I really enjoyed this series (first two books reviewed here and here). It had action, romance, and twists and turns throughout. While I actually saw the big surprise a long way off (which may have been Clare's intention), I didn't lose interest in the story for a moment. The conclusion is satisfying and the descriptive writing is beautiful. I was really impressed that Clare wrote such a compelling teen story in the popular urban fantasty style with so little mrg-content. She proves very well that it can be done.
Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
Twilightseries by Stephenie Meyer
a bit like A Great and Terrible Beautyand sequels by Libba Bray
Remarkably few for the type of book it is.
There were a few suggestive parts, but they stayed simply suggestive, nothing more.
There is some violence and fighting described, not in detail.
Overall rating: *****
