The Shadow Market is a meeting point for faeries, werewolves, warlocks and vampires. There the Downworlders buy and sell magical objects, make dark bargains, and whisper secrets they do not want the Nephilim to know. Through two centuries, however, there has been a frequent visitor to the Shadow Market from the City of Bones, the very heart of the Shadowhunters. As a Silen ...more

I received a copy of this book from Simon & Schuster. I had no obligation to read or review this book and all opinions are my own.
ARC provided by Simon & Schuster in exchange for an honest review.

Ghost of the Shadow Market is truly my favorite anthology set in the Shadowhunter universe, so far. Each story is so different, so unique, and really transcends all time periods, all generations, and all of my expectations. I loved this, friends.

And this bind-up is all about Brother Zachariah, former Silent brother, and all the different shadow markets through the ages and through our world. And, again, you get to see glimpses of

Marking this as one book even though I read the stories individually as ebooks. But OMG. THIS WAS SO MUCH BETTER THAN I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE.

I’m SO glad I took someone’s advice and read this before QOAAD because i definitely would’ve been spoiled for something BIG if I went back and read this later. And also now I know the backstory.

It's always a satisfying pleasure to be back in my favourite shadowhunter world. I just adore it all so much, ok? I'm in deep. I love that we get backstory (shh I don't care if it's needless) and extra time with favourite characters. I love the indulgence of seeing characters grow up over the course of all the series and get married and have kids. Like, ok sometimes it's totally sappy. But I don't CARE. I am a soft leaf of grass these days. Let me be happy with my kids.

This is a collection of 10

''We will kill all the demins.'' : Shadowhunter Chronicles, a summary.

Cast Of Long Shadows: uugghhh rude.
Every Exquisite Thing: Anna marry me. I will protect you (ง'̀-'́)ง. Also women in suits 💕💕
Learn About Loss: -5/5 apparently it wasn’t about Catarina Loss and I’m mad about it. Cassie I thought we were bffs. Can’t believe you tricked me… haven’t read it yet tho…
A Deeper Love: I think I read this but I can’t remember.
The Wicked Ones: F.U.N.- Spongebob Squarepants *said sarcastical

I'm not a fan of novellas because I don't feel that they add much to the original series they accompany, but this novella bind up was fantastic. It introduced issues that the characters from Chain of Gold will face, it provided more moments between Tessa and Jem throughout the decades of their relationship, and it introduced Tessa and Jem's daughter to us as well. While I did skip a few of the stories simply because I'm not interested in certain characters, the majority of the stories were fanta ...more

» Since this is an anthology, I will write individual reviews of each novella right after I finished it. Then, I’ll give you my overall opinions! I’m so excited to read this. Btw, ratings may change over time because I’m definitely gonna compare the novellas with each other after I read them.
» I actually planned on reading this this weekend when I’m going on vacation to the BEACH!! But the cover and illustrations are just so tempting.

4 stars

Short disclaimer before I start (only for those considering buying the UK edition of the hardback for this book):
DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT buy the UK edition hardback. The hardback does not have the book and a dust jacket on top like usual hardbacks, but apparently has the cover printed on the book, plastified of a sort….so I wouldn’t recommend, unless of course you don

Herondales were always flames, he thought. They loved and suffered as if they would burn away with the sheer force of their own fire.

This novella was very good and I was so happy to read more about my darling Kit Herondale. I'm so grateful he found a place where he is finally loved and cherished. When I read about him with baby Mina in his arms, I lost it. My heart cannot take this level of cuteness!
The Janus's storyline isn't my favourite and I'm sure we're going to have to deal

4.5 stars, though I’m a bit tempted to round up because TALK ABOUT GIVING ME THE FEELS. I did a lot of giggling, but also a lot of crying reading these stories. And I am both impressed and terrified at the set-ups for the the upcoming books!

Ghosts Of The Shadow Market

I loved this book so much❤️ I really missed reading something by this author, it reminds me of when I first checked out her books last summer.
I can’t begin to explain how much I love this world and the characters in it! I’m excited to read Chain Of Gold soon, but I’m currently mentally preparing myself (if you know you know). I loved reading more about Jem although he is not my fav, but he’s still amazing!

Cassandra Clare, you fucking tease. “Wicked Powers” would be the last two words of this book.

“When you fight, you should fight with your whole heart.”

I don't tend to love Cassandra Clare's short story collections as much as her full books. Something about them just doesn't hit the same. But I think of all the short story collections she has put out, this one is by far the best. I found myself quite sucked into a few of these stories, maybe just because they follow Jem and I love him. But especially the ones toward the end, I really loved. I wish there had been one with Emma and Jem
