There the Downworlders buy and sell magical objects, make dark bargains, and whisper secrets they do not want the Nephilim to know.

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

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.

Im SO glad I took someones advice and read this before QOAAD because i definitely wouldve 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.

I quite enjoyed the last 2 stories of this collection, Kit was becoming one of my favourite characters in The Dark Artifices series and having a story with him, Jem, and Tessa made my heart melt.

Average rating: 3.8
Rating may change once the final 2 stories are released.

I loved some of these and yet absolutely hated others. Like with the Tales From the Shadowhunter Academy there were some stories which contained very little plot and were instead just a

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

~ This was an incredibly emotional experience. Cassie Clare is fantastic at making me so, so happy and soft one moment, and then absolutely devastated the next. Jem, Tessa, Kit, and the baby are the most adorable family, but Ash and Janus are the most tragic one. I dont know how Ill ever be ready for The Wicked Powers, but Im not sure how Ill
