Lord of Shadows

Book 2, The Dark Artifices

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller

Sunny Los Angeles can be a dark place indeed in Cassandra Clare’s Lord of Shadows, the bestselling sequel to Lady Midnight. Lord of Shadows is a Shadowhunters novel.

Emma Carstairs has just learned that the love she shares with her warrior partner and parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, isn’t just forbidden—it could destroy them both. She knows she should run from Julian. But how can she when the Blackthorn family is threatened by enemies on all sides?

Their only hope is the Black Volume of the Dead, a spell book of terrible power. Everyone wants it. Only the Blackthorns can find it. Spurred on by a dark bargain with the Seelie Queen, Emma; her best friend, Cristina; and Mark and Julian Blackthorn embark on a journey into the Courts of Faerie, where glittering revels hide bloody danger and no promise can be trusted.

As dangers close in, Julian devises a risky new scheme that depends on the cooperation of an unpredictable enemy. But success may come with a price he and Emma cannot even imagine, one that will have repercussions for everyone and everything they hold dear.

Lord of shadows review

I loved this book so much! It is better than the first book which says a lot because that one was amazing! Cassandra Clare's writing is fantastic and I love all of her characters (except some new ones in this book)! Warning the ending for this book is intense and it will be hard to wait 2 years for the next book to come out! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves Cassandra Clare! That ending though.... 😭

Umm... it's Cassandra Clare

Lady Midnight stands as my favourite novel...ever! Read 126 times total this year (I keep a tally chart on the back. There was a vacation. I was only allowed to take one book. Guess what happened...) and I have no doubt it will get a lot of competition from the next two books of the TDA trilogy. I gotta say, there's only one book out and it's already a tough competitor for Percy Jackson (my childhood growing-up window book) and oh my gods Julian my childddddd and Emma ah I love her I'm changing my name to Carstairs because she. Is. Beautiful. Ok, enough of me rambling and checking on my countdown every five minutes (THERE IS STILL 69 DAYS AND FIVE MINUTES ISN'T GONNA CHANGE THAT) if you haven't read TDA, READ IT RIGHT NOW. Kk, bye!
