I also want to talk about this piece of the passage that we see here. What in the hell do you mean that Jocelyn didn’t have choice to join The Circle just because she was married to Valentine? I haven’t seen any evidence that Jocelyn was abused or Valentine was controlling her. Just because he’s a villain, doesn’t mean right off bat that he is an abusive asshole. To me Clare needed that show that through this book, although thinking about it now, her scars may not be result from all the battles she had as a Shadowhunter, but it might an actual sign of abuse. Either way, this is another big question that needs be answered by Clare.
Another I have issue with when it’s to Jocelyn not having a choice about joining the circle, she could have run away and told the Clave. I’m pretty that Clave would have done everything in power to protect her, because just gave show of her loyalty. So all in all, without more information from Clare about Jocelyn and Valentines’s relationship I can’t completely buy that Jocelyn didn’t have choice.
