Warlock Magnus Bane and his new beau, Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood, are in need of a romantic Parisian getaway following the Mortal War. But when an old friend appears warning Magnus of a rumor that he is the founder and leader of a fast-growing demon-worshiping cult, he and Alec are forced to sidetrack from their vacation to shut down the cult themselves, before other Shadowhunters catch wind and punish Magnus—with death—for his alleged involvement. It's hard to get more star-crossed than demon-spawn and angel-spawn, immortal and mortal, but this is Clare in her element, and Chu (Time Siege, 2016) brings his deft hand at writing thrilling action and combat as Clare's newest coauthor. This first installment in a new trilogy builds on characters, plot, and world building from previous books in the Shadowhunter universe, and new readers may feel lost jumping in here, despite a few pages of forced exposition at the novel's opening. Clare's ravenous fans will no doubt be pleased with this often sexy, self-indulgent European adventure that fills in gaps left open in City of Fallen Angels (2015). Grades 9-12.

Hedonistic High Warlock Magnus Bane is vacationing with his boyfriend, demon-slaying Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood, in Paris when Magnus's friend Tessa delivers bad news. A cult called the Crimson Hand is sacrificing faeries to raise a Prince of Hell who will unleash anarchy in the Shadow World, and Magnus is rumored to be their leader. Magnus concedes that he may have founded the organization as a drunken joke—the memory seems to be missing—but he adamantly denies any current involvement. The warlocks' governing council won't punish Magnus if he fixes the problem himself, so he and Alec team up with disgruntled former Crimson Hand member Shinyun Jung to find and disband the group. Vicious demons and suspicious Shadowhunters plague their trek across Europe, endangering their lives and testing Magnus and Alec's new relationship. Clare (the Mortal Instruments books) collaborates with Chu (the Tao series) on this swashbuckling launch to the Eldest Curses series, set in Clare's ever-expanding Shadowhunter universe. Magnus and Alec's swoon-worthy romance explores the transformative power of love, while abundant action drives the tale to a harrowing finish. Ages 14–up. (Apr.)
