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)

Yay! I love the MI series! I'm so glad you guys liked it. Cassie is a great writer. Mi is filled with twists and turns that just satisfied me. Never unexpected.
Oops. Haha. What I meant was never expected and predictable. 🙂
Definitely not!! I think that was the biggest plus in the series, all those twists and turns nobody could expect!
Me again. I have an award for you guys:http://shusky20.blogspot.com/2010/05/blog-award-b…
Awww, LOVE IT. I haven't read the last one, tough. But I am so excited to start reading it. I am so glad you all enjoyed. It's such an amazing series! 🙂
This is another book series I've been on the fence about, and this review just knocked over into the "must-read" side! Great review, girls. 🙂
OooOooOo but you have to read the last one, you need to read it! How could you resist! You are a very strong girl!
You have to, there is no way around this series… so intense feelings and awesome twists and turns…
Ohhhh Thank you sooo much !!! I just saw, *hugs* awesome!!!
heading over to your blog!!
Not my kind of series, but very nice post nonetheless!
OMG… i read them on my last vacation and, as you say, i could NOT put them down!!! These books are AMAZING! And Jace!!!! Oh, Jace. I ended up like Clary, just saying 'Jace, Jace, Jace' over and over again in my head! The ride was exhilirating and i seriously can not WAIT until City of Fallen Angels comes out next year! WOOHOO!
Thanks Julie!! We try our best to write our reviews:) What did you didn't like about the series? I'm just curious! Not everyone can like the same stuff.
Besides, your log layout is awesomeness!!
My hubs was starting to get annoyed with me since I couldn't stop reading:) Jace is awesome for sure! I loved all the dialogues in the book, so much, so entertaining!
Gosh yes, City of Angels I'm sooo happy she decided to write another book. But first we gonna read the first book of the Infernal Device! Wohoo!
I love these books and especially Jace… Cannot wait for City of Fallen Angels. And The Infernal Devices, of course. Cassie is such an amazing writer.
My recent post In My Mailbox (#3)
Jace is an amazing boy for sure! She is truly gifted, I barely read a book that is so packed with unexpected twist and turns! I hope The Internal Device will be as good, I'll read them for sure!
Nice review! I NEED to get my hands on these books! They sound really good:D
Oh yes, go get them and start reading! Hope you like them as much as I did!
Awesome books. Fun and easy to read, very likable characters that just leap from the pages. Cool creatures and places, oh, all the romantic drama that seems to have no chance in hell of resolving happily, yet somehow it does and in a very clever and believable manner.
Waiting impatiently for Cassandra's next books.
My recent post Bel Ami Review
I do agree! =D
It was you holding my hand when I went through this nightmare of ending of City of Bones *hugs*
I never knew and imagines how the hell this all can end well and I loved the end!! Was jzst awesome!
Of all the fictional boys Jace is the one I want the most 🙂 I love Mortal Instruments! Such a great review 🙂
Thanks Cari, writing about awesome books is just fun and I'm glad you enjoyed the review!!
Right before I left work yesterday, I found out that Cassandra as well as Holly Black were in my area, signing books… But I chickened out and didn’t go, especially after seeing that they were advertised as “teen authors”… Of course now I’m thinking that I could’ve had my City of Bones signed *crying a river* 😉
My recent post Bel Ami Review
Nooooo!!! such a chance! And yes we have to face it those books we are reading and love so much , well most of them are YA books. I get that you chickened out, I'm sure me too but on the other site: You would hold now a signed copy in your hands. Holy Shit!
She was in Germany last year, but well I didn't read her books back then so I missed the chance.. ..
I just finished the first one in this series and am about to start the second one what a great read the first one was love your blog and your reviews are great 🙂
