Queen of Air and Darkness (The Dark Artifices #3)

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The Queen of Air and Darkness is the third and final installment in Cassandra Clare’s The Dark Artifices. After leaving us all in suspense at the closing or Lord of Shadows, and then making us wait two years to feel whole again, I have to say I am disappointed.
I really thought that Emma and Julian’s love story would end with a big bang, and instead it was subtle and straight to the point. I thought they deserved a little more excitement. Secondly, separating Kit from Ty was beyond cruel. He needed him. His whole shifted the other way.
One thing I did love was the creation of Thule. I loved the idea that the world can be so similar and only one event caused the difference. It is proof that choices matter. I loved that there were some happy endings since LOS had me wanting to stick my head in a jar of ketchup.
I guess what made me not give the book 5 stars is that before the stories would have me on the edge of my seat. This one just didn’t make me feel that rush, that excitement. If I had to use one word to describe it…PREDICTABLE.
