Is Agramon for freaking real? Seriously, I have detailed over, and over and over again how stupid Valentine and by proxy his bunch of dunderheaded goons The Circle is. And by the way, Agramon is really calling Valentine clever because he managed to outsmart a fucking teenager? Boy, I have do have a bridge I can sell Agramon if that is the case!
I would like to also mention that this is for the millionth another case of Cassandra Clare TELLING and NOT FUCKING SHOWING! I would like to point out that Clare apparently didn’t learn anything from writing ‘City of Bones’. If you were to compare this prologue with her writing style in ‘City of Bones’, there would be literally zero improvements what so ever.
Most seasoned professional writers take the criticism they get from their previous books and improve upon on those issues going forward into the next book. Not so for Cassandra Clare! Just like every other hack writer out there, she just keeps her head in the sand and refuses to take the criticism she gets seriously. And this is exactly why she will never improve as a writer.
