In this installment, the academy is once again graced by Izzy. This time, she’s not alone. She’s with the Inquisitor, her father, Robert Lightwood.

The inquisitor shared to Simon and other students how the Circle came to be, and in the process teaching them lessons in recognizing evil. This was one back story I never really thought about. In the movie there was that photo of alleged Circle members and they all looked so badass, and now I wish I knew more about the Circle.

I’d probably be one of those who want to be a part of the Circle, but Valentine wouldn’t want me. Hahahaha… Valentine is such an interesting character. He’s probably the most beloved enemy in all of fiction. A young Valentine is as irresistible as the older Valentine. He’s so inlove with Jocelyn, it’s crazy. What would be crazier is making their kind of relationship someone’s relationship goals… because that love is the kind of destructive love.

Anyway, did Valentine ever felt betrayed by Jocelyn? Did he ever feel hurt? What was he really feeling? I guess he still wanted Jocelyn till the very end.

Anyways, on to Sizzy drama. Izzy, being popular everywhere she goes, went on to snatch Simon’s friends.. and enemies as well. Simon did not want to be a part of anything with Izzy, but he was literally lured to come with them in their next excursion. Finding out that they’re planning to summon a demon, Simon was battling within himself whether to tell the inquisitor or the dean. Ann he did.. and its revealed that everything was actually a test, and all of them failed it miserably, except for Simon. Which led to being praised by the inquisitor himself.

This book deserves ten stars, if only for the fact that Simon and Izzy are now okay. Be still my fangirl heart.
