City of Bones has a lot going on inside the story. The cover for a start is bit over the top makes out to be more romantic than it is. I might be one of the last bunch out of goodreads who only just read this. So many readers have this as read and voted for it as good story, I can see why in some ways but I felt it was too over crammed with things going on. Information overload and tried a bit too hard into making it a good story with a dialogue that just lost me being really engrossed into the story. The story has Shadow Hunters and Half Demons, vampires, werewolves, warlocks and few other beings. Clary discovers and is in search of truth in how these worlds and beings have a place in her life. There is The Mortal Instruments, that include an important Mortal Cup that can create Shadow Hunters, fighters destroyers of demons of evil. I have just read The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong which is also an urban fantasy and the first in a series voted highly by readers. I found The Summoning and Chloe really worked for me, the story really got me so much more engrossed, maybe the less elements of supernatural characters or shall we say healthy dosses of it and of dialogue in a story the better and the return to grass routes story telling through the eyes of these young female protagonists the better also. I will be looking forward to following Kelley Armstrong's Chloe in unchartered territory in book 2 The Awakening Of The Darkest Powers series. When it comes to vampires I still prefer Anne rice Interview With a Vampire so far.
Oh yeah Who's you're Daddy! Lol if you've read the book you will know what I mean.
I must be A Falcon tonight Shadow Hunter of the skies.
