The Mortal Instruments Series

This series, written by Cassandra Clare has a total of five books, namely City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels and City of Lost Souls. The sixth book, City of Heavenly Fire will be released in May, 2014. I bought Book One: City of Bones. I couldn’t resist the temptation and finished it in 2 days. Right, I’m hooked onto this series.

Well, if you wanna indulge in some kind of fantasy novel; this is the one. It’s about Downworlders. They are hybrid creatures that include the Children of the Moon (Werewolves), the Children of the Night (Vampires), the Children of Lilith (Warlocks) and the Children of Lylic (the Fair Folk, or faeries).

City of Bones is mainly about shadow-hunters (practically mean, demon hunters) who embarked on the journey of fighting demons to retrieve the Mortal Cup (it’s the cause of the problem; everyone is looking for it!). Family secrets and hidden identities are revealed while helping the main mundane character (they call the humans mundane in the book!), Clary Fray to search for her captured mother. They also faced a love triangle and the dangers of forbidden love. And of course, it is action-packed. The story is fast-paced and dramatic; it’s as though you’re one of them, enjoying the action, feeling the anxiety and seeing blood spew all over. Humor is injected throughout the story. That keeps the story alive and funky. The ending is kind of unexpected but nonetheless, it’s sort of a happy ending, although the badass got away.

And you know what? This book is soon to be a major motion picture in the theatres August 2013! Click here for the trailer! 

On a side note, I’m gonna add the name, Jace into the list of names for my future son. Pretty cool name, isn’t it?

  1. I finished reading the City of Lost Souls yesterday and I am in love with her books! I started the Clockwork Angel today and I’m already hooked and starting the second one! I would recommend to read those after you finish the Mortal Instrument Series! They’re just as good and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

    • I will read those once I finish with this series! I just bought the second & third books today. Gonna start reading tonight! 🙂
