Why should you read it?
The book is amazing. It is a teen novel, but I think everyone who loves science fiction/fantasy will fall in love with the book as much as I did. Cassandra Clare describes love in a new way, by creating a new world. The book will make you realize that sometimes the people you think you hate are not that bad, maybe they are not even the bad guys. I also loved the book because of Tessa, who is a badass (in a good way), but she is also what you would normally consider a kind of an enemy. I definitely recommend it to everyone ;)
