As I was reading the ending I though, “This was how the Hunger Games should have ended.” Not that she gets both guys, but a long, lengthy ending that answers all the questions. Cassandra Clare wrapped up all the loose ends and made an ingenious ending.
Now that I know what happens with Jem, I feel like I should go back and read the books again. I feel in love with Will too deeply to like Jem for Tessa. After Clockwork Prince, I couldn’t handle it. However, now that this is over, I am so happy that she gets to marry Will and have Jem later. This has been one of the best endings to a book I’ve ever read. Endings are extremely difficult and Cassandra Clare has proved her genius.
I love this journey that I’ve been on with her. I’ve been reading the books since City of Bones and I’ve been able to see how her writing has improved and her overarching genius. She is know #2 on my greatest authors list, right under J.K. Rowling.
