This series just keeps adding to itself. At this point, the world is so well explained and the story is so complex that you really have to concentrate to pick up everything. And this book added so much to the series. A lot of crap went down in this book, and it was absolutely crazy. After the ending of the last book, one big thing had to be fixed or else I was going to throw this book across the room and cry forever (those of you who have read this series know what I'm talking about). And, thankfully, it was all fixed. So great. The writing was, as usual, pretty good. However, I did get kind of annoyed with all the different romances going on, and when Clare would switch points of view and go to Jordan and Maia, who basically had nothing to do with the story. The story line, staging, and explanations for the events were all very well done and very well explained. And omg that ending! Gosh I felt like I couldn't breath as I was reading it. Also, I will forever remember this book because of the last lines of the last page. Best finish ever.
As you all may or may not know, Jace is my fictional boyfriend. I don't care what you say or who tries to take him away from me, he's mine. He's a smart-ass, blond god who has a great personality and is totally full of himself. Plus he's sexy and kick-ass. So I've come to the conclusion that if I can't find a blonde Shadowhunter sometime in my life that I am going to die alone. Thank you Jace for ruining my life. Clary keeps on growing on my as the series goes on. Even though she made some really stupid decisions in this book, I really like her strength, drive, and personality.
I can't wait for the last book. Seriously, WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN! Ugh the suspense is killing me!!
