“We are all the pieces of what we remember. We hold in ourselves the hopes and fears of those who love us. As long as there is love and memory, there is no true loss.”

Oh. My. Gawd. It's been almost 2 weeks since I read the last book in this series and at that point, I was left cuddling on my bed till my parents summoned me out of my room and saw me sniffling. Needless to say, I was beyond wrecked and felt like I was going through a 5-stage grief process throughout

there is so much wrong with these books i dont know where to begin????

but, like...kids, dont have sex in dirty demon caves. ever. dont even bring a condom with you to hell because who does that? who? why?

and thats not even touching on the sexualization and almost fetishistic approach to her canon queer characters (magnus and alec, those very minor female characters if you want to count them). like, i was so uncomfortable? i binge read through the books at first and didnt fully notice until i

These books written by Cassie causes addiction to me! I started reading CoB last year and it was the first fantasy book that I've ever read. The sequels were not arrived in my country yet, so I waited and finally I've finished this book until CoHF! I went the adventures with Clary and Jace or in the other words, CLACE together with them. It was very fun and enjoyable spending my time with them. I love Simon the most! He has been a very good friend to Clary, which he finally gave his memories to ...more

Intriguing, Captivating, Heartfelt & Action Packed! I Loved It!

One of the most entertaining series I've read. I was sad when it ended and wish there was more. All 6 books are full of action, battles and power struggles. I liked the way each story is unique but how they all come together to make a fabulous series. Very glad I read these and hope to be able to come back to them again to re-read.

Okay I know going into the Mortal Instruments series that it's going to be one of those guilty pleasure reads that you can't take too seriously. As a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it definitely kept me hooked on this new universe of supernatural creatures and the teenagers fighting them.

Books 1-3 were quite enjoyable and Cassandra Clare should've ended the series as a trilogy. Come time for books 4-6 and you know she is still cashing in. By this point, the other minor characters are pushed to

The title is saying how you are going to read about a book series called the mortal instruments. Obvious because it has a list of other books in the series on the back. So you ask, should I keep reading on to the rest of the series. If you are into romance, annoying boys who blame themselves for everything, and girls who just AREN’T PARTICULARLY INDEPENDENT. I mean, yes, Clary is an AWESOME character. But all she wants is to be with this annoying dude who like, LOVES THE CRAP out of her, but is

2.5 for half loved, half hated. I enjoyed the series even though there was so much wrong with it. Some books moved a bit slowly and the angsty relationships definitely started to become the, annoying, focus as the story progressed. There were a LOT of perspectives by book 6. So much so that the scenes chopped and changed too quickly for me to really get involved with anyone on a deeper level because, by the time I got comfortable in the scene, it snapped to someone on the other side of the ...more

I never thought I'll be a fan of this series, being a HP and Rick Riordan fan. I fell in love with this book immediately.

All these characters, stay in heart forever.

A short review of all the characters.. Jace.. He has all qualities that make a girl fall in love with him.. handsome, courageous, and ready to die for friends.. And the way he expresses his love for Clary, made me really jealous of her.

Next is Clary.. in the first trilogy, i didn't like her.. But she quickly learnt the ways of shadow

For those who are captivated by a different world where the unimaginable is real. Angels and demons, vampires and werewolves, warlocks and faeries. All these exist. Where no one is just ordinary, but extraordinary. A series based off the works of books like Dante's Inferno and Paradise Lost, with a twist and references to angels and demons like Lilith and Lucifer who reign over hell. A fantastic read that will keep the reader turning the pages not wanting to put the book down. You will fall in ...more

A World filled with Magic, Vampires, Demons, Angels, Werewolfs...and many more...but a new magical creatures which are called "Shadowhunters". Cassandra Clare is an amazing author who writes with care and passion and presents exciting plots and unforgettable characters. The villian Sebastian Morgenstern is one of the most intriguing characters i have ever come to read about, and Jace Wayland (dreamy sigh) are one of my favourite book-boyfriend ever. I adore his arrogance, wild-ness, bravery, ...more

I love this series so much. As the series went on it just got better and better. Although the ending was bittersweet....I still loved it. I adore all the characters and how much they have grown. I love the world and characters Cassandra Clare has created. I definitely will read all her books she has published and the ones that she will publish. She is one of my favorite authors. The way she writes..it just draws you in. Absolutely love her writing.

I love this entire series! recommendation if you loved The Mortal Instruments; Read The Dark Artifices, and all the other books related to this series! (THEY ARE ALL RELATED AND YOU SHOULD READ THEM IN ORDER.)

WARNING: IF YOU WANT TO READ THE DARK ARTIFICES, READ THEM BEFORE YOU READ SHADOWHUNTER ACADEMY!!!

I flew through these books in high school. The premise is exciting, the world is grungy, and the characters felt like realistic teenagers to a fellow teen. (Additionally, this series was at its peak when Ke$ha's career was, so her dirty glitter-bomb, bass-driven music still makes me nostalgic for The Mortal Instruments.)

Recommends it for: everyone!!!
One of my all time favorite series! I loved the characters in these books so much, there was such a great mix of personalities between them. I've never read a series this long that has been able to keep my interest the way this one has, I was so eager to keep reading. I will definitely be re-reading this series in the future:)

One of my favourite book series. Everytime I read them I love them more. I am invested in all the characters and enjoy how as each book progressed we learn more about supporting characters that end up becoming hero’s themselves. Also love all the romantic pairings across the series!

This book series is AMAZING! I mean, how can one not love a dramatic demon-fighting romance story? Clary, Jace, and everyone else go on amazing adventures in this exciting book that Cassandra Clare wrote.
