Description

Sunny Los Angeles can be a dark place indeed in Cassandra Clare's Lord of Shadows, the sequel to the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Lady Midnight. Lord of Shadows is a Shadowhunters novel.

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.

James Marsters is Amazing

What made the experience of listening to Lord of Shadows the most enjoyable?

Equal parts the narrator and the story. This may be my favorite book of all of the Shadowhunters books.

What did you like best about this story?

I feel like I really got to know the characters at the L.A. Institute. New information about the Parabatai bond was also very interesting (and scary).

Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I'm a big fan of the Harry Dresden series and was worried that I would keep hearing Harry when I listened to this book. Not so. James Marsters is incredibly talented and he brought every one of these characters to life. I knew who was speaking at all times. Probably my favorite Audible performer.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The last chapter. Wow! I hope there's a way that some of what happened can be undone.I actually cried

Any additional comments?

Buy this audio book. You won't regret it.

Blows the other stories away

The story of Emma and Julian and their families make Clary and Jace seem like tween stories. This story is heartbreaking and phenomenal.

beautifully performed

James Marsters is sublime. He gave each character an unique voice and I am at a loss to say any more! Bravo!

So so

I love Casandra Clare's books and have ready all of them. Unfortunately while the general story of this book was great I'd have to say that she went way overboard with the teen love. There's so much of it I found myself wanting to skip sections of the chapter just to get on with the story. It's almost as if her book was too short so she added a bunch of repetitive teen drama and silly mushy unnecessary romance scenes to fill it up. Usually her books are well balanced when it comes to drama, romance and action but defiantly not in this book.

The weakest Shadowhunter novel thus far

The narrator was the only thing that pushed me to finish this book. While I've enjoyed most of the Shadowhunter books, this one felt like a chore. The plot felt repetitive and boring and I'm finding myself losing interest in the characters. There aren't any real shocking moments until the very end. The worst part is the whiny monologue which pops up constantly throughout the story. And it's frustrating that there's one simple thing that the main character could do to resolve her main issue, yet she doesn't do this simple thing and no explanation is ever offered for why she can't seem to bring herself to do this. Sorry to be vague, trying to keep this spoiler free for anyone who wants to waste their time on this book.

Another masterpiece - You won't be disappointed!

Clare's Shadowhunters world is exquisite. The author isn't afraid to take risks with her characters and it's refreshing to have real world problems in a fantasy novel. The narration made the story come alive. Without giving spoilers the cliffhanger left me jaw-dropped and crying but hungry for more. I can't wait for the next in the series!

Where is the Action?

What would have made Lord of Shadows better?

The Shadow Hunters series, has for a long time had a great balance of plot development, character development, great story and Action. Lord of Shadows could of be much better had their been more action scenes. Very slow and disappointing.

What was most disappointing about Cassandra Clare’s story?

Action, Action, where was the action? the drama, action, carried into the Clockwork series, etc.. However, this book bored me and I am a big fan all the books. Lord of Shadows was very disappointing and I fast forwarded through some of it.

Would you listen to another book narrated by James Marsters?

Maybe

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Very Disappointed.

Any additional comments?

Please add drama and action. With so many interesting characters and possibilities. This series should be a very powerful, dramatic and action packed book that moves. It should make you want to read it again. This one didn't. Sorry

Keeps you wanting more, every single time...

This book was another great adventure in the Cassandra Clare series. I am a HUGE fan of all the mortal Instruments books and I cant help but be ensnared into another great series thats a continuation of the last 2 sets shes has written. This book keeps you wanting to continue listening/reading even though it might not be possible. I cant wait for the next one to cone out already!!!

I can't get enough of Cassandra Clare!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes and James Marsters! He can make the Wall Street Journal sound interesting. I love all of Cassandra Clare's books and this is no different. She continues to amaze me with new characters and situations that are intertwined with her previous series but with an all new twist. I can't wait for the next book, this one left me with a shock and I need the story to continue now!

Exciting!

I really like the books and the whole story, though the lovedramas could be a bit less for my liking.
I seriously DON'T like the reader... yes he is good at his job, but it annoys the hell outta me that he can't decide for one volume for his reading.. I'm switching between turning the volume up and down aaaaall the time -_- otherwise he is really great, nice voice, nice accents and impersonatings but the volume is a real downer.. :/

Spannend und toll gelesen

Ich mag die Bücher von Cassandra Clare alle sehr. Diese Reihe ist die erste, die ich höre. Nach der Enttäuschung mit der Leserin des ersten Buches, bin ich nun mehr als zufrieden. Geradezu begeistert. James Marsters liest großartig, mit Akzenten, Betonungen und Varianzen in der Stimmhöhe. Ein Bisschen befremdlich wirkte am Anfang die Stimme der Emma, aber die Figuren in einem Hörbuch allein anhand der Betonungen des Lesenden auseinanderhalten zu können, ist beeindruckend und macht Freude beim Hören.
Die Geschichte ist wie immer spannend, mehr wird aber nicht verraten.

Amazing as always

I love everything Cassandra Clare. Her YA series are all exceptional. This book left me weeping and begging for the next one (in part because it ends on an awful cliffhanger).

It got real

Most of the JA Urban Fantasy novels don't Take the time to get real. This book Just did it.
In the last installment we got a certain image of all the personell. This book showed, what happens when life slowly grates on the fundaments of sanity and character.
I read a lot to get away from these things and there are short moments in which I hate the author for not spareing at least fictional persons from what loss and heart break and fear do to you. But in the end, these books are always getting in the "realy worthy of reading and reading again" list. Same here. Prepare yourself for cursing because part three is sceduled for 2019.
The voice is sublime.
Reading Lady Midnight first is strongly recomended!

Die Stimme ist nicht sehr differenziert

Nachdem ich den ersten Teil auf deutsch gehört habe war ich natürlich schon an eine andere (in meinen Ohren bessere) Stimme gewohnt. Es hat ein bisschen gedauert sich daran zu gewöhnen, dass die Stimme nicht so viele Unterschiede macht. Ich bin gespannt was der dritte Teil bereithält, aber das dauert noch so ewig!
