Welcome to Edwardian London, a time of electric lights and long shadows, the celebration of artistic beauty and the wild pursuit of pleasure, with demons waiting in the dark. For years there has been peace in the Shadowhunter world. James and Lucie Herondale, children of the famous Will and Tessa, have grown up in an idyll with their loving friends and family, listening to stories of good defeating evil and love conquering all. But everything changes when the Blackthorn and Carstairs families come to London…and so does a remorseless and inescapable plague.
James Herondale longs for a great love, and thinks he has found it in the beautiful, mysterious Grace Blackthorn. Cordelia Carstairs is desperate to become a hero, save her family from ruin, and keep her secret love for James hidden. When disaster strikes the Shadowhunters, James, Cordelia and their friends are plunged into a wild adventure which will reveal dark and incredible powers, and the true cruel price of being a hero…and falling in love.
What I thought
This book had a lot to live up to. I loved The Infernal Devices series and I enjoyed the first three books of The Mortal Instruments Series. We won’t talk about the last three books in that series. I was so angry that I said I would not read any more of these books. So yes I have missed the whole The Dark Artifices Series and to be honest, I don’t know if I will read those. Well as you can see I caved and picked up this book because I mean Jem, Will, and Tessa. I just loved that throuple so much. Yea I went there.
This book is about Will and Tessa’s kids and I am living for it. This book was everything I wanted from it and more. If you have not read any of the other shadow hunter books I am going to say you can pick this one up and read it. Just know that you will be spoiled for the Infernal Devices series since this happens less than 20 years after those books end.
I am at a loss for words I just want to gush about this book.
If you have even the smallest want to read this book just do it. No really read it. I will be waiting for the next book and I am already trying to figure out how to get an ARC lol.
My Rating: /5
