Yes I know, I have been on a posting marathon with this…….. anyway, this book is number 4 of the Mortal Instruments and it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be, as the previous book was excellent; this book, nah.
Enough dwelling on how the book is in comparison to the others. This book is the continuation of the war of Downworlders and Shadow Hunters against the ruthless Demons and Valentine’s servants. Even though Valentine himself is dead, his influence is still around.
With Clary’s best friend underestimating his ability to resist blood, he his constantly fighting with the temptation to be what he is- a Vampire. After biting an innocent 14 year old, he realises even though he wants to live a normal life, he has to consider the Vampire side of him too.
This is the Blurb on the back of the book:
Clary is back in New York and life is good: she’s training to be a Shadowhunter and is finally able to call Jace her boyfriend. But nothing comes without a price. When Jace inexplicably begins to pull away from her, Clary is forced to acknowledge that she herself has set in motion a chain of events that could lead to the loss of everything she loves. Even Jace.
Demons, Vampires, Werewolves and Warlocks. A new world. Even a bit of romance. What else could you expect from a legendary series of books??
