City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
I’ve been hearing about the Mortal Instruments series for a long time but never really thought it would interest me. It turns out that I did enjoy the first book in the series but I’m not really sure why. The story was fairly predictable and yet I found myself wanting to know what happened next.
Clary is a fifteen year old who begins seeing people that nobody else can see. When her mother disappears she relies on Jace, a mysterious shadowhunter (demon slayer) to help her find her mother. Clary learns some truths about who she is and the life she came from.
The characters were great, I will say that. They will keep me reading the series. I confess to not being a fan of big mythology type books. I felt that parts of the stories were very similar to other books and movies that I’ve enjoyed, specifically Star Wars. In the end, I can recommend it for great characters and a well paced story. It’s not the greatest book I’ve ever read but I still had fun reading it.
