So just after I just got done bitching about how inept and negligent the authority figures in this book are, right on cue Maryse Lightwood shows up. And let me tell you I am not impressed at all!
First of all, Maryse just admitted that she knew that not only did her children went up against Valentine and his forces by themselves, she also knew that Hodge betrayed their entire family. But wait, there is more to this fuckery: because Maryse also reveals that she was told that her son Alec, went up against a greater demon. Yet it’s very obvious from reading the last book, that this is the first time that Jace, Isabelle, and Alec’s parents have contacted to them since they left for Idris.
Maryse and Robert didn’t even call or tried to write an email check on their children! I know if I had been in the same situation, I would be calling every hour on the hour until I got home. Also, I’m side-eyeing the fuck out of Robert right now. Why does he even have to stay in Idris? Is The Clave forcibly keeping him there? Or is his business and/or career more important than his family?
Really, the more I learn about the Lightwood family, the more I realize how dysfunctional as fuck their family really is.
