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.

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy

Authors: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Ress Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman

Genre: Short Stories, Fantasy, Young Adult

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.

No Snippet No Preview for Me: Queen of Air and Darkness

Call me crazy if you must but I do not want to know what is going to happen in the book, what could happen, what Mark or Kit or Ty will be suffering or discovering, I rather wait for the book and find out then because then the excitement will be out of me, I will know that something is coming, that at some point what I read a month before will happen. I do not want that at all.

For the Book Review of Queen of Air and Darkness go here.

Lord of Shadows Review

I will first give you, the unedited review, this is what I felt and thought when I first finished the book. Be wary, it contains so many spoilers you will have to jump to the end of it, where I said it is good and nothing else, if you do not want to know what happens at the end of the book. You have been warned.

Shadowhunters Season 2

Episodes 01 to 05

Alright, here we go!

First let me eat a piece of chocolate and relax for a sec, then we will start this off…

Ok, I’m good to go!

It was all going so well, Shadowhunters was back, everyone looks AMAZING, the new characters are all very nice and then… Episode 4 happened! And my reaction was not normal, I spent the rest of that ep wondering what was going on and why were they doing such a thing, and then it was over and then Episode 5 happened and I did not know whether to wait for Malcolm Fade to appear at any moment or for the Angel to suddenly burst into the screen and awe us with its presence, alas none of that happened. Now, from here on there might be some major spoilers if you have not read the books or watched the show ever, so I suggest some caution.

Just to be clear: All that I write next is for the good of letting it all out of my mind and chest but I love Shadowhunters the show and all its actors and actresses.

About Sebastian aka JCM

If you have not read The Mortal Instruments books from City of Glass onward then please restrain yourself from reading this post… it is so full of spoilers that you might have no need of reading the books to know one of the most psychotic characters ever created in the Shadow World. Kudos to Cassie Clare for having such imagination as to come up with Sebastian.

Alright you have been warned, and I am to assume you will know what I’m about to talk about or simply don’t care about the spoiler alert I just gave! Once more, Spoilers ahead. By the Angel! Read knowing that I tried to warn you.
