Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.
Happy Wednesday y’all! This is the last WoW post for me until the New Year, and I couldn’t think of a better book to share than this one. I’ve been waiting on this book since it was first announced earlier this year. I’m a huge Sarah J Maas fan and have read all her books. House of Earth and Blood will be her first adult fantasy (though I’m not sure how the publishers don’t consider ACOTAR her first adult fantasy, but I digress….). A fallen angel teams up with a half fae half human, not by choice, and a murderer is on the loose. Yep I can already see that this one will be just as bingeable as the author’s previous series. Don’t mind me. I’ll just be over here waiting and waiting and waiting for March.
Series: Crescent City #1
Published by Bloomsbury on 2020-03-03
Length: 832 pages
Half-Fae, half-human Bryce Quinlan loves her life. By day, she works for an antiquities dealer, selling barely legal magical artifacts, and by night, she parties with her friends, savouring 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.
Two years later, her job has become a dead end, and she now seeks only blissful oblivion in the city’s most notorious nightclubs. 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. But Hunt soon realizes there’s far more to Bryce than meets the eye—and that he’s going to have to find a way to work with her if they want to solve this case.
As Bryce and Hunt race to untangle the mystery, they have no way of knowing the threads they tug ripple through the underbelly of the city, across warring continents, and down to the darkest levels of Hel, where things that have been sleeping for millennia are beginning to stir...
