I read Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones last week and immediately went to the book store and bought City of Ashes (which I devoured like a werewolf with a rare steak). I love these books! They’ve got everything: demons, werewolves, vampires, a weird Luke and Leia brother-and-sister relationship between two of the main characters, really cool weapons, and stuff being destroyed. I wish I were a Shadowhunter (one who hunts demons for those of you not in-the-know). I am devouring these books and will probably reread them in the near future. I cannot wait until the third book comes out! I need to find out what happens to Clary and Jace! These books are highly recommended for high school students and adult readers. You won’t be disappointed!
FYI: I just found out that the third book in Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, City of Glass, will be released on March 25, 2009. I can’t wait that long! Oh, the horror!
