I really wish I had read this while I was in the process of reading either the MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series or the INFERNAL DEVICES. It was not nearly as interesting as it would have been were I still invested in the characters and their lives.
I must say I did still enjoy all of the humor, particularly Simon’s comments on Clary and Jace’s relationship. I also like the fact that they are “annotating” this book from the perspective of what happens later on in the series, after some major plot events (for this reason, I do not recommend you read this until you have finished TMI) because there were a few moments of “wow… how were we so naïve?”
I know this was pretty short, and I’m sorry, but this is pretty much all I had to say.
I gave THE SHADOWHUNTER’S CODEX by Cassandra Clare and Joshua Lewis 4 out of 5 stars.
