Review: This is the fourth book in the Mortal Instruments series and I really liked it. Although, the beginning was a little slow moving once things picked up I was completely hooked. I wasn't sure this book was going to be able to live up to the first three books and i heard a lot of mixed reviews about this one but I thought it was a great addition to the story. As always, I loved all of the characters. I wish Magnus had been in this one a little bit more. Hopefully he will have a bigger part in the next one. I did like that Simon was in this one more. He had a much bigger role in this one and I liked that. Clary and Jace are absolutely awesome and i love them both so much. Based on how this book ended I am really excited to read the next book in this series.
