List of things wrong with the Shadowhunter CodexIt finally happened, Cassandra Clare published a book with so many flaws that only quoting the examples I remembered was too much for a journal entry on Deviant Arts, that is how much there is. So since my actualy review is on goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/754729120 here is just a list. of examples I picked.List of things wrong with the Shadowhunter Codex by Asanbonsam
This here was a worse example of world-building than Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Guide.
Note: Only read further if you really want to, since the lists that now come are extremely long and a testament to the writers incompetence, and my inability to stop ranting.
Examples of lazy writing:
Witchstones are just a side product of adama (a magic metal) mining.
There are no actual Shadowhunter fighting/combat styles, they take all from the mundanes.
The demon chapter read like a fourth grade animal guide and not a guide for future warriors, e.g. it doesn't contain common defenses
