This second book in the Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare had a fairly slow beginning and middle until almost the very end. I definitely had problems focusing and keeping my attention on reading this book. With that said, the ending is intense. I really can’t even decide how I feel about it besides partially devastated and maybe frustrated. This series really attempts to tackle some serious issues concerning mental health and different aspects to the LGBTQ community which only increases my love for Clare. I definitely suggest being patient with this series and trying to enjoy it, especially if you are a fan of the first two series in the Shadowhunter world.
This is such a heartwarming book of short stories all centering on Simon’s time at the Shadowhunter Academy. He may have “Demon Amnesia” but he has amazing friends who are there to help him along the way. This really is a must read for fans of Cassandra Clare’s World because there are actually a lot of details in this that cant be missed!
Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!
