What is it about? (Summary from GoodReads)
What if damnation is
the price of true love?
Innocent blood has been spilled on the steps of the Council Hall, the sacred stronghold of the Shadowhunters. In the wake of the tragic death of Livia Blackthorn, the Clave teeters on the brink of civil war. One fragment of the Blackthorn family flees to Los Angeles, seeking to discover the source of the disease that is destroying the race of warlocks. Meanwhile, Julian and Emma take desperate measures to put their forbidden love aside and undertake a perilous mission to Faerie to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead. What they find in the Courts is a secret that may tear the Shadow World asunder and open a dark path into a future they could never have imagined. Caught in a race against time, Emma and Julian must save the world of Shadowhunters before the deadly power of the parabatai curse destroys them and everyone they love.
My thoughts (no spoilers):
You know I just love this book!
I (try to) make notes while I’m reading a book that I want to review, this are some of the points:
- I love that I can continue on so soon!
- I love Kit and Ty, I want more from them! (I think I wrote this after like 2 hours of the audiobook..)
- I just love this!
- GO Christina!
- Action! Everyone is so amazing!
- That ending!
So obviously I loved it! I don’t think I can explain very well why I love this so much. It’s just that the story is really worked out and everything fits together. Also there is no character that I really don’t like. Of course I like some characters better than others (KIT AND TY). Also I noticed some things linking to the red scrolls of magic (I CAN’T WAIT!).
The only ‘negative’ thing I can say about this book is that I thought the Christina-Marc-Kieran thing is a bit weird. And that after the ‘big’ battle there was still like 100 pages left? In which definitely some interesting things happened, but it did not need to be that long.
I don’t know to say more without saying too much haha. So I will just leave at this, even though it is so short..
Conclusion: Just read this series, even if you weren’t a huge fan of TMI or TID!! And I’m freaking excited for the red scrolls of magic releasing in like 2 weeks!!!
