My grandma gifted me this book for my birthday shortly after its publication, and of course it was impossible to deny reading it back then. For me, it was my first adventure into the genre of Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance, and back then, I definitely enjoyed it (and even reread it later on because I was quite enthralled with Simon's and Luke's characters). If I were to reread it now, it probably wouldn't receive those three stars again - especially now that I've finally read Harry Potter and can understand a lot of the plagiarism claims against Cassandra Clare.

Blasted through it in an evening. Entertaining, though indeed nowhere near as innovative as for instance the Hunger Games. And I'm all for dramatic reveals, but moderaion is key - Clare overdoes it slightly in the last few chapters. Still, I'll probably read the rest, if just because it's an easy read and the story is kind of enjoyable, though some of the characters are slightly annoying :P

I'm not really into YA but I will watch any Urban Fantasy movie no matter what age it is geared towards, so I figured I'd read it before the film came out. It's a pretty easy read so I'll probably continue the series, though I am not devouring it the way I did the Hunger Games books. (2.5 stars)

Update: Five years later and I still haven't cracked the second book in the series; I think it's safe to remove them from my to-read shelf. ( )

Cassandra's writing style is very clean; precise. Her setting descriptions hover on the line of just perfect enough to picture it sharply but stop at just the right moment to let a reader's mind see it in their own imagination.

There are points in this book (and in the other 4 in The Mortal Instruments) where the snappy, sarcasm-perfect dialogue made me laugh out loud.

The Shadowhunters and their powers are well done. It was a fast and easy read.

So why did I rate it two stars? I'll do my best to explain in short points so this review won't get out of hand

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS
Reasons why I rated it 2 star:
1.) The angle of the love story. She chose a very unusual way of taking the traditional, "Invisible wall that keeps two destined to be apart," tension creator. The brother/sister thing was simply too hard for me to sit through comfortably.
2.) TOO fast paced, a little too much dialogue. A lot of over-explaining or explaining things that seemed glaringly obvious.
4.) Predictable story line. Very, very predictable (to me.) I was able to piece together the story line for the next three books thanks to a few obvious dream sequences and such in the first. It's a little cut-and-dry formulaic.

Obviously, these things did not bother me so much as to make me stop reading. But, and I know how awful this makes me to say it--so I'll stick to being honest: I don't consider this book to be serious reading.

It's pretty. It's pink. It's cotton-candy fluff for my brain. I enjoyed reading a much shorter book than I usually invest in...but I wouldn't re-read it, and, I don't think I'll purchase any physical copies. ( )

Right up front, I'm going to confess that I only read this book because I was curious about the lawsuit that Sherrilyn Kenyon filed against Cassandra Clare. Kenyon is one of my favorite authors but I saw no similarities between this series and the Dark-Hunter series.

Clary and her best friend Simon went to a club and Clary was checking out a cute boy when she saw him go into a storage room with another girl. She saw two other boys following him and saw one pull out a knife. She alerted Simon who went to find security.

Clary went to investigate and entered the storage room. She witnessed some unbelievable events. The cute boy turned out to be a demon and the other two boys and the girl were demon hunters or Shadowhunters. They killed the demon who folded in on himself and disappeared.

When Simon and the security guard entered the room, they could only see Clary. She realized they couldn't see the others so she said she must have been mistaken about seeing a boy with a knife.

Clary gets thrown into the world of the Shadowhunters when she is attacked by a monster demon and her mother goes missing. She discovers that her mom has been hiding a lot of secrets from her.

There was a lot of action in this book, almost too much. I just felt overwhelmed at times and felt these kids acted before they thought things out. Maybe it is that I'm too old to connect with the characters.

I'm not sure if I'll continue with the series. Sometimes, the second book gets more familiar with the characters so it helps the reader connect. We'll see what I decide after I go through my “to read” list.

I have not slept.

Between the acting of a dreadful thing

And the first motion, all the interim is

Like a phantasm, or a hideous dream:

The genius and the mortal instruments

Are then in council; and the state of man,

Like to a little kingdom, suffers then

The nature of an insurrection.

- William Shakespeare,
Julius Caesar
I sung of Chaos and Eternal Night,

Taught by the heav'nly Muse to venture down

The dark decent, and up to reascend. . .

- John Milton, Paradise Lost
Facilis descensus Averni:

Noctes antque dies patet atri ianua Ditis.

Sed grandium revocare superasque evadere ad auras;

Hoc opus, hic labor, est.

- Virgil, The Aeneid
The descent beckons

as the ascent beckoned.

- William Carlos Williams, The Descent

"Sarcasm is the last refuge of the imaginatively bankrupt," she told him.
"I can't help it. I use my rapier wit to hide my inner pain."
"Your pain will be outer soon if you don't get out of traffic. Are you trying to get run over by a cab?"
"Don't be ridiculous," he said. "We could never get a cab that easily in this neighborhood."
"Is this the part where you start tearing off strips of your shirt to bind my wounds?"
"If you wanted me to rip my clothes off, you should have just asked."
"If you were half as funny as you think you are, you'd be twice as funny as you are now."
"Jesus!" Luke exclaimed.
"Actually, it's just me," said Simon. "Although I've been told the resemblance is startling."
"Unfortunately", said Hodge, "we're all out of bitter revenge at the moment, so it's either tea or nothing."
