“He remembered traveling across the sea, having lost his family, not knowing that he was going to his best friend.”



I can’t explain to you how much sadness I felt while reading this novella. I think I could hear my heart splintering on multiple occasions. We got to see the first time Jace came to the New York institute to live with the Lightwoods. I loved seeing a glimpse of younger Jace, Alec and Isabelle. I loved how comfortable they came to being with each other.


“Jonathan Wayland shrugged. “I applied to the Iron Sisters, but they sent me a hurtful and sexist refusal.”


We also got to see our dear Jem Carstairs! Along with Rapahel Santiago and Lily Chen. Two of my favorite Vampires. It has been quite some time since I last read about these two and it felt very nostalgic. Coming back to the story and the characters always feels like coming home. I’ve been a part of the Shadowhunter fandom for the past 6 years now, and Cassandra Clare’s books always seem like comfort reads for me.

"Jem hoped he would find happiness.
Jem smiled back at a boy long gone.
Sometimes, Will, he said. You seem very close."


I loved reading from Jem’s point of view. He’ll always have a special place in my heart. I’m so excited to read the rest of the stories in the Ghosts of Shadow Market Anthology.

The letters were W and H.”
