A bit overrated

I have been putting Chain of Gold off because it is a CHONKER.

A LOT happens in this, so I'm just going ot cut to the chase:

Cordelia Carstairs returns ot London with her mother and brother in an attempt to prevent her family's ruin. Her mother wishes to marry her off to a prominent Shadowhunter family, but Cordelia has other ideas. she is reuinited with her childhood friends James and Lucie Herondale, but what cordelia feels for James is certainly more than friendship.

All the while, James is battling some demon-like powers passed down from his mother, and soon they learn that Lucie and James hale from a dark family legacy.

Overall, I enjoyed chain of Gold. There were parts of the book where I felt like it lacked a bit of oomph. I found hte first half of the book faster-paced. I also really did not like James. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to? But I much preferred Matthew!

Overall I enjoyed it and I'm interested to see what comes next!
