I have been saving this rant all chapter, but it’s now time to talk about how Jace’s storyline was blatantly ripped off from Star Wars. I would go further to accuse Clare of blatantly and unrepentantly ripping the whole incest plot straight from ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’
Luke’s whole storyline and his relationship with Leia (a woman that he kissed in the first movie) is very similar to Jace and Clary’s storyline in this book. I would also like to point out that Jace and Valentine’s relationship in some ways mimics Luke and Anakin Skywalker’s own contentious relationship.
Seriously, Clare has ripped off not one but two fandoms in one single chapter. I think she broke a record somewhere! Do I need to even tell you guys how pitiful and sad this is? It seems that not only Clare’s a lazy hack, but she doesn’t seem to be able to write a single original idea as well.
