Cassia No. this is a stand alone. Basically 'bonus information' lol,
You should actually probably read The Dark Artifices first
Rowena Shacklebolt yes actually the series is left on a cliff hanger and these parts fill in the blank space(no jamming to the song) in the story

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 glimpse

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.

But like JEM. AND TESSA. AND JEM. AND TESSA. My heart is HAPPY

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…

Through Blood, Through Fire: 4/5 stars.

~ This was altogether a beautiful story, as all stories about Jem and Tessa are. It also wrapped up quite a bit of info about Kit, which I always am interested in. I’m altogether as excited for QoAaD as I could possibly be. I look forward to this compilation’s official release so I can finish up those final two stories still on their way.

“Every world contains worlds within it. People wander through all the worlds they can find, searching for their homes.”


1. Son of the Dawn — 5/5 stars.

“Despair was never stronger than the thought of them. He could not betray them by giving up. They are Will and Tessa, and you were Ke Jian Ming. You were Jem.”


This wasn't a full book, so no full review, but I will say this: Son of the Dawn was absolutely wonderful. We got to see Jace, Izzy, and Alec when they were little, and how Jace came

I have waited so long for my Jessa family endgame and I finally got it. 5/5, my heart is whole. Full review to come when I'm more coherent and not continuously rereading the last two stories.

*** This review will have spoilers for all the stories that this bind-up contains and it has potential spoilers for basically all shadowhunter books (aka my faves) ***

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 (4/5). Technically it's a 3.75-star rating but I think it deserves the 4 full stars.

From the moment this anthology/novella bind up was announced I knew I had and wanted to read it asap. And so I did (well I technically listened to them). This was my first time listening to a shadowhunter book in audiobook form and I

Jem and the Shadow Market are the threads connecting all the stories. Though, sometimes loosely related to the main story, Jem is featured prominently. I’m usually not a fan of Clare’s collaborative work, but Ghosts of the Shadow Market is her best anthology yet! Almost all the stories offer something to the world and expand on characters who are offstage in the main books.
Below, you’ll find quick reviews of all the stories in the anthology with a star rating.

Average Rating : ⭐⭐⭐⭐.1

I have been waiting to read this book because Jem will always remain one of my favorite characters in this universe and I was so excited to read a book that followed his journey through the years. His devotion for Tessa and Will is a constant across all these stories and it made me tear up a lot of times. We also get introduced to characters who are going to be the MCs in The Last Hours as well as get some idea about where The Wicked Powers might lead us to, and I think i

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 collection of shadowhunter names and how all the characters are connected.

I think as soon as I've finished Queen of Air and Darkness I will have to completely reread all of the books just to finally understand all the little easter eggs

OKAY HOLD UP AN ANTHOLOGY OF JEM FRICKING CARSTAIRS WHAT IN RAZIEL'S HELL IS HAPPENING GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I CAN'T EVEN I CAN'T WAIT
The Story Girl
"Ghosts of Old Loves" will be the 9th story in the anthology, and "Forever Fallen" will be the 10th and final short story in this collection. It will be partially told from Jace's point of view, and "You'll be surprised..." (x)

It’s partly from Jem’s point of view, and partly from Jace’s. We will see a good bit of Kit. We will see an entirely new place, which will crop up again in The Last Hours. And… since the story is set after Queen of Air and Darkness, anything else I have to say would be a g
