Waiting on Wednesday - Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

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

Lady Midnight
by Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Release Date: March 8th, 2016
Pre-order: [Chapters/Indigo] [Amazon]
Los Angeles. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to to discovering exactly what it was that killed her parents and getting her revenge.

Raised in the Los Angeles Institute with the Blackthorn family, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian Blackthorn. A series of murders in the city catch her attention — they seem to have the same characteristics as the deaths of her parents. Could the murderer be the same person? And her attention isn’t the only one caught: someone has been murdering Downworlders as well. The Fair Folk make a deal with the Institute: if the Blackthorns and Emma will investigate the killings, they’ll return Mark Blackthorn to his home. The catch: they have only two weeks to find the killers. Otherwise it’s open war between faeries and Nephilim.

The Shadowhunters of the Institute must race against time to catch the killers, even as they begin to suspect the involvement of those closest to them. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with the one person in the world she’s absolutely forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.

Why I'm Anticipating This Title:
I'm a big fan of Cassandra Clare and her Shadowhunter universe. It's been a part of my shelves for years (I actually started this series when I was in high school, wooo!) and I'm so excited for Lady Midnight to take us on a journey with brand new characters. How about you?

Happy Reading,


  1. I'm so excited for Lady Midnight but the release is too far away
    Why do they do this to us?

  2. The cover for Lady Midnight is simply beautiful and everything I imagined it would be. Thank you for sharing your Waiting on Wednesday choice.

  3. I loved the Infernal Devices series and The Mortal Instruments but I was hoping for something else from her. Her Holly Black series is wonderful. Have you read it?

  4. I'm way behind on the world of Mortal Instruments (haven't even started book one), but I'd love to give it a try someday. Hope you enjoy this spinoff when you get to read it :)

    Happy Wednesday!
