A Deeper Love is the fifth short story in Ghosts of the Shadow Market: An Anthology of Tales, co-written by Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson. In the print edition which follows the stories' chronological order, it is the fourth story.


It is only three years since Tessa Gray lost her beloved husband William Herondale, and she is searching for a reason to live, trying to find the path of being a warlock with the guidance of her friend Catarina Loss. World War 2 rains down destruction on their world, and Tessa and Catarina become nurses who make bargains at the Shadow Market for enchantments to help suffering mundanes. But can Brother Zachariah bear to see the woman he loves risk her life, or might he consider breaking sacred vows to save her from loneliness?[1][2][3]
