  • Emma Giordano
    I'm so happy to be back in the world of new Shadowhunter content! Son of the Dawn was a great first installment to what will surely be a fantastic novella series.(As a note, this novella includes spoilers for The Infernal Devices series)Being honest, I do tend to struggle more with Cassandra Clare's novellas than her full novels (I just feel 500-700 pages does her writing more justice than being restricted to short stories) so this is definitely ...

    “Every world contains other worlds within it.” It is official, The New York City Shadow Market is the coolest one we’ve seen so far? Abandoned theater? Ahhh, the aesthetics. But this story takes place in 2000, and I will be honest with you all, I sure in the hell wasn’t expecting a story about how Jace came to join the Lightwood family. Damn, my emotions are all over the place, because seeing Raphael alone makes me weep. Also, I think it...

    5 STARS!Life is not a boat, bearing us far away on a cruel, relentless tide from all we love. You are not lost on me on some forever distant shore. Life is a wheel.She's done it again. My heart is ripped into teeny tiny shreds and spat out with a big gaping hople in the shape of Will Herondale. For anyone that knows me, knows that The Infernal Devices is my favourite ever series, and will leave me in tears no matter what. So whenever I get the sm...

    Jem hoped he would find happiness.Jem smiled back at a boy long gone. Sometimes, Will, he said. You seem very close wow okay this gave me the FEELS. I just .. I am trash. I am a massive trashcan who would die for the Shadowhunter-verse and all these characters. Like, they're all my kids and I LOVE THEM. This is the story of Jace coming to the Institute for the first time, told from Jem Carstairs point of view. Everything about it was so sweet, Al...

    Son of the Dawn by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan is the first novella in the young adult paranormal fantasy Ghosts of the Shadow Market series. This series is another companion set of novellas that are brief glimpses into events set in the Shadowhunter world of the Mortal Instruments series.This first installment takes place in the year 2000 as Raphael Santiago meets up with Brother Zachariah to warn of news going around the Shadow Marke...

    “No, said Jem, because he was always James Carstairs when he spoke of what was dearest to him. Not mine. My parabatai’s” ^This was Jem’s response when a-very-tiny-Jace inquired about the initials W and H which were carved in to a staff he uses to fight with. I... AM... EMOTIONAL.This short story was truly such a gift. It brought back all the memories and feelings from TMI/TID, and I could not ask for anything better than that. There was ...

    oh maaaaan this makes me want to read The Mortal Instruments books all over again!
  • ☽ TheBibliotheque
    Do I live for any glimpse I can get from characters I will always hold close to my heart? Yes.Was this novella completely unnecessary and irrelevant? ABSOLUTELY.Listen, I want to cry at the mere mention of Jem and Will... In the same way that I will always love tortured Jace. So I will jump at the idea of reading more about them. What I don't get is where is this coming from, Cassandra. This was so completely and utterly unimportant, I can't real...

    if you listen closely you can hear me not giving a fuck about any cassandra clare character that isn't magnus bane or the blackthornsladies.........i regret to inform you that i don't think i can get behind anything cc writes that isn't the dark artifices. i just don't have the energy to care about a million different characters and events and dkjhdfkfhj i'm literally only here for some Soft Blackthorn Family Bonding that's the type of shit that ...
  • Romie
    I loved every second of it! I listened to it as an audio book and the narrator did such a great job!I was expecting this story to be narrated from Jem's perspective, it absolutely broke my heart every single time he mentioned Will or Tessa. My poor Heronstairs heart wasn't ready at all.Also getting more Rafael was a dream coming to life, and I nearly cried at the mall while listening to it. My sweet vampire deserved so much better, I'm still bitt...
  • Noura Khalid (theperksofbeingnoura)
    “He remembered traveling across the sea, having lost his family, not knowing that he was going to his best friend.” I can’t explain to you how much sadness I felt while reading this novella. I think I could hear my heart splintering on multiple occasions. We got to see the first time Jace came to the New York institute to live with the Lightwoods. I loved seeing a glimpse of younger Jace, Alec and Isabelle. I loved how comfortable they came...

    THE FIRST PART OF THE GHOSTS OF THE SHADOW MARKET YAYYYY!I flew through this one really quickly and it was really beautiful. Especially the parts about choosing your parabatai and such. If y'all haven't read the mortal instruments or the infernal devices or the dark artifices yet I highly suggest you go read it because they're amazingggggg!

    Actual rate: 3.5. I love "Brother Zacharide-him-like-a-bad-pony" and I’m excited about these short stories.
  • fairylightsandbooks ( Aino )
    Its Cassie Clare obviously I loved it? Jem isn't my fave shadowhunter character ever but I ended up caring for him more at the end of the novella! Raphael is still one of the most underrated characters in the series so I always want more of him. He's just hilarious and I love my ace vampire so much!!! Seeing Alec and Issabelle younger when Jace comes into their family was the most cutest thing ever I won't get over it.The last scene where Jace go...

    This was such a great novella! I had a great easy time with it and getting to know the lightwood and Jace's history better was really nice.
  • Suzanne
    Love love love reading about when Jace met Alec and Isabelle. The shadowhunters are hands down my favorite series and characters so I am eating up these short stories. This one featured Raphael & Jem so that was an awesome added bonus! My quick and simple overall: short but fun short stories!
