Read A Chapter Sampler From Cassandra Clare’s LADY MIDNIGHT

The LA Institute meets with the Faerie in LADY MIDNIGHT chapter sampler!

If you didn’t get a chapter sampler packet from Cassandra Clare’s Lady Midnight at a book event over the past few months and the excerpts in Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy just weren’t enough for you, we have some good news!

Simon & Schuster Australia just released a seriously intriguing chapter sampler from Lady Midnight called ‘Highborn Kinsman’! A lesson on The Cold Peace goes awry when the Faeries show up at the Los Angeles Institute’s doorstep, forcing Julian and Emma to confront them Julian’s tortured uncle, Mark.



Lady Midnight is out on March 8, 2016. It is currently available for pre-order.

Official Synopsis:

It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.

Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions…

Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother Mark—who was captured by the faeries five years ago—has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind—and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?
