Before I start anything, I want to acknowledge that the Queen is a vicious bitch. Despite being a bitch, the Queen does have a a very good point. During all this soap opera drama we have had in this book, we have literally seen no one in this damn series doing their fucking job. Expect for the Inquisitor, and her team who are have been searching for the perpetrators of the Downworlder children’s murders.
However, one of my biggest complaints about this series so far is that no one seems to do their fucking jobs! The Shadowhunters are supposed to be the law enforcement of the Shadowworld, but no one does any type patrolling. We never see them actively slaying anything. Add in the fact that the word ‘investigation’ seems to be a completely unknown word to the Shadowhunter Community, it makes to highlight just how bad they are at their job. I would like to remind the audience that before this kerfuffle with Clary and Valentine the Clave had only assigned the Lightwoods, and their children to look after New York City — one of the biggest cities in the world.
So yeah, The Queen has a point, and it’s pretty pathetic that Cassandra Clare’s own characters are pointing this out in her own canon. And it’s like she is completely oblivious or doesn’t care.
