And there's more. Because I am an artist, Emma. These pictures are my heart. And if my heart was a canvas, every square inch of it would be painted over with you. A hero worthy of his Herondale blood. Julian was deprived of his childhood, he became a father and a mother to his youngest siblings, he was forced to grow up, be responsible, put aside his wants and needs and bear the weight of the world in his shoulders. He was the glue that kept his family together. He was a gentle soul but ruthless and cunning at the same time, he had to make terrible choices and hide everything he felt.
His only refugee was Emma. Stubborn, disobedient, arrogant and wild Emma, who at times was blinded by her need for revenge but cared about Julian so much that made you warm inside. The tension, the longing, the understanding between them gave us a love story that can inspire poems because of its beauty and its tragedy. But every character in this book had a different kind of tragedy to deal with.
I was angry at Mark and his ignorance and wrong choices for a long time, but the way he rose to the circumstances won me over. The rest of the Blackthorns were without exceptions amazing characters, and I fought the urge to reach and hug Ty and tell him everything was going to be alright. They deserve alright. Of course there was also humour and sassiness that made me burst into loud laughter, and dear Lord the Clace and Malec and Sizzy feels made me squeal!
Let me tell you this, Jace became a seriously fine adult. I am and always will be a die-hard Wessa fan but I liked the glimpses at Jem and Tessa, even though my heart was crying for Will.
I just miss him so much.
The one who understands your music. Emma Cordelia Carstairs, if you proceed with your appalling plan, no power from Heaven or Hell will be able to save you from my wrath. View all 75 comments. I'm so happy I decided to reread Lady Midnight. I feel it really helped me get a better grasp on the plot and the characters. I feel so much more in love with this story as if I was not the first time.
For example, the inclusion of neurodiverse people in such a conservative society really resonated with me. I was so happy to see these individuals standing tall against the stigma enforced by their superiors. I also believe my "ships" are more set in stone this time, as I was not totally committed to a lot of potential romances before.
The story was just as powerful, the characters just as loveable, and I'm just gushing at this point because I love Lady Midnight so much. I'm so happy to see Cassie Clare growing so successfully, in her writing and creativity most of all.
All opinions are my own. View all 11 comments. IS IT?! IS IT?!?!?!?! How are you guys so sure she's only doing it for the money?
Why do most people do the jobs they do? It's not like she's forcibly coming into our homes and forcing us to download or read her books. And if you guys think it's rude or lame that I'm "targeting" you then it's rude and lame that you're targeting the author, and some of you, even the fandom. If you really feel like "killing yourself" over how much you're tired of this series. Then go do it somewhere else. I've had enough of this BS.
GO ahead and unfriend me block me whatever I don't give a shit. I rest my case. At first, I'm like, What's gonna happen to us when all the shadowhunter themed books are over?
And katniss answered that for me I'm sorry but View all 51 comments. Oct 22, Melanie rated it it was amazing Recommended to Melanie by: Emma Giordano. Holy shit, this book was everything. And honestly this 1. I am so in love, friends. This world just gets more complex, the banter gets funnier, the cast gets more diverse, and the stories get more and more enthralling.
But I went into this brand-new series, that has been building up in the previous series for some time now, never expecting the main story to be about a secret murderous cult. Like, the blessings.
Basically, in Lady Midnight Emma is still unable to let the mysterious deaths of her parents go unsolved, even though everyone else thinks they were just the first casualties of the start of the Dark War. But it has been five years since then, and the Cold Peace is still being held up by the Shadowhunters, making it so no one can help or work with the fae. And we are thrown into a world of ley lines, sacrificial killings, necromancer magic, and a baffling puzzle that Emma and the gang need to figure out quickly.
Lady Midnight is truly a book all about forbidden love. It is filled with angst, heartbreak, and pain. Cassandra Clare is just perfecting her writing, her stories, her characters, her plot twists, and her diversity with every single book. This book honestly blew me away.
Also, yes, you need to read all eleven books leading up to his one, truly. Please use caution reading the rest of this review if you have not read this book and all the series leading up to this book! Spoilers ahead! My favorite main character in… forever. Wow, The blessings.
Too pure for this world and all the Shadowhunters. I will protect him at all costs. And some of his one-liners? God, I was swooning so hard. Also, what a bi icon. My heart. Plus, you all know that fae princes are literally my greatest weakness in this life, so…. Cristina is Latinx and from Mexico and the most precious angel in the world. Gorgeous art by Haunted Duck Princess! Cassie Clare has done such a beautiful job with his character and showing that people on the Autism spectrum just learn and consume information differently; never wrongly.
And again, I think Cassie Clare creating a thirteen-year-old struggling with body image is something I wish I had when I was thirteen. Every book, every series, every new character, Cassie just impresses me more and more. But I am really scared to meet Jaime. Give me everything about this man, because I am highkey ready to call him daddy.
That combination is going to lead to nothing good. I was not prepared. Christopher Herondale. I honestly screamed at this reveal. Also, this really solidifies that you really should read Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy before starting this book. Holy moly, the power this dude had. Also, friendly reminder: Okay, thanks, bye. Apparently the 2 AM "u up? Shit, son. But seeing Jem build a relationship with Emma?
Damn, they grow up fast. Ahhh, the feels. I truly think with my entire body and soul that Cassie Clare wanted to have Tessa, Jem, and Will be in a polyamorous relationship, but it was still not that talked about back when The Internal Devices came out. But, dear reader, I think she is going to right her wrongs and give us the relationship of my dreams. And with two of the partners being fae? Lord, this is my actual dreams.
It was total and it was overwhelming and it could be cruel. The only really negative thing I can say about this book is that I think the laws revolving around parabatai and the age restrictions that make these kids pick lifelong and life-altering relationships is so unbelievable.
But seeing how this bond is going to… maybe ruin them? I always appreciate that the heart of every Shadowhunter novel is about oppression and prejudices that impact everyone; friends, families, entire societies. The Clave is the political force that makes and implements the rules in this world, and much like my own world, many are really harmful, extremely backwards, and very exclusionary.
And I love seeing young people fight back against the generation that wants to keep them in these broken cycles that are filled with hate and fear. Another cool addition that this book gave us was the talk of Scholomance. And no law higher. First off, birth control runes? The sex on the beach. Like, it might be a tiny bit unrealistic sand is not your friend during sex, I promise but like, I had to wait books for Jace to whip out that condom in Hell, but Cassie Clare gives us a hot sex scene in this first book of a series?
The blessings. And Julian was the virgin and not Emma? The gifts keep on coming.
Seriously, you all, I was screaming with joy over everything in chapter eighteen. Also, huge shout out to Solly for sending me the naughty version of the beach scene , because he knows me. Also, a big shout out to Lea for sending me the short story that is only found in first editions of Lady Midnight! And, friends, it was perfection! I experienced pure happiness while reading this book, from the first to last page.

Definitely the strongest first book in any of the series for sure. This book broke me into a million pieces so I honesty don't know how I'm going to I. This book broke me into a million pieces so I honesty don't know how I'm going to survive the rest of the books.
I may reread this immediately because I do want to video review it but also I just need it in my life again.. So many things. View all 3 comments. Nov 13, C. Drews rated it it was amazing Shelves: READ 3 Dec [cue long existential scream of how much I love this book] All I'm saying is that if I had to choose, at knife point, 5 favourite books I am so wholly and absolutely in love with the Blackthorns and my imagination never never stops with the page, or chapter, or even the novel's end.
I just can't let it go. Can't stop thinking about it. This is what I want a book to make me feel?! I can't even. I love it more the second time and it's official: Which is saying something because I love all the Clare books!! My first review still stands true, but here's a smol list of things that really hit me in the reread: Julian, who is an anxious father to his 4 little siblings.
Mark, who's half in love with a fairy boy and half aching for his family. Ty, who is the most precious and relatable character of my life. Ergo I was doomed to love Lady Midnight. It sooooooo didn't disappoint. So basically I'm about to fangirl ridiculously. What isn't perfect about this story?!?! It has everything a Shadowhunter book should have, but this time we're solving a very old murder mystery the murder of Emma's parents. Plus there's cult stuff going down. Plus there's tons of subplots about "forbidden love".
I loved her first book, but omgggg, I adore it even more now. Plus everything was fresh and different and interesting despite being the About 12th Shadowhunter book?? They're parabanti but, hahhahahahhahaha So cue angst and heartbreak. Emma narrates more than Julian, but I did prefer Julian just because he's really not a black-and-white character. Like he's so GOOD but he's also kind of devious. I did love how Emma was sassy but vulnerable.
How many books do this? Julian is only 17 but he has basically raised his 4 younger siblings since he was Julian precious darling child.
Also I never got the siblings mixed up. They have such distinct personalities. AND they weren't just dumped out of the story. I'm so so happy. It's not stereotyped or cliche, there is more to Ty than his Autism, and he is loved and helped despite it.
No one talks about curing him. No one talks about how his life would be better without the autism. Ty is awesome and capable and intelligent. There is so much to love. I just Cristina is from Mexico and she's pretty dang awesome.
Also Malcolm, the resident warlock, continues to be entertaining. And Uncle Arthur was insane. And Church was there. The cat, I mean.
The Dark Artifices
Clary and Jace are mentioned several times and make an appearance at the end. Same with Jem and Tessa. And Magnus and Alec They adopted two little boys! Idek why they're not married though??? I was confused that Julian was wondering why they didn't get married. I mean. Please humour the shippers. So basically it ties everything in and is really sweet. Just sayin'. It would be better if you at least read The Mortal Instruments though. I need the next book asap. I thought I wouldn't have any, despite it being 5-stars!??!?
But I kinda do It just didn't. And it hurt my hands to hold. And it did feel tedious at times because it was sooooo loooong. I was just surprised! I mean, Emma was keeping The Villain talking so help could arrive but stiiiiill. Not a fan. But I was never worried for anyone particularly? This girl was practically vibrating to pieces over the idea of a dead body. Quip fast, die young. He brightened. They're a band.
From Brooklyn. You heard of them? His hands were still fluttering in their repetitive movements. There had been a time when Ty's father had tried to train him to immobility, had held his sons' hands tightly at his sides when he was upset and said, "Still, still ".
It had panicked Ty into throwing up. Julian never did that. He just said everyone got butterflies when they were nervous; some people got them in their stomaches, and Ty showed them in his hands. An actual clue. I think I love you. It's not his fault if he doesn't understand everything. Or if things are too much for him. It's not his fault. Julian had looked at his own inexact, messy work and Ty's methodical rows, and thought: We both see the same world, but in a different way.
Ty feels the same joy I do, the joy of creation. We feel all the same things, only the shape of our feelings are different. Emma giggled. Jule's breath was coming in harsh pants.
Because I'm an artist, Emma. View all 18 comments. Mar 14, Vi Vi added it Shelves: Alternative Titles: The Shadow Hunter Saga: Separation Anxiety. Reading this book will be fun cuz then I get to play 'take a shot whenever this reminds you of something' as far as my alcohol tolerance level will allow.
May 18, alexandra ling rated it it was amazing Shelves: View all 13 comments. Th like, I'm glad I enjoyed this, but wow fuck you guys this broke my heart and the only thing I got out of it was my new favorite tumblr blog So, uh, it turns out I like Cassandra Clare books now, and I think she's just improved significantly at creating lovable characters and narratives I personally find compelling, and I am so glad I have learned to love this.
The difference is that we do not pretend ours are not cruel. Also, can I just say: Also, their relationship is so tense. Like, the mutual pining is too good. I thought the chicken was lovely. I will not be elaborating on which dynamic this echoes at this time.
The dynamic of the siblings with Julian is absolutely the best, and their mutual love and support for each other means so much to me. Basically, I really wish I could continue to be emotional about the Blackthorns forever. I hope I will continue to not die of sadness!! Nov 06, Laura rated it it was ok Shelves: A bad law is no law. This is going to be a mess.
This is the first time I had to call two of my fr "Lex malla, lex nulla. This is the first time I had to call two of my friends to ask them if I was being neutral enough and this is the result. Read at your own risk. Lady Midnight is the first book in what is going to be a trilogy named The Dark Artifices and in this first installment, we deal with the aftermath of the Dark War that, after 5 years, it still has a huge impact in the Shadowhunter world.
I really like this family a lot! I loved how close they are and how they manage all the situations they get themselves involved. And Mark, who I actually got to know a bit in Bitter of Tongue, I grew to like him a lot in this book. She was such a mature character and she gave me and a lot of people new perspectives and while she was a rule follower, she was ready for everything and understood there were things higher than law and I just fell for her so hard.
You have no idea how much I ship them omg. And that was about it. Now comes the part where I rant about everything I actually hated so if you loved the book, you may want to stop reading this now. For 4 years since it was announced this trilogy was coming out and after we all met the characters when they were children, I was sold. You all know these books got centuries worth of baggage and I was going to wait until The Dark Artifices had at least 2 books out, you know?
I had to know what was going to be for them in the future. Enter Lady Midnight and just nah. So color me surprise when it was not Julian who I first read having doubts about it but Emma. In the first fucking chapter. I was like whaaaat??? And from there the romance went downhill for me. It is just that there was not mystery. There was not seduction. CC did not play with the possibilities when we all were expecting being heartbroken and this impossible love for so many reasons and I did not get it.
It was how poorly it was handled. It was because the level of ridiculousness shocked the fuck out of me. Sue me, I like to be seduced but nooo.
Which leads me to the thing I hated the most… Are. I knew, as soon as Julian was hurt and Emma put that iratze on him and shit worked amazingly, something was up. And what was it? Well, apparently when the pair of parabatai fall in love, their runes become even more powerful because….
If you ask me, two parabatai who are siblings, have more chances of being all powerful because a they share blood b they grew up together c parabatai bond. They become all magic powerful and go Hercules on everyone around them. Like, killing everyone and going power crazy. How convenient that was never mentioned. And now Lady Midnight. I just hate how everything was left out, how there was no information about this until now.
Actually, the parabatai part in the Codex was absurdly short and most of it was the vow. Something so important and sacred for this world has so little information. How convenient. Just no. How disrespectful of her. And the way Emma broke things with Julian? Why does she have to involve Mark? Why create unnecessary drama? Someone so in love with someone, so hurt by betrayal and so powerful he managed to kill a lot of people and form a cult for years in order to bring back to life his old love.
I mean, yeah, he turned out hating the kids he saw grow and poor kids, you know? But that was it. I feel like it was such a hollow thing. It was something so bizarre like this kid Christopher Herondale.
Fuck me sideways, I thought Tessa and Jem were looking for powerful artifice but this kid? Is CC trying to win people over? Someone please give me a valid reason why this kid is needed?
Jace may be called Herondale but he was raised Lightwood. What can let Emma and Julian be together? Well, one of them could become a supernatural creature. That way the parabatai bond would break and they could be together. Or they can be exiled and stripped from their Marks and if they survive that, then yeah, cool. Or they could die in the process. He told Cristina where Gwyn is vulnerable.
Kieran told Iarlath about it because thinks the punishment will be Mark forced to return to the Faerie world. But the punishment will be twenty lashes. Kieran begs to take the punishment for Mark. Julian volunteers to take the lashings instead. The Faeries allow it. Emma feels an echo of each lash. After just two, Emma runs in and gives him a deep sleeping rune to render him unconscious. Someone else has to take the whipping now. Both Mark and Emma ask to do it.
Emma is more convincing. The pain is almost unbearable. Emma is unconscious because of sleeping runes and is being treated with healing runes. Cristina is there with her when she wakes up. Emma did it because Mark has been tortured enough and her heart hurt too much when it was happening to Jules.
Julian is devastated. She tells him she did it because it would devastate the kids to see him hurt. He tells her sometimes he wishes they were married and his siblings were their kids. He tells her he loves her. Ty thinks Lady Midnight is a Blackthorn girl who fell in love with a downworlder and was punished by her family by sending her to be an iron sister. Her name was Annabel, like in the poem.
The deadly flowers at the convergence point usually only grow in Cornwall, where Lady Midnight takes place. This poison was on the arrow Diego shot Jules with, which he bought from Johnny Rook. Johnny says he got the poison from a cloaked customer. Emma figures out it was Malcolm. Dru bursts in to ask what they need her for. Malcolm told her she was needed at the house and he would watch Tavvy for her. He has Tavvy to try to complete the spell.
Julian says the will go straight to the Clave no matter the punishment. But all power, landlines, and cell service was knocked out by the flare. Kieran arrives to help them. He says Iarlath is in on this.
Malcolm went to the king of the Unseelie Court to see how to raise the dead. He gave Malcolm the poem. Kieran stands guard outside. Jules puts a rune on Emma. The mark lights up on her skin. They enter the cave and find Tavvy on a table surrounded by a protection circle.
A hooded figure approaches Tavvy. Livvy yells. Malcolm approaches. Emma throws a throwing star at Malcolm. He dodges it and paralyzes her with a spell. The Followers are in pews in the dark space behind him. Malcolm has a candelabra filled with the hands of the murderers the Followers have killed. Malcolm calls for the Followers to rise.
The Shadowhunters fight them. Malcolm resumes his process. It breaks through the spell-protected barriers. Kieran fights Malcolm. Emma uses Cortana to break the chains on Tavvy. Julian grabs him and runs. Everyone else is still fighting. Emma grabs the hands of glory and tells Malcolm to call his cronies off. He does so and runs. Emma chases him to the room with the portal to the ocean. Malcolm says it took him years to decipher the Faerie poem.
He says he felt Annabel move after the first murder this year.
Lady Midnight: The Dark Artifices, Book 1
They fight. Malcolm hurls killing magic at her. The rune from Julian saves her. She stabs Malcolm with Cortana. She throws him against the glass wall and yanks the lever. The ocean reaches out for him and carries him away. Diana offers to take the blame for all of this. Julian refuses. Jules tells Ty he was right…They were all necessary to win tonight, even the younger ones.
Robert quizzes everyone. Robert wants some sort of punishment for them for hiding this from the Clave. Jace tells Mark the N.
Institute will always be willing to help. He gives him his elf bolt necklace. Julian asks Emma to run away with him.
They hear Tavvy crying and go into his room to comfort him. She knows he would spend his life regretting leaving the children. They fall asleep there. The Rook house starts shuddering. Johnny orders Kit downstairs. The spells that protect the house are fading.
Kit messages Emma. Mantids erupt from the living room floor and launch at Johnny. Without knowing how he does it, Kit launches himself back into the living room. Johnny looks sad. The floor collapses. Kit flips himself way from it. His father is ripped apart. Jules wakes Emma by kissing her. They are almost caught by Dru.
It will be hard to hide their relationship. Emma says they need to go somewhere private and talk. She wants to tell him about the dangers Malcolm warned about parabatai falling in love. Julian wants to talk about a plan to keep their relationship going but hidden. Julian leaves to go get lunch for the kids. Emma gets a text from Kit. Cristina and Diego talk of home. She admits she misses it. He notices she still has a gift he made for her.
Mark sees it. Kit is fighting the demons that killed his father. Emma, Jem, and Tessa appear and kill the demons. Tessa introduces herself to Kit and calls him Christopher Herondale, descended from Tobias. Kit rides back with them to the Institute. Emma asks Jem about the dangers of parabatai falling in love. He knows about it because of his time as a Silent Brother. When the parabatai bond becomes romantic love, they begin to wield magic like warlocks.There is also a candelabra that holds severed hands in place of candles.
No, they haven't even thought about this. Emma is bad to the bone. The magic and adventure of the Shadowhunter Chronicles have captured the imaginations of millions of readers across the globe. Could the writing be any more vague. Julian is devastated. She stabs Malcolm in the stomach. Emma Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, one in a long line of Shadowhunters tasked with protecting the world from demons.
