Review From User :

"One must always be careful of books," said Tessa, "and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us."

I never thought this could be that good.I had started "City of Bones" (the first book of The Mortal Instruments by the same author) but it didn't work for me so I thought this could be the same but I was totally wrong.This was an art,a fine peace of art.I read it in one day.Literally couldn't put the book down for a second.Everything is perfect and matches , and I really dig the lifestyle of the time before two hundred years,the classy outfits and the funny teasing.

"Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry."

The plot is beyond goodness,and it has every paranormal creature.The book is written in third person and who knows me knows that I don't like books in third person but in this one I didn't mind at all.It was perfectly build and the story fits well with characters,their personality with their actions,the style of talking with the time book is written in.Everything is in the right place.

"Remember when you tried to convince me to feed a poultry pie to the mallards in the park to see if you could breed a race of cannibal ducks"

"They ate it too," Will reminisced. "Bloodthirsty little beasts. Never trust a duck."

I also liked the romance in this book,because the book needed it and I'm so glad that the author didn't make it a big deal,like the reason of things happening because I'm tired with books where only true love and stuff like this triumph.The bonding between characters was so natural and seemed quite real.And so you know there is a love triangle.

"Will looked horrified. "What kind of monster could possibly hate chocolate"

The only thing that I didn't like much was the vampires.This is my personal opinion and there is not a single problem in this book with vampires,they are well described and everything ,but I don't like these creatures so much.And I would liked more if vampires were replaced with any other creature.Beside that everything is perfect.

"It's all right to love someone who doesn't love you back, as long as they're worth you loving them. As long as they deserve it."

I usually talk in my reviews which part of the book was good,better and bad.But I can't part this one.From the first page till the last one,moments never got boring and there were always thrilling and exciting ones.

"There's plenty of sense in nonsense sometimes, if you wish to look for it."

The ending was phenomenal.And there was also a cliff in the epilogue.So I can't wait to read the next book.

"If no one in the entire world cared about you, did you really exist at all"

The story:

This book is about a girl who travels to London to meet her brother,but when she arrived there someone else takes her and keeps her as prisoner.There she discovers her special abilities and grows a lot of questions about herself.One day she is saved from the Dark house from a boy named Will and he sent her to the institute.There she finds more about the Downworld,shadowhunters,and other mysterious paranormal things.Also she is caught up in a love triangle between two bestfriends.

The characters:


I rarely build feeling for characters,any feelings,but this time Tessa got me hard.I really dig her.She is so fine,smart and beautiful and the way she does things it's just admirable.


I liked this character for his sense of humor.And I must say he has a dark past and doesn't want to involve anyone in it,even the people he really cares about.


Jem is one of those characters you feel sorry about.I mean he at least deserved his addiction.Otherwise he is a person you should look after.Quite a role model.

"Sometimes, when I have to do something I don't want to do, I pretend I'm a character from a book. It's easier to know what they would do."

I highly recommend this book to everyone.Even if you loved or hated The mortal instruments you should read this one.It's awesome.And I really want to see this on screen.
