Happy Monday. Well hopefully happy.
Hello and welcome to another #READShadowhunter post. Is everyone keeping up? I admit this week I am super behind as Queen of Nothing and a few other books I was looking forward too came out. So instead of reading the CoHF
I ended up reading other books. But I am caught up now and ready for these questions. I know there was a lot to get through this week and it is getting good. Final Battle incoming and all.
Maia is feeling guilty because she was going to break up with Kyle the day he was murdered. Bat says to her, “But he died thinking he was loved and forgiven. There are much worse gifts to be given.” Do you think Bat is right and Maia should feel okay with thinking he was loved and forgiven as he died?
Oof. This is a hard starting point. I loved Kyle. I mean his past was rough and he did a terrible thing turing Maia but he changed. Grew and helped people. So with that I would be sure he was at peace. That his final thoughts were not of the turmoil he caused but instead of feeling loved and forgiven. I am here for it. No one should die with that kind of guilt. Even if she way lying it was still nice. Least that is my idea about it.
Sebastian is working hard on breaking the alliance between Downworlders and Shadowhunters. He also offers the Shadowhunters an option of enclosing themselves within Alacante and being spared from everything but they are to never to leave the city again. Pretend we aren’t getting Clary, Jace, Izzy, Alec, and Simon’s point of view. If you were part of the werewolf pack and saw Luke’s loyalty & marriage to the Jocelyn like they are being told…. Would you abandon them? If you were a Shadowhunter would you vote to close the gates of Alacante forever?
Short answer … no. I hesitate on this one. I mean if I am going from not knowing anything from anyones POV but my own. I would feel like hiding in Alacante forever is a bad idea. Is it selfsustaning? Am I over thinking this? Honestly it would come down to saving family.
If I was a werewolf I would be terrified the pack would be abandoned and left to a world of destruction. But after everything Luke has down I don’t think I would distrust him? It would be more of a can we all work together in this or is all hope lost.
If I was a Shadowhunter I would be more leaning towards hiding and regrouping. But I would also worry that it was a trap to get us all in one place to have a giant murder fest. So maybe going into hiding would be better.
Honestly I don’t think there is a great answer to this. Without having any knowledge of the main characters it all seems a bit hopeless. So it would come down to how could I save myself and my family without everyone being murdered.
What would you do?
I have a feeling next weeks reading is going to get down to the oh crap we are all going to die parts. Hopefully our heroes will have a good breakthrough and be ready to kick Sebastian’s butt.
Now if you will excuse me I need to get ahead on the reading as this weeks holiday will not allow for it.
Until Next Week. Have a wonderful week and for those in the USA – Happy Thanksgiving. May you eat lots and not have to suffer a bajillion questions from extended family. ❤
