LORD OF SHADOWS will be narrated by an urban fantasy genre favorite!
Old school urban fantasy meets new school urban fantasy as a fan favorite from Buffy The Vampire Slayer is stepping into the world of Cassandra Clare‘s The Dark Artifices series!
James Marsters aka Spike will narrate the audiobook version of Lord of Shadows, the second book in the popular series and Clare’s tenth novel set in the Shadowhunter world (not counting two novella collections.)
“One of my biggest inspirations for creating the Shadowhunters was always classic urban fantasy like Buffy and it’s an honor and a bit of a trip to have my favorite character, Spike, read Lord of Shadows.” Clare told EW, who exclusively reported the news.
Lord of Shadows will be released on May 23, 2017.
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.
