Book Review & My Thoughts-The Mortal Instruments Series

The Mortal Instruments series is a supernatural story with an exciting twist. It has three books in the series and fourth one is coming April 2014. The plot is extremely desirable. Once you start, you simply cannot stop.The series takes your mind and bends it to make you love the characters. The characters are loving, humorous, dangerous, and of course, mysterious. The way the author can imagine a world with fantasy, amazes you. The world of Shadowhunters is something new to the shelves and classic to the heart.I bought the first book on iBooks not knowing anything about it at first because i had bought other books that i had already knew of, and i wanted to read them first.. BUT when i started reading it i didn't pause once till I finished it, and then I started the other two and did the same. I can’t wait for the fourth book to come out.
"When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes(human) like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. "

Most books turned movies usually suck compared to the books,excluding harry potter. Its funny how Alot of people compare "The Mortal Instrument" to "Twilight" or harry potter as if those were the only books ever written in the history of the mankind. The stories about vampires and werewolves exists long ago and thousands of writers are using these as materials to create a new and different stories. 
I personally liked "Twilight Saga" when I first read it and so does "The mortal instruments". They are unique in their own stories. I loved The Mortal Instruments series not because it is “like” Twilight. I love it because of the plot, the characters and the world that the writer created.
"The mortal instruments" might not have as many fans as twilight Yet but i am hopeful the director will do it justice in the movie format so more people can see the awesomeness of "Cassandra Clare". The only similarity between "The Mortal Instruments" and "Twilight Saga" is that they have vampires and a love triangle,other then that they just can’t be compared. They are on two completely different fields. It has the magic/fantasy of Harry Potter and the Romance of Twilight, although the relationships in this series are much more complex, interesting and relate-able. I think it’s very cute. The sarcasm in it is perfect

Can't Wait for the Movie! 

I definitely recommend it if you like fantasy fiction and books with vampires and werewolves. These are my thoughts on the whole series. If you want me to review each book separately then let me know in the comments below and don't forget to read the book before watching the movie!
