Cass No. this is a stand alone. Basically 'bonus information' lol,
You should actually probably read The Dark Artifices first
i-am-a-book-fangirl I think it means the edition available as a physical book instead of an ebook or an audiobook.

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.

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.

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

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

Este es un libro de relatos que se centra en Jem y que nos lleva en un viaje a través de las décadas, las diferentes familias de Cazadores de Sombras y Subterráneos que ha conocido y, sobre todo, la enorme lealtad y amo que siente por Tessa y por Will. Sí, hay unos relatos que son mejores que otros, pero créanme que todos y cada uno de ellos valen la pena si sabes apreciar cada

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

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
Έχοντας διαβάσει και τα άλλα δύο βιβλία με short stories (The Bane Chronicles και Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy) πιστεύω πως αυτό εδώ ήταν το καλύτερο! Κάποιες από αυτές τις είχα ήδη διαβάσει όταν είχαν πρωτοκυκλοφορήσει σε ηλεκτρονική μορφή αλλά τις ξαναδιάβασα γιατί συνειδητοποίησα ότι δεν θυμόμουν τίποτα!

Και κάποιες από τις σκέψεις μου:

Cast Long Shadows

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 what

El simple hecho de que este libro sea narrado por Jem Carstairs hace que me encante. Las historias me gustaron mucho y me parecieron bastante interesantes, las fui siguiendo mes a mes desde 2018 y me prepararon para poder leer QOAAD con muchas teorías (en su mayoría se cumplieron, por cierto) y también dan una introducción a los personajes que veremos en TLH.

Las historias están narradas desde dos perspectivas; la de Jem (o el Hermano Zachariah) y la de algún otro personaje (en esto varía

We get more information about how this new bond between Livvy and Ty works. We get a lot of information, actually, and I’m really excited about it.

We also get to see Tessa, Jem and Kit. I’m SO HERE for a family-kind-of relationship between Kit and Jem and Tessa. And for Kit being a big brother for Mena. I just can’t wait. Jem and Tessa are going to give him all the love he needs and deserves and I’m gonna die of tenderness in the process.

Since I'm a big fan of Jem this, my opinion might be biased, in this book you'll find ten short stories about Jem or father Zachariah and his adventures in the shadow market on his quest to find the lost Herondale, and the introduction of new characters.
There's love, some action and questions about some characters destination, can't wait to read more about Ty, Kit, Jem, and the little ones.

Голяма грешка!
