Short review: Well, not as good as the previous installment with the elder Herondale. This character reminded me too much of Jace, who I am not a big fan of. I also was a bit shocked at some of the characters and their motivations, to be quite frank. However, I like the Tessa and Magnus interactions. Hope to see more of those soon...maybe a story of the time where he was in Paris with her? I like them together, as friends. Nothing more. That would be blaspheme. Overall it was enjoyable, but not particularly memorable.
