I'm loving this series and feel no hesitation in buying the next one each time I finish one. I'm on the fifth book now. This isn't just for young adults, I'm married with kids and still enjoying it hugely.

I've tried a few of these fantasy series, trying to find something that can follow the brilliance of JK Rowlings' Harry Potter, Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials, Robin Hobbs' original Farseer trilogy or Philip Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind. I'm not saying this is quite at that level, but it comes far closer than dozens of similar books.

It may be that the only thing holding it back from that very top slot is modern publishing methods. Most of the shadowhunter series are sold as full price kindle books, but sadly, the final proofreading has been rushed and a few typos have slipped through. Luckily, the high quality of the writing shines through and you can forgive this. Cassandra Clare is such a great, pacy storyteller that I can't put the books down!

I reserve 5 stars for books that feel life-changing, move me deeply, or give me a unique perspective and perhaps I'm too old for these to do that for me. I would have given this four and a half if I could. What these books give me is a huge amount of entertainment and escapism.

The world is intriguing and makes sense, you can really feel immersed in it. The characters feel real, are full of charisma and are easy to identify with. The cast of characters develops realistically over time, they almost come alive on the page. The dialogue is incredibly natural, full of genuine emotion, hilarious at times and good enough for a screenplay. I also really like the way the characters experience and deal with real life issues.

I'd recommend this series to any fantasy fan.

My teenage daughter has read all of Cassandra Clares books. When the first film came out she begged me to go with her.

I really didn't want to go (thought I was too old) but I realised if it didn't bother my lovely daughter to take her mum then why should it bother me? Maybe I am not the main targeted audience for the film or books but the film was brilliant and the books are great.

I am working my way through the series, the characters are great, the story is exciting and it allows me to escape and read an enjoyable book.

I wish there had been books like this when I growing up but at least I've got the opportunity to read them now.

KARRIE.

I had a rant yesterday about book one and the twist at the end. I'm still pissed about it but I'm still hoping they're not, totally wanna shake Jace after his final speech. . In addition to this, this book helped flesh out a few reoccuring characters in the book well. I have come to love them just as much as the main characters. Especially luke, Alec and Magnus Bane oh and Simon and Max... you get the point. I'll read the next one willingly... but i have to catch up on my homework first, i've been putting it off due to these infatuating books.
