House of Flame and Shadow (Crescent City Book 3)
About this deal
She nodded to the dagger at Azriel’s side, which had flared with dark light in the presence of the Starsword. The darkness seemed inherent to the three people standing across from her: a petite female in gray silk, and two winged males clad in black scalelike armor, one of them—the beautiful, powerful male in the center of the trio—literally rippling with shadows and stars. There was nothing to suggest that they were better than the pieces of shit Bryce had known for most of her life. While I am SUPER excited to read this book and go back to Prythian, I am SO FUCKING SCARED that something will happen to my Night Court babies. Speaking of the knife/blade, the truthteller is with Azriel somehow, and to reunite the blades either truthteller should go to lunathian or starsword should come to prythian, so I'm assuming bryce might need to take the knife to lunathian to save the fae.
The room is being described as being deep under the mountains and her comparing it to the likeness of Hell. She winced at the memory of that room beneath their palace, the records of conquests going back millennia, complete with their own unique dating system. So she’d sat, waiting for the handcuffs or shackles or whatever restraints they used in this world, but none had come. apparently the book has been leaked and people are posting spoilers of the ending on twitter/tiktok etc😭 thankfully I haven’t seen anything but just had to give you guys a warning to be careful! And, as far as I know, there were only three planets that were able to kick them out—to fight back and defeat them.She stalked down the exposed steps into the heart of the chamber, where three males hung from gorsian shackles in the center of the room. To me it is likely that it is more the prison rather than the CoN, and not even a a possibility that it might be the library. You haven’t seen it in fifteen thousand years, or spoken this language in nearly as long—which lines up perfectly with the timeline of the Starborn Fae arriving in Midgard.
Guns,” Bryce said, pointing to the rifle Randall fired in her displayed memory, landing a perfect bulls-eye shot in a target half a mile off. He’d had no choice but to answer the Asteri’s summons yesterday, but he clearly did not appreciate the reminder that his autonomy was a mere illusion, even on the misty isle of Avallen. The bell tinkled again, but Rigelus lifted a hand to the attendant waiting in the shadows of the nearby pillars. Someone has to start talking,” the short female said—the one who’d seemed so shocked to hear Bryce speak in the Old Language, to see the sword. Hunt Athalar has found himself in some deep holes in his life, but this one might be the deepest of all.Rhysand and Azriel looked pretty, but Urd knew the Fae of Midgard had used their beauty for millennia to get what they wanted. She is also the author of the bestselling Court of Thorns and Roses series and several spin-off novellas from the worlds of Throne of Glass and Court of Thorns and Roses. Polaris, the North Star—wearing the body of a white-winged, dark-skinned female angel—drawled, “There will be no ship to sail Cormac’s body to the Summerlands because the boy immolated himself. After a few brief months with everything he ever wanted, he's in the Asteri's dungeons again, stripped of his freedom and without a clue as to Bryce's fate.
Bryce Quinlan sat in a chamber so far beneath the mountain above that daylight must have been a myth to the creatures who dwelled there. Azriel has major ties to fey in Lunathion since he had Truth Teller and was the one that casually found Bryce. Stripped of his freedom and the happiness he'd fought so hard for, he's without a clue as to Bryce's fate. It begged the question: If everyone knew that the Northern Rift and other Gates only opened to Hel, why did the Asteri bother to expend such resources in hunting for her? I'm clearly seeing so many readers FREAKING about the Rhun/Lidia thing(you can see the amount of fanarts) and Hot Damn, I'm in love with this ship sooo much.No coppery tang lingered in the sterile air, no errant drops marred the columns flanking the chamber.
Much of the truth about Theia had been lost as well, either through time or the Asteri’s propaganda.According to them, they found Midgard little more than a backwater planet occupied by non-magical humans and animals. Perhaps that was also why Morven had come—to keep the Asteri from having a reason to explore whether the legend was true. Update july 19: OK LISTEN, I'm legit sad and dissapointed that my baby Rhun and purple color is not there( Not because Mrs Mass just clowned the hell outta me, no lol����🤡) seriously she really decieved us. Flickering braziers of something that resembled firstlight gilded the silken strands of her chin-length bob, casting the shadow of her slender jaw in stark relief. nonetheless, I absolutely love the direction this is taking, specially that we've seen many perfect bonds through the sjm books, which helps readers to believe that incompatible bonds are chosen, and I'm exited to see a deeper moral related to mating bonds like this.
