The Wicked Ones (Ghosts of the Shadow Market, #6)

Celine Montclaire goes to the Shadow Market to escape. She would go anywhere in Paris, or the entire world, to escape the suffering she experiences at the hands of her family. She did not expect to meet Valentine Morgenstern there, or to have him promise her freedom and the heart of the man she secretly loves. On one condition, of course. At the Shadow Market, nothing is for free.

    This has just become my new favorite Shadowhunter short story. THE FEELS. THE REVELATIONS. 😭😭

    F yeah, we will finally have a decent Jace's mom backstory!Not that I'm desperately trying to remember the facts we already know about that group of friends! I have everything under control! *nervous laughter*

    2.5 starsIn this novella we learn more about Céline’s life. I was never really interested in her story and this novella was no exception. Now we know how Céline and Stephen came to be but I could have done without this bit of information to be honest. The thing I always like about the novellas of the series is Jem. I love seeing what he's up to. This time he made a very interesting discovery that I did not expect. I read online that this disc...

    Questa novella mi è sicuramente piaciuta molto di più rispetto alle ultime due!Di solito adoro sempre le novelle incentrate sul Circolo, e questa non è stata da meno. Infatti, l'ho apprezzata proprio perché si concentra sulla mamma di Jace, figura che rimane abbastanza marginale nei romanzi, in cui viene narrata solo l'ultima parte della sua storia. Invece, è stato interessante capire come sia arrivata a quel punto. Devo ammettere che, oltre...

    Such a lovely little book. It was really interesting to learn about Jace’s parents. Especially since Stephen was married. It’s also nice to learn more about valentine as a young adult. And of course anything with Jem and Tessa I love

    5 stars. “I sometimes think there is nothing more painful than love denied. To love someone you cannot have, to stand beside your heart’s desire and be unable to take them in your arms. A love that cannot be requited. I can think of nothing more painful than that.”The Wicked Ones follows Celine Montclaire, who goes to the Shadow Market to escape. Celine would go anywhere in the world to escape the suffering she experiences at the hands of h...

    I have a feeling I say this every time, I know, I’m sorry. I just can’t help myself—I feel like this novella is the best one in this ‘series’ so far!We met two of the very interesting female characters who each made a huge impact on the whole Shadowhunter chronicles—Jace’s mother and Kit’s mother.Céline was one of those characters that I had kind of passively hated, mostly because the only other way we’ve been told about her wa...

    How far will you be willing to go in order to have the love of your life even when that sentiment is unrequited??? Well this book is about Celine Montclaire and her unrequited love for Stephen Herondale, about the decisions she has to make in order to have him even at the highest price.... I really enjoyed this companion novella set in the Shadowhunters World.
  • J Quant
    "Feeling is what makes us human. Even the most difficult feelings. Perhaps especially those. Love, loss, longing-this is what it means to be truly alive." This was so good. I've always been really curious and interested in Céline Montclaire's life, and so when I heard that there was gonna be a short story focus on her, well, I was just over the moon.I've always thought of her as someone rather... idiotic maybe, but this proves me, oh so wrong...
  • Jelena Milenković
    Five stars for Jem and Tessa and the Herondale(s)butTwo stars for everything else, sadly.Céline let her pain and her insecurities dictate her instead of owning them, and that was her biggest mistake. I felt sorry for her, yes, but what she did at the end was not okay, was in fact unforgivable. She’s not that much better than Valentine, despite everything.Good thing Jace didn’t grow up with them. Neither of them.Though he did went through a s...
  • Salvatore
    ★★ 1/2Racconto molto interessante, devo direViene approfondita la storia di Celine, la madre di Jace...Una storia tragica e decisamente poco a lieto fine... cosa onestamente non tipica di Cassandra Clare che quasi sempre fa finire il tutto in tarallucci e vino (e ammmore)Anche la perdita costante dell'umanità di Jem mi è piaciuta abbastanzaNon mi è piaciuto al solito la continua presenza e menzione degli Herondale, di cui l'autrice non rie...
  • Camilla (thecrazyreader)
    Questa novella mi è piaciuta più della precedente, piena di nuove rivelazioni che rimettono tutto quello che sai in dubbio.Leggere la storia di Celine, la mamma di Jace, è stato anche triste, perché di sicuro si meritava di meglio.
  • Isla
    It took me quite a while to get through this novella because I kept on rereading passages almost as soon as I finished reading them. I didn't want to let them go. They were far too beautiful to only be appreciated once. I love Jem more than my heart can bear, 5 stars.(As a side note, it's almost scary how masterfully Valentine manipulates the people around him. It takes me back to reading those first few books - wondering how gullible people coul...
  • Ashlee » Library In The Country
    This was so enjoyable and really spread some light on certain aspects of the Shadowhunter world.
  • Boo
    Maybe my favourite of the stories in 5he collection so far.
  • Aseel
    3.5I dunno, this was kind of good but also pretty bad... I really don’t see the point of all of these novellas tbh
  • emma
    Every time Will is mentioned it makes me want to cry, I hate thinking about the three of them separated.
  • Shelby
    The ending of this one omg. It was so interesting to see the time period with the circle and finally learn more about Celine.
  • kim hannah
    ⭐⭐⭐ ┊ 2.5 starsHovering between a 2.5 and a 3. I sometimes think there is nothing more painful than love denied. To love someone you cannot have, to stand beside your heart's desire and be unable to take them in your arms. A love that cannot be requited. I can think of nothing more painful than that. I wasn't a big fan of this novella. Was never really interested in Celine in the first place. I mean, I'm sympathetic towards her back story...
  • Swetlana
    I want to give this more stars because I really like the Brother Zacharia storyline that is happening here but the whole Celine and Stephen thing just feels off and wrong. That's not something I'm here for, to be honest. Like, using magic potions to have someone fall in love with you and then going even further and having someone give you someone? Yeah, no thanks.I'm also kind of conflicted because I can kind of see why Celine would fall into all...
  • Vita Giannoccaro
    Novella molto interessante.Sapere quanta sofferenza abbia dovuto sopportare Céline nella sua vita è stato terribile, e credo di aver compreso anche la sua scelta finale, nonostante già sappiamo come sia poi finita la sua storia. Anche Rosemary mi è piaciuta molto e non mi sarei mai aspettata la piega che hanno preso le cose. La sua storia mi incuriosisce davvero tantissimo e non vedo l'ora di saperne di più nei prossimi volumi.Per quanto rig...
  • teagan
    it was so heartbreaking reading about Celine, I wanted to give her the biggest hug and knowing what happens to her in the end....can’t stop crying. Also seeing jem doing everything he can to save the lost herondale that was (big gasp) a girl this time, he would rlly do anything to save them bc of his ties to Will and bc he’s the type to save people, it made me so happy and sad. Also getting Tessa’s pov again: amazing. the POWER that this st...

A love that cannot be requited. I can think of nothing more painful than that.”We finally got some info on Jace’s parents! Yay! I love seeing the circle’s inner workings and man have I missed Valentine. Though I still preferred the scene with only Jessa because o...
  • Alli
    This was SO GOOD! So good I’m still shaking. It felt so real, so human. Celine’s pain, I did not expected something like this or that this would be her story. I am so shocked and so in love with her character now. Wow, just wow. Cassie, with Robin Wasserman’s help, truly outdid herself.
  • giulia
    3.5/4 stars. it was heartbreaking reading céline's story :(
  • Angela Magic Art
    This was soooo good!!!
  • **Sognatrice di libri**
    Una lettura un pò lenta, qui Jem praticamente è inesistente cosa che mi ha lasciato un pò l'amaro in bocca.
