Since hearing about Lady Midnight, we haven’t been as excited as a lot of people. The Mortal Instruments series was the best thing, and after Bee didn’t enjoy The Infernal Devices trilogy, we wondered how we’d get on with this sequel series. When we read City of Heavenly Fire,  getting chapters about Emma and Julian was just distracting us from the baes we really cared about. But, we’d already read about them, so why not get their story, five years on?

I already know I love the Shadowhunter world, and Cassandra Clare is great at writing diverse characters and making them mesh together. Henry and Charlotte are so far my favourite characters of the series. More of them please.

Everyone likes a little controversy, right?
