Publisher's Summary

The Shadowhunters of Los Angeles star in the first novel in Cassandra Clare's newest series, The Dark Artifices, a sequel to the internationally best-selling 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.

    Story
    "An everyday tale of shadow folk"
    Would you try another book written by Cassandra Clare or narrated by Morena Baccarin?

    I have enjoyed the other books in this series but this one is lacking a plot. If you listened to this one first it would put you off the others.<br/>There really is no excitement.


    Has Lady Midnight: A Shadowhunter Novel put you off other books in this genre?

    No but would be cautious.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    What story!


    Did Lady Midnight: A Shadowhunter Novel inspire you to do anything?

    "great spin of. loved this book as much with better narrated"

    If you loved shadow hunters then you will love this spin off with a few cameo appearances of a few from the first set of books (even though I was confused with Max being seen though the portal) the audio read by Morena Baccarin was way better then the mixed up bunch that read immortal instrument series.hope they keep the same one as she was good.

    "Not as good as the previous series"

    Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series were both excellent. I didn't find this first installment of The Dark Artifices nearly as captivating. I don't really like Emma as a character and I didn't find any of the others engaging enough to compensate for that loss. Plus, the plot was too predictable for me. It is still worth listening to, but I doubt I would have continued with the series if I didn't have Clare's other works to build up my faith that the story will get better.

    "Incredible"

    Loved the story line. As good as the first story of Immortal Instruments. Did not stop listening until I finished it all.

    "So disappointed!"

    I love Cassandra Clare books but this one I can't even finish! The narrator bored me to tears, I couldn't distinguish between the characters because her tone was just monotonous and her reading of the narrative was too fast- it felt like she was rushing through it. Got to chapter 3 or 4? Can't even tell you the names of the characters, nothing seems to happen- where's the interesting opening? Where's the hint of a plot? There's no action so far. Perhaps it gets better further in but I'm afraid I won't be continuing with this audio.

    "What a book!!!"

    I have liked all of cassandraclares book and i still do there is nothing i dont like about this book.
    I recomend this book to every one and the disabillity world citizens.
    I chose this rateing because every step of the story opens up a new fasanation and the way the story links in to the other seasons is amazying.

    "Readers warning......"

    I do get a little annoyed about Audible not making it clear that books are aimed at children and young adults.
    This is chick lit written for a teenage girls wtitten by a 16 year old, or at least it reads like a book written by a 16 year old.
    I enjoy fantasy but am finding it increasingly diffocult to find books written for a mature, over 18, audience. This is a typical example - trite, precocious and 'I'm really cool' characters, complrx but boring plots. The writing...... The Gruffalo is by comparison is high literature.
