Author: Cassandra Clare
The Shadowhunters of Los Angeles star in the first novel in Cassandra Clare’s newest series, The Dark Artifices, a sequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series. Lady Midnight is a Shadowhunters novel.
It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.
Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions…
Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother Mark—who was captured by the faeries five years ago—has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind—and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?
Glitz, glamours, and Shadowhunters abound in this heartrending opening to Cassandra Clare’s Dark Artifices series.
Omg I was waiting for this book for so long and I must start by saying I was not disappointed! This was a different take on the familiar Shadowhunter world. I loved the fact that I didn’t feel as though I was reading the same story with different names. I do however feel that in order to fully appreciate this book you need to read the previous series. There were so many tie ins that I felt like I wouldn’t have fully understood without reading the other books. Also the novellas Tales From Shadowhunter Academy set the stage for an uncovering in this book and if you haven’t read them Lady Midnight will spoil you on them. I would recommend this book to everyone because I love this world but if you enjoyed the other series this book is a must read!!!! I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. Have any of you read it?
