After Simon is kidnapped by faeries (why is he always kidnapped?), he uncovers rumors of a secret weapon Sebastian left behind for the faerie queen. He must escape the Fey, relying on his only ally, former Shadowhunter and Dark Artifices character Mark Blackthorn.
“Every night, no matter what has happened during the day, no matter if I am torn and bloodied or so bone-tired I wish I were dead, I look up at the stars and I give each star a brother’s name or a sister’s face. I will not sleep until I remember every one. The stars will burn out before I forget.”

“I am no faerie,” said the boy with eerie eyes, pointed ears, and leaves in his wild hair. “I am Mark Blackthorn of the Los Angeles Institute. It doesn’t matter what they say or what they do to me. I still remember who I am. I am Mark Blackthorn.”
I gotta admit. This was boring. Even though I was curious to see what happened to poor Mark, it was still uneventful and yawn worthy. My heart did not bleed for him. Maybe there’s something wrong with me? I don’t know. It just wasn’t good enough.
Not to mention, the synopsis was slightly misleading. What secret weapon? What escape? It was all so predictable. I really didn’t enjoy it. And I reallllly tried!
I’ve been told that this was meant as a set up for Lady Midnight. We’ll have to see, since I haven’t read that book yet.
If you are as curious as I was regarding the whereabouts of poor Mark, then do read this. There’s nothing wrong with satisfying ones curiosity. Then come back here and share your thoughts! ^^
Until Next Time!
