A little about this book. Source from Goodreads-
The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most importantly of all—she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.
But nothing comes without a price.
Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her—his mother just found out that he’s a vampire, and now he’s homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.
Fourth book in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, giving this book 3.5 stars on Goodreads.
It has been a couple of days now since i have finished this book i have been really indecisive whether to write this review as i feel like i will be repeating myself but i thought i’ll do it anyway so i apologize in advance.
Clary Fray is training to become a shadow hunter with the help of Jace, mean while someone is killing shadow hunters, vampires and werewolf’s but who is it?
I have found with these books that they do take sometime to get into as nothing really happens for me once you get past this its easier to read.
Jace is up and down all the way through this book you don’t know whether your going to get the funny, sarcastic Jace that everyone loves or the sad, quite one he also pushes away people mainly Clary. I’ve never been a big lover of Clary she hasn’t been my favorite since the beginning i found she is really stubborn, she doesn’t listen to anyone.
Its not just Jace and Clary that are having problems there’s Isabelle and Simon, Simon learning how to control his want for blood, Jordan and Maia, Alec and Magnus (basically everyone in this book!).
Now i have finished this book there were hardly any scenes where Clary is actually training or hanging out with Simon, honestly i would of also liked more scenes between Luke and Jocelyn.
Communication that is the biggest problem in this book Jace can’t work out who he is he won’t speak to anyone but when he does open up about how he is feeling but once he does Clary tries to fix him.
Overall the read was enjoyable there were good parts and then the parts i didn’t like so much like always with a Cassandra Clare book the writing was detailed . You are probably all wondering why i kept on reading honestly i don’t know either i think is because i wanted to know where this story could go, the ending was my favorite part everyone was together so far this series has been a hit and miss with me i liked the first one also the second but there were also parts that were slow just like the third and fourth book.
Thank you for reading this rambly review i’ve probably just repeated myself anyway i hope you liked it, feel free to leave comment down below.
