2021 reread- Returning to my comfort reads while life starts changing around me! I love the Shadowhunter series, and while this first book has it's flaws, it was the beginning of something great.

I enjoyed this book while I was reading it. It is well written, entertaining, and engaging. However, the major plot twists at the end turned me off, to the point that I really have no interest in continuing the series.

WELL DAMN. EFF ME SIDEWAYS WITH A LUNCHBOX THIS WAS EVENTFUL. The beginning was so slow that i considered DNFing this but i pushed through [thanks, Emma] and by the end i was going through the motions of heartbreak and i was ready to die. The last 150 pages were worth it!!!! Would definitely recommend!!!! Now i need to watch the FREAKING SHOW
