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.

One persons opinion..

I Love James Marsters, he did an amazing job!! It was like having a beloved friend read to me, I love the life he brought to these characters. He was what made this book bearable for me, And that is why I give this audiobook three stars. I have read all of Cassandra Clare books and have enjoyed them all, she's a good writer no doubt about that. HOWEVER, I don't really care for this series. I tried, I actually read book one and thought "it's okay, I'll give book two a try". If I were to have read this book and not listened to it I would have put it down frequently and most likely not pick it back up. It's very wordy, almost to the point of boring and unnecessary. There was very little action and when the book seem to be picking up and gaining momentum it would slow down again. I didn't really like the majority of the storyline, the only storyline I did like was Mark and Chritina's. This Shadowhunter series reads like fan fiction or taking place in a alternate universe. I will not be reading the next book, (might listen to it tho, if James Marsters reads it.) I really can't take much more of these sad characters.

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!
