City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare

I’ve been craving some good YA with action, intricacy, and some love. The great thing about this series is that it has it all. THIS IS A REREAD REVIEW. 

While the first book isn’t my favorite in the series, it’s a great start to the overall story. Having read this book probably five years ago now, it was a great refresher to the world of shadowhunters and downworlders.

Clary is dunked into a world headfirst unexpectedly when she begins to see things that her best friend can’t – weird, to say the least. There are twists and turns and continuous moments that keep you on your toes. The characters are wonderfully developed and you can’t help but love each of them for their own quirks and attitudes.

If there was one thing she was learning from all this, it was how easy it was to lose everything you had always thought you’d have forever.

If you’ve not yet read the series, I suggest you do so! I’ll be rereading the series over the next few months as a nice refresher. Then on to Cassandra Clare’s latest series, The Dark Artifices, which takes place five years later.

Who else is with me?!

Rating: 4 stars!

24885537When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.
