*I may accidentally or on purpose disclose some action from the book, so whomever doesn’t want any spoilers… AWAY WITH YOU! =P*
The start was kind of slow, which kind of annoyed me into taking a peak at the ending *she smiles innocently but a devilish gleam sparks in her eyes*
Ok, so to not beat about the bush, unlike the novel in review… it was dragged out. Every little detail was painfully insisted on. Not to mention that it had so many perspectives and voices, that sometimes it took me a great deal to understand who’s thoughts were being laid out.
AND THE ENDING TOOK ALMOST 100 FREAKIN’ PAGES!!!!! What the foozers is this??? Only the Epilogue was 44 pages!
And when I said it was dragged out, I mean that I was also expecting something with a bit more of a bang! Or a much more evil plan from Sebastian… but alas he was tamed.
^Major Spoiler alert!^
How could Sebastian give up leading the whole world for leading just a deserted parallel universe, just so he could have Clary????!!! :O I’m not saying I don’t understand the power of love, but the characters in the book made things pretty clear: he doesn’t understand what love is!!!!
The ending was great for only a few characters, like Jace and Clary, her mother and Luke, Magnus and Alec, maybe even a little bit for Simon, since he hated what he’d become and was given a different choice [HAH! I’m not giving everything away! You’re just going to have to read the book =P or wait for the movie… which might take say 10 years =D]
I get why Cassandra Clare added Emma and the Blackthorn family, and why she combined the past (portrayed in the Clockwork series) into the present, but it’s so damn frustrating!!! Now I want to read the Clockwork series just to see what happened there to Tessa and why Zachariah become one of the Silent Brothers, plus what happened to Will and other stuff recollected in Magnus’ memories…. FRUSTRATIIIIIIINNNNNGGGGG!!!!! AARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
Anyway, I’m not going to give you every detail, so if you’ve gotten this far in the series, then just read the final novel!
I’m underlining the previous statement, because I just found out a week ago that one of my friends refuses to read the ending of anything, be it a book, or a short story, and even closes a movie at the very last minutes, because she doesn’t want them to end… This is utterly baffling for me, since I’m the opposite. I skip to the ending so that I can relax and read the rest of the book peacefully, knowing that the characters are going to be ok hahaha
See what I mean? FRUSTRATIIING!!! *she concludes in a high, uncharacteristic voice*
But uuuh, Lady Midnight… yes, you may call me that hihi ^^
