Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.
I wish I had written this review immediately after reading this book, but I didn’t and now I’m fuzzy on some of the events, but I rated it 5 STARS ***** because the ending was SO unexpected and makes the reader believe that it’s the end of the series-but IT CAN’T BE. The author must continue. There are unanswered questions and relationships are still not firm. ??????????? (head scratch) Cried and cried while reading the final few pages and couldn’t have written a review then if my life depended on it because my eyes were all red and swollen. Anyway ***** and I’ll be waiting for the next book.
