Opinion

My opinion was that the book was really good and that it made me really love the characters, and that all of the fighting scenes were written very nicely. And that the idea of Shadowhunters is cool and interesting.

Recommendation

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy with romance. Also people who like supernatural stuff like vampires, werewolves, and other ones like faeries. Also if someone who likes reading long series, or a series that continues with other characters.
