Hardcover: 704 pages

Publication Date: May 23rd, 2017

Goodreads Synopsis

*Usually I’d include a blurb but since this is a sequel, I don’t want to give away any spoilers. Click on the Goodreads link above if you’d like to spoil yourself anyways!

I’ve been waiting too darned long for this book. It’s coming out next Tuesday but my patience is running out. I need it now. That cliffhanger was too much. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!!!!

  1. Oh so many people I know are so so so excited for this book, and even though I still have a load of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter world books to get through I’m starting to get a little excited for this book myself as well! Still at least once I finish Lady Midnight (eventually) I won’t have to wait before starting Lord of Shadows, from what I understand LM ends on a bit of a cliffhanger! 🙂
    I really hope you enjoy this one Azia, not long to go now! 😀 ❤

    1. Yes! Get excited! If I was being truthful, I’d say Lady Midnight surpasses the quality of the original TMI series but hasn’t quite reached the level of TID. And that’s always nice when you don’t have to wait for a sequel. Waiting is torture. But, you know that more than anybody after that cliffhanger in AGOS haha
      Thanks, Beth! Hope it’s as good as I’m expecting it to be ❤

      1. Well my excitement levels are definitely rising. I want to try and be up to date on the Shadowhunter books by the end of this year. That also means it won’t be an as long wait for the last book in the LM trilogy.
        The cliffhanger in AGOS nearly killed me, swear to god!
        That’s all right, and yeah I hope so too, for everyone who’s looking forwards to it. 😀 ❤

      2. That’s a fair goal to have! There are so many great books coming out and the TMI series will always be there so you have time 😉
        And I can imagine that feeling. That cliffhanger was downright cruel LOL
        Certainly 🙂 ❤

  2. YES LORD OF SHADOWS!! 😁 You know I’m just as excited as your for this one, Azia! I seriously can’t believe it’s out on Tuesday and I’m actually at that stage where I’m scared and excited but also might not be ready to read it because I’ve been hearing some things. Not spoiler things but vague mentions of heartbreak. I don’t think I’m prepared! Have you read the first 50 pages that was released yet because I did and loved it. And then the snippets Cassie Clare has been posting on her Instagram too. 😍

    1. I’M FREAKING OUT OVER HERE, Melissa. I cannot WAIT to have this book in my hands. We’ve waited a year for this lol. I haven’t heard a thing about it until recently but I’ve heard that there might be a really sad ending to this one. I don’t know if my heart’s ready for that!!! And no! I haven’t read those 50 pages. Where can I find them??? I’m horrible at keeping up with authors on social media lol. I’ve only read that one tiny little snippet between Ty and Kit. There were others? I’ll be checking those out RIGHT NOW. My god I’m so pumped for this lol

      1. SAME!! I’m actually rereading Lady Midnight right now and have been working on an Emma/Julian playlist because SO MUCH EXCITEMENT! For some reason it feels like we’ve been waiting longer than a year. I blame that evil cliffhanger! I’ve heard the same about a sad ending. I don’t want a sad ending. I’m actually really scared for all of my favorites and am not prepared for whatever heartbreak Cassie Clare has in store for us. And you can find the first 50 pages here https://www.bustle.com/p/start-reading-cassandra-clares-lord-of-shadows-right-now-exclusive-chapter-reveal-58113 😊. Beyond the Ty and Kit one and the first 50 pages I’ve only read three or four other snippets on her Instagram. Two of which are for Mark and you will freak over them! 🙈


      2. You’re making me want to reread it now! Can’t wait to see that playlist too! 😀 That cliffhanger was just as bad as AGOS’s. I’m just hoping all the Blackthorns will be okay. And Emma of course! Yaaaay! Thank you. I’ll check that out sometime before Tuesday 😀 Read the ones on Instagram. OMG Mark and Kieran. Cannot WAIT to see where that goes. I am so ready for this book lol

      3. You should! I’m actually really glad I reread Lady Midnight because I didn’t realize how much I didn’t catch the first time or the things I forgot. Gave me some theories for LoS. 🙈 And same! I need the Blackthorns, Emma, and all of my TMI and TID characters to be okay in the end. But… I saw Cassandra Clare tweet something about a brutal twist at the end and I’m scared! 😭
        YES! The Mark and Kieran snippet made me freak out too! I saw another today floating on someone else’s instagram that has Alec and Magnus in it too and I can’t wait to see the whole scene because 😍. Did you see the Cristina and Mark one too? I swear only this author could make me ship both ships. I can’t stand love triangle like situations ever except in her books. She just makes them all so likeable and the romance doesn’t hinder them as characters. How? 😂
        I swear once we both read LoS we’re going to have to have a huge book discussion because I foresee a lot of feels. I might need a LoS support group or something LOL.

      4. Yeah I should probably reread it before reading the second. I’m sure there’s a ton of things I’ve forgotten or didn’t catch on to the second time around 🙂 And that tweet scares me too! Please, don’t touch Magnus or any of the Blackthorns. I BEG OF YOU CASSIE CLARE.
        Yeah, I saw all of them. Honestly I don’t know who I want to Mark or Christina to end up with. It’s just so hard to like one more than the other lol.
        Oh yes. Can’t wait to have that discussion. I foresee a lot of broken hearts at the end of this one. Oh goodness I’m scared to start but I really need to know what happens next! LOL

      5. I FINISHED IT! I’m not saying anything because I don’t want to spoil anything for you but the way it ended was not what I expected at all. But the whole book was incredible and it also broke my heart and I can’t wait until you read it! The wait for the last book is going to be torture. 😭
        I still don’t know who I want Mark or Cristina to end up with. Definitely hard to like one ship over the other.
        Well as soon as you do read and finish it let me know! I’m not sure if I’ll be writing a review for it because I don’t even know where to start lol.

      6. I finished it yesterday and oh man Melissa, I loved it so much. Possibly her most sophisticated work yet. That ending had me in near tears. I mean, I know something had to happen to the Blackthorns but I still wasn’t ready for that 😭😭 Ugh I can’t believe we have to wait so long for the final book!
        I honestly don’t know who I want Christina or Mark to end up with either. I still favor Mark and Kieran but I can see them ending up with someone else entirely. Also, not sure how I want Kit and Ty to work out, but after everything that happened, Kit will be even more important to Ty 😢 I’m also reallllly worried about Julian.
        I need a couple days to sort through my emotions before I try to write that review haha
