Yesterday, I just finished the series the dark artifices and let me tell you – I am destroyed. Cassandra clare’s books never fail to amaze. The infernal devices was my favourite now I am not too sure which one I love more. I finished Queen of Air and Darkness in about four days and that book is huge. I couldn’t put it down. I got so attached to the characters and when I finished the book, I just sat down and cried.
MAY BE SPOILERS!! BEWARE!
Queen of Air and Darkness picked up where Lord of Shadows ended off. I was only on the second page and I started to cry so so much. It is such a horrible leaving losing the one you love and if you see them getting like murdered. That is just something no one can overcome.
The first thing I want to talk about is the characters. When I tell you I fell in love with these characters, I FELL in love. I got so attached to them and I just miss them so much already.
Emma is just perfect, I literally adore her so much. She is one badass person, I’ll tell you that. Julian, my heart ripped into pieces especially when he made Magnus put that spell on him to not feel anything. That killed me because even when Ty wanted to talk to him he gave no emotion at all. Mark, Christina, and Kieran, I really do love these characters and I thought their relationship was weird at first but it caught onto me. (Has anyone noticed that there are just so many characters, so I am not going to talk about everyone) BUT the last two people I want to talk about is Ty and Kit. Oh my gosh, I think these two were my favorites in the book, I love them to death and I wish I could have seen more of them.
The relationships and plot
Okay so, Julian and Emma. My heart broke for them for basically the full book. You could tell how much they loved each other and to be forbidden to be together could possibly be the hardest thing. I am so happy they got a happy ending. It made me upset when Julian turned off his feelings, like that broke me so much. It couldn’t stand loving Emma and not being able to have her.
Mark, Christina, and Kieran. At first, I thought this relationship was weird, I didn’t like it at first but then I started to open up about it more. They all did love each other so much and I thought it was so cute how protective they were of each other.
Ty and Kit… Okay I really need to express my feelings about this. I READ 870 PAGES AND I WANTED THEM TO GET TOGETHER AND NOTHING HAPPENED… which made me sad. You could tell they felt something for each other (unless that is just me) but they did care deeply for one another. I am also glad that Ty had someone else besides his sister. I didn’t like how at the end Kit left without even saying goodbye. I started balling.
I loved when they went into the faerie world. I think that world is so interesting and it was exciting to see all the different characters from the other novels too. I think my favourite part of the story was when Julian and Emma went to Thule. It was so cool to know how the world would have been if Jonathan didn’t get killed. I also loved how Livvy was in Thule and she was such a badass, she is so strong!
Anyway, I feel like I am rambling BUT this series is probably my favourite series and PLEASE if you’re thinking of reading it… DO IT!!
Have you read the dark artifices? If not, are you planning on it?
