    Clary Fray is seeing things: vampires in Brooklyn and werewolves in Manhattan. Irresistably drawn towards a group of sexy demon hunters, Clary encounters the dark side of New York City - and the dangers of forbidden love.

    typical fantasy

    A little predictable - some recogniseable themes...... Didn't like narrator's voice at all, and in some places I couldn't tell which character she was..Show More »

    With her mother in a coma and her father hell-bent on destroying the world, Clary Fray is dragged deeper into New York City's terrifying underworld of werewolves, demons and the mysterious Shadowhunters. Discovering the truth about her past was only the beginning. Now the fate of the world rests on Clary's shoulders, but can she master her new-found powers and control her feelings for a boy who can never be hers?

    City Of Ashes

    This book continues the story begun in City of Bones and is, in my opinion, every bit as spellbinding as the first. Jace and Clary are beset with enem..Show More »

    Amid the chaos of war, the Shadowhunters must decide to fight with the vampires, werewolves, and other Downworlders - or against them. Meanwhile, Jace and Clary have their own decision to make: should they pursue the love they know is forbidden?

    Epic conclusion

    This is the third book in the series and concludes the events set in motion by the two previous books. Jace and Clary must come to terms with their pa..Show More »

    Simon Lewis is having some trouble adjusting to his new life as a vampire, especially now that he hardly sees his best friend Clary, who is caught up in training to be a Shadowhunter - and spending time with her new boyfriend, Jace. Simon decides he needs a break and heads out of the city - only to discover that sinister events are following him. Realising that the war they thought they'd won might not yet be over, Simon has to call on his Shadowhunter friends to save the day - if they can put their own splintering relationships on hold long enough to rise to the challenge....

    Wonderful

    I love The Mortal Instruments and for the most part because of the complex relationships between the main characters. This is the 4th book in the saga..Show More »

    Jace is now a servant of evil, bound for all eternity to Sebastian. Only a small band of Shadowhunters believe he can be saved. To do this they must defy the Clave. And they must act without Clary. For Clary is playing a dangerous game utterly alone. The price of losing is not just her own life but Jace's soul. Clary is willing to do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him? Or is he truly lost?

    Eloise Oxer has ruined this for me.

    Unfortunately I couldn't get more than twenty minutes in. Nothing to do with the writing, I wouldn't have got this far into the series if I didn't enj..Show More »

    Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon and Alec must flee - even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned. Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the thrilling and long-awaited final installment of the bestselling and acclaimed Mortal Instruments.

    Good story ruined by a crap narrator. Again.

    Loved the book, shame it had to end, but baffled as to why Oxer was used again. Found myself groaning and covering my ears every time she comes on. Wh..Show More »

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Cassandra Clare created the Mortal Instruments in 2004 with City of Bones (Simon & Schuster, 2007). Since then, the series has grown to five books, with a sixth due in 2014, and been joined by two spinoff trilogies and an upcoming film starring Jamie Campbell Power and Lily Collins. Featuring stories by Holly Black, Kendare Blake, Gwenda Bond, Sarah Rees Brennan, Rachel Caine, Sarah Cross, Kami Garcia, Michelle Hodkin, Kelly Link, Kate Milford, Diana Peterfreund, Sara Ryan, Scott Tracey, and Robin Wasserman.

    Dreadful not worth the money

    Some real insight
    I have really enjoyed the books and thought it would be interesting to get a bit more background - this book did not deliver
