The story itself was an interesting concept, but the writing techniques were flawed. Halfway through the author changes writing style and than back again making the flow of the book seem choppy. The characters, felt to me stereotyped and weak. I would strongly suggest that parents read before giving to young children as it describes and incestous relationship bewteen the main character and her brother. Its flaws aside the book is fast paced and won't leave a reader bored. I'd recomend for a mature teenager who only reads a few books a year and not an avid more

The author went all out with this supposidly last installment of 'The Mortal Instrument series.' I say supposidly because I read recently that there will in fact be a fourth book. From the moment you pick this book up, the action begins, picking up where it left off in the second book. Once coming to a complete circle, you will feel totally and utterly satisfied with the way the book is finished. Lots of action, suspence and mind boggling questions; are they or aren't they? Leave you wondering and guessing what's going to happen throughout the next pages. It's nothing short of thrilling and wonderful. The only let down, is not having enough time with the two love birds once they're together. But I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of them in the coming more
