Publisher Description

The latest Shadowhunters novel from bestselling 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.

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.

Perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Holly Black and Sarah J. Maas.

Lady Midnight was an emotional, action-packed, beautiful read and I've found myself not being able to get it out of my mind several days after finishing it. It's that good. It's got the perfect mix of mystery, action, drama and romance to suit anyone.
I really don't want to give anything away...but Julian and Emma were AMAZING. Every moment between them was so intense and the last few pages of the book honestly broke my heart and I know the first chapters of the next book will be painful to read.

A must-read for TMI fans

What a great follow on from the original Shadowhunter tales - The Mortal Instruments. Some crossovers from already known and loved characters, while developing a new storyline.
My only disappointment - my icopy is missing a certain proposal - what's with that, Apple?
