If you thought for one second that the info dumps would get better this chapter, you are horribly wrong. Please don’t pass go, and you diffidently don’t get that 200 hundred dollars! In this chapter, The info dumps seem to multiply and it pisses me off because a) they are not subtle at all, and b) nothing else really happens this chapter. Yeah, a couple of things move the plot forward such as the later fight with her mother, and Clary storming out with Simon, but honestly this chapter and the next just sets up what happens in Chapter four Honestly, I don’t know why Clare spit chapter two and three. Both chapters are obvious short filler chapter, and the book would have flowed better if they were combined.
Pro tip: The first quarter of your book is the most important part of your book. You can’t just write a good hook, and then throw exposition at your readers! They will eventually get bored and quit reading all together. This is again is writing 101. Again, for someone who supposed to be a such a seasoned writer, Clare continues to make newbie mistakes.
