The Dark Artifices – Lord Of Shadows
Quote: “Why are you on the floor?”
“I’ve heard rolling out of bed in the morning helps you build up resistance to surprise attacks,” Emma said, lying sprawled on the hardwood. “Oh yeah?” He sat up and rubbed his eyes. “What does screaming ‘Holy crap!’ do?”
Blurb: Would you trade your soul mate for your soul?
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 had 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.
Much of the story surprised me, the way the characters interacted and how the relations began to fade and come back together. This book will leave you heartbroken with many feels towards the end but it’ll be worth it. This is a great read and definitely one of my favorites. This series is beautifully written and I cannot wait to read the next! The book 3 will be released in December 2018, Queen of air and darkness so stay tuned and keep your reading lists clear! Be sure to check out the rest of the shadowhunter chronicles as it is so worth it!
