Summary
From #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Cassandra Clare comes the first novel in a brand-new trilogy where evil hides in plain sight and love cuts deeper than any blade. Chain of Gold is a Shadowhunters novel.

Cordelia Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, a warrior trained since childhood to battle demons. When her father is accused of a terrible crime, she and her brother travel to London in hopes of preventing the family's ruin. Cordelia's mother wants to marry her off, but Cordelia is determined to be a hero rather than a bride. Soon Cordelia encounters childhood friends James and Lucie Herondale and is drawn into their world of glittering ballrooms, secret assignations, and supernatural salons, where vampires and warlocks mingle with mermaids and magicians. All the while, she must hide her secret love for James, who is sworn to marry someone else.

But Cordelia's new life is blown apart when a shocking series of demon attacks devastate London. These monsters are nothing like those Shadowhunters have fought before--these demons walk in daylight, strike down the unwary with incurable poison, and seem impossible to kill. London is immediately quarantined. Trapped in the city, Cordelia and her friends discover that their own connection to a dark legacy has gifted them with incredible powers--and forced a brutal choice that will reveal the true cruel price of being a hero.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Following the events of 2013's Clockwork Princess, a peculiar absence of demons lent the London Shadowhunters a few years of relative peace, making them sorely unprepared for the sudden series of demon attacks that devastate their numbers. Cordelia Carstairs finds herself at the center of a mystery that's inexplicably tied to her friends James and Lucie Herondale. Working alongside London's young Shadowhunters and hoping to uphold the heroic legacy of their parents, the group seeks to uncover the dark force behind the attacks. YA fantasy powerhouse Clare returns with a new generation of Shadowhunters, once again taking on themes of love, friendship, and family to deliver a thrilling story that's nostalgic for longtime fans but accessible for new readers, with nearly 600 pages to get accustomed to the large cast of characters and immersive world. While the new cast includes more diverse characters--mixed race and queer--they have a concerning tendency to be the most flawed. Still, Clare manages again to introduce memorable heroes that readers are sure to love, ending with a tantalizing promise of further action.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A new series set in Clare's familiar Shadowhunters universe means a surge of interest from fans old and new. Stock up."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "When Cordelia Carstairs's father is arrested in 1903, her mother attempts to salvage the family's reputation by moving them to London and encouraging 16-year-old Cordelia to find an influential suitor. Cordelia, however, prefers to focus her efforts on helping fellow Shadowhunters James and Lucie Herondale slay the vicious, seemingly unstoppable demons that recently began killing their Nephilim brethren. If, while saving the day, Cordelia can woo James--on whom she's had a crush since childhood--all the better. Although Cordelia and James have chemistry, and James's friends and family all adore Cordelia, he is strangely infatuated with Grace Blackthorn, who just arrived in town and whose mother despises the Herondales. Spun off from her Infernal Devices trilogy, book one of Clare's Last Hours trilogy uses a large cast of deftly drawn characters of varying ethnicities, sexual orientations, and species (vampires, warlocks, etc.) to explore the intricacies of friendship and love. Although setup and backstory mire the tale's start, Clare delivers a richly imagined fantasy rife with action, intrigue, and smoldering romance. A chilling cliffhanger sets up the sequel. Ages 14--up. Agent: Russell Galen, Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary. (Mar.)"
