I’ve recently read this book, and I want to share my personal opinion about this book briefly. Let’s read what is in the book and why this book is so much popular?
Reasons Why I Like ‘House of Earth and Blood’ Book
I’ve read most of Sarah J. Maas books. Almost every book is well-appreciated by the readers. The secret behind her success is her writing stylus. She is the kind writer who will drag you into her writing like her novels’ characters will pull you into the book, the story. You will feel like you are a character. You can touch it, feel it.
In this book, Sarah J. Mass expertly blended modern-day and magic, humans and myth. The romantic story of this book was written about the love story of a half-fairy, half-human. We know fantasy is usually medieval or at least has a monarch or something.
But in her House of Earth and Blood book, she added modern life with magic like art or something animated stuff that you are seeing. Her writing and blend are two things that don’t mix actually, but she did it in her book, simply speaking wonderful storyline.
Every character, twist, and turn of the story will keep you on the edge of your seat, and you’ll feel like you’re watching a medical romantic movie.
After completing this book, all I can say, the story of this book has strong-loyal beyond-death friendships, love of family; both blood ties and not, steamy romance, attitude, heart-wrenching events that will feel you your own heartbreaking humor that will make you laugh out loud, and the suspense that you couldn’t accept at all :D.
I admit that this book’s beginning will be a little bit slow(maybe), even though you know that the story is being slow, but continue, the story, the romance, thrill, turns, tragedy will strike, and you will feel the story completely.
Why You Should Read ‘House of Earth and Blood’
This book is undoubtedly a masterpiece by Sarah J. Mass and is a must-read book for the fantasy genre book lover. But yet, if you feel confused about reading this book or not, let me make you clear that why you should read this book. The first suggestion for you is, don’t get scared after seeing that this book has 800+ pages. This book will be worth reading.
First Strictly Adult Fantasy By Sarah J.
Sarah J. has written lots of young adult books. But this book is her first adult book. The central character of the story is about 25 years old. That means the story of this book; the romance is deeper than her last few adult series. The story of this book is more mature and for a little bit older persons. If you are a romance lover, this is a must-read book for you.
New Female Protagonist
If you have read Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses, you are already a fan of Celaena and Feyre. This book introduces us to a new female protagonist, Bryce, a fun-loving young woman, and she is half-fae, half-human. You will love Bryce because she is smart, adaptable, and most importantly, she has survivor determination.
Romance and Thrilling Murder Mystery
In a love story, how will it feel if you get a thrilling murder mystery? Sarah covered the plot with romance, but she smartly included the mystery of a murder in the story that will give you a feel of the detective genre.
Finally I this is seriously a masterpiece by Sarah. I hope you will enjoy this book.
