I cannot believe the time has come and I know have this book in my hands!! This is absolutely my most highly anticipated book release of the year. I am having flashbacks to last year picking up Lord of Shadows and reliving all the emotions and feelings that came out of that book. I think the Dark Artifices series is fast becoming my new favourite series of Cassandra Clare. I think her writing has gotten more developed and the story of the Blackthorn family is just so compelling. Julian and Emma’s relationship and their progression over the course of the books is wonderful to read, they are definitely one of my favourite YA couples. I am picking this book up and reading it right now!
