Life is good for Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood. They’re living together in a fabulous loft, their warlock son, Max, has started learning to walk, and the streets of New York are peaceful and quiet—as peaceful and quiet as they ever are, anyway.
The Lost Book of the White is the second book from Malec series. It took me awhile to get to this book even though I was really exited about it. I’m glad this book finally explained a bit about what the series name means and hopefully we will see more Tessa in the next book.
I love to see how much all these characters have evolved but I felt like Magnus was out of character at times and it’s not because of that sword. It took years for Magnus to reveal who her father is to Alec but now he’s just telling shadowhunters he just met?
One of my favorite things in this book was to see Simon to deal with certain character death. It was heartbreaking how he wanting to be a shadowhunter but the final “lessoon” from the shadowhunter academy really affected him. I don’t cry easily but his speech really made me cry.
I wish this book had more actual Magnus and Alec content. Cassandra Clare called this her adult series but it just felt YA for me with like one or two sex scenes.
All in all I wish I had enjoyed this one more. I just felt bored most of the plot and while I like all the characters from the original gang I wanted this series to focus more in Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood. The ending made me interested in keep reading the series besides my love for Malec.
