Ok, so I'm late to the game with this one. The movie is coming out in August and I decided to read the book. I liked it. It was fast-paced and interesting. I liked the characters and the story. It's not the OMG IT'S SO GOOD that The Hunger Games was, but it's more along the Twilight "It's enjoyable I'll keep reading" good.
SPOILER ALERT!!! DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK
However, with all that said, at the end of the book when Clary confronts Valentine and Jace is there and we discover that Clary and Jace are brother and sister? Yeah, I threw up in my mouth a little bit. And said EWWWWWWWWWW really loudly. And gaged. And squirmed in my seat. Then made more retching sounds.
My favorite movie may be The Empire Strikes Back and I love all thing Star Wars, but all that Luke and Leia share is a peck. A peck! No tongue! No hints at them destined to be soul mates! And absolutely not love. YECH. Seriously, I am so skeeved out by this, I don't want to read the rest of the books even if it turns out to be an elaborate hoax. Just the thought of it is too ... YUCK. I mean, if they had reacted like I am now, I might have been ok with reading more, but they are still so clearly in love and OMG IT'S YOUR SIBLING!!! Oh God, I'm gagging again just thinking about it...
So yeah, book 2? No thanks.
And to the author - way to ruin a book for me. Well done, you. Well done.
