Review: LADY MIDNIGHT by Cassandra Clare
By: Deyshareé López
Lady Midnight is the first book in the new trilogy by Cassandra Clare, which follows the story of Emma Carstairs and the Blackthorn family, whom are all first introduced in Clare’s City of Heavenly Fire, the last book of The Mortal Instruments series.
Now, five years later in Los Angeles, California, we embark on a new adventure that is sure to leave you dumbfounded and amaz
ed. As the story unravels with its intricate storyline, character development, and major plot twists; you’ll be begging for book two.
As a follower of the Shadowhunter Chronicles, Lady Midnight was a very long awaited book, especially after learning that we would be getting a deeper look into the world of Faeries, which have always been a very important species within the Downworlders.
This book met my high expectations and went beyond. Getting a jumpstart on a new Shadowhunter’s story, and discovering new characters was very exciting. Yet, it was scary at the same time; since I already have so much love for the original characters in both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series.
Get past that little fear, and indulge yourself.
Beautiful, awesome, adventurous, violent, romantic, gruesome, and many time hilarious; this books is simply fantastic!
Those of you, who have already experienced a Cassandra Clare book, know that she is the queen of plot twists. She will tear your heart into a million pieces, fill you with anxiety, expectation and dread. You don’t know how things will turn out— and that’s part of the charm.
As for those that have never read a Shadowhunters’ novel before, I recommend that you get into it as soon as you can; you don’t want to miss out on such a great world!
Lady Midnight includes a thorough recap of events in the past books. The recap is very important to this current storyline, as some of the characters from The Dark Artifices and The Mortal Instruments series are part of the new storyline, as well as details of previous events.
I recommend this book to those who are fans of great adventure, supernatural creatures, romance, and amazing story and character development. If you’ve read the LUX series by Jennifer L. Armentraut, The Precious Stones (Ruby Red) trilogy by Kerstin Gier and Anthea Bell or Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, you’ll fall in love with Lady Midnight and the Shadowhunter Chronicles.
