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.
Great Book, But too positive
This book was good, but (spoiler alert) I dislike that in every series everything works out perfectly in the end. Obviously things aren’t perfect , but the characters personal lives/problems are all resolved. I would have found it more interesting had there been more tragedy written in.
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.
