Do I need to say is by Cassandra Clare? You probably already know that, but there I said it. Now, I might have to warn you that this review could contain some minor spoilers, that I might talk a lot about Julian Blackthorn, and that I freaking loved it! Even more so than the other 10, I was as surprised as anyone else, because I love TMI and Clockwork Princess became one of my favorite books, but Lady Midnight was just too F**king Awesome!
And I know you will enter my chaotic thought process… thank you for being here. What you are about to read has some minor spoilers and it was written during and shortly after I read LM.
I tend to say that but considering that I have to talk about Jem, Will and Tessa that might not be entirely true this time… oh! And Gideon as well as Gabriel and Cecily but the latter two will not be that much in my ramblings…
What to say that has not been said before? I know, lots of things! Because never in my wildest dreams (cue in Taylor Swift’s song in the background if you want) would have I imagined that Cassandra could surprise me or make me love even more characters from the Shadow World, Jem is almost certainly perfect, Tess can be a little bit annoying but by book 3 you wanted to be like her or have her luck, that was when you were not crying over the events on that book, as for Will Herondale… what can I say? You might have thought he was just like Jace but in the end he really wasn’t, not entirely.
But that is enough for the overview, I will give you a bit of what I thought as I was reading Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess, since Clockwork Angelis pretty much done in that link you just overlooked.
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 Continue reading →
