WOW (3): Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Waiting On Wednesday (WOW) is a weekly event or bookish meme, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that readers and bloggers are eagerly anticipating and patiently waiting for.

This week's WOW book is... Lady Midnight. I have seen this book being featured on a lot of blogs lately, and I am so jealous of the people who received their ARCs weeks (even months) before the release of the book. I know. I know. It's been receiving a lot of hype, and it's likely that a lot of people will not read Cassandra Clare's new book because they think she's just milking out her Shadowhunters stories for cash. But to be honest, I don't really care if it's for money or whatever. As long as it's a good book, I'll read it. And I saw Alexandra from Goodreads post a review that fueled my excitement for the release of Lady Midnight.
"Saying LADY MIDNIGHT is an emotional roller coaster ride is an understatement. I'm shell-shocked by Cassandra Clare's improvement in writing, world building, character development, EVERYTHING."

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices #1)
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Expected Publication: March 8, 2016


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.
