I finally finished the book! So annoyed that it took me nearly 3 weeks to finish this!
Let’s start – I hate the cover maybe that influence the feeling I am dragging the read.
The whole book is about accepting different, going through hidden tests and finding a way to be you, perhaps that called growing up, being ready to take sides and be with those whom you love.
This is not my best review, I would say!I am also not fond of the book – 10 small books bound in one edition, OK, the plot does surprises for choosing Simon to be on the spot light and how “down on earth” is he. But instead of saying “wow” and “amazing” I am – where is this going?
I can’t give high rating just because this is C.Clare writing and so far I have enjoyed the books. Apparently, this book gave a feeling I am done with the series (!!!). Because, although this book deals with Simon’s amnesia and his way to find his new personality – aka himself again in Shadowhunter Academy, of all the places – and each of the visitor tutor gives a personalized lecture about how and what happened in the past and how important it is – it felt ridiculous that these students were given the info – and how was this info spread to the rest of the Shadowhunters then, what was meant with Simon and George bounding to give the cliff cut at the end? Teaching us with Mortal Cup you can never know the outcome?
The name giving session to the baby – I was hoping the characters would choose something new, something entirely new, but giving the name that already existed and the character had died – sorry – just doesn’t make sense and doesn’t sound sentimental at all. Let’s be honest, some of the stories went on and on to nowhere, pointlessly dragging.
I Liked to read about these new characters and “parabhatai” topic was something new as well, how well and friendly Jace, Alec is about Simon..well, its shown in a good light that the old characters had to change their negative point of view and accept new ones to the them.
But I found the whole book a little bit confusing because we readers have read Lady Midnight and this is somewhere supposed to be read before.
