This book was a slight hit and miss for me. It was probably the writing style although the storyline was good, I did feel like the writing style let it down.
This book isn’t my typical kind of book. I am not into crime books but this book has been sat on my shelf since the day it came out. After tidying up my bookshelves I came across this book again, the cover drew me in and the blurb got me. It didn’t sound like a typical crime book and I thought why not give it a go and I am so glad I did.
Like all good books coming off a cliffhanger, this book starts exactly where we left off in Glass Houses and I am so glad because the cliffhanger just sucked. Big time.
After watching the TV series which I loved I just had to read the book but I was completely disappointed. I am not sure if I read the book before the TV series that I would like it any less then I do now.
I really struggled to sum my thoughts and feelings about this book into a review. The book is good and has lots of action but what really bugged me is with a lot of dystopian books they give background and this one doesn’t. I understand that in their world you are divided into factions but what I really want to know is why?
This whole book is based on choices and what happens after you make those choices. The book centres mainly on Triss and her initiation into the faction she chooses (no I’m not going to tell you what that is, read it yourself to find out) and the struggles she goes through to prove herself.
The Mortal Instruments is a series that I am sure I read a very long time ago with no recollection of doing it, regardless of whether I have read it or not I am glad that I have now read the first book.
Do you ever read a book that is so emotional and raw, and you just ugly cry? Well that is what happened to me when reading this book. I ugly cried so badly.
So, I hated this book so very much.
I’m not sure what to say about this book. I loved it can’t deny that but I just feel like it was just a starter book gearing you up to read the next one.
I devoured this book. It was good and I just kept wanting to read.
