Publisher's Summary

Dark secrets and forbidden love threaten the very survival of the Shadowhunters in Cassandra Clare's Queen of Air and Darkness, the final novel in the number-one New York Times and USA Today best-selling the Dark Artifices trilogy. Queen of Air and Darkness is a Shadowhunters novel. 

What if damnation is the price of true love? 

Innocent blood has been spilled on the steps of the Council Hall, the sacred stronghold of the Shadowhunters. In the wake of the tragic death of Livia Blackthorn, the Clave teeters on the brink of civil war. One fragment of the Blackthorn family flees to Los Angeles, seeking to discover the source of the disease that is destroying the race of warlocks. 

Meanwhile, Julian and Emma take desperate measures to put their forbidden love aside and undertake a perilous mission to Faerie to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead. What they find in the Courts is a secret that may tear the Shadow World asunder and open a dark path into a future they could never have imagined. Caught in a race against time, Emma and Julian must save the world of Shadowhunters before the deadly power of the parabatai curse destroys them and everyone they love.

Phenomenal!!!

James freaking Marsters is a champion narrator!!!
He is by far my favorite.

This book was a rollercoaster and I enjoyed every twist and turn.

Just Amazing

This will go down as one of my favorite books of all time. It was sooo good I gasped cried and laughed throughout. James Marsters (Spike) can read all my book to me and I would be happy.

too much

It's safe to say that I am no longer a Shadow Hunter fan. The books are getting longer, the plots are just all over the place. This book has the same themes and schemes as the original series just recycled and dragged out. The threesome was just too much. Her writing has gone from enchanting to pornagraphic and racie. She tackles a lot of real world issues, but we get enough of that on social media and the news. This book is no longer an escape from our mundane world.

I finished this in a day

This book was incredible. I was going back and forth between the audiobook and my physical copy, but I still got to listen to this for 11 hours straight while I worked. Cassandra Clare writes the best conclusions, and I am still recovering from how amazing this one was.

Want to stop

I came to the reviews to see if anyone else is having issues with the voice. Everything is read in a whisper, low tone, slow pace. Makes everything sound so boring. Sometimes I can't even tell when the narrator switches to another character's point of view. I'm thinking of returning this audiobook.

book is amazing. voice actor is awful.

couldn't finish listening to audible version. switched to the Kindle and read it. book is amazing. voice actor is terrible. a mix of whisper husky talking and insanely SLOW cadence. I had to increase the speed, then slow down for other characters voices. I couldn't even get past chapter 3, skipped half way to see if the voice acting got better. no luck. I will be returning this audible. not worth the annoyance of the voice actor trying too hard. keeping the Kindle. love the story.

Brilliant as always Cassandra Clare

I love the shadow hunter books and can't wait for more. The narrator did an excellent job. My favorite narrator for your shadow hunter books is Ed Westwick. Please have him narrate more of your books please.

Finishes strong

If I'm being honest, the first half of this book was really difficult to get through. Nothing but teenage soap opera and softcore porn writing. The narration was breathy and in whispers and agonizingly slow. I listened to the entire book at 1.35x speed just so it sounded like a normal paced audiobook. The "bad guys" were so obviously inspired by current politics that even though I'm against the current political administration I thought I was going to get headaches from the amount of eye rolling that took place. That being said, around the halfway point Clare actually gets back to a plotline and finishes the book strong. If I could split this book in half I would easily give 1 star to the beginning and 5 stars to the end. If you want the actual shadowhunters book and not erotic fan fiction, then skip to chapter 15 or 16. Clare should let someone else write her books if all she wants to write about is her barely legal teen sex fantasies.

loved it!

this is one of my new favorites! the story was so complex and beautiful. what I really love about this book, and this trilogy within the shadow hunter universe, is the way clare addresses current political and social issues, and weaves them so flawlessly into the story. and james marsters reads it beautifully. I love the sound of his voice, and his characters are so diverse, I hear every personality. truly excellent
