Captivating, gut-wrenching, a simply masterful book. Every emotion portrayed within the pages of this book, I felt. These characters jumped off the pages. I will admit there were times in which I was bored, but over all, half way through it I was trapped. Tried as I might I could not put the book down, not even to write my own. There was a lot of character development in the novel, I simply loved it. The love triangle as well, however cliché (two friends loving the same girl) presents a very interesting conflict in the book and the writing makes the relationships and torn affection believable and real. Every passionate kiss exchanged all the torn moments in the book are masterfully written to make ones heartache. Certainly made my heart ache. I simply loved this book, I loved the writing, the characters and the plot which is, although not entirely different from the original Mortal Instruments is, in fact different, a plot and story within it’s own right. You have mystery, adventure and a tale of revenge coupled by the tearful love triangle, what more could one want? 4/5 ★’s & an “A-“.
