New Synopsis for ‘Lady Midnight’ Released

Lady Midnight The Dark Artifices

The end of The Mortal Instruments was only the beginning for The Dark Artifices.

Waterstones has released a new synopsis for the first installment of The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare titled, Lady Midnight, which ushers in a new generation of Shadowhunters.

Glitz, glamours and Shadowhunters abound in this heartrending opening to Cassandra Clare’s Dark Artifices series, a sequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series. It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses. Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across LA, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions…Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother Mark – who was captured by the faeries five years ago – has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?

Lady Midnight will be released on March 8, 2016.
