Synopsis

Don’t miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture in theaters August 2013.

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.

As Clary uncovers more about her family’s past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he’s willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City—whatever the cost?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third installment of the bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

I started reading this series, but once I got to this book and Sebastians character, I just couldn't continue, I don't know if it was too twisted, maybe I was just so upset that when they said Jace and Clary were siblings, and then made you believe that for multiple books, and then she changed her mind and switched things up? I dont know, I can't bring myself to read the end of this book though!

Great modern urban fantasy involving vampires, elves, werewolves, angels and demons. Despite the "teen fiction" classification, it has enough intrigue and character development to cross the age divide. I would read the book and not see the movie.

I haven't read the entire series yet, but so far this book is my favourite. There is so much going on that you won't want to put the book down, plus we get to see the homeland of the Shadowhunters and meet some "interesting" new charatcers. Not to mention the fact that the last few chapters will have you on the edge of your seat!

This is the third title in the series and I absolutely loved it. I read it over Christmas and was so enthralled by it that I was, in fact, quite rude to my family! A real page turner and I just wanted to devour every last morsel. I love Clare's writing style. She gives little clues all through the books, which have you guessing at possible outcomes. Many of my ideas came to pass but this book had some extra secrets to reveal and I was quite satisfied. I don't want to give too much away but, children and adults alike, will enjoy this if they are into 'coming of age' style fantasy fiction which are packed with action, adventure and touch of romance. It definitely ticked all of my boxes.

December 26th, 2013
An interesting series with believable characters. There are a few annoying gimmicks such as Simon continuously 'dying' and being brought back to life. That device gets tired after the second time. It borders on being overcomplicated, but never crosses the line. This series never gets boring and is a great read overall, especially when it comes to teen-oriented fiction.
