I was a big fan of all the diversity in this series but I was a little disappointed that this seems to be one of those series where everyone gets paired up. It would have been really great if Kit and Ty for example could have just been best friends.
Plot wise, this book was a little better than the first but there was a big chunk of pages in the middle of the book that were pretty boring and it didn't really do much to the story. The beginning was really good and the ending was horribly sad but I could have skipped the entire middle and still been fine.
I really hope the next book does better because I really did love the first 3 books of the Mortal Instruments and it holds a special place in my heart. I keep hoping her other series will live up to it but so far I've mostly been disappointed.
