Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
Published by Margaret K. McElderry Books in March 2016

"Emma Carstairs is a warrior, a Shadowhunter, and the best in her generation. She lives for battle. Shoulder to shoulder with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, she patrols the streets of Los Angeles, where vampires party on the Sunset Strip, and faeries—the most powerful of supernatural creatures—teeter on the edge of open war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries turn up murdered in the same way Emma’s parents were when she was a child, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma’s chance for revenge—and Julian’s chance to get back his brother Mark, who is being held prisoner by the faerie Courts. All Emma, Mark, and Julian have to do is solve the murders within two weeks…and before the murderer targets them.

Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. And each clue she unravels uncovers more secrets. What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter Law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents—and can she bear to know the truth?" -- From Goodreads

Will you like it?
Fans of Cassandra Clare's other series set in the Shadowhunter world will love this one.  It features characters that have appeared in her other two series. I can't wait to see where this series takes us!  I also listened to the audiobook.  I really liked the narrator, and it's always helpful to hear how the more interesting words are supposed to be pronounced.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy of the audiobook from my local library using Overdrive.
