Product Description

Product Description

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.

Can we all take a moment and appreciate that beautiful cover? It’s covers like these that fill book shelves in a wanton fashion.

Lady Midnight comes in at 720 pages strong. It is a follow on from City of Heavenly Fire and is set about five years after the events of COHF. The story follows Emma Carstairs, ancestor to Jem Carstairs (Infernal Devices trilogy), as she hunts down her parent’s killer.

What did I like about this?

Fast paced (yes, even with the info dump at the start and at that length), and believable characters. I really liked Emma as a character. She was likable, strong, and I could relate to her on an emotional level – well, enough where I could bond with her and care about what happened to her.

In addition, we have some lovely supporting characters who are diverse as they are strong.The cameos from a few characters of the other series will delight hardcore fans.

What didn’t I like about this?

The info dumps at the start. I know that these series, though all related, are designed to be read apart from one another. But I found the rehashing of things I already knew a little boring. Also, this book is the size of a shed and I now have a sore hand from holding the book 😉

So, would I recommend it? If you love the Shadowhunters world I would definitely do so. If you’re looking to start in the world, I would leave this new series until after you have read one of the others. It will give you a nice little pay off when reading Lady Midnight.

Lady Midnight took me on a journey that I got utterly lost in.
I loved the way every character in this carries their own weight and pain, and slowly you come to understand them more thoroughly. I got so attached to these characters.
The plot itself was wild and fascinating. I didn't see any of these twists coming; every one of them took me completely off guard.
I also really enjoyed the appearances we got from characters from TMI and TID.
I loved Lady Midnight, and highly recommend it.

This book kept me entranced the whole read. The storyline was well presented, with many elements tugging at your heartstrings and making the characters seem more "mundane". It was an excellent read that kept the wonder of the Shadow World alive.

As usual another fantastic novel from Cassandra. I loved every page of it. Couldn't put it down. Now I have to wait until the next book in the series is released. Keep up the good writing. I love all of the Shadowhunter books.

Another brilliant book hoping a serial for Cassandra Clare. This story is heartbreakingly beautiful and hauntingly sad but at the same time triumphant against evil. I can't wait for the next book.
