Amazing and capturing stories that I love so much
An amazing read
This is an amazing end to the dark artifices trilogy and any fans of the mortal instruments will be immensely satisfied with this series. I would even go as far as saying that this is better written than the mortal instruments with a much more interesting and compelling cast in my opinion.
Love CC, but...
I have read all of the Shadowhunter Novels and loved them, but this one is definitely the worst; which says a lot considering the rest of CC’s books are strokes of pure genius. There were lots of character plots that took away from what had potential to be a good story. The story line itself is honestly hard to follow and the use of Annabel was minimal. I did like seeing how things could have been after the Mortal War though. That is primarily what gives this book the 3 stars. The Cristina, Kieran, and Mark thing had me weirded out to level 10.5, not to mention I didn’t find myself rooting for Emma and Julian like I had been at the beginning of the series. Overall if you have read the other Dark Artifacts Novels and want to finish the series you should, but don’t hold this book to as high a standard as the others because in the end it will disappoint. Shadowhunter fans know that I am not hating on CC at all because I love her and her writing a lot I just think this project was a small hiccup.
