Cassandra Clare just loves to make me have to keep reading her books. Tessa, Will, and Jem are at it again and now there is so much more going on in London. There are unanswered questions about The Magister, of who he is, where he is, and why is he doing the things that he’s doing. Tessa is falling more and more in love with Will and Jem, and Will is doing what he can to push her away. The fate of the Institute and how it is run is put into question and more details about Will’s past is put into the forefront. Also The Lightwoods’ with all of their pure bred breeding turn out not to be so pure as well.
Jace and Clary are back together… well kind of. After the few days they had had together they needed some time to rest and regroup. One of their many problems though were that they were not doing it together. Simon is being tested by Jace and Clary’s relationship even though they all know that the two of them can’t be together, Jace and Clary that is. Simon is also facing his own inner battles that his best friend is having a hard time noticing. To top it all off, Valentine is back and has the Mortal Cup, Jace is in love with his sister, and Clary is in love with her brother, but they know that they can’t be together. Also Jace is being tried for conspiring with Valentine to basically take over the world, and the Inquisitor is being brought in to question Jace, but she has a secret grudge against him making him constantly guilty. Also Clary has her hands filled with her own family problems from her mom, Jocelyn, being permanently asleep, and Luke being a werewolf she has a lot on her plate.
As you can see there is a lot going on in the next book of the Mortal Instruments series, and there is never a dull moment. I’m still in love with these books and enjoying the series so much. I still recommend these books to the highest level, especially if you love the romance of Twilight, the magical aspect of Harry Potter, and the badassness (made it up, perfect word though) of The Hunger Games. I’m going to continue reading the other 3 books that are left, and will read the Prequel Trilogy that comes before it! So we all know that means more posts!!!!
Until Next Time,
Keep turning the pages
