I really liked the first three books in the series and was looking forward to this one. Boy did I have a hard time getting through this one! There was so much teenager angst between all of them I thought I was going to scream! I know that it is a young adult book and that there would probably be some of this in there but this book was mostly filled with it. It really didn't get interesting until it was almost over. In the first three books I loved all the characters, the world in which it set up and all the fast paced action. This one didn't really have any of that. The characters were there but by the time I finished the book, I didn't like most of them very much anymore. Nothing new on the Shadowhunter world and it really wasn't fast paced until the end. Really thought about not reading book 5 but a friend who agrees with me on this one said 5 is better. So I might try it. I just hope it redeems book 4.
