Publisher Description

The Shadowhunters of Los Angeles star in this #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling 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 who killed her parents and avenging her losses.

Together with her battle partner 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.

Love it

I haven’t finished the book but I think it’s pretty good. It definitely focuses more on the romance then the actual mission, but I’m okay with that. I’m obsessing over Emma and Julian. I love how fearless Emma is and I love how strong and adaptable Julian is. It made me feel kindda bad about my parents who have to raise 5 kids. I love the sex sene on the beach, very well done, and I also like the small plot twists about mark being gay.

TDA book 1

To start this review off, I think the major point of this book is "Those who follow the rules miss all the fun". Lady Midnight is a great start to the Dark Artifacts trilogy. Like all of the other shadow hunter novels this book holds Clare's trademarks- forbidden love, parabatai, demons, Magnus, and a few character cameos from TID and TMI. This book was instantly familiar and I loved seeing the grown up versions of Jules and Emma (plus the aftermath of the Dark War). The storyline is fast paced with plenty of action and kissing. However, if you are reading this book for the same level of high stakes and bloody battles as the last few books of TMI I'm sorry to tell you that this book is not going to give you that. This book is very similar to TDI. Basically it follows the relationships between the characters more than their actual mission.
