The final, thrilling instalment in this extraordinary series from best-selling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. A generation ago, powerful mage Constantine Madden came close to achieving what no magician had ever achieved: the ability to bring back the dead. He didn't succeed...but he did find a way to keep himself alive, inside a young child named Callum Hunt. Facing up to what he is, Callum has battled chaos and evil across four years of magical training at the Magisterium, eventually defeating the armies of chaos in an epic battle. It came at a cost.

the authors could have done much more with the story line if had made it longer. it feels like a rushed story where they had ideas but didn't expand on any of them, i kept waiting for something exciting to happen and nothing came of it.

I think the plot for the book is an interesting one, however it should have been thought though better as i can already see a few plot holes, parts that didn't make sense and parts could have been written better.
The way the romance part of the story is written sucks, it was too rushed and there was no real chemistry between the characters.

I can't put my finger on it, but I felt something was missing, I didn't feel the excitement of wanting to know what happens next that i felt when listening to "The gender game" or "The children of Eden".

I am interested enough to want to know what happens next, hopefully the next book in more interesting.

the storyline Not as good as the other books but was ok. if i had the time to read the book i would have, rather than to listen to the horrid voices used in this audio book. they didnt even try, especially the female voice, you couldnt tell the difference voice between the characters she played and she pronounced words incorrectly.
