Mortal Instruments: Book One
I've grown bored of books with only vampires and have moved on to a combination of vampires, werewolves, faeries, and other fantasy sort of creatures. This led me to the first book in a new series called The Mortal Instruments. At the pleading of 3 8th graders, I read City of Bones in one weekend. I enjoyed it more from a curiosity standpoint than anything. I wanted to know what had propelled these 3 to beg me to read it. It certainly was intriguing with a combination of magic, fantasy, romance, and all kinds of mythical creatures. Thankfully, the 2nd and 3rd books are already released so I can move on to the next one without the months of wait time that usually prevail. The author, Cassandra Clare, has a website dedicated to all of her stuff but this series has it's own site here.
