Dark secrets and forbidden love threaten the very survival of the Shadowhunters in Cassandra Clare’s Queen of Air and Darkness, the final novel in the #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling The Dark Artifices trilogy. Queen of Air and Darkness is a Shadowhunters novel
What if damnation is the price of true love?
Innocent blood has been spilled on the steps of the Council Hall, the sacred stronghold of the Shadowhunters. In the wake of the tragic death of Livia Blackthorn, the Clave teeters on the brink of civil war. One fragment of the Blackthorn family flees to Los Angeles, seeking to discover the source of the blight that is destroying the race of warlocks. Meanwhile, Julian and Emma take desperate measures to put their forbidden love aside and undertake a perilous mission to Faerie to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead. What they find in the Courts is a secret that may tear the Shadow World asunder and open a dark path into a future they could never have imagined. Caught in a race against time, Emma and Julian must save the world of Shadowhunters before the deadly power of the parabatai curse destroys them and everyone they love.

OJDUG QXBSV OH MY GOD IM SO EXCITED IM GONNA DIE BUT LIKE iM also rEalLYY stressed and I fkn stg if any of my favs die in this book I actually scream for hours. please be merciful, cassie.
wouahhhhhh ! everytime i read a synopsis I am amazed. i’m like “it’s gonna be so good, but it’s gonna be horrible, but i will read it!”.
“By the freaking Angel, this sounds amazing AND terrifying!” aha, i wouldn’t have said it better, Cat!
By the Angel, I so can’t wait!!!!!!!
I just felt my heart stop at least fifty times. OK, I might be exaggerating a little, but seriously. I cannot wait, but at the same time, I’m so nervous!!!!!!!!!! If another one of my favorite characters dies, especially if it’s sudden and horribly like Livvy, I might go into a permanent panic attack and then just die. By the angel, I’m so excited but scared for this book!
2018? aw come on! I want to see more of kit and ty so badly! Wanna see their love between boys.
I believe that Emma and Julian have increased in power in more areas than their Rune drawing strength since the parabatai bond has been enhanced by their epically non-platonic love. The only way I can see them defeating the Unseelie King is by using that power as it grows (they do not have the benefit of more potent Angel blood). I am excited to see how much better of a fighter Emma becomes (I love female heroines who can defeat immortal beings with just a sword). The other side of this parabatai coin is Julian’s mental and verbal manipulation. I would not be disappointed with a “Hollywood” ending where they find a way to save all shadowhunters including themselves. But, it would make a greater impact if they truly sacrifice themselves and become the stuff of shadowhunter legends.
