The Mortal Instruments City of Bones – Cassandra Clare

Just to let everyone know this is my second read of this book and I intend on re-reading this whole series again so along with my book marathon I will also be doing a little review marathon on all the books in The Mortal Instruments series, I hope to read them as quick as possible but I am reading a few books in between so just keep your eyes peeled for the next installment in the series…

On to the review!

As I’ve already told you all this isn’t my first read of this book. I originally read this book a good couple of years ago and I was reminded on just how much I adored this world and everything in it! It is and always will be one of my favourite series of books! On the second read I realised all the things that I missed on the original read so I suggest if you read and love this book as much as I did then definitely read it multiple times, if that’s possible…

The main story line to this book revolves around a young 15 year old girl named Clary living in Brooklyn New York. One night, whilst in a club (casual) she witnesses a group of mysterious teenagers kill this boy. This boy turns out to be a Demon and the group of teenagers are Shadowhunters, beings with half human blood and half angel blood, set on this earth to hunt and kill Demons. Clary suddenly realises that her life will never be the same again…

I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH I CAN’T DESCRIBE AHHH! The world is just so beautiful and perfect and I so wish I was a Shadowhunter because their lives are just so cool! But let’s talk about Jace Wayland, one of the Shadowhunters Clary meets, he is the one that also has the biggest impact on her. Some of the things he comes out with are just so perfect, he’s sassy and sarcastic and all around pretty amazing. Jace isn’t the only brilliant character in this book there are countless unforgettable characters like Alec, Isabelle, Magnus and the infamous Valentine Morgenstern. It’s jam- packed with awesomness.

Another of my favourite parts of this book is that there are some AMAZING plot twists that no one will expect! The first time I read this I was like ‘WHAT?!?’ literally every five minutes!

I have countless praise for this book but I highly doubt you want to hear me rattle on and on about how awesome this book is (it’s truly amazing), just trust me and read it, if you’re a fan of fantasy then this is the perfect series of books for you! It’s not surprising that i’m awarding this books a massive 5 out of 5 stars * * * * *!

Keep your eyes peeled for the review for the 2nd book (it will be coming soon-ish).
