Publisher's Summary

Sunny Los Angeles can be a dark place indeed in Cassandra Clare's Lord of Shadows, the sequel to the number-one New York Times and USA Today best-selling 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.

    "Much better"

    OMG sooo much better. James Master's performance of this was far better than Morena Baccarin's Lady Midnight. Made the ok writing far more enjoyable.

    "Well, what an ending!"

    Enjoyed the book for the most part.
    There was the odd bits that were hard to follow as it jumped about a bit.

    Still can't wait for the next one, to see what happens to everyone else

    But not overly impressed with the narrator. no one seemed to have their own voice, which made it difficult to keep up with who was who at times.

    I do wish a good narrator could be used for the whole series of books.

    love the book and the progression of the characters, but I'm truly disappointed by the ending as it doesn't make sense to me.

    "Good book but a little over-progressive."
    Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I like James Masters and really enjoyed his narration of the Dresden books although there were a few slight mispronunciations. The other slight problem I have is that,, considering he played an English Vampire for years on Buffy, he had a terrible English accent for the parts of the book set in the UK.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Better than the Mortal Instruments.


    Any additional comments?

    What a great story. A riveting listen from start to finish and every second enjoyable. Each character has something to offer and is progressed well. The story is intriguing and full of twists, and the narration is highly engaging. <br/><br/> If I were to make a little complaint it would be that the writing seems to be too progressive in the sense that it seems to make a big deal about not making a big deal about homosexuality. There seem to be more homosexual characters than I would consider realistic in a general cross section of society. So many in fact that it surprises me that Shadow Hunters haven't died out through lack of procreation. Don't get me wrong I am all for inclusion but I just think that the author is trying a little too hard.<br/><br/>Aside from this, this is another great book and I can't wait for more.

    "Fun and enjoyable fantasy"

    Fast paced enjoyable story as always from Cassandra Clare. Was very disappointed in James Marsters' performance though - had been looking forward to it, but his different accents were intrusive, and his pronounciation of the Welsh words in the text laughable. (Eg Gwyn ap Nudd as 'ap Nude'.) In an age when you can type 'how to pronounce X in Welsh' into google and get multiple audio clips this is pretty unforgiveable.

    "Heartbreaking but amazing!"

    I absolutely love this series. The characters are all so strong, and the stories are so unique.

    I found the ending to this one to be a total shock and deeply heartbreaking. Still I loved every minute! I can't wait for the next.
