First let me say, Clare is one of my favourite authors. She writes witty characters and snappy dialogue in a world with a solid mythology that I just love to inhabit. In my opinion, as a fan, this has been her best effort to date and I can't wait for the rest of the series.
Clare's books always have two big plotlines. The Bad Guy plot, an the Romantic plot. I'd call it a romantic subplot, but in her books those plotlines take such a strong role that I think classifying them as subplots would be unfair.
The Mortal Instruments suffered from some cliché ideas (sometimes subverted) and too-perfect characters (I mean, even their flaws made them cooler). But I still loved the book because of those characters and their dialogue and friendships. It featured a refreshingly diverse cast and smart storyline. The Romantic plot and the Bad-Guy plot were well balanced throughout the original series.
The Infernal Devices again had amazing characters who, in my opinion, were different but still just as great as the original cast. The Romantic plot powerfully carried the story though, and the Bad-Guy plot was paper thin.
The Dark Artifices brings a huge cast of new fully developed diverse characters to life. The Romantic plot at the forefront of the story, but the Bad-Guy plot is also strong with a great twist at the end. Interestingly, it seemed like at the end of Book 1 the Bad-Guy plot is wrapped up. But in the denouement we get a hint of what's maybe-to-come and I have to say I'm excited for the direction!
Emma is a strong heroine in a way Clary and Tessa had trouble being because they were positioned as new to the Shadow World.Read more ›
You're welcome ;)
Ok that out of the way... I LOVED this book! It was so good, everything I've come to know and love from Cassandra Clare, she doesn't disappoint! I don't want to say too much for fear of giving anything away. But I will say that I adored how she incorporated some of my all time favorite characters into this story! My only complaint is that we have to wait sooooooooo long for the next book! I'll go crazy by then lol!
It’s no secret that I’m definitely not the biggest fan of Cassandra Clare. I mean don’t get me wrong, I was downright OBSESSED from the ages of 12-15, even after I felt like the books started to drag on and get old I still kept reading them and buying the latest installments which is exactly why I picked up Lady Midnight. It’s like a sick love-hate relationship, I’ve invested so much time and so many feelings into the Shadowhunter world I have to know what’s going on and I keep coming back. Needless to say going into this book with an open-mind took a lot of hard-work and there was definitely more than one moment in time where I had to stop and give myself a talk like “Megan can you just chill and not be such a hater for once in your life that would be great thanks.”
Surpassed my expectations.
Usually I would say that the fact the main characters were only 17 felt a little unbelievable but with Lady Midnight I’d say Clare managed to pull it off. The way Emma and Julian reacted to certain situations, the responsibilities they took over, even just their thought-processes and dialogue had them looking like they could easily be in their mid-twenties but due to the traumatic events of their past’s and a life of constantly having to watch their back’s it felt a lot more creditable and I was able to role with it.
In a surprising turn of events I actually really liked Emma and I really didn’t expect to. Emma knew her s***. Unlike Clare’s previous protagonists Clary (The Mortal Instruments) and Tessa (The Infernal Devices) Emma has been a Shadowhunter her entire life.Read more ›
