It took me a while to read this one, but I did so enjoyed it and in the end, it led to what we already knew. But while reading The Wicked Ones, I was actually trying to remember about what little information I had on Céline Montclaire and as such I will now share my in-the-moment thoughts.
If you haven’t read this short story or don’t know about The Mortal Instruments story, I suggest you don’t continue because there are some spoilershere.
Let’s get this PoV started… I was so excited and I read with excitement up until some points at the end that had the capacity to slow my reading progress but at the same time I wanted to finish because I like the story as a whole, these books and movies were a big part of my life in the past and so I wanted to continue and see what Edward thought for sure, I didn’t expect him to be so mopey at times.
Some Families: Herondale, Carstairs, Lightwood, Fairchild, Blackthorn
There is so much to say, and I better give it to you straight and without delay, this is mostly my thoughts while reading, inmeditely after, or right in the middle of things, so pardon my scattered ramblings, but it had to be like this.
Genres: YA. Fantasy. Romance. Totally F*ing Awesome
This is not going to be easy. Also this is going to be so incredibly full of my really inner thoughts. Get ready.
And then I was done. Wow. The last chapter was pretty normal, but before that everything was really heated. I will try to keep the spoilers to a minimum because I want you guys to read it without knowing the main events. However since the first chapters I have been stopping and writing little notes about the moments that got to me.
I liked it, a lot, I think more than Cinder, however for letting us hanging at the beginning in such a way, we wanted more of Kai and Cinder, and instead were greeted by a stranger, for that and for not grasping my attention as I know it should have been grasped, because of it, 4.5 of 5.
Now my thoughts on the whole thing, you will be surprised by how much I liked it.
There are so many moments in this one, I will try to be organised and direct.
If you have not read any of the books in the Shadow World, specially The Mortal Instruments, then I seriously recommend that you first read those and then this one, and if you do not know what this one is about or who is the main character, then please stop reading this, because it contains spoilers for those who are new to the Shadowhunters world. That said, welcome and I hope you share my thoughts on this one.
I read The Maze Runner a long time ago, so my memories might be a little too old. I read this one before the movie came out, just to make sure I had all the facts and that in it (the movie) everything was in order. It was accurate enough but many details were missing.
The Maze Runner book though, I remember I read like thirty percent of it and then stopped even though it is a dystopian book I did not feel like carrying on, but then picked it up after reading other books and saying: I have to finish it, I already started. And by the end of it, James convinced me.
