This review will be a little different as I had zero intentions of reviewing this book as I wanted to read it for fun. 

First off, I want to say I am a Sarah J. Maas fan. I have been since I got to read an ARC of Throne of Glass way back in 2012. I’m not a die-hard stan, but I overall really enjoy her stories. Second, I adored the first book in the Crescent City series. I have not reviewed House of Earth and Blood, but it’s one of my favorite Sarah J. Maas books. Yes, it does take a second for the world-building to click, but I love its exploration of friendship, love and grief. That book really shines in those areas, and it packs a heavy emotional punch. I cry every time I read the last 20% of the book, given the sacrifices people make for those they love.

If you’re a hard-core Sarah J. Maas fan, I think you’re going to love House of Sky and Breath book. However, if Crescent City is the only series you’ve read of hers or you’ve been on the fence about this series, I’m not sure this book will be for you.
