Crystal I really wanted to read this one, what did you think?

Rosanne I like your point about the 'anti-girl' girl, nothing wrong with being girly at all. It is almost as if in going there the author(s) are making up for a lack of ability to create a complex character i.e. feminine and 'tough', interesting in high and low culture at the same time, etc.

Also thought of Blood and Chocolate when I read the synopsis of this one.

Sandra I agree about Ren, totally hot. I liked Shay too but Ren had a definite appeal and I felt really bad for him cuz if Shey hadn't come along I think Calla could have been happy with him (of course that's ignoring the whole enslavement thing).

Morganofthesea Here is why despite that I think a lot of the characterization in The Mortal Instruments was meh I loved Isabelle Lightwood for being a tough badass girl who loves her some dresses and high heels. I wanted to hit Calla, with a truck, I've always been a tomboy but I now cant get off my standard 4 to 7 in. Heels and can appreciate pretty clothes

message 5: by Em (new) - rated it 3 stars

Em I think it's ok for Calla to be a tomboy because there were feminine characters that were portrayed in a positive light-like Bryn. I think Shay may have the "forbidden" appeal to Calla, considering she has had to follow strict rules her whole life.

Rena What bothered me the most was her freaking weak willed mother. She was suppose to be an alpha female wolf? Yeah right. That bitch was the weakest piece of shit ever.
