THIS IS THE END OF THE SERIES.
THE OTHER THREE BOOKS DO NOT EXIST.
Sigh, alas I am not correct. The series sadly does continue after this even though it should have ended after this book. Greedy, Clare? I understand that the next three books tie in The Infernal Devices and starts up The Dark Artifices; but really, it could have all been one book.
I’ll vent about them when I get to them.
So this one was great. Her writing is still very young for me, but her story telling is still phenomenal. Clary is still as annoying as she was in the last two. I can’t stand her. She is whinny and selfish and expects everyone to see why her way is the only option. I loved the fact that the other characters started to see that about her too. Isabelle was taking none of her crap anymore. She even said that when this was all over she hopes Clary never makes an appearance in her or her family’s (that includes Jace) life again. I was cheering so hard for her.
Every single other character in this series has a backbone. Alec was the smart, quiet one that found himself in the story. Jace, even though he is obsessed with Clary, is a mega hero. Isabelle was sassy and direct and not the shy girl of the series. Magnus is… Magnus. Sebastian was the villain we all hate to love and love to hate.
What’s different between him and Valentine is that Sebastian literally was evil. He wasn’t thinking what he was doing was for the greater good. He literally just wanted to kill everyone for selfish desires.
Anyway, the book was overall a good read. I love diving into this world. I’m kind of just getting ready for her new release though, let’s be honest.
