User reviews about this book
Love CC, but...
I have read all of the Shadowhunter Novels and loved them, but this one is definitely the worst; which says a lot considering the rest of CC’s books are strokes of pure genius. There were lots of character plots that took away from what had potential to be a good story. The story line itself is honestly hard to follow and the use of Annabel was minimal. I did like seeing how things could have been after the Mortal War though. That is primarily what gives this book the 3 stars. The Cristina, Kieran, and Mark thing had me weirded out to level 10.5, not to mention I didn’t find myself rooting for Emma and Julian like I had been at the beginning of the series. Overall if you have read the other Dark Artifacts Novels and want to finish the series you should, but don’t hold this book to as high a standard as the others because in the end it will disappoint. Shadowhunter fans know that I am not hating on CC at all because I love her and her writing a lot I just think this project was a small hiccup.

Great Book, But too positive
By tessie sad about new color cup
This book was good, but (spoiler alert) I dislike that in every series everything works out perfectly in the end. Obviously things aren’t perfect , but the characters personal lives/problems are all resolved. I would have found it more interesting had there been more tragedy written in.
Liberal propaganda filled with thinly veiled political metaphors that fool nobody. Ridiculous character arcs that do nothing to further the plot but only serve to pander to the current political climate. What started out as fantastic literature has become trash. I won’t be reading any more of her books.
An amazing read
This is an amazing end to the dark artifices trilogy and any fans of the mortal instruments will be immensely satisfied with this series. I would even go as far as saying that this is better written than the mortal instruments with a much more interesting and compelling cast in my opinion.
Good read. Not sure I really like the threesome side story in there. This is a young adult book and just seems odd. I think it would have been better without that developing. Yet I am sure it will come into play later. The transgender was addressed just enough. But interjected is some ways that seems to almost damped the build ups, yet I suppose since it was created as a side story it needed closure and it was done nicely. I feel like trying to interweave those with the main characters almost complicated the storyline and lost some of the magical flow. But I would still totally read it again and as always great plots and twists. Love all the characters and the evolution and direction of the story leaves me excited for the next book. Just not as wow as some of the other books.
Way too political
This was way too political and had way too many characters being focused on. I doubt this series was meant to be written in this direction but because of the political climate our country is in I guess she wanted to focus on that. It was super disappointing since like to read to escape the world we live in and relax. This book was so far the political toilet that certain scenes made me laugh at how horribly written and absolutely ridiculous they were all being. So many pointless plots randomly added in as well. It was confusing and hard to understand what this book was even about. The whole parabatai curse was so anti climatic and silly. Come on this was supposed to be a curse.. The amount of different relationships/characters in those relationships going on was super confusing and seemed to be thrown in “just cause” rather than to enhance the story. I enjoy her adding in the different types of relationships in her books but this was WAY too much. Space all those relationships out in different books.. Focus on those other characters in their own series. This book should have been more focused on just a few characters more deeply. I’m usually a fast reader and enjoy CC’s writing but this book not only took me ages to get through it also made me less eager to ever read another CC book. Hope you get back to actually writing about shadowhunters and their world CC.

This book is full of twists and turns. It keeps you shook til the very last word.
Great, but NOT 1st Edition
The Shadowhunter universe has always been incredibly exciting, and Queen of Air and Darkness stays true to that excitement. It was a great read, and I'm glad Clare gives readers some closure. However, if you were expecting this ebook to contain the bonus illustrations and A Long Conversation, Part 2, you are purchasing the wrong copy. I was disappointed to find out that the illustrations and short story were not included when they are mentioned in the descriptions. It's really misleading.
Wordy blather sprinkled with exotic names.
