I finished it. I don't know what to do with my life any more. Feels like the end of an era for me.
I wanted to know how it ended but didn't want the journey to ever end.
Granted, it's not a perfect book, perhaps because the ending was a bit too perfect (in some ways) for the main characters, and Clare manages to give them all happy endings where all their problems are resolved a bit too conveniently.
However, although it made me sad, I was pleasantly surprised that (view spoiler)[ the Endarkened weren't able to be saved, that they remained dead and there wasn't some way of reversing their state - because I was so sure they would be made human again (hide spoiler)]
And Sebastian: (view spoiler)[ I thought I wouldn't get feels but I did. I really felt sorry for him, and Jocelyn and Clary, for what they could've had (hide spoiler)]
It's also really obvious she's setting up threads and plots for her next series, which I kinda don't mind because I NEED MOAR. And it'll be cool to see the characters from this book older, and not the main characters, in the latter series. Also all dem Clockwork Princess feels. <3
I need to re-read City of Lost Souls. It's been two years and I don't remember much. :(
It was torture waiting two years for Clockwork Princess
even though City of Lost Souls
came out a year before, to break up the wait. So now that Clockwork Princess
is out and The Infernal Devices
is completed, I'd hate to imagine the pain and anguish of waiting a year for City of Heavenly Fire
oh wait I'm feelin' it right now
And just the foreshadowing implied in the epilogue of Clockwork Princess
MAKES IT SO MUCH HARDER.
I just can't even--.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
