James Marsters to Narrate Lord of Shadows Audiobook / Mundane Monday #Shadowhunters

Happy Mundane Monday Shadowhunters! Most of you have heard the exciting news about the LOS audiobook. Just in case you haven't, EW announced that James Marsters will be narrating the audio book for Lord of Shadows by Casandra Clare! We're so excited about this news. James, best known as Spike from 'Buffy, The Vampire Slayer', joins the ranks of other beloved celebrities who've also narrated other Shadowhunters books like; Ed Westwick, Molly C. Quinn, Jason Dohring, Sophie Turner, Daniel Sharman, to name a few, and most recently, Sam Heughan (Outlander). We have to say, we've been really lucky with our amazing list of narrator for Cassie's audiobooks. 

Check out what EW had to had to say about this news:

It’s a meeting of supernatural royalty: James Marsters, best known for his role as Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has been cast to narrate Cassandra Clare’s next audiobook, EW can announce exclusively. Marsters will perform Lord of Shadows, a Shadowhunters novel.

Cassie had this to say:

“One of my biggest inspirations for creating the Shadowhunters was always classic urban fantasy like Buffy,” Clare tells EW, “and it’s an honor and a bit of a trip to have my favorite character, Spike, read Lord of Shadows.”

“One of the things I always loved about James’ Spike was his voice — how much fun he had playing up different accents and ways of speaking. I can’t wait to hear that at play in Lord of Shadows where he’ll get to move between accents in LA and accents in London!”


Sunny Los Angeles can be a dark place indeed in Cassandra Clare’s Lord of Shadows, the sequel to the #1New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Lady MidnightLord of Shadows is a Shadowhunters novel.

Emma Carstairs has finally avenged her parents. She thought she’d be at peace. But she is anything but calm. Torn between her desire for her parabatai Julian and her desire to protect him from the brutal consequences of parabatai relationships, she has begun dating his brother, Mark. But Mark has spent the past five years trapped in Faerie; can he ever truly be a Shadowhunter again?

And the faerie courts are not silent. The Unseelie King is tired of the Cold Peace, and will no longer concede to the Shadowhunters’ demands. Caught between the demands of faerie and the laws of the Clave, Emma, Julian, and Mark must find a way to come together to defend everything they hold dear—before it’s too late.

Lord of Shadows will be released on May 23rd, 2017.
