Simon, Daylighter vampire teen is protected by the Mark of Cain, a pillar of fire from Heaven blazes attackers into salt, but an enemy gets at him through his first love Clary, who must face consequences, and maybe lose Jace. A Greater Demon infects nights of her Shadowhunter beloved for control, and sends grey-garbed minions for Simon himself.
Again another great instalment in the Mortal Instrument series. I don't know how Cassandra Clare does it, draws you in and doesn't let you go. What can I say, I was once again fangirling.
What was also great was the different point of views from a variety of characters. Mainly from Simon, Clary and Jace, but also a glimpse of other characters minds and actions.
Of course nothing is peachy and happily ever after, there is a lot more problems these guys need to face. Especially Simon, which was refreshing to see what he is going through since he became a vampire and the mark of Cain.
Even though Clary is growing up and accepting of what she truly is, I found her sometimes to have that immature streak. I have nothing against people crying, but when it becomes excessive I tend to lose my mind.
Yes her and Jaces' relationship isn't perfect, but whose is? I hope to see more maturity from her in the final two books, or something border line of that. Maybe just no more crying and I would be happy.
There is something else I wanted to discuss, but I'm trying to keep this spoiler free as possible. Just the mention of this characters name blares Spoiler Alert. So if you have read it and want to know what I am talking about, you can leave a comment below, or check out my updates on Goodreads.
