Staff Review: Hannah writes: The Mortal Instruments trilogy (Book 2 is City of Ashes, Book 3 is City of Glass) is urban fantasy at its best. You will be lured instantaneously into the world of Werewolves, Vampires, Faeries and the Shadowhunter: a secret tribe dedicated to ridding the earth of grotesque demons. Invisible to us folk, these mysterious warriors are covered in gold-like tattoos, wield bizarre and deadly weapons, possess incredible speed and strength and have the power of the sight. They are also super cool! The characters in this trilogy are brilliant and a lot of fun and the plot is a non-stop whirlwind of action, suspense, adventure, excitement and romance. It'll have you hooked in no time.
Plus, once you are hooked you can get into Clare's brand new Infernal Devices trilogy (which is actually a prequel series to this one), starting with Clockwork Angel, out now).
