Shadowhunters

Season 2 Episode 4

Day of Wrath (January 23, 2017)

Plot Summary

Jace awaits his fate in the City of Bones; Clary, Alec, and Isabelle hunt a powerful demon terrorizing the Institute; Jocelyn has a proposition for Clary as Raphael and Simon ramp up their search for Camille.

My take on this episode:                      Well this episode was different than what I thought it was going to be. It’s still a good episode though and one I guess that had to happen for other characters to go a different route.

A lot has happened in this one. Especially for poor Jace who is in the City of Bones because of what his dad made him do with the help of a spellbound Clary to get him to do it. Unknowingly to Jace that this might have been a part of his father’s plan all along to get the sword.

A demon has been let loose and it’s all bad news for our shadowhunter friends especially Clary once they figure out what it’s doing. After this episode, I certainly believe that Valentine should be punished for the pain he caused everyone especially his own daughter.

This episode has deferred from the books a bit but that might have been done intentionally for this episode since technically it has for the character’s ages and for overall so far of this season.

There was twists and turns that have left me wondering if this is how Clary and Simon get together is through with what happened in this episode? Guess I will find out in the next episode.

Shadowhunters

Season 2 Episode 3

Parabatai Lost (January 16, 2017)

Plot Summary

Jace’s situation worsens when he becomes a target for the New York wolf pack, who believes that he is a killer; Raphael pressures Simon to find Camille.

My take on this episode:                      This is the first episode with recaps from this season. It picks up the next day after Clary and Jace jumped off the barge and into the ocean.

Immediately after that Jace is on the run from four groups. The Clave, Luke’s pack, the police, and of course Valentine’s people. Each group because of something that he has upset them. Of course during all of this Alec is still not doing well and that is also with why Isabelle is also after Jace because he is the only one that can help Alec.

Clary and her problems are actually put on the back burner during this episode.

Simon is still having Raphael going after him to get Camille since he is one of her only sires that haven’t joined her into taking down Raphael. Raphael has actually hit pretty low on the way of getting Simon to help him by going after his family.

Shadowhunters

Season 2 Episode 2

A Door Into the Dark (January 9, 2017)

Plot Summary

Alec and Isabelle act quickly to find Jace after the Clave issues a “shoot to kill” order; Simon turns to Magnus for help when he finds himself at odds with both Raphael and Aldertree; Clary struggles to figure out where she belongs.

My thoughts on this episode:               Once again we have some more season one recaps before we start off after what happened with the first episode of season two. Alec tells Clary off since a lot of trouble has happened for him, Isabelle, Jace, and his parents and brother Max.

Another episode of a lot of things happening for the characters. The other shadowhunters don’t trust her since she is Valentine’s daughter and won’t let her help with anything that has to deal with Jace and she doesn’t think she belongs in either of the two worlds anymore.

Jocelyn is putting finding Jace and killing him on hold so she can get Clary back. Even though Clary doesn’t want anything to do with her mom at all. She also helps Isabelle and Alec even if Isabelle doesn’t like what Alec has to do.

Jace is still struggling to figure out who he is and how that will affect him in the long run and he doesn’t fully believe Valentine until Valentine brought Clary via Dot.

Simon has been put into a tough spot by both Aldertree and Raphael and he doesn’t know what to do about it. He and Magnus come to a agreement of sorts about Simon’s status of being a vampire.

Shadowhunters

Season 2 Episode 1

This Guilty Blood (First Aired Date: January 2, 2017)

Plot Summary

Jace’s depature with Valentine creates upheaval in The Institute; the arrival of Victor Aldertree hampers Alec, Isabelle and Clary’s plan to rescue Jace; Jocelyn, now awake, tries to catch up on events.

My thoughts on this episode:               We start off this episode with seeing a bit of what happened in the first season as a small recap. Then after that we dive into the first episode.

A lot has happened since Jace went with his dad onto the barge. We met the new Institute director and I don’t really like him and not a whole lot of people really do.

All the characters had surprising things happen for them. Like Malec having their first, and certainly note least, fight. Isabelle trying to be good and help Clary out. Jocelyn finding out that Jonathon is still alive and she is not happy about that even though us book fans of the series know that Jace isn’t that one. Jace is fighting within himself still about being Valentine’s son. Clary is still trying to find Jace to bringhim back which didn’t happen. And Simon is still sidelined along with his feelings for Clary.

Aurora Grimaldi’s life has been about fighting for justice under the ruthless regime of Shadow kingdoms. In a twist of fate, she uncovers a secret organization run by creatures of magic- the Imperium.

The Imperium is in a crisis. Something has been stolen from them and they will stop at nothing to get it back. The more Aurora gets involved, the deeper she is pulled into a web of lies and deceit. And it doesn’t help when the Shadow kingdoms start interfering.

With the thief lurking in the shadows, Aurora struggles to find her place in everything that is going on and her choices may just have far more dangerous consequences than she could have imagined.

My take on this book:              Pawn in the Game by Tara R is a really great book that I am very glad that I got the chance to read the book. I believe that Tara R has a really good plot and this book was wonderfully written. I was sucked in the moment I was read the synopsis and I really wanted to read it.

Like I was saying before Pawn in the Game has a great plot and the author was able to take us to many places in the course of the book. I enjoyed the characters development, backstory and with how the author imagined the way that the Shadow kingdoms and the Imperium works as well. What a wonderful world she has created.

I did find some faults with the book, though. One was there were some spelling and grammar mistakes. Another thing that put me off was the gruesome gory details of the people that were killed. This is truly a personal thing, I don’t care for the gory and horror to be described in such detail, but I know that many people do. There are still some questions going through my head that didn’t get answered in this book but will probably get answered in the following books.

The Pawn in the Game by Tara R is a great book and I am grateful to have read it. My rating for this book is 3 stars and that is mostly because I kept losing the magic of the story due to the items listed above. Other than those things this book was really great but I am not sure if I will read the next one. We shall see. Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

Anyways until the next time enjoy this book review brought to you by
