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.
OMG this book was epic!!! Everything I needed but didn’t know until I read this book.
Not going to lie, the beginning was a bit slow and I had a hard time getting into and understanding the world setting. But man, I’m glad I stuck with it. The rest is just perfection.
Bryce at first seemed annoying to me but I was soo wrong about her, I loved her. Everything about her but most of all her struggles. She was super relatable, her emotions and actions, yes she had her moments of stupidity, but at least she was aware of it. Once she made her mind up she stuck to it and most of all she was loyal to her friends and loved ones. There was nothing she wouldn’t do for those she loved. Her friendship to Danika was everything.
Hunt I also wasn’t sure about but ended up loving with all my heart. Her also had his struggles of course but also overcomes a lot and grows throughout the book. He also a lot to deal with, even without having to babysit Bryce.
Ruhn, oh my Ruhn , he stole my heart from the very beginning, if anything happens to him I will never forgive her.
I loved the humor, the snark, the romance and the banter we get along the way, we also get grief, betrayal, healing, friendships, love , actions and nonstop twist and turns.
The last 300-200 pages were insane, so much action and emotions, my heart was racing nonstop, I cried so many times it wasn’t even funny anymore. This book had me all over the place with emotions.
So even with the slow start and world building I have to give it 4.5 ★
I can’t wait to get my hands on book two, whenever that may be.
