I actually listened to it twice b/c I kept day dreaming while listening. But would I listen to it twice b/c it was just that good?? Nope.
Good ending. Better than beginning. Took forever to get to the real action. Contemplated getting the 2nd book. Not sure if I will.
I didn't really have a favorite.
I very much enjoyed this trilogy. In fact, I wish the author had not ended the trilogy, but had gone on to tell more stories about the Nephilim. I think there was at least one more story there. If you like stories about shape changers, demon hunters, vampires, werewolves, etc., you will enjoy this trilogy, set in Old England. The characters are well developed. The way I judge a series is this: if I think about it when I am not reading it, and wonder what the characters are going to do next, and review the battle they were just in with my mind, I know it is a good series. This one had me doing that.
Mystery and Fantasy Lover
The story is every bit as good as City of Bones! The characters are intriguing. Pronunciation is occasionally a disruption.
I have been with audible long before they had an app for your phone. I no longer have Insomnia... what a blessing!!!
if I see TEEN in the reviews, it would help me to move along. I do believe that the teen group would love these books.... not so much 30 something.
Enjoyable story with fun twists and turns. Imaginative plot and characters. Left me wanting to know more about each character.
I absolutely loved this book, so of course I got the Audio book. Over all it's a good performance, the only complaint I have is that for some explainable reason the narrator decided to give Gabriel Lightwood an Elmer Fudd accent. It in no way belongs in this kind of story. Other than that she did a fairly good job with the characters.
The story of a young girl in the 1700s traveling to England after the death of her Aunt. She finds herself in a world she only thought existed in the stories. Meeting warlocks, vampires, werewolves, Shadowhunters, and worse of all evil mundanes. It's a great story.
Fairly predictable but great narration and period prose. I felt that it had Enjoyable characters with good development however the plot imply rolled along without many twists or turns.
While people say that I should read the Mortal Instruments books before starting this one, I still went in with this as my first book by Cassandra Clare. I would have to say that she did an awesome job of creating the world and explaining it in a way that I didn't think I had to read anything else prior to this book. It might have helped imagining things, but I was still happy with what is going on.
The story is very interesting and it is a great first book of a series that provide much more to happen, much more to seek from the later books. So many important secrets has yet to be discovered and the ending is such an abrupt one (in a good way) that made me want to rush for the second book right away!
With the 3rd person narration of this book, it adds even greater mystery to the characters as we do not know fully of anyone in the book. She has a great cast going on but I would have to say that I am so looking forward to what is behind Will's story. I haven't had a character I like as much as Will Herondale since quite a while.
Great start to a new series, a new author! Can't wait for more :)
