I mean, I just finished the book and I don’t know how I feel. I think I need therapy after this, specially if I’ll have to wait 2 GODDAMN YEARS to put my hands on QoAaD.
I’ve managed to put my thoughts in order because this book left me with so many questions and too little answers, and I need to share them with someone.
-First things first, I can’t be the only one that is sure that this boy Ash is the son of Sebastian and the Queen, AND the secret deadly weapon Sebastian left behind after his death. RIGHT???? And if I remember correctly, he seemed to be standing on a weapons room that had a symbol similar to the one of the Unseelie King. Maybe the Queen also thinks she should be queen of both realms and wants to put her son on the Unseelie throne? I know she promised the Shadowhunters to put Adaon on the throne, but she could very well do that and kill him five seconds after to put her own son instead, and still wouldn’t count as lying.
-Second, now that Robert is dead, the deal he made with Emma and Julian about Emma’s exile is obviously cancelled. What the hell are they gonna do now about the parabatai curse? The only options I can find right now are a) Using the wicked solution that comes with the Black Volume and b) Summoning an angel. Cassandra hinted recently on her tumblr that angels might have a part to play in QoAaD.
-I think Julian is gonna be totally insane after what happened to Livvy. Like, I think is gonna cross the line between morally ambiguous and pure psycho. I think he’s gonna blame himself and go paranoid about his other siblings and protecting what’s left of his family, and that can’t lead to anything good.
-mY POOR TY OMG. I don’t know how he’s going to cope with this, my pure, beautiful child. On a side note, Kit and him are SO gay for each other.
-I can’t be the only one who’s dying to know who Kit’s mom is, right? It seems to be something odd going on about that. Like when Hypathia (I think it was her) asks him who his mom is at the shadow market, he says he doesn’t know and she looks at him in surprise like she knew something he didn’t. Or when the Ridder tells him he knows him and asks him who he is. I have this theory that Kit’s mom was a shadowhunter that left him and his dad, or that maybe was killed or severely punished for being with a “mundane”, and that’s why Johnny hated nefilim so bad.
-And last but not least… AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT REALIZED THAT RAGNOR FELL IS ALIVE????????????? I mean, the strange warlock that was willing to help the nefilim children at the shadow market. The concealing of his appearance. The green skin. The “call me Shade, though that’s not my real last name”. The fact that he disappeared when he saw Magnus. The fact that Cassie said once that he is the only character she truly regrets having killed. HE IS RAGNOR FELL, RAGNOR FELL IS ALIVE, FIGHT ME.
