message 3: by Carly (new)

Carly What is it about is it scifi like?


message 4: by Adriana (new)

Adriana No because someone has taken it out!

Nicole Sanglay (SpeckInTheUniverse) | 86 comments @Sarah - When you've read it, tell me what you think! :D

@Carly - It's actually an urban fantasy. Mostly, the paranormal part of the story centers on Shadowhunters [which I think is a new and brilliant concept], but there are other creatures as well such as vampires, faeries, etc.

@Adriana - Taken it out? I don't think I understand. LOL :)


Aria the Blue Fairy (bluelilyandblue) Read it! :D
I highly recommend it.
I love all of Cassandra Clare's books.
If you are going to read this series be sure to read the Infernal Devices too.

Naomi  (purplebookdragon) | 51 comments i loved them! the first was by far the best of the series, but the others were amazing too.


message 8: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Sanglay (SpeckInTheUniverse) | 86 comments @Sandeelovesbooks - Yeah! Sometimes, I think that Infernal Devices is actually better than the Mortal Instruments. I haven't read Clockwork Prince, though... :P

@Zoe - For me, the best one is the City of Glass :D

haha. Library. (:


Shotgunguyiscool ♉ (ShotgunGuyIsCool) I like Infernal Devices more, partly because I like Tessa more, haha


Aria the Blue Fairy (bluelilyandblue) @Nicole: You definitely should read it especially if you're a JEM fan! :D
I am so I really enjoyed it.
You'll see a different side of him.

You'd love it @Adriana.


message 15: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Sanglay (SpeckInTheUniverse) | 86 comments @Shotgunguyiscool and @Sandeelovesbooks - I'm going to buy Clockwork Prince soon, then! XD But I can't decide which character I prefer, Will or Jem :/

@Adriana - Yay! I hope you enjoy reading it! :D And I didn't get the thing with the library because the libraries here in our town don't have any fictional books. :(


Jasmine Dgk Ramos   (modernscrolls) I've only read the first one but I loved it!

You should continue reading! The 2nd book will blow you away, and for me, the 3rd book is the best one. :D


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* | 102 comments Ahh I'm a sucker for Mortal Instruments. I love the characters and the atmosphere ... It's a very exciting story, plus I love the humor. I also love The Infernal Devices. :)


message 19: by Naomi (new)

Naomi  (purplebookdragon) | 51 comments yeah, the infernal devices is amazing too. i think i even like it better than the mortal instruments. i can't wait for the new when. any one know when its comeing out?


Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!* | 102 comments Hmm, I'm not sure which I like better. I might like Infernal Devices better, too ... I just love the setting, and I also think the love triangle aspect is more interesting. Oh, and Clockwork Princess doesn't come out until February 2013. :/


message 21: by Gabrielle (new)

Gabrielle (gabshi) It sounds good and looks good, but is it worth the read? Would I be wasting time by reading it?

These books are so incredible you have to read them!!! And the prequel trilogy is really good too :)

First, let me explain that I was never a paranormal reader - after the whole Twilight debacle, I stayed as far away from vampires and werewolves as possible. Then, I read The Mortal Instruments (and I can't say that I knew much about them going in, so I didn't really know how heavily paranormal it was going to be).

And I read this series and it was absolutely amazing. As in, I sped through all 4 (and the 5th came out as I was reading them) in one day each. And then felt empty when there were no more of them to read.

They are most certainly worth the read.

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 304 comments Mod
I'm very similar! I like some paranormal books but not into vamps that much but I loved this series!!!


message 28: by Ally (new)

Ally Yeah, I'm not much of a vampire person. There are only a handful of books that can pull it off well enough for me to enjoy (this included).

This series got me into paranormal books.


message 29: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (mandamichele) I've just finished Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince. I absolutely loved them and I am afraid I'll be disappointed with The Mortal Instruments.


message 30: by Desiree (new)

Desiree | 1 comments I love the entire series, both, The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. They are soo good. As a matter of fact I just finished "City of Lost Souls"
And I just can't wait for the movie! :)

Thanks, Ally! ;)

Samantha (ajumbleofbooks) This is an amazing series! I read this series after a friend of mine raved about it and I don't regret reading it a bit! :)
