Los Angeles. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to to discovering exactly what it was that killed her parents and getting her revenge.

Raised in the Los Angeles Institute with the Blackthorn family, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian Blackthorn. A series of murders in the city catch her attention — they seem to have the same characteristics as the deaths of her parents. Could the murderer be the same person? And her attention isn’t the only one caught: someone has been murdering Downworlders as well. The Fair Folk make a deal with the Institute: if the Blackthorns and Emma will investigate the killings, they’ll return Mark Blackthorn to his home. The catch: they have only two weeks to find the killers. Otherwise it’s open war between faeries and Nephilim.

The Shadowhunters of the Institute must race against time to catch the killers, even as they begin to suspect the involvement of those closest to them. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with the one person in the world she’s absolutely forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.

We have a while until this comes out, but I'm extremely excited for it. Whats your Waiting On Wednesday this week? 


  1. UGH I'M DYING TO READ THIS. I got so emotional when the release date kept getting pushed back :( But I finished reading The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices a year ago, so the wait hasn't been *too* long. Can't wait though, great pick!!

  2. I am so excited for this one! I am super annoyed that they keep pushing it back but oh gosh 786 pages I AM READY.

  3. I HAD NO IDEA CASSANDRA CLARE WAS WRITING A NEW SERIES! (I must have been hiding under a rock or something, but oh well, better to know now than never). Thanks for sharing this and fabulous choice! ♥
