Synopsis ( back of the book) In a kingdom by the sea…
In a secret world where half-angel warriors are sworn to fight demons, parabatai is a sacred word.
A parabatai is your partner in battle. A parabatai is your best friend. Parabatai can be everything to each other—but they can never fall in love.
Emma Carstairs is a warrior, a Shadowhunter, and the best in her generation. She lives for battle. Shoulder to shoulder with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, she patrols the streets of Los Angeles, where vampires party on the Sunset Strip, and faeries—the most powerful of supernatural creatures—teeter on the edge of open war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries turn up murdered in the same way Emma’s parents were when she was a child, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma’s chance for revenge—and Julian’s chance to get back his brother Mark, who is being held prisoner by the faerie Courts. All Emma, Mark, and Julian have to do is solve the murders within two weeks…and before the murderer targets them.
Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. And each clue she unravels uncovers more secrets. What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter Law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents—and can she bear to know the truth?
The darkly magical world of Shadowhunters has captured the imaginations of millions of readers across the globe. Join the adventure in Lady Midnight, the long-awaited first volume of a new trilogy from Cassandra Clare.
My rating on Goodreads : 5/5
My Review : I loved this book soo soo much !! I actually held off reading this for a long time because I didn’t want to finish it, I love reading about shadowhunters so much they are so interesting to me. When Julian and Emma started to fall in love my heart was so full but Emma crushed it 😦 When Emma told Julian she couldn’t be with him my heart broke for him. Emma finds out the truth about parabatia which makes her change her decisions of loving him. I hope in the next two books they find out they can actually be together, I might cry if they do and I definitely will if they don’t. Honestly Cassie Clare as it says on the back of her books she is the new queen of fantasy. Another thing that kinda shocked me was Malcolm how sad is that, that one of their close allies turn against them, dru and Tavy livvy and ty are so cute I hope livvy gets what she wants and ty becomes her parabatia. As the rule is ” The law is hard, but it is the law” A stupid law but it is. I cant wait to pick up Lord Of Shadows!
