Jesus, this is just down right sad! Clare can’t even keep up with her own book. Yikes! I mean in the first snippet it’s pretty clear that the person above was not only the Inquisitor, but that she also immediately pegged Clary for being Valentine’s daughter.
Also, what the hell is going with Clare’s editors? I occasionally write fanfiction, and my editors would have immediately picked up on this mistake and would have told me to fix it. Yet, Clare’s editors who I assumed went to college and studied for years to get this job just let this shit go? I’m not a professional editor, honestly I’m borderline dyslexic, and I have a love-hate relationship with the English language. However, even I know that part about Clary hoping that she wouldn’t be recognized by the Inquisitor should have been cut. I know that I’m nitpicking, but I hate when the so-called professionals churn out mediocre work.
