Review | Cassandra Clare's Lady Midnight
Lady Midnight didn't really wow me like TMI and TID. I was ready to read and fall in love with the world and the characters in the first book to the TDA universe. But I was somewhat disappointed.
These are some of the main reasons:
- Emma and Julian didn't have that allure that I have come to associate with Cassie.
- There was no Julian and Emma setting earlier in the book. There was only Emma and that was a bit boring. I don't know.
- I didn't like all the characters POV. I didn't like Christina, Mark and Kiernan's tale.
- Julian is made out to be this creature with a ruthless, wicked, calculating character but honestly I couldn't feel it through the pages and I have felt Cassie's characters earlier. We were told all this about him but weren't really shown it.
- I don't like Fairy's or Fae folk so that might have been what majorly caused my dislike but dunno this book fell short for me.
- Emma and Julian's storyline also felt not there. I didn't feel the feels I have come to feel with Cassie's love interests in her previous books. And I was so excited for this trope.
But this is Cassie writing and I couldn't discontinue and I love this world of Shadowhunters and I will keep whatever she gives us as I think I might be one of the few who loves that she isn't stopping with these books set in her vast world of Demon hunting.
