I liked this book. I still think Ms. Clare need not have made this a 6-book series, although I do love the characters and still enjoy reading about them. The whole whole star-crossed thing between Jace and Clary is getting a bit tired... can't someone else have issues? Does it always need to be them?! At any rate, I'll certainly finish the series when the last one comes out because I love the books and the characters, but I'm not loving the second half of the series as I loved the first.
