This book was so intriguing from the get go. I couldn't put it down! Listened to all 4 books of the series in a week- I couldn't stop listening!
So, what do you get when you take a 16 year old New York girl and her family and friends, and throw her into a supernatural world full of action and adventure?? You get this wonderful series, unlike anything I've read, but similar enough that I feel right at home with it's crazy elements. Narrator on the first one is too young (they call this YA, but I don't think so), the second book is better, but this one is hands down the BEST. Hated to finish it-- in three days!! If you like supernatural and romance stuff without crappy over used sex scenes, then you will love this series.
All I can say is this series is perfect. Better than any fantasy/sci-fi (yes, including Twilight) and I CANNOT WAIT for the film and the next book. A must read!!!
I am gonna finish The Mortal Instruments Series only because I don't like not finishing things.
No just from the author and narrator
Different narrator without valley girl nasally voice
Theme/Story is good the writing is not
I wish the author would have moved past the previous assumptions of Jace's parentage and let Claire and Jace find happiness in each other while the rest of the world crumbles instead of making Jace constantly pushing claire away and Claire pushing Jace away for the entire series thus far. Their relationship should have been a constant in this series not in a sad destructive annoying constant but a constant breathe of fresh air in the midst of a world full of downworlders demons and shadowhunters.
Great story line!
I liked the ending the best!
The whole Clary and Jace situation.
I listened to book 1-3 and fell in love!!! I hate reading big books, but these were amazingly done.
Now, starting in book 4, the rest of the series is done by a different narrator? Do they get any better? I don't know if I should just return this and just read the rest of the series.
