I've enjoyed every book that Cassandra Clare has written and this one is no different. The characters in this book are amazing with each one having their own story that really kept me interested the whole time with James and Cordelia being favorites. The romance in this book had me giggling but also crying, so much tension and angst which is what I like. The merry thieves and how close they are made me so happy and was so enjoyable to read. Clare perfectly balances the plot with the characters and their relationships without one ever overshadowing the other. I was kept on the edge of my seat the entire time needing to know what happens next. Seeing the infernal devices gang again and how they interact with their kids was one of my favorite parts and made me cry in nostalgia.
The writing in Chain of Gold was beautiful and poetic leaving me with so many quotes to remember. The ending left me speechless with the need for the sequel. Anyone who loves fantasy, mystery, friendship, and romance this is the book for you.
