From #1 New York Times bestselling authors Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu comes the second book in the Eldest Curses series and a thrilling new adventure for High Warlock Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood, for whom a death-defying mission into the heart of evil is not just a job, it’s also a romantic getaway. The Lost Book of the White is a Shadowhunters novel.

Life is good for Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood. They’re living together in a fabulous loft, their warlock son, Max, has started learning to walk, and the streets of New York are peaceful and quiet—as peaceful and quiet as they ever are, anyway.

Until the night that two old acquaintances break into Magnus’s apartment and steal the powerful Book of the White. Now Magnus and Alec will have to drop everything to get it back. They need to follow the thieves to Shanghai, they need to call some backup to accompany them, and they need a babysitter.

Also, someone has stabbed Magnus with a strange magical weapon and the wound is glowing, so they have that to worry about too.

Fortunately, their backup consists of Clary, Jace, Isabelle, and newly minted Shadowhunter Simon. In Shanghai, they learn that a much darker threat awaits them. Magnus’s magic is growing unstable, and if they can’t stop the demons flooding into the city, they might have to follow them all the way back to the source—to the very realm of the dead. Can they stop the threat to the world? Will they make it back home before their kid completely wears out Alec’s mom?

The Lost Book of the White, the second book in the Eldest Curses series by Cassandra Clare, was one of my most anticipated reads for 2020! Cassandra is one of my most favorite authors, so I am always up for reading something new by her, and this year, we got TWO books! Chain of Gold was fantastic and left me wanting more, and so did The Lost Book of the White!

As I mentioned above, The Lost Book of the White is the sequel to The Red Scrolls of Magic, which is Magnus and Alec’s story. Let me just say that I loved pretty much everything about this book. Magnus and Alec are adorable, and I love getting to see them together as a family. They are both such great parents, and it’s so fun getting to see them in more adult roles. I also really, really love getting to see the characters from the previous books also. It’s so fun to catch up and see them grow as well!

I also really love the setting and storyline for the book. The storyline picks up where Red Scrolls leaves off, and follows along the same lines. The setting of the book is awesome. I LOVE being back in the Shadowhunter world! Also, some of the places they visited in the story sounded fantastic. I want to go there!

And one more thing… I opted to listen to the audio for this book, since that is what I did for Red Scrolls, and I’m so glad I did! The story is once again narrated by DB Wong, who has such a fantastic storytelling voice! I could listen to him all day long… which I basically did! I hope he’s the narrator for book 3 as well.

Overall; though I kept this review short and sweet, I am guessing that if you read this far you can totally tell how much I loved The Lost Book of the White. It was just what I needed to read at the moment, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book, The Black Volume of the Dead, when it’s released next year!
