This was my first Cassandra Clare. I really enjoyed the language and the action. There were characters I liked, characters I didn't like and characters I still don't know if I liked. Honestly Charlotte and Henry were two people I do not know what to do with. For some reason I think I would have liked them more if I had met them while standing on my head. Not sure why I feel that way, maybe because we are never really given their motivations.
There were a lot of questions asked that were not answered. I would hope they are going to be answered within the next books. This has made me a little annoyed I don't have the second book on hand to see if any of them were answered.
