House of Earth and Blood - Cover Reveal!

Half-Fae, half-human Bryce Quinlan loves her life. By day, she works for an antiquities dealer, selling barely legal magical artifacts, and by night, she parties with her friends, savouring every pleasure Lunathion—otherwise known as Crescent City— has to offer. But it all comes crumbling down when a ruthless murder shakes the very foundations of the city—and Bryce’s world.

Two years later, her job has become a dead end, and she now seeks only blissful oblivion in the city’s most notorious nightclubs. But when the murderer attacks again, Bryce finds herself dragged into the investigation and paired with an infamous Fallen angel whose own brutal past haunts his every step.

Hunt Athalar, personal assassin for the Archangels, wants nothing to do with Bryce Quinlan, despite being ordered to protect her. She stands for everything he once rebelled against and seems more interested in partying than solving the murder, no matter how close to home it might hit. But Hunt soon realizes there’s far more to Bryce than meets the eye—and that he’s going to have to find a way to work with her if they want to solve this case.

As Bryce and Hunt race to untangle the mystery, they have no way of knowing the threads they tug ripple through the underbelly of the city, across warring continents, and down to the darkest levels of Hel, where things that have been sleeping for millennia are beginning to stir...

My Thoughts

As far as I know, this just came up today and I'm in love with it! It's stunning! I can't wait till January! I really can't wait to read this novel. It's her first full adult novel from what I know and I'm happy for it! Her writing was always more NA or adult rather than YA. 


  1. Truly awesome cover! On your recommendation I bought my first Sarah J Moss book, Throne of Glass. Very excited to read it!

  2. That sounds like it might be a book that I would like. I'll be adding it to my wish list. I'm loving the cover.

  3. I am so excited for this! After finishing ACOTAR (well, kind of) and ToG, I need some more SJM in my life (wow there are a lot of acronyms in that sentence). I agree, her writing always felt more mature to me and I'm interested to see how intentionally writing in an adult voice will go for her!

    1. I still need to finish ToG, I know I know... I'm so behind! Only because I just don't want the world to end. I love it too much. But yes, I'm hoping when she's actually trying to write an adult novel her writing will just be much better.
