Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.
My thoughtsI simply loved this book, and I was totally mesmerized by the universe that Clare has created. It's unique, fascinating and exciting. It simply had everything and even more. Clare is a magnificent writer. She makes everything seem so real and believable, and all the characters in the book felt like real people.
The story was great, I simply could not put the book down, while I was reading it. I liked the whole introduction to the shadowhunters, and how everything is slowly uncovered. And I love a book where you're constantly guessing how it all fit together, just to be suprised most of the time anyway. There were several plot twists I hadn't seeing coming (and that's always something), and after that last part of the book I was completely shellshocked. What a turning point!
