“Sarah J. Maas has done it again! With Crescent City Book 2: House of Sky and Breath, she takes us back into her mesmerizing world full of intrigue, magic, romance and danger. Gaia is a strong and inspiring heroine who I loved spending time with as she faced fresh challenges in her fight to save her city. The supporting cast is equally well drawn- Khalid is the perfect bad boy romantic interest; Ayaan provides wisdom, humor and badass fighting skills; while Ren’s guarded nature makes him an intriguing mystery waiting to be solved.

Maas.”
