Cover Reveal: LADY MIDNIGHT

GUYS GUYS GUYS. The cover for Lady Midnight came out!!! Here it is:

OH MY GOD IT'S SO PRETTY. Allow me to rant!


1. THE COLOUR PALETTE. I cannot get over the beautiful colours! Unlike the other covers for The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices, there isn't a popping gold or silver in the colour. This one is more subdued, and I think it makes the entire cover more intriguing!

2. Emma, front and center! Emma is floating in water! If I recall correctly, Emma actually has a fear of water... But is she sinking downwards or floating upwards?

3. Cortana! I particularly like how Cortana, Emma's sword, is featured on this cover. It a) speaks of Emma's badass nature b) lets us know that Cortana is special, and probably will be important in the book :)

4. The shafts of light from the sky above at the top of the cover... It just drags your eyes up, doesn't it? So cool!

5. Not completely related, but the only slight question I have...Emma's in a dress, and yes, it's gorgeous, but isn't she supposed to be super badass? I'm just hoping people who haven't read the series before won't write her off as some damsel in distress with a random sword, because she is far from being that!


But overall, I am very pleased with this cover! It has an...alluring element to it, and I absolutely cannot wait for me to get my hands on it! This book is slated to be released March 8th, 2016, so look for it then!


Here's the blurb:

Los Angeles. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to to discovering exactly what it was that killed her parents and getting her revenge.


Raised in the Los Angeles Institute with the Blackthorn family, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian Blackthorn. A series of murders in the city catch her attention — they seem to have the same characteristics as the deaths of her parents. Could the murderer be the same person? And her attention isn’t the only one caught: someone has been murdering Downworlders as well. The Fair Folk make a deal with the Institute: if the Blackthorns and Emma will investigate the killings, they’ll return Mark Blackthorn to his home. The catch: they have only two weeks to find the killers. Otherwise it’s open war between faeries and Nephilim.


The Shadowhunters of the Institute must race against time to catch the killers, even as they begin to suspect the involvement of those closest to them. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with the one person in the world she’s absolutely forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.

  2. I wasn't sure I'm going to read this book, because I really loved TID and had a love-hate relationship with TMI. And I also feel like I've read too much shadowhunter books. But after seeing the cover and the blurb I knew I have to read it! I think it's officially my most anticipated release of 2016!

    1. Agreed! I think I liked TID more than TMI. I was a bit unsure of what the cover would look like since they recently all got new covers, but I'm loving this one!
