Excerpt: "Bryce Quinlan and Hunt Athalar are trying to get back to normal―they may have saved Crescent City, but with so much upheaval in their lives lately, they mostly want a chance to relax. Slow down. Figure out what the future holds.
The Asteri have kept their word so far, leaving Bryce and Hunt alone. But with the rebels chipping away at the Asteri’s power, the threat the rulers pose is growing. As Bryce, Hunt, and their friends get pulled into the rebels’ plans, the choice becomes clear: stay silent while others are oppressed, or fight for what’s right. And they’ve never been very good at staying silent.
In this sexy, action-packed sequel to the #1 bestseller House of Earth and Blood, Sarah J. Maas weaves a captivating story of a world about to explode―and the people who will do anything to save it."
My Rambles: It took me far too long to finish this one. I didn't get absorbed like I normally do which makes me sad. I managed to spoil the end a little bit for myself but it kinda helped push me through. I'm very very curious to see how the cross over is gonna go. I'm guessing Amren might be Asteri then, which is interesting and cool. I guessed at a big plot point and was correct though I did second guess myself lol. I feel terrible cause half of me wanted Hunt to die for real drama (everyone saying their hearts got ripped out and I just mehh) I don't feel as connected to Hunt as I have the main guys from Sara's other books.
I also struggled with this one, likely because it had been so long since I read the first one. Almost done with it and someone asked what the book was about and I just stared, cause I had no idea anymore lol.
