Publisher's Summary

Sunny Los Angeles can be a dark place indeed in Cassandra Clare's Lord of Shadows, the sequel to the 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.

    "beautifully performed"

    James Marsters is sublime. He gave each character an unique voice and I am at a loss to say any more! Bravo!

    Story
    "Another masterpiece - You won't be disappointed!"

    Clare's Shadowhunters world is exquisite. The author isn't afraid to take risks with her characters and it's refreshing to have real world problems in a fantasy novel. The narration made the story come alive. Without giving spoilers the cliffhanger left me jaw-dropped and crying but hungry for more. I can't wait for the next in the series!

    "Terrible Ending"

    This could have been such a great story, but the ending feels so incomplete. Yes this is a series, but even a series book should have an ending. The story travels all over the place in a disjointed way and then never really provides an end. A last word is not the same as an ending. Sad.

    "Amazing continuation of an amazing book series"

    I have yet to find a book series that sends me on such an emotional roller coaster as this one does. Brilliantly thought out to the finest detail. I don't know how I can possibly wait for the next book in the series to come out!

    "Blows the other stories away "

    The story of Emma and Julian and their families make Clary and Jace seem like tween stories. This story is heartbreaking and phenomenal.

    Story
    "James Marsters is Amazing"
    What made the experience of listening to Lord of Shadows the most enjoyable?

    Equal parts the narrator and the story. This may be my favorite book of all of the Shadowhunters books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I feel like I really got to know the characters at the L.A. Institute. New information about the Parabatai bond was also very interesting (and scary).


    Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm a big fan of the Harry Dresden series and was worried that I would keep hearing Harry when I listened to this book. Not so. James Marsters is incredibly talented and he brought every one of these characters to life. I knew who was speaking at all times. Probably my favorite Audible performer.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The last chapter. Wow! I hope there's a way that some of what happened can be undone.I actually cried


    Any additional comments?

    Buy this audio book. You won't regret it.

    "Keeps you wanting more, every single time..."

    This book was another great adventure in the Cassandra Clare series. I am a HUGE fan of all the mortal Instruments books and I cant help but be ensnared into another great series thats a continuation of the last 2 sets shes has written. This book keeps you wanting to continue listening/reading even though it might not be possible. I cant wait for the next one to cone out already!!!

    Story
    "I can't get enough of Cassandra Clare!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and James Marsters! He can make the Wall Street Journal sound interesting. I love all of Cassandra Clare's books and this is no different. She continues to amaze me with new characters and situations that are intertwined with her previous series but with an all new twist. I can't wait for the next book, this one left me with a shock and I need the story to continue now!

    "LOVE IT!!!!!!"

    I love this series. I listened to Lady Midnight several times waiting for Lord of Shadows to come out. I really enjoyed all the sub plots/story lines through out the book. I felt the time between the change from one plot to the next was perfect. I tend to be ADD so like the change up. The narrator was amazing and did a fantastic job with all the different character voices. Great character development. I love they way she sets it up to where she can take any of the story lines and develop a series that will spin off from this book.
    The end was so very sad and broke my heart. Hanging till the next one.

    Story
    "The weakest Shadowhunter novel thus far"

    The narrator was the only thing that pushed me to finish this book. While I've enjoyed most of the Shadowhunter books, this one felt like a chore. The plot felt repetitive and boring and I'm finding myself losing interest in the characters. There aren't any real shocking moments until the very end. The worst part is the whiny monologue which pops up constantly throughout the story. And it's frustrating that there's one simple thing that the main character could do to resolve her main issue, yet she doesn't do this simple thing and no explanation is ever offered for why she can't seem to bring herself to do this. Sorry to be vague, trying to keep this spoiler free for anyone who wants to waste their time on this book.
