What it is about
Emma is the best shadowhunter of her generation and she lives in the LA institute with her best friend and patabatai, Julian. Julian practically runs the institute because his uncle has severe PTSD after being tortured. He also takes care of his siblings and is basically a parent. Julian and Emma start realising their feelings for each other, cold peace doesn’t seem to be appeasing all parties involved and something strange is going on in Los Angeles.

Pick this up if
You want an amazing, fast paced and thrilling urban fantasy. You like books with multiple sub-plots that start interconnecting. You like forbidden, angsty romances. You like adventure and action. You like a good family dynamic. You like cinnamon bun heroes. You want cameos from previous characters. 

Don’t pick this up if
You hate extremely long books. You hate it when characters do dumb things. You’re not into character driven books. You haven’t read (or read but didn’t like) Cassandra Clare’s previous books.

I get asked how I read so many books. This is how I do it:
Kindle Unlimited (definitely worth it for romance readers)
Audible (2 free audiobooks for your first month); I have the Audible Premium Plus with 2 credits a month
Prime membership allows me to get new books at my doorstep fast (get the first month free). I have Prime Student which comes with a 6 month free trial.
I also had Audible Escape but it got cancelled 😦
But Audible Plus is supposed to have a lot of books across all genres

The perfect gifts for a loved one
Audible gift membership
