Review: The book was great! Lots of action and suspense, cute romance, and likable characters that are very realistic. I really enjoyed this book. It kept me wanting to read more. I was highly disappointed in the end though. I like surprise endings and all, but this one just bothered me. I really like Jace and Clary together. I liked Jace pretty much from the beginning even though he is a jerk at times. He does have a good heart though, and he's so adorable. He reminds me of the type of guy I would totally have had a crush on in high school, but would never get. I found the ending to be so upsetting. I almost cried. I have a strong feeling I won't like the sequel as much. Here's hoping I'm wrong.
