With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadow-hunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he's willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City — whatever the cost?
Finally, it’s come down to the battle of the century, who’s going to be the victor (Shadow Hunters or Downworlders or maybe both). This was a fantastic ending to a great series. This book has everything humor, action, romance, suspense. We finally get our question answered: So is Clary and Jace really brother and sister? Well, let me just say “my my my” I won’t go into the details you will have to find out for yourself. Cassandra introduces us to a new character that goes by the name of Sebastian, well who is this mystery guy and could he be the link to all puzzles? Oh! I have to mention Alec and Magnus, and I have to say “I absolutely adore them”.
The writing and plot is exceptional. Cassandra Clare continues to surprise me with the plots and twist. I was so enthralled I had to know what’s going to happen and ended staying up in the wee hours of the night to finish the book. I’m sad to see that this is the last installment to the Mortal Instrument Series, but we have more to look forward to with the Infernal Devices Series next year. ...more
The Demon’s Lexicon is Sarah’s debut novel and I just have to say “WOW!” She did a fantastic job. Let’s start with the writing – Beautifully written –The Demon’s Lexicon is Sarah’s debut novel and I just have to say “WOW!” She did a fantastic job. Let’s start with the writing – Beautifully written – I ate up every word and found myself ensnared in Brennan’s world with sword swinging – knife throwing bad boy Nick (I love my bad boys) & gun slinging charismatic Alan as the Ryves brothers try to outrun evil Magicians and Demons. I did not want to put this book down for 1 minute. I carried it everywhere and tried to get sneaks in when I could, let’s just say I’m addicted now. The characters are well developed and I did not feel like I was lacking anything from the characters – I came to understand them on every level and what it is that makes them tick.
I love books that have witty banter and comic relief and The Demon’s Lexicon did not disappoint. I don’t know how many times I laughed at a remark in this book and they just kept on coming. I think I’ve found a new character to jones on. “How about it Nick? Please turn that wicked smile on me!” I mean look at that mouth - me thinks it’s wicked!
The plot is fantastic and will keep you glued to the pages. There are plenty of twists and unsuspected turns in this book that will have you begging for more by the end. There is one revelation that had my eyes bulging and my mouth on the floor because I suspected something entirely different than what I got. I won’t go into details, so you'll have to find out for yourself. The Ryves brothers are loveable and I can’t wait to go on another adventure with them. So until then, I’ll have to find something else to tickle my fancy.
I highly recommend The Demon’s Lexicon, you won’t be disappointed!

Well it doesn’t get any better for Billi when a war is brewing in her city. Billi may have to sacrifice her wants and needs for the greater good to save humanity from an Ancient who’s after one of the Order’s protected treasures and if unleashed will bring about the 10th plague…
Can Billi and fellow Knights Templar stop this powerful enemy and his ban of Unholy from unleashing this evil on London when death is only one knock at her door…?
Sarwat creates a dangerous world full mystifying characters with action-packed and adrenaline pumping scenes. With its sinister and tension filled plot, Devil’s Kiss kept me turning the pages. Devil’s Kiss is filled with rich biblical history and Sarwat did an amazing job linking the pieces to the story. The creatures in this book are sinister indeed with ghuls, devils, and dark angels providing Devil’s Kiss with notable foes for the Knights Templar to protect the world against.
Billi is this bad-ass heroine who knows what she wants and will stop at nothing to get it even if it could possibly lead to her death. I love the characters in Devil’s Kiss. Sarwat created some powerful and unforgettable characters and their struggles to do what’s right for the greater good left a lasting impression. Kaye was a welcomed surprise and I was in awe of him from the first time he was introduced. Arthur, Billi’s dad and master of the Templar Knights was something straight out of RAMBO except with a sword. I can only describe him with one word – "RUTHLESS." He’s the essence of what a leader has to deal with in the face of destruction especially when you have millions of lives at stake.
Sarwat’s Devil’s Kiss story line is PERFECTION! I was kept on the edge of my seat. It’s a thrilling and powerfully entertaining tale and I was extremely wrapped up in the chaos that surrounded Billi’s and the Templar’s lives right down to the very last page.
The Dark Goddess is the next installment in this series and I can’t wait to see what the Unholy unleashes next to grab hold of Billi’s and the Knights Templar’s attention…
If you’re a big fan of Supernatural & Buffy, I think you’ll enjoy the Devil’s Kiss!
