"My test of a good book is dreading to begin the last chapter." - Thomas Helm
This you must listen to slowly because the next/final book isn't our for a while, ugh. It's a fantastic book! Buy it & enjoy!
i love to read an amazing book that will take me out of this world and bring me to another sometimes we just need to use our imagination!
Made me wanting more
The lust and love between jace and clarey is so Suttle but whn it happens it always just enough !
This was her better one out of this series !
Made me feel intense !
Hope the movies turn out great !
I get that these books are about teenagers and all the hyped up angst and emotions they go through, set to a back drop of a strange and stressful world, but by the time I got to this book I was ready for the roller coaster to be done and this book didn't help the ride.
Cassandra Clare has created a truly fascinating world with some memorable characters (ie Magnus Bane). But I feel like that world gets lost amongst character drama, where people throw tantrums, apply absolutely no logic to their situation, and go completely off emotion 24/7, getting themselves into stupid situations and then are rewarded by narrowly achieving their goals, only perpetuating the dramatic behavior. Basically it's exhausting, kinda like when you watch a scary moving and you shout at the t.v. telling the character to not open the door and yet they do and get eaten, same sort of feeling with these books.
Molly C Quinn's performance was better than in the 4th book, but her tone stays about the same through the whole book, with little inflection and there is almost no voice difference in the characters, making it hard to keep up with who said what.
To summarize, I love the concept of these books, the plots twists even surprise quite frequently, but I would like to see a more mature character development like Clare used in the Infernal Devises.
I cant believe I've gotta wait a whole year for the 6th book to come out. I LOVE this series & cant wait to read it again!!! I loved the fantasy & just EVERYTHING! I cant point out 1 thing bc the whole dang series is AWESOME!!!!
Ive always had a vivid imagination. I'm a constant day dreamer and reader. Always enveloped in a land of mystery, listening to a new adventure or creating my own. I enjoy a good fiction book, especially a supernatural, scifi or under dog story.
I felt this book should have had more action throughout the book.
I enjoyed that this book showed a bit more of Simon's perspective. But the book as a whole felt like a roller coaster of love drama, continuously revisiting the same love triangles. I like when a book has a good mix of romance and action and this book did not meet that perfect mixture. It had more love drama than anything else. The first 2/3rds of the book was a bit too slow for my taste but the ending wasn't too bad. I personally enjoyed the other books in this series more than i enjoyed this one.
I have recommended this series to many friends:)
so far Simon is my favorite character, he's someone we can all relate to at some point in our lives
I have enjoyed Cassandra Clare's City of ... series so far, but this book is almost a re-write of book 3. The series really needs to wrap up the whole Valentine and Son as villains plot arc and come up with something fresh or end the series.
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
Absolutely, but not before reading the first 4 books.
That Cassandra Clare doesn't make these books into a Jace and Clary love story. There's so much more to this series than just a teen love story.
She's just "okay" as a narrator, in my opinion.
Is it weird that I'm in love with Magnus Bane?
I loved the way Cassandra Clare wrote the story. The way each character dives into a personal quest while fight collectively to save Jace and everything.
I don't know, maybe the serie Switched.
No, but If I could, I'd like have a little talk with Sebastian (or Jonathan). He could be very gracious and boring on the same time. Would be interesting talk with Magnus too. He always make me laugh.
This series is amazing.
