Cassandra Clare's word-building is always effortless. That is a given. Her characters ring true, each distinct and vibrant in their own way. Somehow, her characters each feel like immediate friends, on the page at least, and I need to follow them through their rough journey ahead.

Not having read her before, I was nonetheless pulled right into her world. No, that is untrue. I was grabbed and, like James when he slipped for a moment into the Shadow world, it was utterly beyond my control. What IS under my control is to finish reading the rest of Chain of Gold, which has now moved to the tippy-top of my TBR list.
