Liberal propaganda filled with thinly veiled political metaphors that fool nobody. Ridiculous character arcs that do nothing to further the plot but only serve to pander to the current political climate. What started out as fantastic literature has become trash. I won’t be reading any more of her books.
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.
Good read. Not sure I really like the threesome side story in there. This is a young adult book and just seems odd. I think it would have been better without that developing. Yet I am sure it will come into play later. The transgender was addressed just enough. But interjected is some ways that seems to almost damped the build ups, yet I suppose since it was created as a side story it needed closure and it was done nicely. I feel like trying to interweave those with the main characters almost complicated the storyline and lost some of the magical flow. But I would still totally read it again and as always great plots and twists. Love all the characters and the evolution and direction of the story leaves me excited for the next book. Just not as wow as some of the other books.
