Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

"Don't touch any of my weapons without my permission."
"Well, there goes my plan for selling them all on eBay," Clary muttered.
"Selling them on what?"
Clary smiled blandly at him. "A mythical place of great magical power."
"I don't want tea," said Clary, with muffled force. "I want to find my mother. And then I want to find out who took her in the first place, and I want to kill them."
"Unfortunately," said Hodge, "we're all out of bitter revenge at the moment, so it's either tea or nothing."
"That does it," said Jace. "I'm going to get you a dictionary for Christmas this year."
"Why?" Isabelle said.
"So you can look up 'fun.' I'm not sure you know what it means."

"There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then."
— (City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3))
"What's the point in wasting a perfectly good brick wall when you have someone to throw against it, that's what I always say."
— (City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, #4))
"He’d burn the whole world down till he could dig you out of the ashes."

Once again I read too fast & blog too slowly.

The Mortal Intruments Series is one I have wanted to read for quite a while and I was not disapointed!

The series starts out with Clary & her best friend Simon going clubbing in NYC, where they witness a murder... of a demon. They are then thrown into the world of Shadowhunters, who hunt & kill demons. A world that seems crazy at first but she is more connected to it than she ever knew.

Each and every book has a fantastic story and character development. And some insane problem plagueing mankind. The battle of good & evil in it's basic forms: Heavenly beings vs. Hellish demons.

The Shadowhunters are Jace, Isabelle & her brother Alec. All fierce and brave and kick some serious butt. I loved them all. Cameo's of every kind of supernatural beings including Fairies, vampires, werewolves, worlocks, angels and all manner of goulish demons all described with excellent detail. I loved this world they live in.

I really rooted for Jace & Clary and the other couples. This series would be a great summer read. It will hook you in and keep you wanting more. The sixth book will not be released until 2014, so you have time to read them all!

Rating: 5/5 - Best series I have EVER read!
