If their notes weren't there, this wouldn't have been as interesting. I really liked how much we learned about the shadowhunter world though!

This would have been kinda dry without the "notes" by Clary, Simon and Jace, and the "sketches" by Clary. Those were the best parts. If you're really into the series, you'll want to read this. If not, you may not care that much.

Interesting companion book to the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices. The illustrations on the end papers and throughout are magnificent. When I read that the book came with notes from Clary, Jace, and Simon, I got excited because I love reading the little extras from characters that authors will sometimes give fans. I was not disappointed by the quality of "notes", but rather the quantity. I'll now have to go back and reread both series to see what new light can be shed upon characters and plots that I may have missed before reading the Codex.

Really good. Don't read it if you haven't read at least 'The Mortal Instruments'. Some of the information is inconstant with what the books say (like the sections about Downworlders) but since this is to be from a Shadowhunter perspective it makes sense. The comments written by Clary, Simon and Jace are really funny and make the book a lot more fun.
