1.0 out of 5 stars I'm glad I rented this elsewhere, so I could return it. 9 July 2013
By Dragon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Okay, if you are going to write a companion, actually write a companion. I'm sorry to say this was a terrible disappointment. It is literally written with no context, and 'deep thinking questions' for paragraphs....with no context. I.E Alec is selfish, he does this selfishly, Magnus breaks up with him, because he tries to kill him. "Should Magnus forgive Alec?". Not only does this one example not explain anything other than an opinion of a character, it isn't even accurate,(It's also a basic rundown, not an exact quote, I won't let this drivel in the house) you need more of the story if you are going to ask questions. It's written in an easy to follow style, but I literally skipped most of the book, then actually read the books again. A word to the wise? Wikipedia, Google or spark notes/cliff notes would provide more accurate and professional summaries than this thing, ask your questions online, or just read the actual book. I've never read this woman's work before, and I never will again. Fans should avoid, and people who want to know about the series should, as before mentioned, find their answers online, or read the novel. Now I'm going to go read a book that doesn't make me loose faith in humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only guide you'll need to this series 28 Nov 2013
By Kim Heimbuch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
With the best selling book City of Bones hitting theaters this summer 2013, this companion guide is a must-have book for anybody who has read the Mortal Instruments series or even for people who have plans or want to read them. It is broken up into nineteen chapters and walks the reader through every character, every plot twist, scheme, theme, and questions everything there is about the details of this book that a reader might not even question or think about.
“Here, in the underworld or shadow realms, Jace’s soul can return to his body only through either necromancy, black magic, or the divine grace of an angel o God, who uses its right and to put the soul back.”
I like how the author, Lois H. Gresh, devotes an entire chapter to bad boys and rates each of them on a scale of 1 to 10. She then gives all the details on that bad boy, like Sebastain Verlac, rated a 10, who is a charismatic murderer and has bloody plans to kill an entire population, and Gresh describes him as having “all the qualities of a hero, just in reverse.”

While I haven’t read City of Bones (it’s on my read list), this book totally has me anticipating reading it, especially with the movie about to come out. The book has a way of working up this energy that describes it with so much passion and detail that you already start to feel a deep connection with the characters and their world. Definitely pick this book up. You won’t regret it.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible and ridiculous 31 July 2013
By Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've read many companion books and this one is a complete waste of time! This provides no further insight into the series and I just feel like I'm reading the author's personal random thoughts on this book. For example, one of the chapters is rating, from 1 to 10, which characters are more evil. Pointless and stupid to the point I stopped reading after about 3 chapters and probably should have stopped sooner. The Shadowhunters and Downworlders book is a much better companion book: Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Mortal Instruments Reader
