If you don't like this series, why read it? It's quite simple really... It's really really really rare for me to give up on a book/series. I read it til the end! even if the book is a complete pile of crap! Now this book was a frexing brick! Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with big books. But if you're going to write a big book YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT INTERESTING! This book was soooooooooooooooooo boring! It took so much of my willpower to read it til the end! I'm very tempted to give this book just 1 frexing star! That's all this series deserves! (but I have a feeling all the crazy fans will shot me down for that) I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY IT'S SO FREXING POPULAR! And sadly I am going to torture myself with the next book... Wish me luck.(less)

This book gets the award for "The Book That Caused Me The Most Emotional Trauma"! In that case, this book made me so emotional, that I am incapable of forming a coherent review. Let's just say that this book definitely has all the feels.
BEFORE READING: ANOTHER EDIT: So I saw that Cassandra is writing a new series after this... (which I find slightly annoying since it seems that she can't write anything that is not about the shadowhunters) But anyway... The main characters last name is Carstairs!!! That's Jem's last name!!!!!!!!!!!! That's right! JEM IS GOING TO SURVIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In case you didn't realize yet... I really really want Jem to survive!
EDIT: THE COVER IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *screams of joy*
Original "review": Why does everyone seem to be on team Will? Am I the only one on team Jem? Don't get me wrong, they're both awesome, but if Tessa choose Will it would be a little bit too much like Jace in the mortal instruments. I was happy when Tessa and Jem were supposed to get married but I couldn't help feeling sorry for Will... I mean believing that everyone you love will die only to found out that the curse wasn't real and that the girl you love is going to marry your best friend That's harsh Just plain harsh
I would probably be okay if Will wins in the end (because like I said they're both awesome and that's also probably going to happen anyway) But there is also news that Jem might die in this book....
DON'T DIE, JEM! DON'T DIE! DON'T DIE! DON'T DIE!!!!! IF JEM DIES THERE WILL BE WORLD HUNGER! THE SUN WILL GO OUT! THE UNIVERSE WILL BLOW UP INTO BITS!!!! DO NOT DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
... Okay I'm calmer now
anyway... I absolutely hate it when a major character dies (who doesn't) There's another book series that I read with a love triangle where one of the guys died a few chapters from the end of the series just so Calla didn't have to choose between two guys!!!!!!!! I wasn't on either team in that series but I cried when he died because I thought both of the dudes as awesome. But now I hate myself for wasting my time with that book series, I realize that not all young adult books have good endings, and I want to stab Andrea Cremer with a frozen breadstick.
The moral of this story is... DO NOT BE ANDREA CREMER!!

*sighs* let's hope Lost Souls will be better(less)
