THIS BOOK. THIS IS THE CASSANDRA THAT I LOVE.
As you probably saw in my previous reviews, I’m not a huge fan of The Mortal Instruments series. Clary to me wasn’t lovable or relatable and it was super corny in how the book was written (even though there are some KILLER twist in there that make it worth reading).
Clare’s writing sky-rockets in this second series of her’s. Not only that, but she puts more and more twists and turns, which is what I NEED in a book. I love following the evolution of an author. Clare is growing so much and I’m so excited to see where she goes with it.
Now the story.
Main lady: Tessa
Tessa is kidnapped and basically experimented on by two witches called “The Dark Sisters.” She is rescued by the London Institute of Shadowhunters and they are very interested in her unique ability that she was trained on by The Dark Sisters.
Which leads to another question.
What in the WORLD is Tessa? Warlock? Demon? Something completely new?
So many things need to be answered. Like is her brother okay? Do the Dark Sisters still have him? Who is The Magister and what does he want with Tessa? What’s wrong with Shadowhunter Jem and why is he so colorless? Why is Shadowhunter Will such a jerk? Is there something more to him than meets his words? Is Shadowhunter Jessamine really as unhappy as she seems? Why? Who is Cecily? What did Will do to make a Lightwood hate him so much?
WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE WALKING AROUND WITHOUT FACES WHO ARE LIKE SUPER STRONG AND WANT TO KILL EVERYONE?!
Clare keeps you on your toes. Please read this books and nerd out with me.
