I wasn't bored reading this, doesn't mean it was all that great either. And honestly speaking, I wonder now what I found so compelling in the first books in the series. Its either that or I'm getting weary of this.

Review by

I continue to be bored senseless by Clary and Jace. It's not their fault I realise. They can't help the author not being very good and clearly falling back on her fanfiction roots.This book and I presume the rest of the series are at that point when you realise a narrative has continued past the point where it was originally meant to concluded. The whole Jace is having nightmares thing is such a nothing plot but as with the rest of this entire series the saving grace is the life and times of Simon. A daywalker vampire with the Mark of Cain is a very interesting premise and I've reached the point where I find myself skimming through the Clary portions of the story to the next time Simon shows up. To my surprise I'm enjoying the new Isabelle/Simon thing though the whole two timing thing at the start was amazingly contrived.Overall I'm hoping Simon continues to grow as a primary protagonist though I still wish the Mortal Instruments series had ended as a trilogy and Simon had gotten his own spin-off series. Clary and Jase keep getting dragged back into a story that doesn't really want them any more but I suppose some people just life utterly predictable and pedestrian 'epic' romances regardless of how boring it actually is.
