House of Earth and Blood – Sarah J. Maas

Review From User :

4.5 Stars

I know it's not "cool" to like SJM books anymore...all the cool kids say she's tired, she doesn't have enough "rep" in her books, she's too trope-y, her males are too "masculine," angels and fae have been done too many times before, blah, blah, fucking blah...

I'm not here to rate the literary elements here, people.
I'm not here to ferret out any imagined or un-imagined social warrior stances in a barely adult Urban Fantasy book meant for entertainment.

And this was scrumptious.

Was the beginning somewhat clunky and hard to get into Yes. But I was prepared. And that should be expected in almost any first in a new fantasy series.

Was it too long Yeah, probably. But I also wouldn't trade in any of the length and, in turn, lose any of the world/character-building.

Did a lot of the characters remind me of characters from her other books Sure.

But again, I don't care.
At the end of any given day, I am just a basic bitch who reads for ENTERTAINMENT.
And I found this book to be 800 pages of a good time.

Can't wait for book two.
