Pre-Order Lady Midnight

The first of The Dark Artifices books finally has a release date! On March 8, 2016, Lady Midnight will be released. This is the trilogy starring Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn, taking place in present-day Los Angeles. You can pre-order your book here so that you get it as soon as it comes out. Here’s Cassandra Clare’s preview of the upcoming book:

Emma swallowed. She was remembering Julian, two years ago, standing in the overlapping circles of fire where the parabatai ritual was performed. The look on his face as they each stepped into the central circle and the fire rose up around them, and he unbuttoned his shirt to let her touch the stele to his skin and carve the rune that would bind them together for their whole lives. She knew if she just reached out now, she could touch it, touch the rune cut into his shoulder, the rune she had put there . . .

Los Angeles. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to to discovering exactly what it was that killed her parents and getting her revenge.

Tiny Malec Snippet

I just have a tiny, tiny snippet from Lady Midnight centering Malec love.

Magnus grinned at her, sideways. “Anyway. It was no big deal for me to stop by here on my way to Buenos Aires.”

“What’s in Buenos Aires?” said Julian.

“Alec,” Magnus said.


Added Shadowhunters Character

They added a character to the show named Lydia Branwell for the purpose of involving more of Idris to the scene. Ed Decter, one of the producers of the show, says, “we had to sort of bring Idris to the Institute!
