In the last novella it was mentioned that Magnus Bane was going to be coming to the Academy to do a series of guest lectures. What wasn’t mentioned was that Alec was going to tag along with him. Simon is nervous about this because he hasn’t seen Alec since his memories have been slowly coming back. And according to Jace, something nasty happened between the two of them.
But things don’t go according to plan. A baby is left on the doorstep of the Academy that is blue, but not from cold. It’s a warlock. So Simon goes up to Magnus’ room to ask what to do and accidentally walks in on Alec and Magnus in the act. Whoops.
So, apparently, Clare was saving the assault on my feels for this one, because she hit them. And she hit them hard. Between Magnus and Alec with a baby warlock and adopting it. And Simon and Alec having a heart to heart, I was just a total wreck when I finished reading this one. I especially loved the heart to heart that Alec and Simon had. It was great to see a guy like Alec open up a little bit.
Final Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I’m writing this review almost four days later and my feels are still reeling from being assaulted like this.
Bookshelf worthy? Electronic only for now.
