Sunny Los Angeles can be a dark place indeed in Cassandra Clare's Lord of Shadows, the sequel to the #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Lady Midnight. Lord of Shadows is a Shadowhunters novel.

Emma Carstairs has finally avenged her parents. She thought she'd be at peace. But she is anything but calm. Torn between her desire for her parabatai Julian and her desire to protect him from the brutal consequences of parabatai relationships, she has begun dating his brother, Mark. But Mark has spent the past five years trapped in Faerie; can he ever truly be a Shadowhunter again?

And the faerie courts are not silent. The Unseelie King is tired of the Cold Peace, and will no longer concede to the Shadowhunters' demands. Caught between the demands of faerie and the laws of the Clave, Emma, Julian, and Mark must find a way to come together to defend everything they hold dear-before it's too late.

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

It is hard to describe how amazing this book was, because this one was gorgeous beyond words.
She never seems to disappoint and gets better with every book.

I LOVE the Shadowhunter world, to get back into it and feel like I'm home again.

I LOVED this novel so much, it is just a complete package, a story full with action, intrigue, mystery, love, family and a great plot that keeps surprising me.
It is not just one or two characters you fall for, but an entire book full with great characters that you grow to love. The whole Blackthorn family, Emma, Cristina, Diana, Kieran and other, well-known characters from the previous books find a way to your heart and hold on to it.

And that ending ? Heart-breaking !!!

And now ?? WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR TWO YEARS. TWO YEARS PEOPLE !!!! Wish it was 2019 already..

If it was possible I would give this one 10 stars XD So great !!!
