Publisher's summary

The Lightwoods, the Shadowhunters who run the New York Institute, are expecting a new addition to their family: the orphaned son of their father’s friend, Jace Wayland. Alec and Isabelle aren’t too sure they want a new brother, and their parents are not assuaging their fears, too occupied with the dark news that Raphael Santiago, second-in-command of the New York vampire clan, has brought from the Shadow Market.

Cassandra Clare did it again!! I'm hooked...

This is a great story told from Jem's perspective, which is something I have been hoping for since I first read the Clockwork Angel. Inspired!

Great

This world of shadow hunters is my favorite to escape to. Although the stories have humor and adventure and love the dispair and sadness always hits me the hardest.

love the City of Bones series but this is lacking

I'm a huge Cassandra Clare fan and live her City of Bones series, have read and loved all of her books so was glad to find these short stories, but this was disappointing, not at all the quality of writing I am accustomed to from Cassandra Clare.

I wish it were longer

...and I thought I cried like a baby when Will passed away in A Clockwork Princess. Jem’s reflection on Will in this book almost killed me. I love reading about Jem. I didn’t think that was enough of him in the The Mortal Instruments. What a treat to have a novella specifically on him and somewhat on the younger Jace. I just wished that there were more about Jace and the Lightwoods when Jace came to live at the New York Institute. A bit of foreshadowing on much younger Clary would be nice, as well.

Will and Jen

Thanks Cassie for keeping Will present with Jem in this book. And Jace, Alec, and Izzy are too cute.

Loved the story

I loved the story but I wished that it was longer. I love these characters and I would love to have heard more about their story during this time period.

I love this author and new series!

I loved the Clockwork Angel Series and so I quite enjoy this new series which fleshes out other characters that perhaps were not the main characters of the original story. I also loved the Mortal Instruments Series so I am happy how this series also connects to that story and those characters as well. This was a very good read (listen) even if it was only slightly over an hour.

Great Narration

I chose this book because I love the shadow hunter series and Reilly Dolman. He adds so much heart to his voice and makes you feel for the characters. This is a good intro to the series.

Son of the Dawn

I love it! Reilly Dolman as narrator is excellent. His voice is calm and full of passion. I could listen to him all the time ;)
