Format: Paperback
I was a little skeptical of reading this book because of some of the bad reviews I was seeing. I am so glad that I will not just follow suit and ignore a book on what some else might say. This book was so good, the twists and turns had me saying to myself "I can't believe that just happened"! I could hardly put this book down along with the next City of Ashes book and now I can't wait for City of Glass to come out!

If you are on the fence about reading this book, I would give it a try. I think it is definitely worth the read! I am a huge fan of supernatural books and this one is one of the better novels I have read.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book in the Mortal Instruments Trilogy and I don't have enough words for it. It's a story about a world that is hidden from the humans where these Shadowhunters fight the demons that have entered the earth.

Clary is our main character and she discovers that she is one of them when her mother went missing and a demon attacked her. As she was drawn into this world so did I when I started reading the first pages. The author, Cassandra Clare has a certain way with the words that makes you want to live into this magic world.

I found all the characters enjoyable and for the first time I think I found a book that combines funny scenes, dark elements, fast paced action and deadly gorgeous men all thrown into the mix to make the most delicious book. Add to that a very complicate love triangle and you have a hit!

There is a lot of drama in this book but the events and the characters justify each action taken in this book.
The writing style is my favourite. It's written on third person narrative which made the story stand up. This way we could get a glimpse of every character in this book.

Overall this book was amazing! City of Bones will keep you reading with the hot action and twists till the very late hours.

Format: Paperback
Having already read the first book in the new prequel trilogy to this series, The Infernal Devices, I starting reading this book with some preconceived notions. Cassandra Clare blew them completely out of the water. The world was familiar, the weapons, the battles and the environment. Humans, werewolves, vampires, warlocks, Shadow Hunters, down worlders and mundane all mixed up in events together. But being set in our time was an amazing new twist on something I was familiar with. And yet something so new and unique I found myself picking up the book again and again when I should have been doing other things, and saying to myself just one more page, or till the end of this section or chapter but could literally not make myself put the book down.

The characters are amazing and the world creation so complete, so seamless, and so believable, that, as a reader, you feel as if it might not be fiction but a clearer view of reality than most of us have in our day-to-day life. The books in this series are so well-written that you will read the books back to back and maybe even read them again and again. This book was the first one published by Cassandra Clare and the skill shown, and mastery of the writing craft, is amazing for a first novel.

It is set in a world with a battle between light and darkness, and a group of humans who try to keep that which is evil from destroying our world. These shadow hunters are humans who have been blessed with the blood of an angel. They have claves around the world and work to keep the peace between other species and with each other, and to protect humans. The major players seem to be warlocks, vampires, werewolves, fairies and the shadow hunters, also known as Nephilim.

I liked this whole series. The story is written well enough and I like the storline, very imaginative and original...as far as what I have read so far. I like the chemistry between Jace and Clary. I wished that there was more between them...still keeping it strung out and suspenseful throughout the series of course. It is what keeps us reading after all!
I recommend the entire series.

I loved this book! This was actually recommended to me by my grandmother... ANYWAY, I thought this was an amazing book, at first I wasn't sure that it would really be my type of book, too... Teen romancy but it was absolutely fantastic, the characters are well developed and the storyline is perfect! I think this book is definitely worth all the hype although I refuse to watch the movie for fear of it being horrible. I think I cried enough tears to fill a swimming pool reading this series. :P

One of the best books I've ever read!! My BFF read this series then begged me to watch the movie when it came out, I was determined to finish the book first and I did! The movie wasn't the best, the book was!!😆
