This anthology of essays explores Clare’s Mortal Instruments series and its characters, offering different interpretations of the books and exploring their deeper meaning. For fans, this anthology will enrich their appreciation of the series, and for those unfamiliar with Clare’s work, it will pique their curiosity. In this audio edition, narrators Emily Beresford, Luke Daniels, and Tanya Eby deliver solid, but not particularly compelling, performances. The use of multiple narrators helps distinguish each essay in the collection, but it might have been rewarding to fans if Clare had read her introduction to the book. A Smart Pop paperback. (Jan.)
