The Queen just pwned Luke Garroway in every way possible with just these two snippets. Because unlike Luke, the Queen traveled all the way from the North to get justice for her fallen Seelie child, unlike Luke who couldn’t stop kissing Jace’s ass, even for a second, to go retrieve the body of the werewolf cub who was part of his pack.
I know that Cassandra Clare was setting up for her audience to dislike the Queen, but once again, I see very little difference between our protagonists and our antagonists. It’s like the shows ‘House of Cards’ or ‘Hannibal’. Almost everyone in those series is an asshole and is morally corrupt. So why should I root for who Clare wants me to root for? Despite being a manipulative murdering bitch, I like her. She tells it how it is, and she seems somewhat competent which is more than I can say for the rest of the characters in this series.
And in this book competence is most definitely in short supply.
