Summary: 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.
Why I’m Desperately Waiting: As this is the second of the latest series of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunters novels, it is expected to be great. We have met this amazing host of characters in LM and now we get to delve into them even more! While book 1 had it’s drawbacks, i have faith that book 2 and the rest of the series can pick up from where book 1 ended. And please god let Jem and Tessa show up again.
