Waiting on Wednesday #279

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

LORD OF SHADOWS (The Dark Artifices #2) 

Goodreads Description:

Sunny Los Angeles can be a dark place indeed in Cassandra Clare’s Lord of Shadows, the sequel to the #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Lady Midnight.

Emma Carstairs has finally avenged her parents. She thought she’d be at peace. But she is anything but calm. Torn between her desire for her parabatai Julian and her desire to protect him from the brutal consequences of parabatai relationships, she has begun dating his brother, Mark. But Mark has spent the past five years trapped in Faerie; can he ever truly be a Shadowhunter again?

And the faerie courts are not silent. The Unseelie King is tired of the Cold Peace, and will no longer concede to the Shadowhunters’ demands. Caught between the demands of faerie and the laws of the Clave, Emma, Julian, and Mark must find a way to come together to defend everything they hold dear—before it’s too late.

Hardcover, 704 pages
Expected publication: May 23rd 2017 by Margaret K. McElderry Books

I'm not sure I will survive this book. It's going to break me into a million pieces, I'm sure of it. Sniffs. I loved book one so much. Lady Midnight was amazing. And I adore Cassie so, so much. But god. This book. I'm unsure how I will feel about it all. I mean, I know I will love it like crazy. But I also know that I will be beyond upset. I mean. Just read that summary. "dating Mark." I just. I won't be okay with it. With her kissing Mark. Which I'm sure she will. And I just. I can't take it. Sniffs. Julian does not deserve this. It is the only thing that would hurt him more than he could bear. He said that. Yet Emma is still doing this. I mean, she's doing it for a reason, I know, but that doesn't mean I'm okay with it. Hmph. But anyway. I'm hoping that maybe it isn't as bad as I'm imagining.. ugh. We'll see :D Either way, though, I know that I will love most of this book. Eee. And 700+ pages :D I'm so so excited. See my cover reveal post for it here :)
What are you waiting for on this dark Wednesday?


  1. I should really read book one LOL. I have it and I've been meaning to, it just never seems to be the right time. I hope you love this sequel! These books really have some gorgeous covers!

  2. I don't read Cassandra Clare books so this one isn't for me, but I know lots of people love her :) Hope you enjoy this one! Great pick :D

  3. I haven't read a Clare book in a long time and probably won't again, to be honest. BUT I love the covers of this new series - they are awesome. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week. =)
