“There was blood on the Council dais, blood on the steps, blood on the walls and the floor and the shattered remnants of the Mortal Sword.”
“Blood always matters, to the wrong sort of people”
“Sympathy is common. Knowing the exact shape of the hole someone’s loss leaves in your heart is rare.”
“All this time we were waiting for you. We loved each other, and it was a great thing, but with you, it is even greater.”
“I love you. I love you. I love you.”
“No shining new world could be built on blood and bones.”
“There is nothing simple about vengeance, and nothing pure”
“Please don’t leave me in this world without you.”
“As long as you exist and I exist, I will love you.”

“The sky was a road and the stars made pathways; the moon was a watchtower, a lighthouse that led you home.”
“I whisper your name, Ty. I whisper the most important thing:
I love you. I love you. I love you.
“Grief can be so bad you can’t breathe, but that’s what it means to be human. We lose, we suffer, but we have to keep breathing.”
“Be good, my archer boy. Come back to me.”
“You might be in the cage, Jules, but as long as you are like this, I am in the cage with you.”
“If aught but death part thee and me, Emma,” he said, and pressed his lips to the strands. Emma closed her eyes as she whispered, “Julian. Julian. If aught but death part thee and me.”
ESTA RESEÑA CONTIENE LIGEROS SPOILERS. LA PARTE DE SPOILERS SE ENCUENTRA DEBIDAMENTE INDICADA.
· Cada personaje tiene su momento, su trama, sus conflictos y su final.
· Hay cambios en el universo que asientan bases más que interesantes para la última saga de todas.
· La escritura de Cassandra Clare es detallada, su libro vibra, te hace conectar muchísimo.
· La situación política está increíblemente bien representada y tratada. Podría hasta decir que esta novela es la primera de todas en tener ese toque de subtrama de thriller político.
· Ty, Kit, Magnus, Alec, Jace, Clary, Dru, Diana, Diego, Jaime, Cristina, Mark, Kieran, Helen, Aline, Jia, Jem y Tessa.
· A veces, ciertos conflictos se resuelven demasiado rápido.
· Emma y Julian y sus maldita maldición. ¡Pesados! (Aunque el tema de cómo se rompe y demás me ha gustado mucho.)
· El ritmo no es siempre el mismo, y aproximadamente hacia el ecuador de la novela, cuesta un poco más avanzar.
· El final no es tan cliffhanger como estamos acostumbrados.
His whole life had been built around exerting control over himself, over the mask he showed the world, and now it was cracking.
“Without sorrow, there can be no joy."
“Shadowhunters are slow to love,” she said, “but once we love, we love forever.”

"Without sorrow, there can be no joy."
“And when one day people look back on me and what my life meant, I don’t want them to say, ‘Alec Lightwood fought in the Dark War’ or even ‘Alec Lightwood was Consul once.’ I want them to think, ‘Alec Lightwood loved one man so much he changed the world for him.’ ”
“Okay, let’s talk about the important part.” Magnus turned to Alec with a furious look on his face. “You killed yourself? Why would you do that?”
Alec looked startled. “That wasn’t me,” he pointed out. “It’s an alternate universe, Magnus!”
Magnus grabbed Alec by the front of his shirt. “If I die, you are not allowed to do anything like that! Who would take care of our kids? How could you do that to them?”
“We never had kids in that world!” Alec protested.
“The Children of Lilith will indeed be in debt to the Children of the Courts after this day, Kieran Kingson,” said Magnus, staring intently in what he clearly thought was Kieran’s direction.
“That was a very nice speech, Bane,” said Jace. “Unfortunately, you’re talking to a doughnut.”
Manuel made a sputtering noise. “Kill them,” he said, turning to his companions. “Go on. Kill them.”
Jace drew the third in a line of X’s on the ground and tossed aside his stick. “Checkmate,” he said.
“Checkmate is chess,” Clary pointed out, entirely ignoring the Cohort surrounding them.
Jace grinned. It was a bright, beautiful grin, the sort of grin that made Helen understand why, all those years ago, Aline had kissed him just to see. “I wasn’t talking about our game,” he said.
At the edge of everything, love and faith have always brought me back.
