Fans have waited for this book since City of Heavenly Fire was released back in 2014 and we got a preview of the new generation of Shadowhunters at the end. If Lady Midnight is any indication, this Dark Artifices Series is not going to disappoint!
Admittedly, I was a bigger fan of The Infernal Devices than I was of The Mortal Instruments, and my opinion is that this series is more in the style of the former. While you don’t need to read any of the previous series to enjoy the book (I haven’t even read any of the Shadowhunter Academy or Bane Chronicles), it does help to build the backstory, and all of our old favorite characters make appearances, so we get a peek into where they are and what they’re doing.
This new series is going to provide enough twists, turns, and mysteries to stand on it’s own and I, for one, cannot wait to read the rest! There is so much I need to know, like right now. If I keep talking about it I’ll spill too many book secrets, so if you want to read a more in depth, spoiler-free review, go and visit fellow WP blogger driftinglexi here. Then after you read, we can talk about all the spoilers and theories! 🙂
