If you haven't read the first three than read this comment no further! Spoilers ahead! This book was simultaneously amazing and painful. At the end of the third book everything was perfect! Jace and Clary aren't brother and sister after all! Valentine AND Sebastian are both dead and the Clave is saved. So why, WHY would Cassandra Clare write another book where the peace everyone finally achieved gets thrown into the air. Well, you'll just have to read to find out. What we thought was over, might not be. Jace starts becoming distant. Clary begins to doubt Jace and stumbles onto another mystery she has to investigate. Simon keeps getting attacked by a weird cult. What is going on?! Very exciting! Definitely recommend!
