4,4 stars

I know people like to shit on Cassandra Clare's books, but I can't in good conscience give this anything less than four stars considering how much I enjoyed the read.

Is Clare the literary wizard of our time? Sure not. Are these books incredibly original or mind blowing? Not really. What they are, is enjoyable. They are easy to read, fast paced, and exciting. There's enough humor to keep it from slipping too far into melodrama, and the relationship drama is made believable through the characters being teenagers. I wouldn't be able to suspend my disbelief if adults were going through these things, but teenagers are, by nature, mercurial, so I can let it pass.

I just had a good time reading this and will hopefully get to the fourth book some time this spring. ( )

Sebastian is the hottest piece of evil I've ever seen and this is probably my favorite book in the series

Allora... FINALMENTE ho finito la prima trilogia. Insomma... Il terzo libro è stato di poco migliore dei due precedenti, per via del fatto che i personaggi secondari mi hanno convinta a continuare. Continuo a pensare a Clary e Jace come odiosi ed inutili, mi spiace. Non li sopporto. Alec, Magnus, Hodge, Sebastian/Jonathan Christopher e gli altri sono personaggi molto più interessanti.
Valentine/Hitler è un personaggio piuttosto interessante, anche se ovviamente ha intenzioni e opinioni assolutamente da non condividere. Importante è stato l'intervento di Raziel, comparso verso la fine, che ha distaccato sé stesso e Dio dalle intenzioni di Valentine.
Shadowhunters e Nascosti si sono dovuti alleare contro un nemico comune, mettendo quindi da parte il risentimento. Anche qui, avrei voluto che il rapporto Shadowhunters/Nascosti fosse meglio approfondito. Gli Shadowhunters sono nati per combattere i demoni, ma uccidono anche i Nascosti, che sono ritenuti inferiori. Prima degli Accordi, i Nascosti venivano uccisi come animali, pezzi di loro presi come trofei. Insomma, avrei voluto vedere di più questa fragile dinamica.
Sebastian/Jonathan Christopher è un personaggio affascinante e avrei sperato che gli fosse dato più spazio.
Nel complesso do tre stelle perché la storia è interessante e accattivante e così anche i personaggi secondari, ma lo stile di scrittura pieno di similitudini e gli insopportabili Jace e Clary non mi hanno fatto gradire a pieno il libro.

Epigraph
Long is the way
And hard, that out of Hell leads up to Light.
-John Milton, Paradise Lost
Dedication
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.
