Cassandra Clare ´ 3 download

The Mortal War is over and sixteen year old Clary Fray is back home in New York excited about all the possibilities before her She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her uniue power Her mother is getting married to the love of her life Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last And mo As human society evolves so do its methods of tortureLet me start off this review with a small confession I liked The Mortal Instruments Yes it was cheesy it was derivative and it was an embarrassment to good literature everywhere but it gave me a couple of afternoons’ worth of guilty pleasure and I was satisfied I enjoyed the fast paced action and the triumph of true love and I was happy to leave Jace and Clary to enjoy the fruits of their labour in happily ever after land But then Mammon beckoned and Cassandra Clare fell into the trap Not content with the adulation of her millions of teenyboppers and wannabe teenyboppers like me she decided to flog a dead horse In addition to her derivation of a derivative series The Infernal Devices she decided to revive Jace and Clary from their life of teenage bliss and torture them — and her readers — all over againUnfortunately she forgot some key elements in her rush to milk the cash cow Elements that most readers tend to look for in their books Minor things like plot characterization and heart Let me be honest here CoFA is the worst excuse for a novel I have ever read It is a waste of time money and paper Even as I turned each page I could hear the groan of a million trees that gave up their lives to fulfill one person’s fathomless desire for fame and money Cassandra Clare says that she often gets asked where she derives the “inspiration” for her books Thus far she has kept that answer a closely guarded secret but the truth WILL out ladies and gentlemen So here without further ado is the inspiration for The Mortal Instruments The writing in this book is like the dry rattle of a dying man’s throat The slow crawl towards a climax is like watching the continental drift The endless descriptions of what every person is wearing is like being forced to trawl through a random stranger’s vacation photos The unbelievable level of teenage angst in this book is like the ‘Dear Diary’ scrawls of a twelve year old The ridiculousness of calling this a ‘novel’ and selling it for 11 is like like sorry I can’t think of anything — obviously I don’t have Clare’s talent for overblown similes So let’s see what the ‘plot’ in this book is about Okay Simon’s a vampire but he’s still trying to pretend to be a normal boy He’s turned into a playa and is juggling two hot women at the same time Then he gets accosted by a really old vampire who wants him to help her take over the Manhattan clan But that’s not important because we never come back to that story Moving on Clary and Jace are supposed to be training but mostly they’re making out One such session gets interrupted by Isabelle who tells them that a dead Shadowhunter has been found somewhere in the city But let’s not worry about that either it’s not very important What’s important is that Jace is having some really disturbing nightmares in which he ends up hurtingkilling Clary So he decides that he’ll talk to his mom about it His mom suggests therapy and Jace finds a therapist who advises him to talk to Clary about his disturbed emotional state Clary having been told the whole story begins to suspect that Jace may not be mentally disturbed at all but the victim of a demonic attack She takes him to the Silent Brothers who work their silent mojo and together Jace and Clary investigate the dead Shadowhunters find the culprit vanuish himher and save the ShadowhuntersOh wait embarrassed silence Umm actually that’s not how it goesWhat actually happens is that Jace because of this nightmare decides that he will distance himself from Clary whinge about their relationship endlessly run away every time he so much as spots her in the distance and mope miserably But don’t worry He’s not really breaking up with her or anything He’s just nobly making her miserable and refusing to tell her why he’s avoiding her But every once in a while his hormones emotions get the better of him and he just tosses her up against an alley wall and plays out some abstinence pornIn the meantime Simon the playa gets kicked out of his home and works some mind mojo on his mother to make her forget that she has discovered his secret life as a vampire He feels miserable and guilty about this but again not to worry it’s only for about two pages After that he just walks around town being targeted by sweatsuit ed assassins and checking out the long thick eyelashes of the guy who comes to audition for his band and feeding Jace tomato soup and mangoes and watching him sleep AwwwThen there are random snippets about dead babies and dead Shadowhunters and the faerie ueen psyching out Clary about how she might lose Jace and some moving heart rending conversations about Shadowhunter weddings and assassins in sweatsuitsBut what about the super cool super adorable Magnus you ask?

City of Fallen Angels

St importantly of all she can finally call Jace her boyfriendBut nothing comes without a priceSomeone is murdering Shadowhunters provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second bloody war Clary’s best friend Simon can’t help her his mother just found out that he’s I ahh think that II don’t knowI literally just finished this book and I’m at a loss of words to describe it Was it brilliant? Yes Was it fantastic? Yes Was it worth the wait? Yes yes yeslord yes I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book an entire lifetime Yes that may seem weird but that’s how I feel There have been waits for books that I thought would kill me Richelle Mead's Last Sacrifice being a big one but none like this I was happy and satisfied when City of Glass ended but learning that Clare decided to write books was just the icing on the cake It’s been a while between books but this was or less everything I expected and It was different and yet completely the same There’s no way to pretend that the characters haven’t changed that they’re not different and that everything that went into the storyline and plot of the first 3 books hasn’t changed That chapter of the series is over and a new dawn has emerged yes cheesy I know but sue me The characters were still the amazing incredible people that stole my heart throughout the first 3 books and being with them again was a lot like coming home from a long trip I must say I thought Jordan was an awesome inclusion I always thought Maia’s ex was a real jerk but he’s nothing like I thought or expected and I love that I will admit that I did miss seeing of Clary and Jace They’re still my fave everything of this series fave characters fave couple but I still loved the book regardless It was so strange getting such an in depth look into Simon and following him the most Obviously the books have always changed POV’s jumping back and forth but it’s always been fixed mostly on Clary whereas this time it was Simon than anything else And yet I didn’t have a problem with thatI love Simon always have and even though I never wanted him to be the one Clary ended up with I still wanted the best for him He’s still the same great Simon he’s always been but he’s slightly different too I think he’s got a long way to go and there’s a lot of growth that I think will happen to him I can’t wait to see thoughIt’s odd when the last book ended if anyone had asked me I’d have been one of the few people who actually said they wanted Maia to be with Simon but after this book it’s plain to see that Izzy is the one that for him Perhaps I’m late to the party but it always seemed to me that she was a bit much for him and even though I love her heart and soul I didn’t believe she was right for him I honestly thought that Maia and he would have made a better couple but after this book I’ll never think that way again Perhaps it was Jordan coming into the storyline and seeing how he and Maia wereare but I finally looked and realised that Simon and Isabelle really have something There’s so much to Izzy than we’ve seen and I think that Simon may actually break through her defences and worm his way into her heart if she lets himOh and it goes without saying that I want Maia and Jordan back together too Hello? Weren’t they just perfect together? The issues they have and Maia wanting to rip him to shreds aside I was sad to see so many issues for Clary and Jace in this book but I can’t say I was surprised either I knew Cassandra Clare wouldn’t just let them be It seems like they’ve been through so much but of course it’s not the end for them no sir ee There are problems facing them and new struggles but I don’t doubt for a second that they can get through itsomehow That’s not to say that I didn’t love every single moment they were together because I did I absolutely did The moments between Clary and Jace were electric Every time they’re together every kiss every time they touch things just sizzle I’ve loved a lot of book couples over time but none compared to them They’re like no other You can’t deny that they’re made for one another you can’t miss the chemistry they have It’s truly impossible not to see and feel They just go together so well they both make each other better Jace makes Clary stronger and she’s his whole world She means he world to him and it makes me giggly inside Yeah yeah yeahI went there D This book was perfectly paced and the ending was a heart stopping roller coaster ride So much happened and I was on the edge of my seat wanting to see how Simon Jace and Clary would get out of things I couldn’t believe that Lilith was trying to bring Sebastian back There’s no one who deserves to stay dead than himwell perhaps expect Valentine The ending of this book was jaw dropping I Could Not Believe It Still can’t if I’m honest here I cannot believe that Sebastian is alive again and what he’s done to Jace It’s shocking it’s exciting it’s heart breaking it’s everything I didn’t want but at the same time I CANNOT wait to see what’s going to happen next The next book is going to be a showstopper I can so tell—and I can’t wait to see what happens now Can Clary and everyone else manage to free Jace from Sebastian? Can they defeat Sebastian? Just what does this mean now?God I NEEEEEED the next book like stat Seriously this series is just brilliant and I can’t wait for the next instalment Bring on the awesome

free read City of Fallen Angels

A vampire and now he’s homeless When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves Even Ja Wow there's four days of my life spent reading this book that I'll never get back And it normally doesn't take me that long but I had to self motivate myself with promises of chocolate If you just read one page just to get through itI usually don't give too many books only 1 star In fact there is only one book I can think of that angered me this much and that was The Vampire Diaries The Return I only got 50 pages deep into it before I flung it across the room So I am very proud that I was able to finish this POS to write a review There is NO reason this book should have a higher rating than Mockingjay a few Harry Potter books and The Pride and the Predjudice NO REASONAfter all of that I have one uestion for Cassandra Clare Was this some sort of sick April fool's joke? Why was this even published?Now before the fangirls come out to defend their master let me explainI actually liked the original 3 books I wouldn't say I loved them or call them literary masterpieces but I did find them entertaining City of Endless Angst City of Fallen Angels picks up 2 months after City of Glass left off One would think the conflict between Jace and Clary was over but no CC has the nerve to regress her characters And there lies my biggest problem with the book WHERE WAS THE PLOT? While everyone was busy fawning over each other Shadowhunters are being murdered But alas no one gives a shit How would I describe our characters in CoFA you ask? Well a picture is worth a thousand wordsDracoJace Bordered between and Wangsty teen and a cocky prick And yes kids he actually says he is better than everyoneClary He loves me He loves me notSimonI really liked him in the orignial trilogy I found him funny Sadly he was boring He wandered around this book with not a clue what was going on Alec and Magnussigh They didn't even show up until half the book was over And when they did all they did is bitch about Magnus' past sex life Yes and angst The gang is supposed to be investigating the murders of the shadowhunters but there isn't much investigating going on Instead they are too busy ignoring each other going to Simon's band gigs and ripping each other's clothes off in an alley Speaking of Simon he is apparently dating Isabelle and Maia at the same time Yet he doesn't know how it happened Ya Simon we already established that you are confused What's driving Jace and Clary apart? Well Jace starts having these nightmares where just as he and Clary are ripping away their clothes he kills her He decides to ignore her so as not to hurt her Why Clare why? Why did you have to play the I love you can't you see it's killing me? card? Stephenie Meyer already cashed in on that lotto ticket amoungst other recent pathetic YA novels To top it off we have evil minions in gray track suits and sneakers and a badass villain killed in the most shitty ending I have ever read And that cliffhanger Not everyone who dies has to come back to life Clare I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Valentine makes an appearance in the next two books Clare is also very inconsistent with her storyline When Kyle is first introduced to us he has black hair However two pages later he has brown hair Jace doesn't believe in God yet has the most angel blood in him that anyone else The Pepsi sign is blue and red not Coca Cola Jace doesn't understand any of the pop culture references Simon uotes but Jace spews Shakespeare lines off like its second nature Seriously why didn't the editors catch this? Does my review seem like it's all over the place? Well good cause that's exactly how this book was ALLOVERTHEDAMNPLACEA few days ago Clare posted a FA about the book and ending She is basically validating why she Almighty Author is a genius and you lowly reader are an idiot You can read it here if you haven't already you know what I have to say to her little condescending FA? Cassandra Clare I'm calling you out on the bull shit It's time to stop riding JK Rowling's cash cow Get off the ride is over More reviews and at Cuddlebuggery Book Blog

    full video review discussion can be found here 35 I enjoyed this but it just didn't wow me I also think it struggled finding it's footing after an epic book like city of glass but I do realize that I should consider this last portion of the series to be it's own trilogy since that's what Cassandra Clare originally had in mind I'm glad that I decided to re read this before continuing on with the series because I remembered basically nothing from this book and there is a huge reveal at the end that I'm than sure will be an important plot line in the last two books

    I realized something while being completely immersed in this seuel I’ve been a bad bad reader in the past toward this series Not only because I’ve postponed reading this book in my defence I really had to finish Clockwork Angel first so I can actually know who ‘Camille’ is but also for another reason entirely I didn’t care I didn’t care enough about the characters before Alec Magnus excluded I didn’t even try to I mean I liked them enough but Alec Magnus were the ones I kept focusing on in every single chapter and when they weren’t around I was still thinking about them and processing and replaying in my mind what I’ve just learned regarding them Or felt Craving for the next scene I’ll see the lovely couple in was never something new to me And that’s I think not right Being my favorite series ever I should have paid attention to the other characters too Because they’re great This is the only The Mortal Instruments book in which I didn’t miss doing that and discovered some new ualities and endearing information on the characters I’ve known of before such as Simon especially him Jace and Isabelle Clary is the heroine so there barely is any – if none at all – secret she’s keeping that we don’t know about but I did feel closer to her in this one tooThat was my dirty little secret heh Oh well I guess I’ll have to re read book 1 2 3 for a third time C’est dommage wink wink This book was actually fun strangely It felt like an ‘in between’ written story than a seuel itself It’s like the author wanted to take some time off the actual immense and complex plot and focus really on the relationship between the characters For instance Clary Jace Simon Maia Isabelle you go man Jocelyn Luke Alec Magnus etc And I loved this book for it Of course there was some actual action and mystery too but I do admit it being slower than the two previous ones However it being different didn’t make it disappointing at all This book like I mentioned helped me connect with the cast and I’m grateful for it since I will probably love the next two books to the moon and back because of it and not just really really love themI don’t think I ever realized how sweet and funny Simon actually is Sarcastic uite in fact but a good kind of sarcastic And Jacehe appeared vulnerable in this It was pleasant to see for once how much he loves Clary and being given proof for it Or perhaps it is that this made me believe in their relationship even And Clary well as always she can be naïve and give her trust too uickly But all that made a great melange and brought a nice atmosphereMagnus is so cute Awe moment He touched her cheek It was colder than the floor had been ‘‘You could give me the past’’ he said a little sadly ‘‘But Alec is my future’’ Woah Magnus Bane can be romantic Too bad Alec didn't hearor did he? grinsA must read I have seen many being disappointed by this seuel but still don’t hesitate if you’re a fan of the seriesSources Clary Jace Luke Jocelyn Alec Magnus Simon Isabelle

    The plot of City of Fallen Angels by pennenickel Official review posted April 14 2011An Open Letter to Cassandra ClareDear Ms ClareYou're not Joss Whedon You'll never be Joss Whedon andor JK Rowling so do yourself and everyone else a favor stop trying Yours Truly Someone Who Deserves Their Money Back AKA Everyone Who Bought a Copy of City of Fallen AngelsPS What were you thinking?PPS No seriously what were you thinking when you decided to revive this series? Were you thinking at all? Fair uestion given the circumstances Why couldn't you just leave well enough alone? Are you controlled by greed? Just curiousPPPS I hope you enjoy swimming in your money bin filled with all that ill gotten wealth The first thing I did upon finishing City of Fallen Angels HeaddeskI know what you're thinking You're thinking that I brought this misery upon myself To that I say I agree with you wholeheartedly You're probably also wondering why I expected a different outcome then the one I got I've spent the morning wondering that exact same thing So far I've come up with a handful of explanations none of which are backed with much reason SECRET SHAME ALERT What can I say? I'm that person You know that pathetic moron who spends way too much time and energy believing in other people even the ones who've done nothing but let me down in the past In my defense I love seeing people live up to their potentialYes I actually believe Cassandra Clare has potential Now over half my friends and followers have lost all respect for me Or at least I did feel that way until I picked up this book Now I don't know exactly how I feel about her Before anyone unfriends me please lemme 'splainThere are brief moments between all the stolen storylines ill conceived plotting melodrama and so forth in which I'm able to see that Cassandra Clare does have something uniue and interesting to bring to the table Even a few moments of dare I say complete brilliance that had Ms Clare expanded on could have gone somewhere great Unfortunately I don't think Ms Clare knows that about herself so she spends most of her time lifting ideas from other people's work pasting it together and trying to pass it off as her own Either that or she really wishes she was Joss Whedon And really who could blame her? I wanna be Joss Whedon too that way I could know all the ins and outs of the Firefly universe but I digress She failed at channeling Joss Whedon's brilliance though it is evident that she tried Long story short this book was like a slap in the face given to me by none other then a very smug Cassandra Clare Serves me right for being dumb enough to believe in her amirite? In depth review to come Initial reaction to the new cover to this book Can I just say how irritated I am that Clary and Jace are pretty much front and center in this book? Clary is even on the freaking cover I thought this story was going to focus on Simon so what's with the return of The Jace Clary uasi Incest Show? I just don't care about them any and I desperately wish they'd just go away Forever I know I'm going to read this only to wish I hadn't Why? Because I can't stay away from these stupid books Kill me

    Wow there's four days of my life spent reading this book that I'll never get back And it normally doesn't take me that long but I had to self motivate myself with promises of chocolate If you just read one page just to get through itI usually don't give too many books only 1 star In fact there is only one book I can think of that angered me this much and that was The Vampire Diaries The Return I only got 50 pages deep into it before I flung it across the room So I am very proud that I was able to finish this POS to write a review There is NO reason this book should have a higher rating than Mockingjay a few Harry Potter books and The Pride and the Predjudice NO REASONAfter all of that I have one uestion for Cassandra Clare Was this some sort of sick April fool's joke? Why was this even published?Now before the fangirls come out to defend their master let me explainI actually liked the original 3 books I wouldn't say I loved them or call them literary masterpieces but I did find them entertaining City of Endless Angst City of Fallen Angels picks up 2 months after City of Glass left off One would think the conflict between Jace and Clary was over but no CC has the nerve to regress her characters And there lies my biggest problem with the book WHERE WAS THE PLOT? While everyone was busy fawning over each other Shadowhunters are being murdered But alas no one gives a shit How would I describe our characters in CoFA you ask? Well a picture is worth a thousand wordsDracoJace Bordered between and Wangsty teen and a cocky prick And yes kids he actually says he is better than everyoneClary He loves me He loves me notSimonI really liked him in the orignial trilogy I found him funny Sadly he was boring He wandered around this book with not a clue what was going on Alec and Magnussigh They didn't even show up until half the book was over And when they did all they did is bitch about Magnus' past sex life Yes and angst The gang is supposed to be investigating the murders of the shadowhunters but there isn't much investigating going on Instead they are too busy ignoring each other going to Simon's band gigs and ripping each other's clothes off in an alley Speaking of Simon he is apparently dating Isabelle and Maia at the same time Yet he doesn't know how it happened Ya Simon we already established that you are confused What's driving Jace and Clary apart? Well Jace starts having these nightmares where just as he and Clary are ripping away their clothes he kills her He decides to ignore her so as not to hurt her Why Clare why? Why did you have to play the I love you can't you see it's killing me? card? Stephenie Meyer already cashed in on that lotto ticket amoungst other recent pathetic YA novels To top it off we have evil minions in gray track suits and sneakers and a badass villain killed in the most shitty ending I have ever read And that cliffhanger Not everyone who dies has to come back to life Clare I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Valentine makes an appearance in the next two books Clare is also very inconsistent with her storyline When Kyle is first introduced to us he has black hair However two pages later he has brown hair Jace doesn't believe in God yet has the most angel blood in him that anyone else The Pepsi sign is blue and red not Coca Cola Jace doesn't understand any of the pop culture references Simon uotes but Jace spews Shakespeare lines off like its second nature Seriously why didn't the editors catch this? Does my review seem like it's all over the place? Well good cause that's exactly how this book was ALLOVERTHEDAMNPLACEA few days ago Clare posted a FA about the book and ending She is basically validating why she Almighty Author is a genius and you lowly reader are an idiot You can read it here if you haven't already you know what I have to say to her little condescending FA? Cassandra Clare I'm calling you out on the bull shit It's time to stop riding JK Rowling's cash cow Get off the ride is over More reviews and at Cuddlebuggery Book Blog

    The fourth book in the series 'City of Fallen Angels' was a bit of a disappointment for me That isn't to say it wasn't enjoyable though I liked it but it wasn't as great as the earlier books in my opinion It was lukewarm for me at bestWhile the third book seemed to leave off on a promising note this book uickly rained on my parade Just when I thought that they were making progress in their war against evil everything goes and gets messed up again The guys in particular were grating on my nervesSimon is a huge focus in this book He spends most of his time trying to juggle his relationships with Maia and Isabelle He feels kind of guilty for two timing both of the girls who also happen to be friendsbut not guilty enough to choose or to stop This time around the girls aren't the only ones that want to get their hands on Simon His special day walker blood has made him a hot commodity Some want to protect him while others would like to use or kill him Several new characters were introduced that kept things interestingLike Simon Jace spends a lot of time screwing up his personal life in this book His behavior is all over the place He spends a great deal of time distancing himself from Clary nearly ruining their relationship Again the guys were driving me bonkers They were really messing up my mojoIn the end some big events transpired and secrets came to light This may not have been a total win for me but I can appreciate that this book has paved the way for future events in the series I am still enjoying the series as a whole and I can't wait to see where it is heading I'm on to the fifth book now

    1 City of Bones ★★★2 City of Ashes ★★3 City of Glass ★★★1 Clockwork Angel ★★★ “Why is it little Shadowhunter that your angels are so cold and without mercy? Why do they break that which will not obey them?” Okay I’m going to start this review off by saying that I am reading this for the first time in 2018 I know this is almost a decade old And I know so many of my friends hold this series close to their hearts and have a lot of nostalgia for it But friends this was a damn mess Easily the worst book I’ve read from Cassie Clare and the themes were hella harmful and disgusting to read So I’m not going to say any major spoilers but this review is going to talk about my thoughts and feelings which will talk about some things that have already happened in the story and themes that have happened in this book So please use caution while reading this review if you are not up to date with this series Okay I don’t really know how to do this review And I’ll be honest I’m a little scared because I know how beloved this series is But these are the five things really made me dislike this book ONE What have I complained about in every TMI book so far? Jace I mean I guess this book made the most sense on why he was acting the way he was so I’ll cut him a little slack But the dude wants to be Clary’s brother so bad and just wants to live in pain so desperately that it makes for a really unenjoyable reading experience TWO Alec’s behavior in this book killed me I know most of my friends love this character but I honestly have disliked him from the start Not only was he shitty to Clary about something she couldn’t control but now he’s going to be shitty about Magnus and his past? I mean he’s like 800 years old you expect him to be a virgin? I don’t understand And if you all want to be like “Well Alec is still young” Then maybe he shouldn’t be dating someone that’s so much older and experienced than him I mean he obviously can’t handle it And I also feel like there were some “stereotypical gay dude” things in this that made my skin crawl honestly And how he treated an abused person at the end of this book because he’s a petty little fuck? throws up forever THREE Cheating is not okay even if you’re young grieving and learning what you want from a relationship Simon is one of my favorite characters If I was Clary I would have easily wanted to be with him over Jace But I’ll never be here to make excuses for people’s shitty actions And Simon acted really shitty in this book And not to be too much here but who the fuck would cheat on Isabelle Lightwood anyway? Like what a dumbass FOUR Abuse apologists’ storylines need to be canceled and they are never okay; not in 2018 and not back in 2010 And the fact that I’ve never even seen this mentioned makes me honestly sick to my stomach Comparing Simon’s need to eat from blood will NEVER be the same as a freshly turned werewolf physically assaulting and turning someone they “care” about into a werewolf against their wishes There should be no redemption arc here ever It’s disgusting and was honestly the biggest contributing factor as to why I hated this book FIVE Like nothing happened in this book until the last four chapters And then the “twists” felt so over the top that I couldn’t even stop the side eye if I tried Especially the closing like of this book Lord help me And like with all my reviews of this series I’m going to break down my thoughts briefly on each of the main characters ➽ Jace Wants to live his life in pain and annoy me forever ➽ Clary Such a bland character Like she is supposed to be the star true? But she’s so forgettable ➽ Simon My dude fucked up ➽ Isabelle My ueen Deserves the entire universe and all the stars within it Way too fucking good for Simon at this point ➽ Magnus My king Deserves the entire universe and all the stars within it Way too fucking good for Alec at this point ➽ Alec I honestly feel like I just disliked him and each book When am I finally going to see this character that you all love so much? ➽ Luke Planning a wedding therefore not in this book as much But I still love him ➽ Jocelyn Planning a wedding therefore not in this book as much She’s alright ➽ Maia I wish than anything else in this series that she would see her worth and realize that it’s okay to be alone and it’s okay to not accept an apology from your abuser ➽ Jordan The scum of this book I have so much hatred in my heart for him I’m going to buy Maia a “dump him” shirt Boy bye ➽ Seelie ueen Still one of my favorites but Clary still playing with fire I’m hyped ➽ Camille I liked her in TID and I liked her in this one Give me all the morally grey characters please Especially one that gets under Alec’s skin so much ➽ Lilith Like this book was dark as fuck All the stuff with the babies? I was honestly feeling disturbed But she was a pretty good villain if I’m being honest Just a little too over the top Overall I hope this is the only book I’ll give one star to in the Shadowhunter world And I’ll be really honest I am really starting to regret that I didn’t just start my Cassie Clare experience with Lady Midnight because I’m truly thinking that these books don’t hold up well while I read them as an adult in 2018 I feel like this fanbase is really fueled by nostalgia and not actual substance because this book was honestly awful But I’m so ready to dip back into TID with Clockwork Prince Wish me luckBlog | Instagram | Twitter | Tumblr | Youtube | TwitchContent and trigger warnings for medical experimentation a lot of talk of children’s deaths a lot of blood depiction misogynistic comments death murder cheating abandonment self harm talk of suicide and war themes
