Absolutetly wonderful book. Would recomend to anyone. Book pulls you into an amazing world and can keep you there for hours. Wonderful characters great story line. An absolute must read for YA lovers! ( )

Ugh. Really? Ugh. The first few chapter were Jace-less, which significantly improved my ability to tolerate it, but then (of course) Clary has to do a stupid and go after him. Sebastian and Jace are in a total bromance now, which is great, because Sebastian wants to give "the D" to Clary. Yay incestuous love triangles? This series keeps devolving more and more into the lowest dregs of fanfiction. ( )

Totally loved this one. I enjoy seeing what is going on with so many characters from The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments. I like the ideas of going to almost any extent for love and then having to ignore those feelings for the sake of doing what's right. The way the author intertwines all of the religious aspects with her fantasy world makes the depth so much richer. Sexual desires are more prevalent in this installment, not that it's an erotic novel, but they aren't little children anymore. I also like how the author is always flirting with the subject of incestuous sibling relationships. I'm very much looking forward to more.

Epigraph
No man chooses evil because it is evil.
He only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks.
- Mary Wollstonecraft
Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love.
-William Shakespeare,Love's Labour's Lost
I love you as one loves certain dark things
-Pablo Neruda, "Sonnet XVII"
All changed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born.

-William Butler Yeats, "Easter, 1916"
Dedication
For Nao,
Tim, David,
and Ben
First words
"How much longer will the verdict take, do you think?" Clary asked. - Chapter 1
Simon stood and stared numbly at the front door of his house. - Prologue
Quotations
(p 155)

Simon, I've been trying to call you, bit it seems like
your phone is turned off. I don't know where your are
right now. I don't know if Clary's already told you
what happened tonight. But I have to go to Magnus's
and I'd really like you to be there.

I'm never scared, but I'm scared for Jace. I'm scared
for my brother. I never ask you for anything, Simon,
but I'm asking you now. Please come.

Isabelle.
(p 379)

Now this is the Law of the Jungle,
as old and as true as the sky,
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper,
but the Wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk,
the Law runneth forward and back;
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
(p 388-389)

To mirror when she straightaway
And did her ebon hair array
And for her gown she much did pay.
Then down she walked along the street,
A handsome lad she chanced to meet,
And sore by dawn were her dainty feet,
But all the boys were gay.
(p 432)

Black for hunting through the night
For death and sorrow, the color's white.
Gold for a bride in her wedding gown,
And red to call enchantment down."
