Review: City Of Bones Book 1 of The Mortal Instruments By: Cassandra Clare

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Clary Fray is going to be introduced to a world that mixes and mingles with the rest of us. A world filled with the Nephilim, angels, demons, werewolves, and vampires - with sorcerers and pixies. It takes only a moment to see people that no one else does, to watch the destruction of another being that no one else seems to see or acknowledge that begins her path. As this "new" world is unlocked, her mother is kidnapped, a cup that is the "holy grail" of the shadowhunters must be located, and a man that many thought was destroyed has risen with an army - as the story progresses so does the mystery and the depth of secrets unveiled.

Oh, how I wanted to love this book, I was excited to begin it and then - nothing. A good storyline, somewhat predictable, the characters are ok but not enough for you to continue the series and feel for them (I think the best character was a minor secondary that appeared, disappeared, and reappeared many pages in between - Magnus Bane). Maybe the series gets better, afterall there are so many people that recommend this, but I think there are other books I want to get to before getting to them.
