"The Mortal Instruments series is a story world I love to live in. Beautiful." (Stephanie Meyer)
"The story's sensual flavor comes from the wealth of detail: demons with facial piercings, diners serving locusts and honey, pretty gay warlocks, and cameo appearances from other urban fantasies' characters....Lush and fun." (Kirkus Review)
I normally consume plenty of Sci-Fi so I wanted a little break into the fantasy, this book was a great choice. I've seen the trailer for the upcoming film and I thought I would read (hear) the book before the story was ruined. There is plenty of Teenage angst in this book and it did peeve me off a little to have to relieve some of uncomfortable days, but this was balanced with a good deal of action and a evolving and interesting back story. There is good potential here and I can see why a movie company would love to kick off a franchise here. Let's hope that they stay true to the story (Potter Style).
I want to recommend this book to readers (listeners) who like to stay within the vampire, werewolf, witch and warlock sort of genre. No reinventing here but a solid story line so far.
Jase, the rebel without one cause type, and his cause is Demon Hunting.
I love her Brooklyn accent and she managed to nail all the girl voices.
They are so let's hope is a good one.
Love a good book with a great storyline, read by a captivating voice.
The best scifi fantasy book for the year
Harry potter crossed with twilight and the hobbit
a comprehensive depth to the story
It has been good at keeping my attention. Its a good twist on the Twighlight concept with plenty of story lines running through & lots of amusing characters. Easy to listen to.
Overall the narrater is good, which has a huge influence on the book itself. The story line is easy to follow. You can almost visulise the demons flying through the air and the young characters battling to survive. Some aspects are similar to stephanie myers Twilight with a love story intermingled. In summary I really enjoyed the series.
