I will openly admit that it has taken me until this year to make it through all the Shadowhunters novels. This being the latest series I wanted to catch up before I got here. And I am very glad that I started from the beginning and went all the way through because there are a lot of connections, Easter eggs, and back story for the newer books included. I would have been lost if I hadn't spent the time to read up.
The story itself was well written and I found myself liking the side characters more than the main ones. I am interested to see where it will go and how this will tie into the mortal instruments and beyond books since this is an inbetween series.
The cover is absolutely beautiful and if you liked any Shadowhunters you should buy this.
