Okay, if you are going to write a companion, actually write a companion. I'm sorry to say this was a terrible disappointment. It is literally written with no context, and 'deep thinking questions' for paragraphs....with no context. I.E Alec is selfish, he does this selfishly, Magnus breaks up with him, because he tries to kill him. "Should Magnus forgive Alec?". Not only does this one example not explain anything other than an opinion of a character, it isn't even accurate,(It's also a basic rundown, not an exact quote, I won't let this drivel in the house) you need more of the story if you are going to ask questions. It's written in an easy to follow style, but I literally skipped most of the book, then actually read the books again. A word to the wise? Wikipedia, Google or spark notes/cliff notes would provide more accurate and professional summaries than this thing, ask your questions online, or just read the actual book. I've never read this woman's work before, and I never will again. Fans should avoid, and people who want to know about the series should, as before mentioned, find their answers online, or read the novel. Now I'm going to go read a book that doesn't make me loose faith in humanity.
