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.

New Players and New Plots

First I have to say that Morena Baccarin, as much as I love her as an actor, I did not love her narration of this book. It was to mono-toned and she didn't grasp or create different characters for me. She was just the same voice for everyone. That takes away from a book.
So, this book could have been more awesome, with a really good narrator...even two.

With that, this is still a great book, Cassandra still delivers us great Nephalem story lines and new characters. The book introduces several so you know your not going to be stuck on just one plot line here.

What I hate... that I am going to have to wait probably a whole year for the next book. Booo!

If you liked 'The Mortal Instruments'...

...then you'll love this story extension. Very well read by Morena Baccarin. A fun addictive book that had me up late at night unable to turn it off.
