Hello to all of you readers! Today we’re discussing the Shadowhunters (Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare) television series because…season two has been released! Being a huge fan of the book series, last year I had decided to try the show, and ended up enjoying it. There is a movie based on the first book, City of Bones, although I personally prefer the show.
If you have not yet read Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, I highly recommend you do. Considering? Check out our review here.
The improvement in the show compared to season 1 is incredible! I have to confess that I did get pretty bored during season 1, but the new episodes are way more action packed. The characters’ personalities are more clearly identified now that you’ve got used to them, so the story gets more into depth now.
However, I would have given season 2 a much higher rating if the show followed the book plot line better. It stays somewhat relative to it, although they definitely added a handful of new characters, and a few unfamiliar events. Overall though, they are doing a great job with season 2, and I hope they continue to produce for many more.
