Shadowhunters TV So Far: New Characters

Hello, readers! Thank you for coming back to the site for more Shadowhunters TV, you were here for something else? Well, you are reading this now so no matter. I have not written a word about the Shadow World on Freeform for some time and mainly it is because I had not had the time to watch all the episodes, when Season 2 ended it escaped my mind to come here, and once Season 3 started I did not watch all episodes straightaway (*stupid working adult life*) but anyways, as of right now I have watched up to Episode 7 of Season 3, and could not hold back on letting some steam up here.

Here we go, this one will be short (hopefully) so do not worry, and mainly it would be me talking (*cough* ranting) about a couple of characters, specially the new ones. You must know where this is heading if you watched Ep 6 and 7.

Mild spoiler for those who have not watched the show so far.

What’s New

New Characters

Brother Zachariah

The moment Magnus mentioned him I stopped listening to the rest of the episode, there was nothing else but Brother Zachariah, how would they bring to life such an amazing character and then he was there and I was screaming all over the place like a fangirl. Mind you I was not watching it alone and my partner in crime, who has not read the books was looking at me like: what is it? Is just a Silent Brother.

But all the fans of the books will know why I freaked.

Lilith

To the designers and make-up artists of the show: What is up with her makeup? And sometimes her choice in clothes? Not very good.

Lilith was not entirely what we were expecting, what I was at least. She came off a bit crazier than necessary. And the way she possessed Jace? Nobody really said how come she had possessed him because he did not have all the Shadowhunter protections they are given at birth, the ceremony performed to them, they just skimmed over it, but whatever, right? No! But moving on.

Kyle

I was saying Jordan even before they said who he was. Oops, was that spoiler? I’m sorry I thought everyone had watched so far.

Heidi (?)

Heidi who should be Maureen, then again in the show they do what they want without looking too much into the facts from the books, and Maureen appeared only a thousand million moons ago and they did not give her the proper importance she had, so this is fine as well, I suppose. Heidi is just as crazy as Maureen eventually was, so that must count for something for the writers of the show.

Izzy’s Beau

What is up with the doctor? The mundane? We all know Izzy is awesome and does not discriminate in any account but I really did not get this, is it to eventually get her to the love of her life? Who we perfectly now who he is? I did not understand this character who I am having trouble even remembering his name, sorry not sorry.

New Relationships

The One that surprised but also made me say: Ooh!

Should I say it? I am going to, you probably watched all the episodes already, but Luke and Maryse, I mean they clicked straightaway with one look across the bar. Yes, we all know that this is a total lie and Luke from the books has eyes for no one but Jocelyn, who is still alive! In the books that is. But this was fine, I said: Sure, what the hell? No problem. 

Izzy and her new one

Dinner with this guy, who I still cannot remember his name nor am I trying to remember. Really I did not understand this at all.

New Institute Guy

Ugh! I spent the whole time thinking: He won’t do it, right? Alec would not do that. And he did not, thank the Angel because I would had been truly upset if something would had happened.

Alright I am done for the moment, there is more to come, I am watching all episodes without stop now and want to catch up with the story so far. Stay tunned for more, Angels!

shadowhunters tv season 3

If you have watched the episodes so far, up until these ones that I mentioned, let me know and no spoiler on the comments, don’t be mean to the other readers. I hope you enjoyed and please feel free to look at the rest of the stories on the blog.

Happy reading!

Queen of Air and Darkness

Author: Cassandra Clare

The Dark Artifices #3

Genre: YA, Supernatural, Fantasy, Romance, Drama, Crying, Throwing the book across the room

This is not going to be easy, and I do not think it is going to be really short.

Last night I finished Queen of Air and Darkness (QOAAD from now on), if I had read it in December when it came out it would have been the Best Read of 2018, alas, it was not, it is the Best Read of 2019 so far, and unless The Red Scrolls of Magic is something incredibly amazing and even more epic, it will stay the best book, because Cassie Clare did it again, she went a step forward, she makes you want to be inside the book, inside the Shadow World, be part of a family, be part of a world that you only know through words on paper, it was awesome.

The Bane Chronicles: What Really Happened in Peru

The Bane Chronicles 

Authors: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan

Illustrator: Cassandra Jean

Genres: YA. Fantasy

How do you write a review about a book this size without losing some of its charm on the way? I do not know, so I decided to do it story by story, because I can and because every story in The Bane Chronicles deserves to have a little piece here.

Shadowhunters so far and Malec

Here we are guys!

Let’s do this while it is still fresh… my sole reaction to THAT moment in the latest episode of Shadowhunters was… Oh. My. God!

 As for the rest I was still in shock but the excitement was still there.

Now, let us retreat a little in time to the other episodes, I know I haven’t posted much about the rest, but I was really busy… Simon, is already a vampire, that is kind of fast… Alec proposing to someone who does not exist was a bit crazy, the world inverted was kind of cool but still out of this world (no joke intended)… and I think it will give the producers of the show something to go on for when they get to more exciting things, like what happens in book 5 and when they introduce us Sebastian. Spoiler much? Not really, if you are a fan of the saga then you know what I am talking about.

Shadowhunters: ‘Dead Man’s Party’

So, here we are once again. I cannot keep it to myself… but don’t worry this one will be short.

Alright… I’m going to say it, I love the show, I admit it but why do they have to do unnecessary changes? I don’t understand! Camille a brunet? Come on! She is blond with green eyes, is that so difficult? Hey, the actress is good and all, but it’s the details people, the details.

Simon, Simon… I can’t say anything that I haven’t already, to me that character is nearly nonexistent, yes, he does stuff in the books, and he is important and what is coming his way, well, we all know where it is heading, if you read the books you know what I’m saying, if not, is pretty obvious. But the point here is, that he is in the scene and I feel like I should like him or have some sort of affinity but I really don’t.

Shadowhunters TV Show Review: Ep 1 and 2

Alright, here we go.

First off, I love Matthew Daddario, I thought that Kevin Z was Alec, but Matthew gives another meaning to bringing to life a character from a book, he studied Alec, you can tell by the way he acts (and if he didn’t then he wings it to perfection), and it is not just that he is a good enough actor, no, you actually believe Alec is there, just like Emeraude Toubia does Izzy, haven’t seen much of it, but the bits and parts of it, she gets the idea and she looks the part as well.

Yes, we are first talking about the actors and actresses, don’t worry, I’ll get to the good stuff soon enough. Carrying on with Alberto Rosende, so, he kind of is Simon but I personally am not a fan, yet. Wasn’t a fan of Simon in the books but hey, that is my personal prerogative. And maybe that is why I simply ignore Simon in the show  because in the books that is what I did. Sorry, guys!

Special Edition: About Shadowhunters TV Cast…

I simply have to do this… Because if I don’t, then I might explode… We love The Immortal Instruments and we (fans) are hoping for the TV Series to begin in 2016, and while we do that…. Nothing, there is only this ‘at the edge of your seat’ feeling that won’t go away. The have casted some good actors, I might not agree with All of their choices but I am determined to give them all the benefit of the doubt, well there is one with whom I don’t have to do that because I am certain he’ll be great. If you haven’t read the books, I shall remind you to do so immediately because I am not holding back here…

Cast…

Katherine McNamara and Alberto Rosende will be our star and her childhood friend (I’m sorry is that spoiler? Don’t think so everyone should have read the books by now, at least one); Dominic Sherwood (Benefit of the doubt), Emeraude Toubia (BOTD), and Matthew Daddario will be portraying our lovely group of young Shadowhunters siblings (Again… this is for the fans). And Harry Shum Jr. (The one I look forward to…) will be portraying, bringing to life, making us think that a hot warlock from Brooklyn is possible, Harry as Magnus Bane, which I admit make me very happy in case you didn’t notice, I have high hopes for Harry I think he will be awesome…

City of Heavenly Fire

The Mortal Instruments #6

Author: Cassandra Clare

Apparently, I didn’t write a post about the most amazing, awesome book in The Mortal Instruments Series.

Whoa, anyone would think I didn’t LOVE this book. Now you know, I did. It was great, I remember I would stay up late reading, I would wake up and read… think about it when I wasn’t reading it. Wish for Magnus to be on every freaking page but he wasn’t and that’s alright, Jace was or Izzy or Alec… I’m not a big fan of some but hey that doesn’t really matter, the best ones are still there.

The Mortal Instruments

By Cassandra Clare

Where to begin? Once upon a time, oh wait! That’s not it.

The Mortal Instruments, these books were first recommend by a friend a long long time ago, I didn’t listen to his recommendations not in the slightest, he even sent me the books (Yes Ebook reader here, in case you didn’t know), I was like “Yes, I’ll read them” and then I would add a muttered: Someday.

I was so mistaken then, The Mortal Instruments are great, please do not let the movie trick you, they gave it a good try with that and we fans hope they do better with the TV Series, the movie has three great things: Jamie Campbell Bower, Jonathan Rhys Meyer, Aidan Turner. Oh! Make that 4 things with Lena Headey. So yes, it could have been awesome if they had known who would be watching the movie. Done with that. The rest of the actors were alright too but the books are so much better, really done now. The so-called review starts now.
