Yes, it took me a while to finish this one too. (1) Because I just wanted to do everything else but read. (2) the book, as good as it was, seemed to drag on. A trend I am noticing with this series so far. I do intend to carry on to at least City of Fallen Angels and just take each book as it comes. I am wanting to finish this series because (1) I want to know what happened (2) I want to attempt to read the spin off series of books and hope I like them more. I guess I'll see what happens. :-) ( )

Moves a little more slowly than the first two books in the series, but the plot is still very solid. ( )

Besides some of the squicky parts it all rights itself in the end. I have to say I like who Simon grew into! And I couldn't stand the whiny boy he was before. ( )

To już trzecia część serii. Ponad 1000 stron akcji, a matka Clary nadal śpi. Początkowo zastanawiało mnie to, lecz z czasem wszystko się wyjaśniło. Według mnie każda kolejna część jest lepsza od poprzedniej. Mimo, iż Clary nadal czasami postępuje bezmyślnie, to jednak coraz bardziej ją lubię. Tak samo jest z Jacem i Simonem. Seria spodobała mi się i świat Nocnych Łowców coraz bardziej mnie wciąga. Szkoda tylko, że pierwszy tom nie był równie dobry.

Seria początkowo miała być trylogią, lecz ze względu na odniesiony wielki sukces autorka dopisała jeszcze trzy tomy. Moja siostra jest wielką fanką i nawet ma tatuaż z runą. Uważa jednak, że trzy ostatnie tomy są trochę naciągane, jakby autorka nie miała zbyt wielu pomysłów i pisała je na przymus. Także zastanawiam się jeszcze czy warto po nie sięgać czy może też lepiej skończyć na tym tomie. ( )

This book was ok. I think because it is a young adult book in some spots there really was just to much explaining when it was pretty easy to figure out what was going on. I was happy with the ending of the book. If you read the books before this one then you will enjoy this one. ( )

Long is the way
And hard, that out of Hell leads up to Light.
-John Milton, Paradise Lost
For my mother. "I only count the hours that shine."
First words
The cold snap of the previous week was over; the sun was shining brightly as Clary hurried across Luke's dusty front yard, the hood of her jacket up to keep her hair from blowing across her face.
