The Mortal Instruments The Shadowhunters touched by angels and charged with protecting innocents battle demons and other evil in the bestselling Mortal Instruments series City of Bones When Clary Fray heads out to the Pande
Cassandra Clare is humorous, edgy and enlightening in this phenomenal series The Mortal Instruments The characters are well rounded and Jace has a certain bad boy allure that most females have learned to crave these days The books builds up suspense right from the start and the author cleverly releases most of the suspense at the peak but somehow conveys that there is yet something to be solved and the audience is left suspended in mid air With all the paranormal creatures crammed into these boo [...]
Some people will love these books and that is fine I m on book four now and it is only because I hate not finishing a story that I ve continued And because I had apparently already bought the set The series reads like a story written by a 14 year old girl who wants to be a writer when she grows up The plotting, the structure, the strong Mary Sue of the lead female character, there are some interesting ideas but nothing seems well thought out or at minimum well planned out In terms of writing tho [...]
Wow This series had me hooked from the first It mingled regular humans, vampires, werewolves, demons and a new breed of humans trained for a life of supernatural war, known as Shadowhunters Quotes were added from literature of old, to Biblical phrases and current authors There are characters like Isabelle Lightwood, who believe every story or fable is true but does not hold to any given religion I would guess that to be most of the other characters Then there is Simon, a shy boy, whose first lov [...]
I really liked this book and I found it quite enjoyable Although in the beginning I thought it was about instruments and some weird stuff I really didn t think It would turn out pretty good It was kinda scary but not that scary D but uh, i recommend u guise 2 read it tench
Fantastic series If you can get past the first one, the others are sure to do it for you for sure Very good plot and great characters I loved the development and how everything progressed Very happy reader

In my point of view Cassandra Claire is one of the best righter I have ever encountered Her books are amazing not just the mortal instrument books but all of her books She make up these worlds that are so imaginative and clever that incorporate every fairy tale creature you can think of It s such a fascinating world with their different cultures and traditions I love the characters and how they each have their own story and own personalities The focus in the book changed as it went on it would s [...]
let me just say that i love this series than any books i have read Cassandra did an excellent job with the personalities of the characters and had an amazing imagination and very detailed It was great how she put all different people into one situation I love how she wrote the twist and turns that took your breath away This series gave me imagination and a passion for reading I also love Jace to pieces and love Alec and Magnus I also love the fact that she put this into the real world and anot [...]
I loved this series The first three books were amazing but I know some people feel that it dragged on with the 6 books The fourth one was okay, and the last two were great I am tired of seeing all the series I read be compared to twilight, and this is one of them You can t compare them, and I don t even see any similarity Since I started reading in January, I haven t found a series I didn t like But I guess some people are very picky with what they like, but I m pretty simple This is one of the [...]
If I were 12, I would give this probably 4 or 5 stars Plot is really good but cheesy teeny bits in between made me cringe at times and giddy at other times The way I would describe this in short is True Blood for teens Or Buffy meets Twilight with less vampiresThat said, I m currently rereading it until I m ready to read my next John Mayberry novel
I actually read the books separately, but who wants to review all of them They re actually sort of fun kitchen sink urban fantasy, if you can get around the horribly creepy main romance, and the sort of pathetic main character.
all i can say is that this is now my life.
Ah mazing In a class of its own
i love this whole series just finished city of lost souls now waiting for city of heavenly firent wait
Summary for myself to keep up with everything that is going on in this seriesWe meet Clarey innocent, sweet, artsy and her best friend Simon geeky, cute, friendzoned but totally in love with Clarey and they are two normal teenagers Then Clarey meets Jace, she is the only one who can see him and the other shadowhunters in glamour Alec and Isabelle in a crowded nightclub as they hunt and kill a demon who looks like a human.Jace curious about Clarey follows her, they discover that Clarey s mother J [...]
here on my father s account being from Sri Lanka where we have strict traditions, all this head over heels at sixteen gave me a little nausea other than that, language, incidents and sense of humor was amazing my fave couple is Simon and Isabelle, I always loved nerd supergirl combination who think as much about others as themselves while Jace and Clary seems to think that world revolve around them SPOILER I cursed clary in Lost Souls for not letting jace escape with the infernal cup that was so [...]
They are pretty good books They have the same feel as Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Percy Jackson However, they do have adult themes mixed in I would recommend reading them before your children do In a way, the settings are very similar to what I ve heard in World of Warcraft I wonder if Cassandra Clare is a video gamer I am looking forward to see the first movie, City of Bones, coming out in August 2013 I think the actor for Jace is a perfect choice After all, only Clary sees him perfect and [...]
This series is central to shadowhunter plotline and consists of many other supernatural beings The usp of the series is its gripping storyline with its thrills and twists The characters are common from any other supernatural series, nothing new to explore.
Fun, and I loved the runes Also great to see queer characters.
I loved all of these books When you finish the whole series read Shadowhunters Academy.
Interesting plot One of my favourite Bring to on a road trip or a plane ride
I never liked fantasy before I read these books Some parental guidance should be taken in parts of the books.
Merveilleux romans dont le monde n appartient qu lui Irrempla able avec des personnages attachants.
Hello there, fellow good readers I don t normally write reviews, comments or rate books, because I think it s something extremely subjective and personal But in this case, I ve decided to leave my comfort zone, and express my opinion Mrs C Clare s The Mortal Instruments series makes me want to point out and clear what I feel are some potentially harmful misconceptions.Now, before you ask, yes, I ve read all five books in this series because I did like certain characters And I do have a grea deal [...]
City Of BonesHidden RealitiesThis series must be read in order This is the first book I can t wait to read City Of Ashes to find out what happens next Clary is just an ordinary girl who is an exceptional artist just like her mother Her best friend is a guy named Simon who is in a band She never knew her dead father but her mom s best friend Luke has always been there for her She leads an ordinary if boring life until she starts seeing people in the club Purgatory that noone else can Is there ano [...]
It is unique and I ll guess that readers who love stories of adventures and magic take Harry Potter series for example will love this series I already finished the whole series and it literally made me cry and hooked Now I wish that I can be a shadowhunter and meet my own Jace Herondale lol
