Book Description

6 Oct 2011 The Mortal Instruments
Clary Fray is seeing things: vampires in Brooklyn and werewolves in Manhattan. Irresistibly drawn towards a group of sexy demon hunters, Clary encounters the dark side of New York City - and the dangers of forbidden love.

City of Bones
Sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is an ordinary teenager, who likes hanging out in Brooklyn with her friends. But everything changes the night she witnesses a murder, committed by a group of teens armed with medieval weaponry. The murderous group are Shadowhunters, secret warriors dedicated to driving demons out of this dimension and back into their own. Drawn inexorably into a terrifying world, Clary slowly begins to learn the truth about her family - and the battle for the fate of the world.

City of Ashes
With her mother in a coma and her father hell-bent on destroying the world, Clary is dragged deeper into New York’s terrifying underworld of werewolves, demons and the mysterious Shadowhunters. Discovering the truth about her past was only the beginning, now Clary must save the world from her own father – the rogue Shadowhunter Valentine. With two of the Mortal Instruments at his command, Valentine is assembling an army of demons to wage war on the council of Shadowhunters and destroy them once and for all. As the battle begins, Clary must face her darkest fears – and come to terms with her feelings for a boy she wishes wasn’t her brother.

City of Glass
Amid the chaos of war, the Shadowhunters must decide to fight with the vampires, werewolves and other Downworlders - or against them. Meanwhile, Jace and Clary have their own decision to make: should they pursue the love they know is forbidden?

"The Mortal Instruments series is a story world I love to live in. Beautiful".Stephenie Meyer, author of Twilight

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing fantasy series in a great boxset! 5 Dec 2010
I spent a week (that's how addicted I was) reading these books this summer, one after one from the library. I fell in love! After saving for a few weeks I bought myself this boxset, and it's so GORGEOUS! The books are large, chunky and shiny, with beautiful, high res images on them, they feel great to hold and carry and just generally make me happy! :)
These are amazing fantasy novels that twist and turn through romance, action, magic and a whole host of fantasy creatures and lands whilst still being set in New York!
The main plot centres around Shadowhunters, who are basically demon slayers and Clary's journey to become one after accidently bumping in to some on a night out.
At first City of Bones can be a little difficult to get in to, but trust me, once you're a few chapters in you'll be hooked!
If you're a twilight or harry potter, or just fantasy fan this is a great series to make a start on!
Go ahead!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mortal Instruments Series Review 2 Sep 2010
Since i'm impatiently waiting for Clockwork Angel to arrive (finally was dispatched yesterday) i decided to do a sum-up review at Cassandra's Clare The Mortal Instruments series (sequel of the Infernal Devices which include Clockwork Angel). I will try not to spoil more than the summaries have already done. Actually i will not spoil at all. Read it :)

First of all, on Clare's writing style. What i can say...i love it. After Harry Potter i couldn't believe i could find a same-style world story to enjoy. Most of them were copying it or they were too predictable for me. And then it showed up! City Of Bones was translated in Greek by Platypus Publications. First i was amazed by the cover (i found really important a book has a good and attractive cover) and then i read the summery. I bought and finished it in less than 24 hours. Same came with the rest two books which i purchased in English. I have to admit that i love Clare's writing more than Rowling's. I do love HP but sorry guys TMI topped it for me(HP fans don't kill me). Clare write in a simple way which make you understand perfectly the situation and the places. It's really easy to become one with the book and live in her world. Also i like her humor much more and how she puts her characters in. Finally a book which hasn't a miserable main character or something like that. They all know why they are there and they are accepting what's is going on in a normal way. According to their personalities of course.

Now on the stories and the characters what i can say? Claire is female character which i admire! Seriously! Most girl characters are either too cowards either too b***s. I can read about her again and again. She is normal! Same goes for Isabelle. Well, actually sometimes you will hate her and sometimes you will love her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awe. Some. 5 Feb 2011
I have to admit that I was a Twilight fanatic before I read this series. Now, I am a Cassandra Clare fanatic. It's a lot less "mormony" than Twilight, and I love the sarcastic humour. The twists physically knock the air out of you, and I adore these books.

I have to admit that I prefer the Infernal Devices: Clockwork Angel book, but Cassandra Clare writes a good story. Must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware - highly addictive! 20 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I cannot lie, I began reading these books and completed all three within a few days, I could not stop reading. I intended to only read the first and then ration myself - completely not doable! Am desperately awaiting the forth book now. The characters are varied, interesting and Clary inparticular is very likeable.
Set in New York, these books are a good mixture of magic, mayhem, plot twists, romance and of course a little violence. Based around the secret world of the shadowhunters who have the difficult role of policing the creatures of the underworld; such beings as vampires, werewolves, demons, fae etc.
If you liked twilight, vampire diaries etc you'll love these books!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book series. Simple as. 29 July 2010
By Kat :)
I read these books along time ago but decided to buy this box set, so that I had a hardback version. This box set is great, the books are beautiful, and shiny :) and it arrived quickly and in excellent condition.
The Mortal Instruments series is just brilliantly written, the characters are well-described, along with the places and settings. It's full of quirky quotes that are hilarious and laugh out loud funny. Especially Jace and Magnus's lines.
These books include very different storylines to others of this type of genre, the characters are so real and you understand them. What makes it great is the humour, and obviously the many love stories that evolve through the series.
It contains action, comedy, and romance throughout, and I would recommend these books to everyone. I can't wait for City of Fallen Angels and The Infernal Devices.

This a wonderful romance for young adults-male or female.
It grips you from the very start and I'm glad it doesn't have any weird names in it(like from Harry Potter) because it would make THIS story sound unrealistic.The book is about a group of teenage demon hunters and two people fall for each other when they weren't supposed to. If you don't want any spoilers then don't read on! And girls, the main guy is about as hot as Edward Cullen and Jacob!!!!!

I loved reading about Jace and Clary falling in love because it was so awkward for Jace because he believes love is a weakness.The whole idea of demon-killing Shadowhunters is wonderful and really interesting. You sort of wonder halfway through if some of the characters are the way they are because they've been trained to be Shadowhunters from a very young age.

The story is addictive right from the start and it has a shocking,heartbreaking ending. The end of this book,litrally broke my heart.
