Reviews Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices, #2)

  • Emma Giordano
    I said it before and I will say it again, The Dark Artifices is Cassandra Clare's most sophisticated work yet.(Heads up: my Goodreads review is spoiler free but hopefully later this week I'll be posting my spoiler-filled and probably way too long video review to my YouTube channel: youtube.com/emmmabooks) Lord of Shadows is the sequel we've all been waiting for. It has the same amount of high-intensity, beautifully constructed, and deep, yet c...

    Don't talk to me for like a week. In other news, I broke my promise again of not reading the book the day it comes out and in one sitting.------------------Why I always do this to myself?I always read the book the day they come out and in one sitting and I don't think about the consequences like how I have to wait another whole f*cking year again.This book is going to make me suffer. I know it. Like Clockwork Prince.I think I better wait until th...

    I can't remember the last time a book made my heart feel this empty and this full at the same time. Man, what a magnificent installment. The story here is so epic and sprawling, and the way it's told--especially the pacing, how the different story threads were woven together--it was just perfect. Not to mention that I love these characters so much it makes my heart ache. Waiting for the next book is already causing me pain and we've still got TWO...

    My reaction after finishing Lady Midnight My reaction after finishing Lord of ShadowsI've had it with love triangles! I'm usually up for them as long as my ship prevails in the end ;) but man did Cassie complicate things for every possible pairing in this book. Emma/Julian/Mark - I thought this triangle wasn't so bad after I was done with Lady Midnight cause I knew Emma and Julian couldn't be romantically involved but Cassie effed things up with ...

    These books seriously just keep getting better and better. The writing has improved SO much and the characters here are my absolute favorites. And... I cannot believe I'm saying this, but I actually liked Jace and Clary.But just like with Lady Midnight, I was more into the actual characters than whatever the larger plot arc was. I guess I don't care that much about Malcom, Annabel, the book, the Shadow Lord, or most of that drama. Pretty sure any...

    yes, five months later my official review is here. Ive finished screaming. I'm ready to talk Continue on for 25% memes, 50% why I love this book, 25% more screaming(there may be mild spoilers untagged like new character names but everything major will be tagged) “Everyone is afraid of something. We fear things because we value them. We fear losing people because we love them. We fear dying because we value being alive. Don't wish you didn't fea...

    “Break my heart. Break it in pieces. I give you permission.” I don't recall giving my permission though. I don't recall allowing Cassandra Clare to wreck havoc on my soul and stomp on its pieces before scattering them to the wind. But she did it anyway. “A dark time is coming for Shadowhunters. A terrible time. Their power will be crushed, their might thrown down into the dirt, and their blood will run like water through the riverbeds of...
