The firelight illuminated his face, and Will could see that something seemed to shine through him: a sort of light that had not been there before. Jem had always shone, with fierce life and fiercer goodness, but this was something different.

Not gunna lie, I was expecting more Tessa and Jem in the book. And I understood that Cassandra wanted to introduce Emma and Julian, but I feel like they took over the plot a lot. Compared to Clary and Jace who just made out the entire book. Idk if I was the only one who also felt that Sebastian or Jonathan, kinda gave up towards the end. There defiantly could’ve have been a better way to end the series, especially because the next spinoff is going to not really include The Immortal Instrument characters. Gaaaah.

All love is precious. It is why we do what we do. Why do we fight demons? Why are they not fit custodians of this world? What makes us better? It is because they do not build, but destroy. They do not love, but hate only. We are human and fallible, we Shadowhunters. But if we did not have the capacity to love, we could not guard humans; we must love them to guard them.

Weapons, when they break and are mended, can be stronger at the mended places. Perhaps hearts are the same.
