The Mortal Instrument Series: City of Bones / City of Ashes / City of Glass / City of Fallen Angels
City of Bones
When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder. Much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with odd markings. This is Clary’s first meet...more
So this is a review for the series as a whole not even a review just a biased suck ass opinion. Now some are like 5 stars for a whole series c'mon? I can't help it that I'm absolutely in love with this series. There's people who hate it and people who love it. I don't care what anyone says these books are my babies with all their faults and arrogant assholes.
I love the world that Mrs. Clare created every single of piece of it. I lov ...more
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 fir ...more
i just fell in love with this book! The whole shadowhunters thing was awesome (can't wait for the movie to come out).
Every charatcer was great, like Jace the good looking boy, Isabelle the pretty mean girl (she's not tht mean) nd her brother Alec who is the quiet guy with his cruch on Jace then Clary nd Simon
i read every single book (my best friend read them all before nd she spoils everyting! even tho i love her) but the last book...
in the last book Jace is now evil becuz he is ...more
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 writin ...more
Okay so it's been a while since I've read these books, but I can only remember Amazing things about them. Amazing with a capital A, you see that? :) Some of my favorite books, these my friends, are a must-read! Thrilling and heart-stopping action, intriguing plot, dynamic characters, and best of all, a flaming, red-hot, (kind of creepy at times) love-story! I only have to wait until next year for the next one to come out..I don't know WHY she made us wait for two yea ...more
I really enjoyed reading this book. It has great descriptions and it is an easy read. I do feel that this book almost was the same as the Harry Potter series, but was unique in its own way. In this series, the main character does not know that she has The Sight or has blood of The Clave, just like Harry not knowing he was a wizard. Also, the main character, Clary, has gotten involved with this unknown mythical world and fell in love with it. Clary also does not k ...more
To start off, as the series goes on, Clare starts switch point of view more and more until it's almost impossible to keep up with the characters because it's a different one every three or so pages. And what Clare lacked in this series, with point of views, is that each character is supposed to have their own personality and way of thinking. Unfortunate ...more
There are many reviews about this book and the whole series. I say that don't be discouraged with the negative reviews. I all most decided not to read this series because of the negative reviews but once I got into the series, I did not want to read anything else. This has become one of my favorite series after Harry Potter ...more
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 ...more
I must admit that there were times in the last book where it was slow and I ended up skipping to the back and reading to see what really happened. The characters are well rounded and are easy to identify with. I love Clary's die hard spirit and her love for Jace is the type of love you can only read about.
I am looking forward to the final book that should be coming out soon.
