The Mortal Instruments is a Trilogy by Cassandra Clare and fortunately all the books are already out! So you can securely read this review, get addicted and start reading on. No desperate waiting times… (Although, she does write more and you can read about this in one of cuties post. I’m with Stupid)
When fifteen-year-old 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 strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing – not even a smear of blood – to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….
Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.
Danny: Where shall I begin now with this review? There is so much to say, but I think in the ends it comes down that I extremley adored this book. Although the ending is pure pain, truly it is….. so much pain…
“Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?’
Jace said, “Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself.”
…”At least,” she said, “you don’t have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland.”
Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.”
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who’s becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn’t ready to let her go — especially her handsome,
infuriating, newfound XXX, Jace. And Clary’s only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.
Danny: Oh Fire, I’m glad I read them in my vacations, I wouldn’t have been able to work. After you read the first book you cannot NOT read this one. City of Bones ends with such a woohoo effect that it would drive you mad if you are not reading it. This book is again a rollercoaster of emotions! It leaves you breathless and let’s you flipping the pages ( or hitting the Next Page Button on your Kindle). You have to know how it goes on. And believe me when I’m saying you will get pissed! Angry! This book give you all of them! Believe me!
To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters — never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.
FireCrotch: My favorite of the three books…I didn’t want it to end…well until I found out a couple key pieces of information. The characters spend a lot of time in this book being fooled by people, places, and things. Turns out glass isn’t quite as clear as one might think. There are a lot of secrets in this final installment, but don’t worry…all will be revealed!
Danny: Honestly, I cannot say if this one really was the best book for me. But I was so relived when it ended, although I also had mixed feelings, I didn’t want this series to end but at the same time I wanted to know how it will all turn out. Well, this book had some heartbreaking scenes in it, really really heartbreaking and the romance.. *sigh* the romance. I think I had tears in my eyes the last 25%. This was again a roller coaster of feelings and just.so.awesome!
Cassandra Clare has a way with twist and turns so unexpectant that they leave you gasping for air. Yes, I mean it! I cannot even remember books that left me with so many feelings like The Mortal Instruments. I love Cassandra Clare for every word she wrote and at the same time hate her since she left me so speechless and heart broken so often. ( Ok I’m kidding, I love her!!!)
The last book brought all the loose ends together with a fulminant ending!
My heart belongs Jace who is one of the awesomenest characters in the YA literature I ever met. And I blame my lack of english for not having better words to describe him! Jace is such a arrogant, brave, loyal and lovely boy I wished him everything and most of all love, he deserves nothing less!
I truly can’t wait to read more from CC! Thank you!!
Our final Verdict:
Those two Bookworms here are sure, this series needs 5 books!
(I think cutie would agree with us here)
