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