MY MOST EXPECTED BOOK OF MARCH
I needed to collect my thoughts before I write this review. This was such a amazing book not only because the writer is amazing in what she does, but because SHADOWHUNTERS WORLD brings so many good memories of my begginings as a reader.

Emma Carstairs is a warrior, a Shadowhunter, and the best in her generation. She lives for battle. Shoulder to shoulder with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, she patrols the streets of Los Angeles, where vampires party on the Sunset Strip, and faeries—the most powerful of supernatural creatures—teeter on the edge of open war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries turn up murdered in the same way Emma’s parents were when she was a child, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma’s chance for revenge—and Julian’s chance to get back his brother Mark, who is being held prisoner by the faerie Courts. All Emma, Mark, and Julian have to do is solve the murders within two weeks…and before the murderer targets them.
Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. And each clue she unravels uncovers more secrets. What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter Law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents—and can she bear to know the truth?
The darkly magical world of Shadowhunters has captured the imaginations of millions of readers across the globe. Join the adventure in Lady Midnight, the long-awaited first volume of a new trilogy from Cassandra Clare.
Will Keep You on Your Toes
“There is a reason you can’t fall in love with your parabatai, Emma. And when you find out what it is, you will feel the cruelty of the Shadowhunters, just as I have.”
After the War five years ago. (The Mortal Instruments). Emma has been training to become the best shadowhunter. Her desire to be the best is strongly linked to her need to find the murder of her parents.
She and her parabatai, Jules, follow every clue they find.
Recently, fairies have been murdered and her corpses were marked with the same marks Emma saw in her mom and dad. It seems that finally Emma has a legit clue but since the War is against the law to help any fairy.
That’s the reason why Jules half brothers were banished to the artic(Helena) and never rescued (Mark).
Trying to find who have killed those fairies might be the only way to find who was the real murder of her parents but Emma might not like what trues she found on this journey.
Cassie’s fans have been craving from this book from the moment she announced it, two years ago. I was one of them.
We all know that the main plot in this series is how Emma and Jules will fight against what they feel for each other.
“What would you have done differently?”
“I don’t know if I would wanted a parabatai.”
“Do you actually mean that? You wouldn’t have wanted it? This, with me.”
If you haven’t read any shadowhunter’s book don’t worry, you won’t have to if you want to read LADY MIDNIGHT. You won’t understand all the jokes but you won’t feel lost in the story.
Now, what I loved most of this book.
She remembered Emma saying in passing that Ty go upset whe his routine was interrupted.
Over the years, Julian had come to understand why Ty didn’t like looking into other people’s eyes.
Ty said nothing. His hands were still fluttering in their repetitive movements.
We both see the same world, but in a different way. Ty feel the same joy I do, the joy of creation. We feel all the same things, only the shapes of our feelings are differents.
I fell in love with all the Blackthorns but specially with Tiberius.
I like how Cassandra introduces a memorable and special character. Because think about it, how high are the probabilities that with seven Blackthorns one of the is autistic?
If you are nostalgic because the other series have ended, don’t be. Cassie knows what her readers love and she give us a glimpse of each one of them.
Over the years she’d added several useful runes to the Gray Book – one for breathing underwater, another for running long distances, and a rather controversial one for birth control that had nevertheless quickly become the most often used rune in the lexico.
Clary is nuts.
This book will keep you on your toes. With amazing main characters, funny and excited moments with a little for everyone’s taste.
