I was never xpecting anything from this but an Dark Awakening entertaining and maybe a little bit forgettable book I was wrong I found this completely unforgettable For being a trainwreckTo be uite honest I think 75% of the hype for this series comes from nostalgia Listen I m sorry I know this isn tverything but I really don t get why these first three books are hyped on any level Not only do I have ten million problems with the tropey nature and the slutshaming and the Hawks Way (Hawks Way etctc Family Men etc it s also just boring and also I hatevery single character I hated almost Creative Participation everything about this until book three which I thought was okay because it didn t take me four months you think I m kidding and also fornding the incest plotline Yeah thatListen I am not opposed to fun trash I read The Infernal Devices this year and it was fantastic and books two and three basically Sabina Spielrein emotionally killed me inside But this was not fun for me Okay so first of all because we ve all talked about this The Mortal Instruments is kind of based off Cassandra Clare s Harry Potter fanfiction no I m not kidding and it is painfully obvious There are basic things like that humans are known as mundanes while in Harry Potter they are known as muggles But then there s also the fact that the characters kind of feel like not good fanfiction interpretations of various Harry Potter characters Our redheaded lead character Clary Fray is a slightly stupider version of Ginny Weasley Her love interest Jace Wayland isssentially Draco Malfoy if Cognitive Radio Networks everyonexcused his actions because he s super hot I really don t like Jace Jace becomes a member of the Ripoff Death Eaters in like book two because his father is Ripoff Voldemort his name is Valentine which is actually hilarious Simon is Harry again not a very good one and Isabelle is Hermione if Hermione were there Personnel Management in Government exclusively to be slut shamed by the angelic virgin protagonist I mostly said this to point out how utterly fucking dull these characters are but listen I m not actually wrong about this If you match the characters up to her fanfiction which is not hard the pairings fit You know that thing I linked up above Well it discusses how the fanfiction trilogy I mean kudos for that dedication isndgame DracoGinny and HarryHermione with subtext between HarryDraco I m so sorry I m laughing typing this The Out of This World endgame of this series is JaceClary and SimonIsabelle with subtext between JaceSimon Do you think I m kidding But listen you d think that after ripping from fucking Harry Potter Clare would ve at least come up with something interesting I mean fiction doesn t have to be original to be good But again it s basically boring boring boring offensive boring jace is hot chapter boring I don tven know where I m going with this I just need you all to know that this originated as Harry Potter fanfiction Although I will point out that the original fanfiction this was based off of got taken off fanfictionnet after plagiarism accusations And then there were Sherrilyn Kenyon s plagiarism accusations I mean I think fanfiction and original fiction used to be considered very different things in a way they almost aren t today but it s important to knowAnyway I ve The Time It Never Rained established at this point that the characters are flat it s all painfully derivative and the books themselves are boring But there is so much Beyond the issue of Clary s I m not like other girls thing there s also the issue of messily handled lgbt stuff So yes it s 2005 and I m willing toxcuse this a little bit Alec Lightwood s The Child of the Soul and Other Stories entire presence in this book is to Create Some Angst through homophobia and it feels so much like a plot device not going to lie While it s fair to mention that Cassandra Clare has improved her lgbt rep severalsapphic friends of mine would like to notify you that The Dark Artifices is awesome wrt this it s not good in this series Alec is barely a POV character in the first three books of the series despite being marketed as a major character and feels super tokenistic Also just his treatment At one point in this series his mother who is a supposedly likeable character tries to kill him and his boyfriend for being gay which he forgives her for how There is later on a lot ofxplicit biphobia towards Magnus who is my favorite I love Magnus that is not subverted or criticized at all and in this book Childrens Phantasies especially there s an intonation of that slutty bi trope though the character is allowed to develop beyond that man it is there You re not gay are youSimon s greenish color deepened If I were I would dress better this is not funnyNo Cassandra Clare would rather focus on somethinglse a sideplot where Ripoff Ginny Weasley believes Hot Draco Malfoy is her brother for two fucking books It is xactly as terrible as it sounds For two full books I had to live through Ripoff Ginny Weasley s angst over her crush on her brother and about their forbidden love or whatever the shit Yes I KNOW view spoilerthey ventually realize they weren t related But here s the thing they re still in love when they believe they are hide spoiler A great and interesting.

Books I manages to combine the infulences from many of top fictional series of our time It combines hidden magic world of Harry Potter the teenage drama of Buffy and a couple of themes from Star Wars as well The book is very well written and fast pacesWe follow Clary Fray a 15 year old misfit trying to find heself not uite sure if she is goth cyberpunk or just a temperamental teenaged artist One night in the local club Pandemonium she realises she is a witness to an attack the strange thing is that the victim of the attack disappeared right before her The Soviet Union eyes and when security arrives despite the attackers standing right in front of them she is the only one who can see themClary descovers she is part of the world of Shadow Hunters and demons Shadow Hunters are demon slayers She learns stories of Vampires and Warewolves are truth than fiction She is attracted to Jace the most accomplished of this group of hunters Much to the chagrin of her best friend Simon and Jaces hunter brother AlexShe learns years ago a charasamitic powerful and high ranking Shadow Hunter called Valentine created his own circle to cleanse the world of all demonic blood Weather they were good or bad theirxistence was Gods and Heroes enough of a crime He was ruthless to the point he was willing to sacrifice anyone and anything human or demon as calateral damage Now after 17 years Valentine has seemingly returned from the dead to finish what he started Clary must learn of the ways of the shadow hunters if she is help her friends stop ValentineGreat story good drama the characters are ok the only failing I found in the book were the fight scenes I think these are not the writer s strongest area yet All in all a great book not as action packed as Ixpected but the story makes up for this Clary just shut the hell up Warning won t contain spoilers cause I didn t get far Science, Technology and Culture enough to give a fuck and discover anything worth spoilingOkay so let me get this out straight I have never NOT finished a book before Okay I m lying The History of Sexuality Volume 1 by Michel Foucault remains unfinished as does Villette by Charlotte Bronte Why Because they were boringBecause as I read them I wanted to take a cheese grater to my skull and rub vigorously just to have something to doBut I have never NOT finished a Young Adult paranormal novel before And I ve read some BAAAAAD books But I didn t finish this book because it goes beyond bad It makes the History of Sexuality seem amazingly interesting and colourfulTo be fair to Ms Clare I was not actually reading her novel so much as listening to the Audiobook The Narrator Graynor did a particularly craptastic jobTo be fair to Ms Graynor she didn t have much to work with I tuned her out I swear I was focusing on the actual prose taking in the story trying to get interested But the writing was terrible It was painful The characters were annoyingNow I ve been fair to Ms Clare and I ve been fair to Mr Graynor So there s only you left to be fair to nowAnd in order to do that I have to admit that I wasn t EXPECTING to like this book I was howeverxpecting to be pleasantly surprised and I ll No Beast So Fierce explain whyMany years ago Cassandra Clare was Cassandra Clair a VERY popular FF author in the Harry Potter and LoTR circles I actually greatlynjoyed her Draco Trilogy I ve read it many times I had heard that this book was very similar to DT and so I was xpecting to find it to be a guilty pleasure Something my moral compass told me to leave behind but that I would actually njoy too much to do so But I was wrongYeah she plagiarized that work and I won t really go into it Last Chance Bride except to post a link because in thend I m not reviewing her I m reviewing her workBut here s the problem Jace is really just Draco from DT Simon is really just Ron and Harry amalgamated into one Clary is really just Ginny The bad guys seems too much like good ol Voldie The plot is painfully similar to DT It was like reading her old work all over again And I think because she was really just redressing her old characters she didn t Whos Cheatin Who? (Thoroughbred Legacy even both to give them any growth in this storyTo be honest I didn t read far because the writing was boring oh my lord the similes Someone save me from them and poorly constructed the characters were boring and poorly constructed and the plot was boring and poorly constructedI d already read DT so I didn t need to read this 15 year old Clary witnesses a crime at a trendy New York night club Interesting thing nobody but Clary can see both the victim and perpetrators As it turns out there is anntire invisible to regular people world and Clary is an unwitting important part of it City of Bones is one of those books that all my female friends and fellow readers simply love Jace mania all around Needless to say I had to jump on the bandwagon ventually and get me some Jace Who am I to deny myself a pleasure to fall for a fictional hot sarcastic and brooding guy Imagine my disappointment when I found out that this book was one big pile of hot mess Sorry ladies I said it it s badI had the hardest time sticking to the story and Emon Grabljivac napada i ranjava Kleri dok joj majku kidnapuju nepoznata bića Džejs vodi Kleri u svoj dom tzv „Institut” staru gotsku katedralu u Njujorku koja je nevidljiva za ljude Uz pomoć svog učitelja Hodža i monaha Džeremaje on pokušava da sazna zašto je Kleri meta demona i kako je moguće da ona vidi lovce na senkeGrad kostiju je prva knjiga trilogije Instrumenti smrti urbane horor fantaz.

Or uite some time I couldn t figure out why Then gradually I realized that there were several reasonsLet me start with the diting I don t really think this book was City Girl in Training edited at all actually Errors werendless and visible to Mystery at Kittiwake Bay even my untrainedye wrong words noise instead on nose missing words in sentences strange mix of POVs the book is mostly told in 3rd person from Clary s POV but occasionally I saw both 3rd and 1st person narration in the same paragraph describing the same Dangerous Waters (Cold Case Files events then there was a page from Jace s POV and a chapter from Luke s Clary s father was called Jonathan in the beginning of the book but John in thend I can go on but these were the things that I would normally overlook if the story itself was good Unfortunately it wasn t and the The Husband (Smytheshire, Massachusetts, errors stood outI didn t think that the story was cohesive it just didn t uite flow for me It read as of a series ofvents rather than a novel I thought there were some parts in the book that served no other purpose but to give our hero an opportunity to act knight like I am talking about the ntire rat Simonvampires xtravaganza This story line could have been An Italian Education edited out completely without any damage to the narrative IMO I couldn t uite relate to any of the charactersither What made my friends sigh with adoration annoyed me I hated the sarcasm mainly because the jokes although funny felt often out of place plus all of the characters attempting to joke sounded Protecting the Colton Bride Coltons Cowboy Code exactly the same to me I didn t feel the difference in attitudes of Clary Simon and Jace If Clare had to make Jace a witty sarcastic type she should have made the wisecracks hisxclusive trademark not Look-Alike Lawman (Texas Twins, everybody sThe story itself was so ridiculously predictable I do not normally see what is to come in the books but in COB I sawvery revelation coming Clare just doesn t have a skill to lead to them subtly it s always in your face Valentine is alive revelation who in this book who was thought to be dead was actually dead a serious uestion your mother put a spell on you revelation the big fatherbrother revelation I could see them all and I am not the most astute reader out thereNow my biggest problem with this book I ve readseen it all before Clare borrows so liberally from Star Wars Harry Potter and Buffy it is simply impossible to overlook Valentine VoldemortDarth Vader combo JaceClary LukeDracoLeiaGinny if it is possible combo the Circle reversed Order of the PhoenixDeath Eaters combo the Clave Ministry of Magic Luke LupinSnape combo Hodge GilesWormtail combo I can continue but will stop here you get the picture Granted there is nothing absolutely original in paranormal genre but a skillful writer can re work an old theme and make it new fresh and uniue Whatever is original in COB is not uite thought through As an Daddy Wanted example let s take a stele After finishing this book I still have no idea whatxactly it does do you only write runes with it how Forbidden Stranger exactly do you use it in a battle why it can open some doors and not others it can heal but notverything it can make you be able to see through a wooden screen but is it because you write a special rune with it or you use it as a wand It seems to me stele is pretty much used as a deus Snowy River Man ex machina convenient whenever a uick solution to a problem needed And what s with all the shadow folk There is just so much mashed up together fairies vampires werewolves pixies jinns You name any mythical creature it is in this book And what about magic I read about spells made by a warlock stele rune tricks curses where does itnd The limits of magic possibilities were never defined Bottom line all these inconsistencies make for one unoriginal and messy imaginary world And this probably was the main reason why I couldn t connect with this book Finally I was a little surprised by some of Clare s creative choices I found both flirtations of at least 35 year old warlock he might be older his age was never mentioned with a gay teenage boy and reversed LeiaLuke xtravaganza uite tacky if not disturbing Although I know how JaceClary family matter is resolved in the nd I don t find possibly incestuous relationships appealingThis review might make it seem like COB is the worst book Les brumes d'avalon : roman ever written I wouldn t say so after all I ve read Breaking Dawn and that book doesn t have any plot There were some nice JaceClary moments the greenhouse birthday party comes to mind But was COB the most blatantly unoriginal book I vever read Absolutely although I haven t read Eragon yet but I heard a lot about itIn all honesty I shouldn t give this book than 1 star but I will add a second one as a dedication to one Mrs Jace Wayland Would I recommend this book Sure many of my friends Malakai (Wicked Games, enjoyed it immensely Will I continue on with the series I don t think I will be able to convince myself to waste any of my time on being mad at a book I think I will just check out plot summaries on wiki and be done with the seriesPS I just read that Cassandara Clare is an avid and famous in certain circles fanfiction writer I guess that s where all the liberal borrowing comes from Mystery solve. Ije koja je postigla višemilionske tiraže i koja je prevedena na sve značajnije svetske jezikeGotski detalji i klasičnilementi tradicionalne horor fantastike sjajno se uklapaju sa modernom gradskom atmosferom Njujorka Egzotično i misteriozno podzemlje ovog grada nikada ne spava a kada se u njemu pored ljudskih bića nađu još i vukodlaci vampiri anđeli vile i lovci na demone nema vremena ni za pred.
