Cassia No. this is a stand alone. Basically 'bonus information' lol,
You should actually probably read The Dark Artifices first
Maria There's actually 10 of them, 2 of which weren't released before the bind-up because they spoil the ending of The Dark Artifices

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 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

''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 sarcastically*

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!

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

Overall rounded up to 5 stars, it wasn’t going to be anything else really. I’m glad to have finally finished this up.

Forever Fallen: 5/5 stars

~ 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 don’t know how I’ll ever be ready for The Wicked Powers, but I’m not sure how

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 J

After this story (which took me two hours to get through) I was pretty convinced, I had encountered a book that I'd hate. Or at least not care about. I couldn't see a point to the story, it felt to me like there was nothing happening. I bet there must have been but all I could see was the list of who's related to whom it wha

“I said that to somebody once,” said Jem. “A long time ago. He did train with me. And now I’ll train you.”
Kit hesitated, then said, “Will?” and Jem nodded. “Do you . . .” Kit bit his lip. “Do you still think about him a lot?”
“I loved him better than I love myself,” said Jem. “I still do. I think about him every day.”

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.
