Goodreads
Dark secrets and forbidden love threaten the very survival of the Shadowhunters in Cassandra Clare’s Queen of Air and Darkness, the final novel in the #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling The Dark Artifices trilogy.

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 blight 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.
I am so entrenched in the Shadow world, I will always want to read a Shadowhunters' book. But my need for this book goes deeper. First of all, it's the last book in this series, and I am hoping that some of the chaos that has defined this series gets resolved in some awesome way in the final book. Seriously, something big and painful happened in the previous book, and I have be dying to know how Clare was going to make it worth the pain.


What are you waiting on?

  1. Do you watch the show? Y BFF does and loves it, and talks about the books sometimes, but I've never quite got into either. It sounds very cool though and I hope the pay off is worth it!

  6. I feel so left out of the Shadowhunters world because I tried to get into the first Mortal Instruments book a long time ago and it just wasn't for me. This cover is so gorgeous!

  7. I have the first book in this series on my bookshelf. I am so excited about this series, but I just can't commit to the amount of time it will take to read these humungous books. I hope that you enjoy this instalment. :)

  10. I haven't read Cassandra Clare in years, but if this series is only three books, I might pick it up!

    1. TDA and TID are both only 3 books. Not sure how TMI became 6, but I was pleased with the ending she gave that series, and that those characters continue to pop up in TDA.

  11. I have only read one of this author's books. I really need to give her another try. I hope you love this one, Sam!

    1. I know some people are not big fans, but I will say, that her writing gets better and better with each book. The TDI books are amongst my favorites, so if you like paranormal with a steampunk touch, you might want to try those books.

  12. I think the TV networks always jump the gun in cancelling shows too early. It's got to the stage where I don't watch any US produced show that interests me until it has completed at least two seasons! Too many get cancelled just as they are hitting their stride!

    1. I really don't adopt too many new shows, especially serials, because they get canceled right when they start getting really good.

  13. I still need to read the first book!
