Sorry it’s been so long since the last time I posted something, I was at camp for the last two weeks!
I had always considered reading this book, but was skeptical about it. By the time I finished reading the first page though, I was sucked into the story and ended up finishing it in two days! Make sure to see the TV series on Free form after you read the book.
This book starts in the depth of action, and makes you curious to what’s going on; the story pulls you in instantaneously. I fell in love with nearly everything about this book; it had so many great cliffhangers and characters! This novel is most certainly interesting the entire way through, and it won’t be leaving you twiddling your thumbs. Being slightly older than the books that are popular today such as The Hunger Games, it seems to be that not many people my age have read it.
Sixteen year old, Clary Fray lives only with her mother, and she would be surprised to find how many secrets her only family hides. Clary thinks she lives a normal life, with her best friend Simon, until her mother goes missing and she learns she is a Shadowhunter; this means her job is to protect people from demons. Little does Clary know, there is much more to what makes her unique than just that.
She is soon introduced to the Institute, where she learns what her mother tried to protect her from her entire life. There, Clary meets three Shadowhunters: Alec, Jace, and Isabelle, and with them she sets out to save her mother, and along the way, the four teenagers slowly unravel their past.
