Another home-run for Cassandra Clare!

Another awesome book! Profanity level is the same as the second book. This book is a bit more graphic, but it makes up with its awesome plot. Positive references to the bible and Christianity. Romantic and slightly suggestive content.

Gruesome violent fantasy book

this book was filled with lots of violence and action with language. i disliked it a lot. I let my 18 year old read it and man he said it was filthier than anything he read! so i highly suggest 18+ t read this.
