Gr 9 Up—Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn have grown up together, struggling with the deaths of their respective parents and the responsibilities of caring for Julian's younger siblings after the Dark War. Five years after they convince the Clave to allow Emma to stay with the Blackthorns in Los Angeles, Emma and Julian realize that they are drawn to each other in a way prohibited by the rules of their parabatai bond. Julian's older brother Mark returns, conditionally, from the Wild Hunt to help the duo investigate recent murders that Emma believes may be connected to those of her parents. The Clave insists that her parents' deaths were related to the war, so true to Shadowhunter form, the teens take matters into their own hands, enlisting the help of the warlock Malcolm Fade and their tutor, Diana Wrayburn, as they pursue a dangerous truth that will unlock secrets of betrayal, obsession, and revenge. Complications abound, with multiple cliff-hangers that hint at the hard-hitting drama to come as the series continues. Clare delivers spectacular Shadowhunter fare with her trademark street tough yet emotionally fragile adolescent characters taking on adult roles and includes plenty of violent action and passionate romance to satisfy fans of "The Infernal Devices" and "The Mortal Instruments" series, who will be thrilled to see some of their favorite characters from the previous books make appearances. VERDICT A must-have for libraries with devoted Shadowhunter fans, who will undoubtedly be waiting for this emotionally intense beginning to her new series.—Kerry Sutherland, Akron-Summit County Public Library, OH
"Positively a quiver with secret ardor and murderous zeal." (Kirkus)
"Fresh and...wonderfully told." (Booklist)
"Clare's well-developed protagonists..., pell-mell action sequences, complicated family dynamics, and fascinating magic system continue to engage." (Publishers Weekly)

They go against the law to try to catch a killer in a bargain for mark to return home for good; it seems too good to be true when the investigation appears tied to the death of Emma's parents. She may finally get justice for them. But will it really sooth the beast that's driven her the last 5 years? Or make their deaths that much worse?
Will they know who to trust, or will it change them in other ways, bend what they knew, altering their reality forever?
I enjoyed getting to know Emma and Julian better, learning how Tess and Brother Zacchariah fit into things. Nice glimpse at Magnus snd Alec, to see jace and clary a few years older, a little mire sure of themselves, still ready to fight the battle that needs fighting, but never forgetting those younger or who they care about. The same at their core, just 5 years older, wiser, a little less reckless.
Yea, Izzy and Simon, and clary and Simon parabotai. Just makin it official, they've been connected, fighting each other's battles their whole lives. They always saw the other, even when the rest of the world did not.
Boy, Cassandra clare knows how to build yo the next book. Wondering about Diana still, the fate of the blackthorns, if love can bring miracles ... Or terrors... How Emma and Julian's parabotai bond us impacted by Emma's sacrifice, what it does to the Julian and Mark's renewed bond, what of Christina and Perfect Diego? And of Kit, who is apparently Jace's long lost relative and at least part Shadowhunter?
If you are looking for a fun, pull at your heart strings, crazy adventure where you feel you are part of the story, hanging out with a bunch of amazing characters this series is for you.
You will find yourself wanting more and more of the story and wanting to be part wild world of the shadow hunters. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
As for the book itself, it lived up to my expectations. Rather than a rehash of her other Shadowhunter stories with a few twists thrown in she has built upon them. The characters were introduced in the final Mortal Instuments book. She has developed them well. The story is compelling, the geographical setting is new, the plots are new. Nice continuation.
