Next month will see the highly anticipated release of the third book in The Dark Artifices trilogy by bestselling author Cassandra Clare, creator of the Shadowhunters.

The Queen of Air and Darkness is a Shadowhunters novel that completes The Dark Artifices trilogy and it releases on December 4th.


To celebrate the release we have 5 complete sets of the trilogy to giveaway to lucky readers.

The Dark Artifices Trilogy consists of:

Lady Midnight

The Shadowhunters of Los Angeles star in the first novel in Cassandra Clare’s newest series, The Dark Artifices, a sequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

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?

Lord of Shadows

Emma Carstairs has finally avenged her parents. She thought she’d be at peace. But she is anything but calm. Torn between her desire for her parabatai Julian and her desire to protect him from the brutal consequences of parabatai relationships, she has begun dating his brother, Mark. But Mark has spent the past five years trapped in Faerie; can he ever truly be a Shadowhunter again?

And the faerie courts are not silent. The Unseelie King is tired of the Cold Peace, and will no longer concede to the Shadowhunters’ demands. Caught between the demands of faerie and the laws of the Clave, Emma, Julian, and Mark must find a way to come together to defend everything they hold dear—before it’s too late.

And the Thrilling conclusion to the trilogy

Queen of Air and Darkness

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 blight 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.

51 thoughts on “GIVEAWAY: The Dark Artifices Trilogy – Cassandra Clare

  1. Vampire Accademy series.

    The series has everything I look for in a book, strong female lead; romance; action; intriguing plots with twists , turns and suspense .. lots of great secondary characters. I devoured the first four books and have read many a times 😉

  2. The Belgariad by David Eddings.

    Growing up I always hoped a movie adaptatio or tv series would be made of the Belgariad – and I still do!

  3. The City of Bones series. It was a series where I absolutely fell in love with the characters and felt like I was involved in the story. I remember being hooked when I was in high school and it got me through some long recesses and lunches.

  4. Funnily enough my favourite is “the mortal instruments” series by this very author , Cassandra Clare. I loved the world she created , and the love story of Clary and Chase and I would love to delve back into the world of the Shadowhunters and follow Emma and Julian who also feature in the later books of Mortal Instruments series but as young children..

  5. The Dragon walker series by DK Holmburg is currently my favourite, but there are too many to remain static…. I enjoy most good fantasy authors.

  6. Hunger Games, The Mortal Instruments, Harry Potter, Divergent – I really do love YA
    But my favourite if I have to pick is Narnia a classic beyond compare!

  7. Sci fi / fantasy lover since my school introduced me to “The Halfmen of O” by Maurice Gee when I was 8. I cannot express adequately in words how this genre helped me through my difficult high school years. Terry Brooks, Raymond E Feist, Robert Jordan (rip ) , P.c & Kristin Cast, David Eddings and Cassandra Clare are just some of the Authors who make up my extensive collection!

  8. Who can go past ‘Harry Potter’. Counting down the days for the next book release, awaiting more magical deeds and intricate weaving of the story line.

    There’s magic in J K Rowling’s formula of writing, to enable the whole family to sit in raptured attention as I read aloud the next chapter.

  9. Hmmm, where do I start? The Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon (a fab adult writer too, just saying 😉 ) Not sure if it’s children or YA but Deltora Quest was great and I got to meet the illustrator a few times, he was awesome, Little Fur by Isobel Carmody with the best covers in the business, also by Ms Carmody, The Obernewtyn Chronicles, The Hunger Games was great, as was Divergent, And I very much enjoyed the Shadowhunters, not so much the show although it’s grown on me.

    Oops, I digress, please excuse the waffle, I got excited! My all-time favourite Harry Potter, obviously and Always,

  10. I really enjoyed The Hunger Games Trilogy, it reminded me of a short story by Stephen King, The Long Walk. Although I would love a book which detailed The First Hunger . Perfect for summer reading

  11. The Fallen Series by Lauren Kate. I guess we all have this thing for the bad boy so to ramp it up and have a romance with a fallen angel adds another dimension to things. Mix in all that frustration of finding and losing each other over and over through time. The desire to have everything work out is strong.

  12. Such a hard question as YA Fantasy is probably my favourite genre to read. I’m loving the Court of Thorns and Roses series at the moment. The first book took you in one direction and you thought the story would go one way but then that was completely turned on its head. It’s really interesting to follow the story of Feyre as she fights for her kingdom and the survival of humans and fey alike.

  13. The Vampire Academy series because it reminded me of my favourite TV show, Buffy. The romance between Rose and Dmitri was breath taking! I was cheering for them through every book as their journey came to a wonderful conclusion.

  14. Well it’s got to be Harry Potter, how can you go past it?
    Aside is somewhere I would never cast it!
    I’d like to always have it with me in a basket.
    Although that technically doesn’t rhyme. blast it!

  15. I always loved the Harry Potter series and now the fantastic beasts ones they are all so magical and take you to places only your mind can dream of

  16. The HARRY POTTER series by J.K. Rowling tops my list. The magic of reading swept through the entire family. That’s impressive and a bonus for such a fantastic and fanciful series.

  17. Couldn’t you ask an easier question? There are so many great YA series’ out there, and you’re asking me to play favorites?! Okay, if forced to choose, I’d probably go for Elizabeth George’s “Edge of the Water” series.- it shows young people making challenging choices, with a strong paranormal element. Each novel has a complete story, but there’s also an over-arching plot that runs through the series and is compelling. George melds the contemporary and the paranormal with extraordinary skill, along with the talent for strong characterisation that shows in her adult crime novels. I’m longing for the final novel to find out what happens to everyone.

  18. I love The Witchland series… not only did my daughter read it but I did too and I loved the ‘girl hero’ message the books carried.

  19. ‘Looking for a Hero’ was an insight
    sometimes we just don’t get it right
    kept me reading and made me think about choices
    and as a person we have choices
    Written in an interesting way
    hard to put down I have to say

  20. The Dark Artifices trilogy is by far my favourite trilogy; its action packed, mystifying and riveting from start to finish!

  21. Very Hard to choose: Witchling Academy – Seventh born is the first of the series and only one Ive read so far but entirely engrossing!

  22. I loved it when my kids became teens so I could buy books for them and read them too! I love most YA reads but ‘we’ last read The Darkest Minds and it was fantastic.

  23. One of life’s greatest pleasure is discovering a series of books that you just love beyond all reason

    The Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

    The writing is captivating and gripping and you are put on the edge of your seat dying to know what will happen next. It has every character you could possibly ask for with exciting twists and turns

  24. For me it would be The Mortal Instruments. It’s the series that got me back into reading after stopping for a few years. It will always mean something to me, i fell inlove with all the characters, the whole shadowhunter world. I love all of Cassandra Clares books involving the shadowhunters

  25. My favourite series has to be ‘The Hunger Games’.

    When I was 11, my mum read the trilogy to me. Not only did the book bring us closer together, but it also introduced me to the world of YA. I loved it because at the time it was so unique, unlike anything I had ever read before. I loved how gripping and moving the trilogy was. I remember going to a midnight screening of Mockingjay part 2 and dressing up as Katniss, while my mum dressed up as Effie. I was obsessed with those books for years. Two of my best friends and I bonded over the series as well. Although I’m not quite as obsessed with the series now, I will forever love it for the joy and friendships it brought me.

  26. I love The Mortal Instruments series and i loved the movie mortal instruments as well. It helped get me through a dark period in my life.

  27. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead!
    I’ve always loved the complexity of the entire system Richelle created with these stories. She’s created an intricate social and political system that takes this way further than just being a stereotypical teenage vampire novel. It’s complex and there’s a LOT of content that explores so many of the different characters – and she’s not afraid to take risks in terms of the plot, which makes it more realistic and engaging (novels aren’t supposed to have perfect stories – especially in this genre, characters are going to come and go). I really really love the idea of a strong female lead as well.

  28. In a time I still believed in magic and Santa Claus was real I unwrapped Obernewton by Isobelle Carmody and was enthralled. I’ll never forget my first, my favourite – The Obernewton chronicles by Isobelle Carmody.

  29. Harry Potter remains a firm favourite series overall, but closer to the realms of YA, I loved the way that The Hunger Games made me think!

  30. The Hunger Games would be my choice.
    The books were so much better than the movie which I felt was a let down to the books.

  31. The Infernal Devices, I live the setting in 1800s London as well as the tie in to the other Shadowhunters series

  32. There are so many series that I have really really liked….Narnia; Harry Potter; The Young Elites…….I recently finished a series called “Kingdom of Fire” by Jessica Cluess. ……A really exhilarating fast action tale featuring magical duels, mystical training, and terrifying monsters that will keep you awake at night…..I swear this book will have captured you after just the first chapter….It got me 🙂

  33. The Hunger Games – one of my all time favourites. I’ve read the series three times and each time I can feel the adrenaline rushing through my veins as I switch the page!

  34. Favourite YA Fantasy Series is The Witchlands by Susan Dennard. Epic plots, swordplay with romance to boot, a female version of Lord of The Rings.

  35. Harry Potter. Fear, excitement, magical and creative. Love, deceit, respect and enchanting. Following Harry’s life as he grows is heartfelt and rewarding.

  36. I read the first Harry Potter book when I was 6 years old, and read all the books in the series as I grew up. As an adult now I still enjoy re-reading them.
