Series: The Dark Artifices #3
Author: Cassandra Clare
What if damnation is the price of true love?
Innocent blood has been spilled on the steps of the Council Hall, the sacred stronghold of the Shadowhunters. In the wake of the tragic death of Livia Blackthorn, the Clave teeters on the brink of civil war. One fragment of the Blackthorn family flees to Los Angeles, seeking to discover the source of the disease that is destroying the race of warlocks. Meanwhile, Julian and Emma take desperate measures to put their forbidden love aside and undertake a perilous mission to Faerie to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead. What they find in the Courts is a secret that may tear the Shadow World asunder and open a dark path into a future they could never have imagined. Caught in a race against time, Emma and Julian must save the world of Shadowhunters before the deadly power of the parabatai curse destroys them and everyone they love.
‘Some lights were never meant to burn for long.’
That line gutted me. I’m still absolutely gutted.
We have a family in total grief. And grief makes you do things you would never normally do.
Julian and Emma find themselves changed and have a trip to Fairie, the world we know and somewhere else. (Yes, I’m being cryptic!!)
Kit and Ty find themselves in a very weird situation of their own making and maybe find a bit more of themselves.
But I was totally here for Mark, Keiran and Cristina. 100% here for them! I love them more than Emma and Julian who really, I was a bit meh about!!!!
And of course, there’s a battle of good and evil but who will triumph and what will be lost?
Well of course you’ll need to read to find out but I can tell you this story was long one, it was a great read and I was hooked.
All the old faves are here (would’ve been perfect of Will had popped up!!!) and after that ending I can’t wait to see what comes next!
