Cassandra Clare’s most anticipated book – Lord of Shadows – is the second book of The Dark Artifices trilogy. Continuing the thrilling and mysterious story of Emma Carstairs, the shadow hunter, and her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare is a 720-page novel full of intensity and adventure. The release date of Lord of Shadows is 23 May 2017.
Just like the previous book, the story of Lord od Shadows is set in Los Angeles but in the dark world. Emma Carstairs has found the reason of her parent’s death and takes the revenge finally. But this is not where it’s all good for Emma; there is much more to come. After avenging her parents, Emma’s life throws in something more complex.
Emma’s desire for Julian, her parbatai, is increasing beyond the limits. As the law of shadow hunters prevails that parabatai cannot fall in love, she doesn’t want Julian to suffer the consequences of having a relationship with her. To avoid everything, she starts to date Mark, Julian’s brother who was in faerie prison. To believe Mark completely as a Shadowhunter may become a mistake because things aren’t the same after his return from the prison.
The plot of Lord of Shadows takes a turn when The Unseelie King decides to decline The Cold Peace and not going to grant any of the demands of Shadowhunters. Cassandra Clare has written another masterpiece in form of this book. Lord of Shadows is all about how Emma, Julian and Mark come together to fight the unforeseen before it’s too late to save everything they love.
