I have taught my two boys at home for the last 8 years. A love of literature of all kinds led me to Audible.
I have read all of Cassandra Clare's books related to this series. Understanding what story to which this was a prequel absolutely made the story line exciting and enticing. The characters she has created in this series are connected over long periods of time and in ways that are sometimes mysterious but always compelling. The unique world she has created continues to exist in my imagination and my heart long after I finish her works and this 3 book series was no different. With her usual pacing and poise she had me walking along with the characters I have love from the previous series and envisioning myself living in England of Olde.
Of course, Magnus Bane is my favorite character in all of her books. Complicated, compassionate, feisty, powerful, and sarcastic he is at once the most daring and the most human character in the books. As an aside, the Bane Chronicles (10 of them) will tell you more about the life of Magnus over time and are short listens well worth your time. Kudos to Clare for creating a character that I would love to meet in real life.
I often think that some novels are placed in YA (Young Adult) because that is where editors believe they will sell. Clare's books are not written for children and they certainly are not written only for young adults. The characters she has created, some wise, some young and naive, help to deliver all kinds of messages throughout her complicated stories. If you are looking for a series that will engross you for a long time to come then Cassandra Clare's books are those books. The love, the hate, the family grudges, and the world in which the characters live reaches across long periods of time and space and she masterfully pulls the reader in and envelopes the reader part of the world.
This series rekindled my intense love of reading. Working full time leaves little free time to read so listening during work has become my reading. The ending was beautiful but I will leave no spoilers. So much love. The story was beautifully performed.
In the first half, I thought this was another tedious angst-ridden YA novel, but I am glad I stuck with it. There were some great plot twists and I actually shed a few tears near the end, which is unusual for me.
One of the best endings I've ever read. Very satisfying wrap up of the series. I will mentioned that I bawled like a baby towards the end, damn Cassandra for that.
just wow. so good couldn't turn it off. The author created a world so amazing and vivid that u feel like u were there. it also sheds light on some of the character relations in the mortal instruments.
AHHHHH I was not a happy camper when Jem went to become a silent brother and Teas and Will began their courtship---
I was FUMING when Tess and Will slept together when they thought Jem had died--- even if he had.... it had only been hours maybe a day. I get that they also believed they would die but I still had trouble with it. But I loved when he decided to court her the long way around and how deeply they both felt the loss of Will.
The death of Will was so beautiful and the details of their life together brought tears to my eyes. And when Jem came in and played him a song of his life on his death bed I lost it! Soooo beautiful! SO MANY TEARS!
I would have been happy their and the fact that she added in Jem and Tessa finding their way back to eachother was just an added bonus! looovvveee.
Please read book 1 & 2 before this book. This is an awesome conclusion to this trilogy. It made laugh and cry. It is suspenseful. And the narrator was the best narrator for this series. I hope they can use him again for future shadow hunter series books.
