Those lucky enough to attend comicon this year were treated to a special sneak peek at Cassandra Clare’s upcoming novel Lady Midnight, which is set to hit shelves on March 8th, 2016.
You can now read said preview, which happens to be chapter four, in its entirety at shadowhunters.com.
Whatever Julian’s secret is (and he DEFINITELY has one), I’m excited to see how it affects his relationship with Emma, which Cassie has promised will be incredibly hearbreaking. From what little I’ve seen of The Dark Artifices, it looks like the characters will be just as loveable as those from TMI and TID, and I cannot wait to meet them for real. I’ve also very impressed with Cassandra Clare’s handling of the Cold Peace so far, in the way she has addressed the current issue of discrimination against an entire group of people because of the actions of a select few. It looks like this feud will make COG’s shadowhunter/downworlder issues look like a minor disagreement. Lady Midnight cannot come soon enough!
This should satisfy fans who haven’t been able to read the Tales From Shadowhunter Academy novellas, which conclude tomorrow with Angels Twice Descending and won’t be available in print until after Lady Midnight.
