The Dark Artifices
It’s been over a week since the release of the latest Shadowhunters novel, Lady Midnight. It was an absolutely delightful return to the Shadow World, and I couldn’t have asked for better protagonists. Both Emma and Julian have grown so much and have such incredible journeys.
Apart from their own tales, Emma Carstairs also let us know more about two favorites – Jace Herondale and Clary Fairchild – and all the others since she’s been in touch with the New York Institute all these years. No doubt, there’s more to come.
Now that the spoiler-week is over, I have updated the bio, quotes and history sections for Jace and Clary all of which are located here. In the gone 5 years, Clary seems to have taken up the name Fairchild, just as Jace did with Herondale in CoHF. If you guys want to see more stuff added, let me know!
Today, we return to the Shadow World again, Shadowhunters! Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn are taking us back in Lady Midnight, the first book of The Dark Artifices trilogy. BUT, there’s a lot to look forward to for Clace fans as well, so keep an eye out!
If you haven’t already raced to your local bookstore, you can order the book via the following links:
The site will remain spoiler-free for a WEEK – including Quotes and Bio sections for both Jace and Clary.
Happy reading and we’d love to hear what you thought of the book!

Simon & Schuster’s online community, PulseIt, is getting a makeover. Now publisher neutral, the community is renamed Riveted and will launch officially in February – a very ABC Family to Freeform move.
One of the first campaigns Riveted is undertaking is the binge reading of The Mortal Instruments, right before the release of Lady Midnight, which fans can join in with the hashtag #TMIBingeRead.
Each week, starting January 22 through March 18, Riveted will be reading one book in the series. There will be trivia, giveaways and discussions on the Riveted YouTube channel.
In addition to the Binge-Read, there’s also #FlashbackFridays, where the history and tid-bits from the saga will be posted.
All in all, you get to read our favorite books along with fellow fans, and win some cool giveaways. So be sure to check out the official Binge-Read page and join in!
Entertainment Weekly has released the covers for the next two stories from ‘Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy’ e-series. The first Bitter Tongue, releases August 18 and the second, The Fiery Trial, on September 18.
When an Academy mission goes wrong, Simon is kidnapped by faeries (why is he always kidnapped?). He must escape the Fey, relying on his only ally, former Shadowhunter and Dark Artifices character Mark Blackthorn. – EW
Simon and Clary witness the parabatai ceremony of Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn…and discuss their own parabatai plans in this precursor to The Dark Artifices. – EW
I’m especially excited for The Fiery Trial, since it leads us directly into The Dark Artifices.
