I should really wait until I finish all three books, which is what I was going to do before writing this, oh! Well, I am doing it right now.
Have you read The Mortal Instruments? I hope you have, because they are so completely awesome, but this is about what happened before Clary, Jace, the Lightwoods, and Simon all got together to save the world.
Let me number it all for you, the emotions I had in the finale… sadness, when it started because I knew it was the last one, fear because at every turn I was waiting for someone to kill Kate, relief (short lived) each time she was alright, or Kevin or Javi, or even Castle was, then something akin to excitement or adrenaline with those shooting sessions, discovering who was LokSat should have come more like a surprise but it was like disappointment rather. But when Caleb was very much alive and shot Rick, I literally gasped in surprise…
Well The Door was something else; I cannot believe all that happened, actually I do but the end scene was just too traumatic and dramatic for me to grasp that it was in fact, something that will happen in the books, spoilers, spoilers everywhere.
I liked the episode but from here on I am going to be back and forward between the books and what happened in the series, because this is just too much to hold in, and have to say it all while it is still fresh.

Well, this is a first. I didn’t like this book as much as I suspected I would, I loved the movie is one of my favourite movies of all times, I have lost count the times I’ve watched it, I practically know the dialogues by heart as well as the music and scenery, I loved it.
But we are here, in this virtual space because of the books, books we love, books we share with others, books we share even when we don’t like them that much. I wish I could say that I absolutely adored this read but I got to be honest, I have read better, I am not saying that Mr Gaiman is a bad a writer or nothing of the sort because he isn’t and he has incredible imagination, this is about me and the fixation I had with the movie, I suppose. Although it really is the first time that I read something and don’t find it as charming as the film.
If you have not read The Mortal Instruments books from City of Glass onward then please sustain from reading this post… it is so full of spoilers that you might have no need of reading the books to know one of the most psychotic characters ever created in the Shadow World. Kudos to Cassie Clare for having such imagination as to come up with Sebastian.
Alright you have been warned, and I am assume you will know what I’m about to talk about or simply don’t care about the spoiler alert I just gave! Once more, Spoilers ahead by the Angel read knowing I tried to warn you
