bookshelves: city-slickers, horror, mystery, paranormal, vampire-stories, ya, 2009
Read in October, 2009

I really loved this series, I would recommend it to anyone that loves series books, fantasy, paranormal, Harry Potter and Twilight. I can't believe I never heard of it till this summer and had to pick it up. It sat on my shelf for months as I collected the set even though I hadn't read a one! Could have turned out to be a big mistake! I'm so glad it wasn't. At first I thought the author was showing off with all the sass and witty comebacks then found myself laughing out loud and loving the wit. Full of action, adventure and most unusual characters. Great fantasy and easy to follow and read. Great books to disappear into when life is stressful, as mine was these past few weeks so thankful for the escape didn't think I'd be able to and was swept away. I read some of the most romantic lines written in this that took my breath away at some points and made me wish I could jump in and be Clary *sigh* I have heard there is a possable 4th book in this series but this one made me feel resolved and feel like the end with a few possablities lingering as an afterthought hmmmmm.... Of course if the story continues as most do I'll be at the book signing with my I heart Jace T-shirt on and runes tattooed down my arms!!! Yep that would be a blast 37 year old woman acting my age for a change :)

Christy (TheReaderBee) Karla, I just started on this book today, and saw your review. I have to agree with you, Jace is awesome! Can I get an I heart Jace shirt too?? LOL! Can't wait to finish the book... I'm so excited, I'm about to squeal like a little girl. LOL!

Karla We should make those darn T-shirts and wear them proudly :). I had a lot of fun with this series. I've decided to keep the books in my personal library so I can reread these books again! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Christy (TheReaderBee) Haha, sounds good! I was thinking of making some bookmarks that said it too! ROFL! I love this series! I bought book 3 yesterday, so now I have the whole collection. Will definitely reread them too! And definitely enjoying the series!

Karla You do make wonderful bookmarks! Great idea ;D
