Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting On Wednesday hosted at Breaking the Spine.

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare
Expected publication: December 4th 2018 by Margaret K. McElderry Books

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 #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling The Dark Artifices trilogy.

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.

I’m absolutely desperate for this final book. The Dark Artifices is my second favorite series by Cassandra Clare (The Infernal Devices is my #1 fave) so I’m having high expectations for it. And I’m sure she’ll rip all our hearts out like she did with the previous book. Also, the cover is so gorgeous! β™₯

  6. I have only read one of Cassandra Clare's books — "City of Bones", the first novel of the Mortal Instruments series, and was not entirely thrilled by it. I might give it a second chance, though….
