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.

An okay beginning

Something has changed in the writing style of these books. There's a repetition in the wording that becomes distracting.

Story is okay. Doesn't have the depth of development you see in the City books, but a good read.

So when you're Cassandra Clare and have such amazing original books like the Mortal Instruments series- everything is going to be compared to that. It's inevitable. I'm not going to act like this book is bad- it's not. I really like the characters. I like the kids and Mark... Not a big Emma fan. She's alright but her character is boring. There isn't a whole lot to her. The romance happened very quickly, I don't find Jules attractive. While his parenting and sacrifice is completely admirable there really isn't anything else about him I find enticing.

I honesty liked the book best when they talked about Ty and Liv and when people like Magnus, Jace, Clary, Tessa and Jen came into the picture.

It was just alright. I don't like comparing it to the other books but what else am I supposed to do? It's well written and has its funny moments but it didn't suck me in like the other shadow hunter books.... & I've read them all multiple times. I don't think I'd ever want to read this one again.
