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.

    This book is a brilliant start to the new series added onto the mortal instruments but with Julian blackthorn and Emma carstairs as the main charioteers . It is based 5 years since the dark war and is amazing and beautifully written! I greatly recommend it

      This book was amazing. If you love adventure, romance, fantasy, demon hunting adventure then follow Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn to find out the reason of the murders in Los Angeles. I simply read every book in the Mortal Instruments series and the Infernal Devices and the Bane Chronicles. Now if you have read these books this is a must read book for you.

        This book is amazing. The forbidden love is odd though but it is also good, but my favorite part was the love that everyone at the institute have for each other and what they would do for each other. Another thing about the book that I like is all the mysteries that everyone hide.
