I was most interested in Simon’s story and would read the follow-up tales with him, but am ambivalent about reading about the rest of the Shadowhunter crew again.
DO NOT READ THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE INFERNAL DEVICES TRILOGY!!!
THIS BOOK IS FILLED WITH SPOILERS!
I'm so mad, because I ruined Clockwork Princess for myself...
This was the worst part for me. Every time an old character would appear, it turned me off reading this book because I knew a whole new spoiler would appear! Cassandra Clare really believe that teenagers are stupid for planting so clear "clues" about her other series. Ugh!
Other than this, I had a lot of issues with this final installment. Yes, the plot was good and intriguing, and, mostly, I really wanted to know what happened to everybody. But the fact is, it was waaaaaay too convenient. Too predictable, too happy, and mostly, too long! I could have easily cut down 200 pages of this book, especially in the beginning. It dragged on and on! I would have put this book down plenty of times, but I was too afraid of being spoiled. I guess there was not much to spoiled in the end...
Also, the epilogue. Ugh. Something went right and, obviously, it wouldn't have been a lovely fairytale, so Cassandra Clare had to make it all perfect in the end... At least it wasn't 20 years later...
I liked the Blacktorns and Emma Carstairs, though. And the not-so-subtle clues for her new trilogy were okay for me. I really liked the new characters and I enjoyed seeing different points of view throughout the novel. That being said, I will not pick up The Dark Artifices. I think I had it with Cassandra Clare. I will finish The Infernal Devices because I started (and because it's my favorite of hers), but that's it. You lost me.
I liked the book, the jacket is beautiful even though I couldn't find everyone. Moving into the story, the plot was action-packed. I am really really REALLY disappointed by her attempt to bring Emma (for her future series) into the story. I did not bought it and I will be honest; I skipped most of their story telling (I loved Mark and Emma).
I also found some plot holes that were annoying and left me wanting more. I'm pleased by the ending though, I'm glad Simon stayed Simon, as he is one of my favourite. It's pleasing for shipping Malec/Clace as well. I don't know if I'm the only one, but I never liked Jocelyn at all, so her story wasn't interesting to me.
And I still loathe the Clave.
Plus I got to use my knowledge of old English beginning in each chapter and sometimes in between.
Yes, the story plot was one of her best ones,
One of the books that I did not want to put down!
Al that you expect from the writer.
