She now spells her name Cassandra Clare , without an I. It's a pen name; she can do that. It used many of the same tropes found in The Mortal Instruments , and deviated wildly from Harry Potter canon because it was begun before the fifth book was released. It began with a standard "Freaky Friday" Flip plot and developed into a complicated tale involving all sorts of magical inheritance, the four founders of Hogwarts and more. Notable for beginning the Draco in Leather Pants phenomenon, the story took Harry's rival Draco Malfoy and turned him into a sarcastic , leather-clad Anti-Hero best described as a combination of Corwin , Spike and Artemis Fowl. Became wildly popular in fandom to the point where some fans began to prefer the Draco Trilogy to the actual canon.

Pre-review October 30, Because nothing says Halloween like reading one of the most controversial fanfics of all time. I'm shivering with fear and doubt.
Ms Clare, it seems that I have used up all my contempt and angry tears on the 'original' 'trilogy' that is now known as TMI — seeing as no book has provoked similar reaction since — so please make me laugh this time around.
November 2nd, — Nice review Well Maybe I just didn't understand it? Honest review Disclaimer for "honest review" : I did not like Draco Dormiens and express my dislike of it Despite my scorn, the intent of this review is not to cause hurt or to imply that I'm somehow superior to other people. Far from that! However, if you are the type of a person who takes offense easily, please do not read forward.
The quotes included are from the PDF version I read, titles for them if they exist are by me. Spoiler alert: I probably wasn't. Also, the "nice review" contains a lie. But then again, I actually attempted to read it myself, so if somebody else does the same This "book" is so terrible that it puts City of Bones to shame.
City of Bones I could actually finish — it was a painful experience in a way that's at least half funny, AND it contains a quote that describes said experience perfectly "If you were half as funny as you think you are, you'd be twice as funny as you are now". This one I simply cannot, because as each word registered in my brain I almost felt it burning like acid, and I respect J.
Plus, I don't dare to read any further because then I may have to give up on my hope that every single character is brutally murdered by the end of chapter four.
I understand that the story is about as unedited as they come. Still, in the 25 pages I managed to survive, several questions had more than enough time to arise. Everybody who has read TMI with at least one eye open knows that it's not a literary masterpiece with all the nonsensical similes, long-winded sentences, overt reliance on vicious element of deus ex machina , abhorrent pacing, lack of coherent characterization, and Well, what can I say.
Seriously — and this is to everybody who writes something on the Internet — learn the difference. I resisted the urge to make it more aesthetically pleasing for you. Charming, Potter boy. Seems like I'm not the only reader who found him rather annoying — but 1 one would've thought Harry's had enough of Muggle fights to not start them himself, 2 Malfoy has a ROLEX?
Suppose this is what makes him so appeal to Muggle women This seems like the only question we should be asking, so let's just move forward! Okay, did she understand any of it? It sure doesn't bode well with my understanding or even what I'd call a respectfully altered version of it He didn't love her. Apparently not even Clare could turn Hermione into an isabelle, so she must be a pitiful, weak, lovesick doormat who, on top of everything else, ruins books.
It's also a brilliant example of too damned long sentence, if you ask me. And yes, the quotation marks are indeed different in that one paragraph.
But wait, there's more! Always so much more! Draco turns into a human being on page 16 when he's learnt that Hermione feels sorry for him!
Hermione dissolved into giggles. Draco looked over at her, and, without even pausing to ask himself what on earth he was doing, drobbed his Firebolt and his Quidditch robes, grabbed Hermione, and kissed her. For a moment, she melted into the kiss. All put together, the story makes absolutely no sense. Not only are the characters one-dimensional, dumb, and distractingly different from the original and trust me, I'm not opposed to fans developing their own versions of existing characters , but Hogwarts is not what it used to be.
Every detail of Rowling's world is slaving away in service of poor humor not much different from that of the worst American comedies. And I'm getting tired, so let's just end this would-be review with a conclusion. The important questions are the broad ones, like "Whaaat?!
I quit reading the first installment halfway through page 25, and what I read was 25,5 pages too much. For such a big fellow, he moved pretty fast and was soon out of sight.
Ah, my hero! And about Harry Potter. Do you recall that, McNair? Am I wrong to assume that people who found TMI funny would also laugh at this?
Honest question! Anyway, I'm obviously not continuing with this trilogy. I'm not so sure anymore whether or not I want to continue with the TID trilogy either. Maybe I was just so desperate to read a good book that CA didn't kill me further back in the day. View all 8 comments.

All I knew when I found this was that it was written by Cassandra Clare and if I'm honest that was all that mattered. While I'm preparing myself to be unfriended and get rocks thrown at me its important to admit that I have only read 2 of the Harry Potter books and that was when they came out like 15 years ago
