    ARC given to me by my amazingly kind friend - Heather at Bookables!✨ My reading vlog for this entire book, and my entire process of annotating, taking notes, and writing this very review, is live on my BookTube channel! Its a classic love story. I hit on him at a party, he asked me out, then we fought an epic magical battle between good and evil side by side, and now we need a vacation. The Red Scrolls of Magic is the story that Magnus and A...

    This was a really cute and fun introduction to a murder-mystery-ish fantasy series about four gays teaming up to save the world and personally, I really love that for meAline and Helen are useless lesbian culture and Alec and Magnus and Aline and Helen are mlm/wlw solidarity and I think thats wonderful. I think Im appreciating the dynamic between these two characters more and more over time. I love that Magnus is outwardly so confident and done-i...

    the fact that we have been given a whole book of Malec is a GIFT and I am in appreciation right now. I think it's set after City of Fallen Angels, so it was a bit of a throwback too and heartily reminded me that (1) I really need to reread TMI because I remember so little lolol, and (2) I've missed the old crew so much! Isabel and Jace only spoke to Alec on the phone through this, but like the warm feelings of tHE OLD SQUAD just made me happy.| P...

    (Warning: I get very angry in this review. If you don't like anger and/or criticism towards CC then kindly skip, thanks)Listen, Magnus Bane is one of my favorite characters of all time. Even though I don't like Cassandra Clare and I strongly disagree with her writing, I just really love Magnus.I don't particularly like Malec, because I hate big age differences in relationships, especially queer ones.It's a stereotype and it's awful and predatory....

    Out today, people!!!4.5WHAT THE WHAT?! That ending....???!?!?!It literally pains me that I can't add quotes to this review but hey, I get it, it's an ARC and things are subject to change. Just know that I was highlighting like crazy the last 25%.---I can't lie, when I first found out that Cassie was writing ANOTHER series based in the Shadowhunter world, I was a little peeved. I mean I love Magnus, I really do, but I was just like "how much longe...

    My actual rating is more 4.75 but I love Malec so we're bumping it up to 5 stars. This was the best thing to happen to Malec shippers ever. It was adorable and so queer and so fun and I loooooved it. Magnus and Alec are pure and should be protected at all costs. Also, we got Aline and Helen's origins and that's truly all we could want. The only criticism I'd give is that the plot wasn't as strong as other Shadowhunter books, but I kind of liked t...

    A warrior chosen by angels and a well-dressed demon's child, in love and intent on adventure through Europe. What could go wrong?I have so many quotes I want to use in this review and there's no way this is going to be long enough to use them all. Woe.It was very clear Alec had not been on a proper vacation before. He kept trying to plan the holiday as if they were going into battle.Anyway, it's been a long (long) time since I read CITY OF BONES ...

    disclaimer: i received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, this is no way impacted my review Alec had been right about the darkness waiting in Magnus, and the pain waiting with it. All that darkness, and all that pain, and Magnus was somehow still a blazing riot of life and color, a source of joy for everyone around him. He was the reason Alec looked a mirror now and saw a complete person who did not have to hide. The R...

    If only the world were a fairy tale, Nephilim.I have finally got around to my most anticipated release of 2019 and it really didnt disappoint! After the disaster that is Queen of Air and Darkness, I was really scared to read this but this reminded me of the Cassie Clare that Ive loved all along.Spoiler Free OverviewThis book takes place I believe during City of Fallen Angels, but definitely after the war in City of Glass. Its been so long since I...

    3.75 starsFull review hereI must say that I enjoyed this book a lot more than I had expected. Im not gonna lie, I wasnt very excited about this book, just because its set in the recent past and so I already know that theyre going to be fine and nothing major is going to happen to them. But I was pleasantly surprised because I found it enjoyable and also because I think this book laid the ground for the next two in the series. Alec and Magnus are ...

    Even though I tend to really like most books, I still try to be somewhat objective when reviewing them. Well, Im just going to throw all of that nonsense out of the window right now because this book is about Malec- meaning, there is absolutely no way that I was going to rate it less than 5 stars.

    Actual Rating: 4.5/5If you thought it was not possible to love Magnus and Alec any more, you were wrong! This book was not really anything special story-wise. Taking place between City of Glass and City of Fallen Angels, it couldn't be anything completely epic or we would have heard about it before. It reads a lot like her short stories such as those in Ghosts of the Shadow Market and The Bane Chronicles, as filler. But at 350 pages it gives you ...
