Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine @ breakingthespine.blogspot.com where we book bloggers talk about a book that isn’t released yet that we are excited about.
My Pick this Week is………
Book 1 in the Dark Artifices series
Genre: Young Adult Urban/Paranormal Fantasy
Release Date: March 8th 2016
Summary from Goodreads:
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 am Excited
I am a HUGE fan of Cassandra Clares books. I read anything she writes. Her wit,humor,characters,plot,writing,shocks,surprises,and the pure joy I experience when reading her books are just a few of the reasons why I get all sugar hyped jumping up and down screaming for joy over every one of her new books. I love the Shadowhunter world and can’t wait to spend time with a new group of shadowhunters. I was hoping CC was going to do a book where the parabatai were in love as it is forbidden. I am a huge fan of forbidden romance. I knew that so-called peace the shadowhunter goverement made with the faeries was going to end badly, The cover is just drop dead gorgeous and you can just spend hours looking at it. I already have this book pre-ordered and March 8th 2016 can’t come fast enough.
What are you waiting on this week?
