Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mortal Instruments Lost my self in this book. Felt such a connection to these characters, my heart rose and sunk with each of them during their challenges and victories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!! I loved all of theses books. Personally, I do believe it's more a teenage series of books but as a twenty year old the story kept me going and brought you in to their world. I've always loved this genre of reading and believe that theses books were great! Also an easy read which is nice. Sometimes you simply need your mind to wonder and leave space to imagination! Perfect books!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book... Series dragged, but good read This book is interesting and hooked me in after the first couple chapters. The series is long however and can seem to drag a little throughout the novels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mortal instruments series I loved these books. Was hooked on the first chapter and couldn't stop reading them til the end! I'm pretty single minded about the stories I like. I tend to read until I finish when I like a story enough. This was no exception

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mortal Instruments Tepid reading material enough to pass the time. Perfect for teens

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not completely horrible... For starters, I have only read the first two so perhaps this review is not entirely well founded. I think the average teenager would probably like these books but as a fairly well educated twenty year old they were not well developed enough for me. The story line was generally interesting but it was the type of writing that leaves you reading until your eyes get sore but as soon as you stop you realize you have gained nothing and probably hardly remember what you just read. I think they could have been a fairly enjoyable read, if mindless, but the whole unrequited love thing drives me crazy and the love hexagon they had going on here was incredibly frustrating for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mortal Instruments This series is what I've been looking for. Something along the lines of fantasy while in the modern world and incorporating the supernatural into it. Clare does an excellent job with the characters. You begin to want them all as your best friend. Each book has made me obsessed with this story and I can't put any of the books down once I start!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Absolutely LOVE this series and it deserves all the praise. Clare writes in such a way that you really connect with the characters and are drawn to them regardless of their differences. Many novels are quite predictable, and even with all the complications woven throughout this series, I keep finding myself shocked and caught off guard because I don't expect many things. I would personally recommend this to any reader!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Loved these books - the best Christmas reading ever. I read them one after another and couldn't to see how the story unravelled. Cassandra Clare is now my favourite author. I can't wait for the next book - May seems such a long way off :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This book, along with the rest of the series shows extreme amount in effort within the characters. I find that this series is not all about saving the world or fighting demons; but finding out who we are, and what we can do to help in this world and how we can be useful to each other. Showing love, loss and death; and the effects it can have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awsome i bought it about 6 mounts ago and i haven't putten it down once. ah...it's amazing

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat series, but a tad annoying if you're going all in The series becomes a tad bit repetitive. If you're like me and burn through a series this one can be a bit trying. I always come back to it though. I found a needed a break in between to break up the "wait didn't that just happen in the last book". The main char is a tad whinny too. Something will make you come back - but it is like the supporting cast :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! A mix of Harry Potter and Twilight! I bought this series with no expectations. LOVE IT! It is a mix of Harry Potter and Twilight done right. I Have already bought #4 and is waiting on #5 to be released. I have also purchased the Infernal Instruments series and cannot wait to read. I recommend this series to anyone who is looking for something fun, exciting and a little dangerous at the same time.!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unreal Series! After a long list of book reads that left dissapionted and hopeless in the creativeness and uniqueness of Young Adult novels, this series returned the hope and restored the love i have for young adult novels.The characters were brilliantly developed, the plot was new and exciting with a mix of supernatural romance (a favourite in todays novels), and the writting was everything i hoped for and more. It was funny and witty as well as heartwarming. For those of you looking for a review short and sweet and straight to the piont, here it is: this series is about a young girl names clary fray, she thinks shes a normal girl until she see something and someone mysterious at a club with her best friend. It turns out to be that clary is nephilim. A mix of a little bit of family disfunction, family secrets, love trianlges or should i say love square?, angels, demons, secret socities, incest, and good old teenage angst. But in all honesty if you like books that have great characters, great plots along with the potential to make you laugh and cry as well as keeping you intrigued, this book is for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my all time favorites! These books are great..i could never put them down and are full of action and surprising twists that will keep you wanting more...i am currently reading the newest book "Clockwork Angel" which is the trilogy's prequel, and so far it hasn't disappointed :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to read them all! I loved this series - I read through them at a crazy pace because i wanted to see where the story went. I had read this series all the way through more than once and still found it a very good read. Very creative fantasy world with really great charcters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Read An amazing novel with an excellent story line that keeps you interested throughout. Betrayl, family, love, hate and angels all combined to create a suspensful novel full of hairbbending turns and dramatic revalations. A fun novel to read for anyone over the age of 14 who likes the supernatural, hot guys, tough girls and a few laughs thrown in.
