 50 % this was more about smut & romance than the mystery this book started with. This started to feel dragged and I lost my interest. There were some good twists at the end but some weren't really surprising.

OMG for that ending alone, stick it out through this chonker. Some of the best blindsides I can remember come from this author but all the clues were there. I love it, jfc.

Worth restarting this 5 times. Once I got about 200 pages in I was fully invested and this book just melted.

I consumed nothing but this book for 3 days, having finally been able to purchase a copy after waiting so long for It's release

Everything Maas writes is epic and wonderful. This new series is no exception. Please please read this if you like fantasy.

Finished this chunkster just in time. I was on the hold list for months and I forgot how long it would take to read the ebook. Bryce has assembled her Scoobies and they‘re determined to uncover all the secrets. There‘s a lot of spice 🌶 - some twists and a cliffhanger- and a surprise. All in all I enjoyed this book, but it‘s obviously a bridge to the next book 📚

This is worth plowing through for the (literally) explosive ending! It feels like a lot of convoluted plotlines in one novel and (this may be an unpopular opinion) I don't love S.J Maas's writing.... However, I appreciate the worlds she builds and the characters that I feel invested in ... so def worth a read, especially if you like/love the ACOTAR series.

The second in this urban fantasy series picks up only a few months after the last one ended, and it was so easy to get lost in this world again. Bryce and Hunt and Ruhn are great, as are the many side characters. Still a little TOO reliant on the Danika trauma (at this point what was she not lying about??) but loved the additional world building. Also a crazy ending that had me yelling IRL. Can‘t wait to see what‘s next!

I didn't enjoy this as much as the first in the series. For an 800 page book I felt there were so many sub-plots that felt thrown together and it resulted in the story feeling disjointed. Will I read the next book in the series when it's published? Yes. But I'm not waiting with bated breath.

Hmmmm. I think… that I don‘t like SJM in adult as much as I do in YA? The plot of this was excellent. But I found myself skipping past stuff that was just a bit… too much. For me. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I did appreciate that they‘d edited out some of the excessive f bombs which, IMO, were every second sentence at the end of the first book 😆 tiring. that ending though. 😵💀 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was fantastic. Sarah Maas does not disappoint and the ending had me nearly crying of joy. I dont want to spoil the ending but if you're contemplating reading this or getting into the Crescent City Series...this is your sign. Do it! You did it again Sarah and I am one happy girl with how everything "came together" at the end!

I read 19 books this month! Thanks to audiobooks and just having a lot of alone time.

11 were audiobooks! Now that it‘s nicer out and I can walk and run outside, I‘m doing little else.

Some of my favorite reads were:
Tagged book
Murder at the Brightwell
It Begins in Betrayal
Danger on the Atlantic

Clearly I‘ve been in a historical mystery mood.

Ok… does it take a while? Yes. Did I take breaks? Yes. Was I lost at times? Yes… UNTIL THE LAST 4 HOURS IF YOURE DOING AUDIOBOOK! Holy crap guys! I can‘t handle it. I was completely floored by it all and had my crazy, shocked (of course screaming) tears by the end. DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. Read it, persevere, and fall absolutely in love with SJM again and again. Hold this book to your chest and scream like me.

I‘m still plugging away at HOUSE OF SKY AND BREATH, and Casey‘s still sad it‘s so damned big. My hands are SORE, y‘all.

At first, I liked it heaps more than the first book. (It‘s got way fewer infodumps and redundant bits! Whee!) I‘m halfway through now, though, and I‘m starting to slip out of the narrative. It‘s slowed down, thanks in part to more repetition. That, together with the hand pain, makes it tough for me to want to pick it up. 😔

xicanti @Laughterhp I really wish I could‘ve gotten the ebook, but my phone‘s my only device that can run the library apps anymore and it‘s not something I‘d buy at full price. Sadness. Hopefully I‘ll have new ereading options by the next book‘s release! 7mo

I started HOUSE OF SKY AND BREATH this morning, and Casey‘s bummed about how tough it is to hold. Casey‘s not the only one. I can only hope it‘s a relatively quick read so I won‘t have to endure the hand strain for too long.

So a lot of people online think that this is not as good as the first book, I actually disagree. I think this is better, Bryce‘s personality flourishes.

Mrs_B OMG THAT ENDING! 8mo
Laughterhp I just finished this one yesterday. Yeah, that ending! I‘m embarrassed how long it took me to figure out where she was. 8mo
Mrs_B @Laughterhp it definitely helped I had just finished a court of wings and ruin before I read this. I‘m still in shock though! Can‘t wait for the next one! My hold came through today for a court of silver flames so that‘s the rest of my weekend… 8mo

Took me a bit, but finally finished this chunkster.

This one had a lot more adventures and risk in it. I felt like the first one dragged, but this one didn‘t. Also, it took me a minute to understand the ending. It wasn‘t until I saw something on tiktok that I made the connection. (No spoilers)

Also, I heard on a podcast that depending on where you buy the book, you may have an extra scene or ending. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Can‘t wait for the next one!

So so many unexpected happenings in this book!! It all led up to some extremely shocking events and knowledge near the end of the book which makes the the anticipation of the third book all the more intense! A must read for Maas fans!

LitStephanie So better than the first one? 8mo
451Degrees @LitStephanie I think so! It takes a bit again to get into the story. Maybe a third of the book. I was wary of the first one too but this one is really solidifying how much I like where it‘s going! 8mo
LitStephanie @451Degrees ok I will try it. There were things I really didn't like about the first one. 8mo
451Degrees @LitStephanie I totally understand your reservations. For me it was totally worth getting to the end of this book but I agree about the first book completely 8mo

My boy had surgery yesterday. He had 5 teeth pulled and a mass removed in his ear. It was a rough night last night, he couldn‘t keep anything down 😔

But he‘s on the mend today and seems to be feeling better! So we are getting some cone snugs, while I dive into this book.

Utterly fantastic.

Builds on the world and characters introduced in book 1 and impossibly raises the stakes and tensions even higher.

Funny and sexy at times but heartbreaking at others and always full of action.

The ending broke my heart, made my furious and delighted me all at once. Cannot wait for the next instalment.
