Inside you’ll read:
A cinematic tutorial on why the best friend (Simon) always loses out to the bad boy (Jace) The benefits (no, really!) of incest . . . at least in literature What we can read between the lines of Alec and Magnus’ European vacation The importance of friendship, art, humor, and rebellion And more, from the virtues of Downworlders to the naughty side of Shadowhunting
My thoughts: I really have to say this is a great way to let fans into an author's mind and to beat it all, it's not just on author. Many author tell tales of things you can fin within this book. Clare, talks about how she find her self making up runes based on designs made from a friends tattoo art.
Kate Milford- talks about how ordinary everyday places can turn into a place full of war, vampires, or even demons.
Diana Peterfreund - takes on the topic of weapons and how they, as authors, gain idea and perspective.
Robin Wasserman- laws, loyalty and keeping the peace....a favorite for no one, but the only way to survive.
Kami Garcia- relationships....incest and love. Friendships and much more.
