  • Emma Giordano
    Absolutely spectacular. A MUST READ for fans of the Shadowhunter Chronicles. Certain novellas from this series have fallen flat for me, but it’s stories like The Wicked Ones that steal my heart and remind me why these novellas are such a gift to us fans. So nuanced. So valuable. So tragic. I’m entirely enchanted.CW: child abuseI adored to opportunity to get to know Celine a.k.a. (view spoiler)[ Jace’s birth mother (hide spoiler)]. Through Y...

    "I sometimes think there is nothing more painful than love denied. To love someone you cannot have, to stand beside your heart’s desire and be unable to take them in your arms. A love that cannot be requited. I can think of nothing more painful than that."

    “They’d both given a piece of their hearts to a Herondale. And they both loved someone they could not have.” Oh, boy. So, this story is set in 1989 Paris, where we meet a young girl named Céline and get to see the uprising of Valentine. Céline has constantly run away from her abusive home, and the parents that torture her and call it love. And when she was eight years old, she ran away and felt safe and at home for the very first time ...

    This has just become my new favorite Shadowhunter short story. THE FEELS. THE REVELATIONS. 😭😭
  • Samhita Peechara {Multi Dreamer}⚔
    I'm literally only reading these because I have no other shadowhunter books to read. These novellas are okay so far and this one is the same. We get to know more about the herondale bloodline and if you have already read queen of air and darkness then there's spoilers in that one for this novella.

    I swear anytime the name Will Herondale pops up, my little heart just breaks.1. I love all the love for Jem, Tessa and Will2. Damn Herondales!3. We get to see the start(ish) of Valentine and that was interesting to see how calculated he is4. Low key felt sorry for Celine and you can see she's the way she is for many many reasons.5. A Salty Robert was great :) :)Son of the Dawn - 5 StarsCast Long Shadows - 3.5 Stars Every Exquisite Thing - 5 Stars...

    F yeah, we will finally have a decent Jace's mom backstory!Not that I'm desperately trying to remember the facts we already know about that group of friends! I have everything under control! *nervous laughter*

    "But who would she be, without pain? What was strength, if not the endurance of suffering?"  3.5 starsCharacters: Celine Montclaire, Brother Zachariah, Valentine Morgenstern, Robert Lightwood, Stephen Herondale, Rosemary Herondale, Jack CrowTW: references to child abuse, manipulationI have learned that I love Celine Montclaire. I wish Jace had gotten to grow up with her instead of Valentine because he would have had such a better childhood and h...
  • Suzanne
    I love these novellas. Only have one more to read for the Shadow Market series but I greedily want more. First off, as my GR peeps know, I’m a sucker for any mentioning of Gem and/or Will. This one had Gem playing a small role but was more about Celine (Jace’s mom) and how she fit into the circle and how It came about that Valentine got her Stephen Herondale (Jace’s father). It was nice to finally have the backstory. My quick and simple ove...

    I found the story in this novella quite interesting. It showed a lot about human nature especially with regards to Celine Montclaire. Getting insight into her life and her feelings was very interesting and heartbreaking.
  • Reem Ghabbany
    This story centered around Celine, Jace’s mother, I loved reading about her. Even though she’s a bit crazy lolAlso a big revelation is revealed. One that I did not anticipate!
  • Emma
    2.5 starsIn this novella we learn more about Céline’s life. I was never really interested in her story and this novella was no exception. Now we know how Céline and Stephen came to be but I could have done without this bit of information to be honest. The thing I always like about the novellas of the series is Jem. I love seeing what he's up to. This time he made a very interesting discovery that I did not expect. I read online that this disc...

    Questa novella mi ha ricordato per quale motivo la mia opinione su Céline, Stephen, Robert, Valentine e compagnia bella sia così bassa. No, scusate, di Valentine in quanto cattivo ho un'opinione molto alta, perché è sempre stato geniale, sono gli idioti di cui si è circondato ad essere idioti. Geniale.Ma tornando a Céline, l'ho sempre trovata una debole, senza spina dorsale e non le ho mai perdonato il fatto di essersi suicidata alla morte ...

    Oh my gosh. This was so unexpected.RTC
  • Areti
    This novella restored my faith to the Shadowhunter books. Interesting, fast paced and with amazing plot twists, this short story redeemed the two previous novellas.We follow Celine, Jace's mother, before she married Stephen Herondale. This novella informed about her life before the Circle, her crush on Stephen and her relationship with the other members of the Circle, especially the very manipulative Valentine Morgenstern. Celine is a tragic figu...
  • Ludodreamer
    Questa novella mi è sicuramente piaciuta molto di più rispetto alle ultime due!Di solito adoro sempre le novelle incentrate sul Circolo, e questa non è stata da meno. Infatti, l'ho apprezzata proprio perché si concentra sulla mamma di Jace, figura che rimane abbastanza marginale nei romanzi, in cui viene narrata solo l'ultima parte della sua storia. Invece, è stato interessante capire come sia arrivata a quel punto. Devo ammettere che, oltre...

    I have a feeling I say this every time, I know, I’m sorry. I just can’t help myself—I feel like this novella is the best one in this ‘series’ so far!We met two of the very interesting female characters who each made a huge impact on the whole Shadowhunter chronicles—Jace’s mother and Kit’s mother.Céline was one of those characters that I had kind of passively hated, mostly because the only other way we’ve been told about her wa...
  • Paola
    How far will you be willing to go in order to have the love of your life even when that sentiment is unrequited??? Well this book is about Celine Montclaire and her unrequited love for Stephen Herondale, about the decisions she has to make in order to have him even at the highest price.... I really enjoyed this companion novella set in the Shadowhunters World.
  • Jenny (Jen & Mel's Book Nook)
    We learn more about Celine in this novella and while her story was interesting I was not at all thrilled at having to read about Valentine. There were also some important reveals about the lost Herondale. Finally! Jem’s had quite the journey over the years and I’m hoping that it’ll all come into play in QoAaD!
  • Jelena Milenković
    Five stars for Jem and Tessa and the Herondale(s)butTwo stars for everything else, sadly.Céline let her pain and her insecurities dictate her instead of owning them, and that was her biggest mistake. I felt sorry for her, yes, but what she did at the end was not okay, was in fact unforgivable. She’s not that much better than Valentine, despite everything.Good thing Jace didn’t grow up with them. Neither of them.Though he did went through a s...
  • Tayla Robichaud
    Such a lovely little book. It was really interesting to learn about Jace’s parents. Especially since Stephen was married. It’s also nice to learn more about valentine as a young adult. And of course anything with Jem and Tessa I love
  • jessica ☾
    This novella just didn’t do it for me. I had never been particularly interested in learning more about Jace’s parents- but I can definitely see why this appealed to some who wanted their curiosities satisfied. Their were a few places where I thought the story would turn and become more enjoyable, but it quickly dove back into dull and boring for me. I wished I had enjoyed this more- better hopes for the next installment!
  • Angigames
    Stavolta la Clare c'ha azzecato! Oddio, non è la perfezione, ma visto i precedenti pensavo molto peggio!Mi è piaciuto da morire come ci ha presentato Celine, la madre di Jace. Celine, nei libri precedenti, era stata solo accennata, la sua tragica fine aveva segnato per sempre il destino del figlio. Ora, la ritroviamo 17enne, alle prese con il problema più grande di tutti: l’amore non corrisposto. E per poter avere quell’amore Celine, sarà...

    La autoestima debe saltarse una generación, sino no entiendo como Jace puede tener tanta y ser tan bueno cuando nació de esos padres y fue criado por Valentine.Siempre las historias cortas de Cassie que menos me llaman la atención son de mis favoritas.
