I have recently finished City of Heavenly Fire, the last book in the Mortal Instruments series, and I find myself completely satisfied for many reasons. One of the primary ones, is that most of the characters get to live happily ever after and every single secondary character of importance has resolution, a few fairy tale endings and a few bittersweet. I have been particularly interested in the relationships in this series between Alex and Magnus and between Helen and Aline and the storyline built around Shadowhunter culture accepting LGB members of their society.
I wonder why Cassandra Clare decided to introduce this storyline and so many LGB characters into this series. If anyone knows I would love some insight. I was also wondering how these characters and relationships make you feel towards the book and if they influence who you would recommend the book to? I personally think it’s a great way to get readers to think critically about their own biases toward the LGB community and the passage of laws that limit or deny basic rights.
