Clary is your average teenage girl... or so she thinks until she goes to a night club and sees three teenagers slay a demon. The Shadowhunters are a  group of people trying to keep the world safe from the evils that lurk in the shadows. Clary finds out that her mother is was a Shadowhunter  and had taken Clary away from that life when she was a baby. Her mother had taken her to a Sorcerer and had her charmed, so that she would forget anything supernatural she saw, every year on her birthday. Unfortunately she was unable to take her on her 16th birthday. Days after Clary finds out what she is her mother disappears. So Clary goes to the three teenage Shadowhunters she met at the club, Isabel, Alex, and Jace, hoping for some answers. She stays them while they try to figure out this mystery. When the fabled Mortal Instruments turn out to be part connected to her mothers disappearance everything gets even more confusing. Everyday her relationship with Jace gets stronger until she is in love with him. Unfortunately an revelation at the end of the first book makes it impossible for them to ever be together. A revelation that cause be to throw a book at the wall for the first time ever. If you keep reading to the end of the series it's okay again but it was very upsetting to me that they couldn't be together. These books were very hard for me to put down and I read them each in a day. These are very good books for fans of Twilight and Buffy.

I have to be honest.  As bad as the Twilight series is... one can actually read those books and actually push through them.  The Mortal Instruments?  Not so much.  This review centers primarily on the first book in the series: City of Bones.  It's the only one I read.  And if one creates a data point for it, I'll happily move this review over there.  Until then, this will do.      I pick up a lot of young adult literature.  …

Buffy Summers has got nothing on Clary Fray! And who needs Angel when you have Jace Wayland on your side? Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments has everything that Buffy has and more! Complicated relationships? Check! Demons, Vampires and Werewolves? Check! Warlocks? Check!!    Cassandra Clare has created a fantastic world that is right in front of our noses; we just can't see it... yet.  Clarissa Fray thinks that she's a normal teenager, and her mother has gone …
