Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

IMG_0612

I just finished this book a few hours ago, it was crazy and absolutely epic with a shocking ending that will leave you reeling.

What I love about this series is the Blackthorn family, they are so close-knit, accepting and trust each other tremendously. After the events of the prior book, Lady Midnight, is that it brings them even closer together.

Emma is great main character, she’s strong, reckless at time and brave. I love the dynamic that she and Julian have, not just as parabatai, but the blossoming feelings they have towards each other. The banter between Julian and Emma made me laugh out loud at moments, and Mark’s dialogue was great as well. Mark and Ty are by far my favourite of the bunch. I am definitely rooting for Cristina and Mark to be a couple.

Lord of Shadows is not only great as a fantasy, though it is set within the Shadowhunter world, it was able to tackle LGBT and transgender issues. We also get appearances from Magnus, Alec, & more. If you loved any of Cassandra Clare’s other works, or are just interested in seeing cross-overs of prior characters. I definitely recommend giving this series a go.

I can’t wait for the next instalment, and am hoping it will be just as action packed.
