Cast Long Shadows (Ghosts of the Shadow Market, #2) by Cassandra Clare

Cast Long Shadows (Ghosts of the Shadow Market, #2)

Matthew Fairchild is the Consul’s son and the golden-haired boy of the Nephilim. He has the love of his family and his parabatai James Herondale, and nothing to wish for, except excitement and artistry and beauty that do not seem to fit in with a warrior’s way of life. Matthew gets more than he bargained for at the Shadow Market, where he commits the greatest sin of his life—something he can never tell his parabatai, or any of the honorable...

    7/03/2018Me, trying to remember all the family trees and relationships:Me, when all of these series will finally be over, remembering how I first took "City of Bones" in my hands...9/05/2018Matthew, das gay!!ha, i KNEW i won't be able to remember all Herondale-Lightwood-Fairchild-Carstairs lineage. But I had a feeling this was feelsy, u feel me? Like, if I'd reread Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy I could give this higher rating because I woul...

    3.5 Stars Maybe?"I watched a secret almost destroy a man once, the finest man ever made. Such a secret is like keeping treasure in a tomb. Little by little, poison eats away at the gold. By the time the door is opened, there may be nothing left but dust."I'm not going to lie, this isn't my favourite Cassandra Clare short story, I think especially afterSon of the Dawn was so well done for such a short story. This time around not so much. Everyone ...

    I couldn't help myself and bought the ebook.... And I don't regret it! I just love all of these characters! :) But I have to admit, I was kind of confused at the start about who was who's child and stuff, but I think I got it now XD Now we have to wait for another month... :P

    *Spoilers ahead*4.5*Things I loved:-Matthew Fairchild is the most precious thing-His love for his father is so cute-“Has no kind soul thought to inform you that your hairstyle is, to use the gentlest words available to me, ill-advised? A friend? Your papa? Does nobody care enough to prevent you from making a spectacle of yourself? Or are you simply too busy perpetrating acts of evil upon the innocent to bother about your unfortunate appearance?...

    "Nadie sabía mejor que Jem que alguien podía no ser completamente conocido y aun así ser completamente amado. Perdido en todos sus pecados y querido en la oscuridad. James no permitiría que su parabatai anduviera solo por caminos oscuros."

    5/10/18OKAY. OKAY. SO THIS BOOK BROKE ME. I CRIED SO MUCH! IloveMatthewsomuch.I don't think anyone can understand, but like I don't understand how I can love a character so much after only 2 novellas. I do not condone Matthew's actions in any way, but at the same time I completely understand what he did. I ship him so much with Lucie, there friendship is so sweet and nice AND I REALLY HOPE IT BECOMES A FRIENDS TO LOVERS TROPE!Also the ending Hero...

    Siento como si estuviera super spoileada de The Las Hours y aun no ha salido.SPOILERS -Pensaba caminar contigo, mi parabatai.¿Cuán lejos? pregunto Jem.Will sonrió. -¿Necesitas preguntar? Iré contigo lo más lejos posible. No me esperaba este dolor, me esperaba el llegar a sufrir por Jem, Will o Tessa, pero jamas me imagine el estar sufriendo por Matthew Fairchild.Es horrible ver como se deja llevar por las mentiras de Alastair, y llega a des...

    Cast Long Shadows is ten times better than Son of the Dawn holy crap I am crying. This particular novella informs us that Jem is looking for something that has some connection to Tessa and it also sheds light on Matthew Fairchild as a 15-year-old, very dramatic in character with a wholesome love for his father: a key theme explored in this short story.From this novella we can perhaps infer that what happened to Charlotte, the secret Matthew ho...
  • Maria
    4.5.*Spoilers for TID*OMG, it was so sad. My heart broke for Poor Matthew, Charlotte and Henry.But to read about Will and Jem... together... again... was amazing. I can't wait for the TLH!
  • Iris
    SO GOOD!!! These novellas are all INCREDIBLY PAINFUL, and I love it, and AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!I fell in love with Matthew. He was such a lovely character, and I loved seeing how he went from this sweet innocent child to someone who was so hurt (I know, I'm mean.) (Honestly that just sounds super wrong, and not really like what I'm even trying to say, but... You probably know what I mean...).He was wonderful, and I hope we get to see more of him in futu...

    I was NOT expecting that to be Matthew's sin. How to unread something? Put it back I don't want it. I will protect this boy with my life. And I'm slightly more excited for TLH but not that much. Maybe the next novella will also help with that. I do admit some of the characters I had no idea who they were because I don't know much about the TLH crew, especially the non-mains.
  • Ana
    All those TID feels rushing back! Oh, my heart… “How far? asked Jem.Will smiled. ‘Need you ask? I will go with you as far as I possibly may.’”Matthew Fairchild, with his cheerful, dramatic personality, was a great introduction to The Last Hours. The friendship between James and Matthew is just too precious. However, the entire incident with Henry and Charlotte… my heart broke for them, especially for Charlotte… And for Matthew, too,...
  • Nadine
    Pretty boring. Maybe I would have liked it more if I could have remembered who most of the characters were. These short stories are usually hit or miss and this one was definitely a miss, so I think I’ll just wait until the print version is published.
  • hamna
    my heart is shattered what the FUCK cassie
  • Anna
    My heart...I'm really glad we got this insight on Matthew and his mind because I wasn't quite sure what he's going to be like except for the information we already got from Cassie.This story did many things with my heart. I wanted to hug Matthew, I wanted to hug James, I wanted to slap Alastair (and sometimes Charles), Christopher seems like a fun guy and I am not sure how I feel about Thomas yet.The scene with Henry and Matthew after Charlotte w...
  • Cat
    This ebook is going to pull at your heartstrings and make you want to read The Last Hours right now!I love Matthew so much and my heart broke for him. His greatest sin is horrific and I feel so sad for him (and certain other characters). It looks like Cassie and Sarah are going to make me cry each time I read a new installment.

    Will and Jem😭😭😭😭
  • fairylightsandbooks ( Aino )
    This novella was so much fun! I love seeing the fairchilds of the past and obviously my faves the Herondales. Mathew must be protected!!! All of these characters mean so much to me I cant explain it!It was cassie clare obviously I loved it and I cant wait for the next one its going to be painful
  • Stanislav Lozanov
    Definitely better than the first story!
  • The Story Girl
    Old sins cast long shadows. Before I begin, a couple of notes: this is the second story in The Ghosts of the Shadow Market anthology, and it takes place in 1901. This whole book should be read after The Infernal Devices because there will be major spoilers for one of the characters in that series at least. Also, this book is about Matthew Fairchild, Charlotte Branwell’s son (from The Infernal Devices). He has her last (maiden) name of Fairchild...
  • Masha
    I absolutely loved this story. I adore Matthew so much, and in some ways he reminds me a lot of both Will and Jace. The interaction between all of the characters is amazing, and I just loved seeing Henry and Charlotte again, how (view spoiler)[ he crawled toward Charlotte when she passed out, it was so beautiful, because Cassandra is always making us doubt how much the two really love each other, and than moments like this make me realise tha...

    Matthew 😭😍

    Poor Matthew....
  • Aisha Ditta
    I love this new series, we get to know so much more about the characters. This one followed Mathew, some unexpected things happen for a novella, it was a lot more intriguing than I would have thought. I also love the friendship between James and Mathew. We now have to wait 2 months for the next one. 😩
  • V (lady⚔️crow)
    I was anticipating this story because it featured my ray of sunshine, Matthew Fairchild. BUt I did NOT sign up to see him hurt. You know, when Cassandra Clare said that The Last Hours would be sadder and more tragic than The Infernal Devices, and I didn’t believe that because, come on, nothing can be more anything than TID. But I do now. I really, really do believe that.

    Nel 1901 a Londra, sotto le arcate del ponte ferroviario vicino alla chiesa di St Savior, si teneva il Mercato delle Ombre nello stesso posto in cui di giorno si teneva il mercato dei mondani.Una sera, il Fratello Silente più simpatico di tutti, Fratello Zaccaria alias Jemmino nostro, a passeggio tra le bancarelle incontra un ragazzino quindicenne che ben conosce e che gli si appiccica stile francobollo sulla busta, Matthew Fairchild, figlio di ...

    I really love Matthew Fairchild. He has a very flamboyant and Magnus-esque kind of charisma, and such a buoyant personality that's it's difficult not to instantly fall in love with him. I was a particular fan of his deliberately long-winded and archaic turn of phrase, which made me grin and laugh out loud on more than one occasion. He's fab, and I think -- his narrative voice was intriguingly light-hearted whereas I think James perceives him as h...
  • Sophie Riggsby / allthingsequilateral
    *Review posted on Mundie Moms in May 2018*You guys, you guys, you guys, this anthology should be called Jem Wanders through the Shadow Market and Sophie Dies of Happy. I am absolutely loving these short stories. In this one, we're introduced to some of the children of Infernal Devices, and my heart melted a thousand times over. Seeing this next generation face new struggles as Shadowhunters is so interesting. Making it all the more fun is seeing ...
  • Ludodreamer
    Novella stupenda! Mi è piaciuto scoprire qualcosa in più su Matthew Fairchild. So già che amerò The Last Hours, perché solo con un racconto breve mi sono affezionata ai personaggi, ho riso insieme a loro e sono rimasta sconvolta alla fine. Inutile dire che sì, credo di sapere quali saranno i miei preferiti e vedo delle ship pronte a salpare.E' sempre meraviglioso ritrovare i nostri amati personaggi di The Infernal Devices, come Henry, Charl...
