Okay so i understand that the whole set up of this secret ritual, because Lilith takes all of her precious time to explain it thoroughly, but doesn't that make the ending completely ridiculous? If Simon had to give his blood to Sebastian/Jonathon(w/e) in order to bring him back from the dead, then how is it that he came back to life despite that fact?! I thought he needed Simon's blood specifically in order to come back to life? And why is it that only bad guys ever find the loop holes in their mischievous plot? Why can't a good guy be like "Damn..wow i really needed that guy to be alive to save someone else s life" and then someone else randomly bust in with a "Oh don't worry we found a loop hole to that"?! Sorry for my rampaging but this ending really upset me, and I know that a story wouldn't be any good with the bad guys not being sneaky and all evil like, but I seriously have to draw the line somewhere. Also i feel like this is just another way to have an impossible barrier keeping Clary and Jace apart from each other. I want a book where they're able to kiss each other without all the baggage and maybe kick some demon butt, that just so happens to not be trying to hurt one of them and keep them apart forever, maybe like after Isabelle or Magnus or idk a bunch of innocent blindfolded arm missing pedestrians.
-Sorry if i said anything that doesn't make sense i tend to ramble
