Ok, this is good. This is profound. This is deep and serious and heartfelt. This book just got another star from me. Good job, Hannah Moskowitz.

Yay, gynophobia! I used to have this friend who was a gay man and he always seemed to revel in walking up to me and telling me how disgusted he was by my genitalia, and when I'd tell him to fuck off, he would say, "I DON'T LIKE PUSSY OKAY? OKAY, YOU BITCH?!" It's just this awesome thing where cis gay men think that it's okay to be extreme misogynists (and transphobes!) as if gayness cancels out their male privilege.

My complete inability to relate to any aspect of Karou had been a persistent problem with me throughout this entire series. I relate to and outright love Eliza more than I do Karou, and there have been about...what, three scenes with her so far? I'm already extremely invested in Eliza. I want more of her. I want all of her. I want her instead of perfect flawless amazing Karou and that says a lot.

I also love how gender roles in labour have survived beyond the apocalypse, so that the men dig holes and the women do laundry.

And the explanation for why is flimsy at best.

I do not believe for a second that the whole camp would just stand by and watch a large adult man beat up a skinny teenage girl. No, not buying it.

This man who is threatening Penryn with rape apparently smells like "lust and violence". Can we stop associating rape with lust please? It is not about lust, for god's sake. It is about hatred and power and control. When you attribute it to lust it becomes an argument of "well, she was just too irresistable" or "it's not his fault she was too pretty". Also it ignores that it's straight men who rape other men.

I'm not 84% done, Goodreads. Stop with the percentages. Cool your jets.

Oh my god, are you serious. Now Penryn's mom is a cannibal. This ableism is out of control.

If Penryn does not stop comparing her mentally ill mother to an animal then I might be forced to spill EVEN MORE coffee all over this book. The way mental illness is portrayed in this book is absolutely abhorrent. Alas, I can't stand this book sitting on my shelf unread anymore, but I'm not going in with a single expectation of greatness on my THIRD ATTEMPT at slogging through it.

Why the hell don't they just tell Akiva and Liraz that Thiago is actually Ziri? This ruse is only to fool the chimaera, not the seraphim.

This is literal bullshit. Tessa and Jem are having a conversation about Emma and as someone who has not read TID and who does not intend to, their conversation has absolutely no meaning to me. I have no idea who these characters are and it's cheeky, to assume that everyone had read TID, or that everyone should, in order to understand what the fuck is being said here. Tessa and Jem are strangers to me.

Actually cannot believe how young these characters are. It's fucking weird as shit that Jace is only 16, and that only a few months have passed since COB. The relationships seem so insane and rushed when you look at the actual timeline.

Wow. This is actually pretty sad. And kudos for not having Jace be the star of the show again.

The jokes in the middle of dire life or death situations are getting ridiculous. There's nothing wrong with a little humour, nothing, but this is nonsense.

Every single moment that's supposed to be deep and profound and chilling in this book just ends up being so ham-fisted and clumsy. There's just no sincerity, subtlety or finesse to it. Also, CC has no idea how to write dialogue. Dialogue does not have semi-colons, for starters.

The Emma chapters are PAINFUL. I do not give a fuck, okay? I do not give a fuck about Emma. I'm not even skimming them anymore. I'm all out skipping over them. I DO NOT GIVE A FUCK.

Yeah, I'm going to get really sjw with this review. Clare seems to love using her faux-social justice to shut up fans who have legitimate concerns about the problematic nature of her books (such as the characters' flippant reactions to rape and murder, and the romanticization of dating violence) so I'm going to counter argue her bullshit by treating this like a gender studies dissertation. Enjoy.

If it turns out that Jace is the one to kill Sebastian, then I'm going to be furious. Clary is the one who has suffered the most from actions completed directly by Sebastian, and Jace being the one to deliver the blow will completely strip her of agency. There's also the fact that he tried to rape her, and if Jace then kills him, it's another rape in fiction being used as motivation for a man's quest. We'll see.

Sebastian is such a caricature. And the deaths that we were all freaking out over are so minor and pointless. Clare is hyped up to be such a risqué author but she never takes a chance or rocks her own boat. This book is a safe, safe book and I find that incredibly disappointing.

"Her skin is the color of moonstones and the nails on her long fingers are polished gems". That's...yeah. That's pretty bad, guys. That's some bad, bad writing.
