Heroes aren‘t always the ones who win. They‘re the ones who lose, sometimes. But they keep fighting, they keep coming back. They don‘t give up. That‘s what makes them heroes.

I have read The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices and must say The Dark Artifices is my favorite of the Shadowhunter series. Everyone seems to show up in the story at one point or another and the characters are more endearing, equally sassy, funny and interesting. Even her new characters are more three dimensional.

I enjoyed hearing the audio version of this while reading along with my own physical book. It made it easier to get through the fight scenes since I have such a hard time picturing those and loved the narrator and his different voices for all. I did find some of this book dull but still love Cassandra Clare and can't wait to pick up the last book in this series and see how it ends!

Bella looks a little unsure, but I‘m ready to dive in to this one. I had a full day PD today, along with grades and evaluation evidence due, so I only had time to sneak in 50 pages at lunch. Finally sitting down to read - and looking forward to April break next week to finish the series!!

Just like with Clockwork Princess, I don‘t really want to read this 😂 but simultaneously once I start I know I won‘t be able to read it fast enough. And again, I know the eventual ending for the main characters...but I don‘t want to deal with all of the emotions and stress in between 😬

bewareofwords I read the first book ages ago, but I have yet to read the next two books... It might be time for me to catch up. 🧐 I‘m such a huge fan of Clare, but waiting for the inevitable happy ending is so painful in all of her series! 7mo

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! There were many segments that i felt were drawn out but overall there were many twists and turns and an ending that truly wrecked me! She took a direction on many of the plots that I never expected. Already have the next book and can‘t wait to read it!

Just started this book today. I really love Cassandra Clare's books. What are your guys opinion on it? I just got back into reading again after a few years. Do you guys have any suggestions? I am more into books like The Dark Artifices series.

TheBookAddict Hi. I haven‘t read this book nor any books by this author. I don‘t know if you‘ve read anything by Leigh Bardugo, but her Six Of Crows series was good. You may want to start with her Grisha trilogy though. It‘s more of a YA fantasy series. The Hell Divers series is also good, but it‘s a post apocalyptic series. 10mo

TheBookAddict Nice, let me know what you think when you get to them. I read Six of Crows first and then realized that I should‘ve probably started with the Grisha trilogy. You can still follow the story if you start with Six of Crows though. I don‘t think I‘ve read any other YA fantasy recently, but if I think of something I‘ll make sure to let you know. 🙂 10mo

I am glad that this generation has writers who use their talent to show right from wrong. Cassandra Clare you hit it out of the park. Proud to be a fan. No one should be forced to a registration just because they are different than white, middle income Protestant even if you are rogue fairies. And I loved how Kit thought it sounded too much like history. Predators should still be registered. #learnempathythroughhistory

Daaaaamn that ending tho!! Ok so I‘m definitely going to have to pick up Queen of Air and Darkness very soon. Definitely agree with the majority that this series is the author‘s strongest work, and I really like the direction she‘s taking everything thus far. There was a little too much time spent on characters I‘m not as invested in, but overall this was super fun and wild, and like I said, THAT ENDING. Great way to finish my reading year! 4/5 ⭐️

Whoo. I spent almost 8 hours today finishing up this audiobook! Even with listening to it at 2.75 speed, it took me a while to get through! Rereading it, I still enjoyed it just as much as the first time, maybe more as I was trying to figure out foreshadowing for both the ending and the 3rd book(which I'm hoping to make my 1st read of 2019!). I'm not sure I'll get any more reading done tonight because of the emotional toll!

When a decision like that is made by a government, it emboldens those who are already prejudiced to speak their deepest thoughts of hate. They assume they are simply brave enough to say what everyone really thinks.

Last book of the year! This thing weighs like 12 pounds. But like most people, I thought the first book in this series was some of her best writing yet, so I‘m excited to get into the sequel. The final book just came out, too, so I gotta catch up (though I probably won‘t read that one for a little while). #nowreading

Intended just to skim this before Queen of Air & Darkness comes out on Dec 4. I realized I didn't remember much other than ending 😭.Story just sucked me back in, so did a complete reread. Then I saw from other Litsy reviews what was on inside of book jacket. I still think Clary inventing a birth control rune is coolest thing ever. Especially since she only is able to invent new runes as needed. 😉

Hello everyone, Yes I am back after some very hard weeks of reading Lord of shadows now this book was amazing in every way, we are talking writing style, characters, setting, and plot, BUT THE ENDING I WAS TORTURED I WAS SOBBING LIKE CRAZY. I have never cried this much on a book before this book was amazing!

Book_heaven_24 It follows Emma, now defeated Malcolm Fade has to deal with another problem falling for the person she can never be with Julian Blackthorn her parabatai, Emma has to hide this from everyone for it is known that falling in love with a parabatai is strictly banned by the clave for there are secrets to it. I give this book a 5/5 ⭐️ I Loved it! #Booklover #bookworm #review #bookobsessed #lordofshadows #bookaholic (edited) 14mo
