The idea of shadow hunters, ancestors of angels, I found truly fascinating. I loved the idea so much that I dreamt of becoming one (yes I know that is embarrassing, but it's true). The characters were described vividly and this helped me put together a mental picture of every single one. I think that the way it was written, in no one's eyes, made sure you got to see a lot more than if it was just in Clary's eyes.
My favorite character should be Jace because I liked his character but when I got in to the next few books I kinda started to stop liking him. I think that my favorite character throughout the whole series was Alec. Every single book he was just perfect. Even though he was gay, that just made me love him more, because he was so different to the rest of them. His personality was just awesome, and he was so kind. I just loved him.
I just loved every part of this book. It's truly fantastic!!!!
