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.

My 1st entry to the Shadow Hunters story

I am ashamed to say that this was the first time I ever heard of Shadow Hunters but oh my days did I enjoy this book. The amount of times I gasped, was frustrated and heartbroken. The narration was excellent!

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!

absolutely took my breath away

where to start with this magnificiant book! You know when something is THAT good it's really hard to put it in words .... the combination of Cassandra's cinematic writing and fintys' soothing voice just put me in a state of awe making it hard for me to put my device down. This being my first ever audio book I can certainly say I was not disappointed. From the very beginning you are plunged into this world of sheer brilliance and bombarded with emotions ; joy, sorrow, pity, love, fondness and best of all... the element of surprise. Just utterly beautifully sewn together the character the plot and it just really makes me appreciate literature even more. The power that the writer has to completly transport my whole being into this fantasy world I'm just lost for words . I also wanto credit the narrator she was very clear and I loved the way she changed her tone for each characters. I hope you too can experience the joy I did whilst listening to this book I simply can not wait for book 2!

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.

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.
