Publisher's Summary

The first in a brand new Shadowhunters trilogy set in Edwardian London by internationally best-selling author Cassandra Clare.

For years there has been peace in the Shadowhunter world. James and Lucie Herondale, children of the famous Will and Tessa, have grown up in an idyll with their loving friends and family, listening to stories of good defeating evil and love conquering all. But everything changes when the Blackthorn and Carstairs families come to London...and so does a remorseless and inescapable plague. James Herondale longs for a great love, and thinks he has found it in the beautiful, mysterious Grace Blackthorn. Cordelia Carstairs is desperate to become a hero, save her family from ruin and keep her secret love for James hidden. When disaster strikes the Shadowhunters, James, Cordelia and their friends are plunged into a wild adventure which will reveal dark and incredible powers, and the true cruel price of being a hero...and falling in love.

Welcome to Edwardian London, a time of electric lights and long shadows, the celebration of artistic beauty and the wild pursuit of pleasure, with demons waiting in the dark.

loved this! Cassandra Clare did it again. she made me fall in love with these characters and then broke my heart. though in the most beautiful way possible. after all the emotional turmoil is what I love most about her books. it's so beautifully written and the story is so amazing. this is worth every minute and every penny.

Another Amazing Shadowhunter story!

I absolutely loved this new installment to the Shadowhunter world. Having read the book physically and now listened the characters are alive as ever.
For sure Cassandra has once again woven a story of love, friendship and betrayal. And I cannot wait to see where else this Trilogy will go!!!

Fantastic story and narrator

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and Finty Williams has a lovely reading voice. I know the Shadowhunters books tend to mix it up with the narrators, but I really hope to hear her narrate the rest of the trilogy. Cassandra Clare did an amazing job with these characters and they all feel very distinct, which isn’t easy when writing about a second generation.

Wonderful look into the lives of younger shadow hunters

Delighted to have been able to hear this audiobook. Got through the whole book in a couple of days as I didn’t want to turn it off! Featuring the children of the featured characters from The Infernal Devices, this does not disappoint as another past times shadow hunter story. Wild happenings, true love and demonic incursions galore. Loved it!

Amazing story! As always!

Another extention to the existing shadowhunter universe, this book series follows the adventures children of our heroes from "the infernal devices" series.
I really loved it and can't wait for the next one!

The narrator was good and was easy to listen to, except for her voice for Will Herondale. She gave him a full on welsh accent.
There is a scene with Tessa where the narrator explicitly says he got a slight lilting welsh accent when he was exhausted, so I don't see why the narrator would always do it when he speaks.

Excellent narration!

I loved this story & am eager to know the rest of it. I love all the Shadowhunter books, with the Infernal Devices being my favourite.
Filled with intriguing characters that I’m eager to learn more about & to hear more of Will, Tessa, Jem & co.
