If I went on to tell you all the things I loved about “The Mortal Instruments”, we’d be here forever.
The whole series had me captivated the entire two weeks I read them. Yes, that’s right, I said TWO WEEKS! Once I started the series, I could not put it down until it was completed. Well, mostly completed, to the exception of “City of Heavenly Fire” that is.
Wow! These books were just amazing.
I was up most nights just trying to get to the end of this series because it was just that addicting. I may not have looked my best those days, but at least I knew what happened to Jace, Clary, Simon and the gang.
I had originally saw the movie first and thought, “Wow, if the movie was that good, the books have to be better.” And I was right! They were even better than I imagined.
I’ll admit that the thought of fallen angles, shadow hunters, and world packed full of every supernatural creature you could think of would confuse me, but I was wrong. I am happy to be. It is my favorite series of books so far.
Now, if I could just get my hands on a copy of “City of Heavenly Fire,” the final installment. May 27th could not come soon enough!
My Rating: 5/5 stars!
