I sat here and stared at this blank screen for a solid hour trying to figure out where to start with my love of Sarah J Maas! However, I am beyond annoyed at myself for picking up her book House of Earth and Blood. It’s part of a series that is not finished and I know better. I should have waited until there’s at least 3 books out before starting the series because now I’m just devastated with a massive book hangover. I much prefer reading the whole series like a giant book to reading one and now having to wait till… 2022?!?! Are you joking? Ugh I shouldn’t even have looked.
This book gave me all the feels. I was slightly confused at the start but once I got into it I was hooked! I borrowed the ebook from the Libby library and finished it in 21 days with time to spare.
This is not for everyone and I wouldn’t recommend it to most of my friends who read. My Literary Society wouldn’t not enjoy. But give me Fae, immortals, a strong bad ass female lead and add in cellphones you’ve got me hooked. I appreciated the adult content as well. Not enough sex drugs and enemies to lovers in most fantasy books but Sarah J Maas delivered.
I am still grieving pretty heavily so I’m not sure if my sobbing towards the end was repressed emotion or if it was just that good of a book. I have a sweatshirt that says “Give me romance, but make it dark”. This book is what I’m talking about it. Dark and twisted enemies to lovers working their own shit out along the way. I need book number two immediately.
