Note: So, due to the fact I have been currently writing these post day by day. I have seemed to forget to change the chapter from 15 to 16/ I corrected them yesterday, but since real life is kicking me in the ass lately I was too busy to let you guys know until now.
Didn’t I tell you guys how awful this book, especially this chapter is paced? We are for the second time in this damn chapter stopping the plot to deal with useless shit. This time, Cassandra Clare is stopping everything to once again wank over how awesome Jace is. How awesome Jace must be to be able to jump thirty feet. up in the air to escape out of the stupidest most inefficient prison ever made.
I’m not impressed.
The reason I’m not impressed is that with the right rune any Shadowhunter could have achieved the very same thing. Yet, Jace brings up this up as concrete proof that of the experiments Valentine did to Joceyeln and by proxy to Clary and Jace in-vitro. However, we have seen a little bit of foreshadowing for this for Clary, but none for Jace.
Again, this is not how a plot point should work at all! Especially, when as a writer, you are trying to reveal plot points there has to be little pieces that fit the overall complete picture. Clare did none of that. She was clearly too lazy to not do enough foreshadowing to pull off this plot point it convincingly.
This is writing 101, but Clare never seems to ever comprehend this simple rule of writing.
