The author, Liv Spencer, was so, so generous to treat us to a copy of the book so we can review it and also give one lucky fan a book to read as well!!! The contest is open to residents of North and South America and Europe ages 14 and over. The giveaway is open now through midnight, Sunday July 21th and will be announced. I jumped to the back and saw the mention of the ladies who went to set and fangirled at the mention of the ladies who went to set. I was like, "That's me...... Asdffghgdghsfjjkgfl!" I'm still reading so I will post my review soon.
Here is an overview of this very thorough guide! The book is an exploration as well as a literary celebration of the fascinating young adult fantasy series, this companion guide takes readers deep into the rich universe of Cassandra Clare’s New York Times–bestselling Shadowhunter Chronicles franchise. With intelligent yet accessible dissections of each volume of both the Mortal Instruments series and the Infernal Devices series, Liv Spencer delivers the next best thing to a Shadowhunter’s codex with commentary on the books as well as their references to folklore, legends, and literature. The guide also recounts Cassandra Clare’s publishing story, from journalist and fan fiction writer to bestselling author; explores the cast and crew who brought the first book to life in the film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, premiering in August 2013; and delves into the franchise’s fans, a passionate community that is anything but mundane. From the Clave to Chairman Meow and demon pox to dastardly ducks, Navigating the Shadow World is both an insightful introduction to the world of Cassandra Clare and a satisfying companion book for fans.
