Cast Long Shadows (Ghosts of the Shadow Market, #2) by Cassandra Clare

Cast Long Shadows (Ghosts of the Shadow Market, #2)

Matthew Fairchild is the Consul’s son and the golden-haired boy of the Nephilim. He has the love of his family and his parabatai James Herondale, and nothing to wish for, except excitement and artistry and beauty that do not seem to fit in with a warrior’s way of life. Matthew gets more than he bargained for at the Shadow Market, where he commits the greatest sin of his life—something he can never tell his parabatai, or any of the honorable...

    4.5 Stars! I really enjoyed this novella. I've mentioned before that I sometimes don't enjoy Cassie Clare novellas as much as full novels, but I really loved this one!CW: (view spoiler)[ miscarriage (hide spoiler)] I don't typically hide content warnings because I believe they should be easy to access for those who need them, but I feel this one is particularly spoilery and people should be able to choose whether or not they want to see it.I felt...

    7/03/2018Me, trying to remember all the family trees and relationships:Me, when all of these series will finally be over, remembering how I first took "City of Bones" in my hands...9/05/2018Matthew, das gay!!ha, i KNEW i won't be able to remember all Herondale-Lightwood-Fairchild-Carstairs lineage. But I had a feeling this was feelsy, u feel me? Like, if I'd reread Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy I could give this higher rating because I woul...

    I’m so going to love The Last Hours

    3.5 Stars Maybe?"I watched a secret almost destroy a man once, the finest man ever made. Such a secret is like keeping treasure in a tomb. Little by little, poison eats away at the gold. By the time the door is opened, there may be nothing left but dust."I'm not going to lie, this isn't my favourite Cassandra Clare short story, I think especially afterSon of the Dawn was so well done for such a short story. This time around not so much. Everyone ...
  • Annie ☆{of Lightwoods and Herondales}☆
    You know, sometimes, with Cassie's books whether they are big or small, you just need a moment to let everything sink in. To give your heart a break after seeing people you love so well and that you miss so much. To put your mind at ease after being teased for something that won't be here for quite some time. To slow your breathing. And to just return to reality. Cause you know, sometimes living in Cassie's worlds is just simply better and nothin...

    I couldn't help myself and bought the ebook.... And I don't regret it! I just love all of these characters! :) But I have to admit, I was kind of confused at the start about who was who's child and stuff, but I think I got it now XD Now we have to wait for another month... :P

    *Spoilers ahead*4.5*Things I loved:-Matthew Fairchild is the most precious thing-His love for his father is so cute-“Has no kind soul thought to inform you that your hairstyle is, to use the gentlest words available to me, ill-advised? A friend? Your papa? Does nobody care enough to prevent you from making a spectacle of yourself? Or are you simply too busy perpetrating acts of evil upon the innocent to bother about your unfortunate appearance?...

    "Nadie sabía mejor que Jem que alguien podía no ser completamente conocido y aun así ser completamente amado. Perdido en todos sus pecados y querido en la oscuridad. James no permitiría que su parabatai anduviera solo por caminos oscuros."
  • Cassandra {semi-hiatus}
    "Is that why you insist on carrying about enormous tomes everywhere you go, that you might visit violence upon innocent persons? Done to death by my best friend - my heart's brother - my own dear parabatai-" I'm going to get this out of the way early: I went into this much more hesitant than the other short stories in the past. This is setting up for the fourth Shadowhunters series and I'm beginning to worry that I'm going to fall out of love wit...
  • Suzanne
    There is just something about Jem & Will together on a page that just does me in! Loved reading about Matthew (and of course James). The shadow market is not a good place for Matthew we learn very early (as early as possible in a short story lol). Still a good fix on some of the characters we love from these Shadowhunter series. My quick and simple overall: quick, enjoyable little read.
  • Samhita Peechara {Multi Dreamer}⚔
    A secret too long kept can kill a soul by inches. I watched a secret almost destroy a man once, the finest man ever made. Such a secret is like keeping treasure in a tomb. Little by little, poison eats away at the gold. By the time the door is opened, there may be nothing left but dust. 4/5⭐I'm so happy to be able to read about some of my favorite characters again. Also I'm really intrigued by Matthew Fairchild's personality so I can't wait to...

    5/10/18OKAY. OKAY. SO THIS BOOK BROKE ME. I CRIED SO MUCH! IloveMatthewsomuch.I don't think anyone can understand, but like I don't understand how I can love a character so much after only 2 novellas. I do not condone Matthew's actions in any way, but at the same time I completely understand what he did. I ship him so much with Lucie, there friendship is so sweet and nice AND I REALLY HOPE IT BECOMES A FRIENDS TO LOVERS TROPE!Also the ending Hero...

    Oh poor Matthew 😭
  • Ana
    All those TID feels rushing back! Oh, my heart… “How far? asked Jem.Will smiled. ‘Need you ask? I will go with you as far as I possibly may.’”Matthew Fairchild, with his cheerful, dramatic personality, was a great introduction to The Last Hours. The friendship between James and Matthew is just too precious. However, the entire incident with Henry and Charlotte… my heart broke for them, especially for Charlotte… And for Matthew, too,...
  • Dulce María
    Siento como si estuviera super spoileada de The Las Hours y aun no ha salido.SPOILERS -Pensaba caminar contigo, mi parabatai.¿Cuán lejos? pregunto Jem.Will sonrió. -¿Necesitas preguntar? Iré contigo lo más lejos posible. No me esperaba este dolor, me esperaba el llegar a sufrir por Jem, Will o Tessa, pero jamas me imagine el estar sufriendo por Matthew Fairchild.Es horrible ver como se deja llevar por las mentiras de Alastair, y llega a des...

    You know I CANNOT handle Jem/Will scenes! Gahhhh. I really need to reread TID... getting excited for TLH!
  • saskia
    Cast Long Shadows is ten times better than Son of the Dawn holy crap I am crying. This particular novella informs us that Jem is looking for something that has some connection to Tessa and it also sheds light on Matthew Fairchild as a 15-year-old, very dramatic in character with a wholesome love for his father: a key theme explored in this short story.From this novella we can perhaps infer that what happened to Charlotte, the secret Matthew ho...
  • Julia Sapphire
    3.5 stars
  • Iris
    SO GOOD!!! These novellas are all INCREDIBLY PAINFUL, and I love it, and AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!I fell in love with Matthew. He was such a lovely character, and I loved seeing how he went from this sweet innocent child to someone who was so hurt (I know, I'm mean.) (Honestly that just sounds super wrong, and not really like what I'm even trying to say, but... You probably know what I mean...).He was wonderful, and I hope we get to see more of him in futu...
  • Maria
    4.5.*Spoilers for TID*OMG, it was so sad. My heart broke for Poor Matthew, Charlotte and Henry.But to read about Will and Jem... together... again... was amazing. I can't wait for the TLH!
  • Carmen (Oh, the Book Feels!) Seda
    I just love these characters so much.
  • Lauren
    I was NOT expecting that to be Matthew's sin. How to unread something? Put it back I don't want it. I will protect this boy with my life. And I'm slightly more excited for TLH but not that much. Maybe the next novella will also help with that. I do admit some of the characters I had no idea who they were because I don't know much about the TLH crew, especially the non-mains.
  • Clara
    4.5 stars. I am so ready for the Last Hours series.
  • Jiya ✾
    Will and Jem😭😭😭😭
  • hamna
    my heart is shattered what the FUCK cassie
  • Nadine
    Pretty boring. Maybe I would have liked it more if I could have remembered who most of the characters were. These short stories are usually hit or miss and this one was definitely a miss, so I think I’ll just wait until the print version is published.
  • fairylightsandbooks ( Aino )
    This novella was so much fun! I love seeing the fairchilds of the past and obviously my faves the Herondales. Mathew must be protected!!! All of these characters mean so much to me I cant explain it!It was cassie clare obviously I loved it and I cant wait for the next one its going to be painful
  • Masha
    I absolutely loved this story. I adore Matthew so much, and in some ways he reminds me a lot of both Will and Jace. The interaction between all of the characters is amazing, and I just loved seeing Henry and Charlotte again, how (view spoiler)[ he crawled toward Charlotte when she passed out, it was so beautiful, because Cassandra is always making us doubt how much the two really love each other, and than moments like this make me realise tha...
