Editor’s Note: Check out this classic blog post from Lauren back when she was our Teen Librarian!
Finally! I’ve been meaning to start Cassandra Clare’s urban-paranormal series The Mortal Instruments, for ever! This weekend I took home the first in the series, City of Bone, and it was fantastic! Don’t be put off by the fairly large size of the book; I breezed through it and enjoyed this inventive story about 15-year old Clary Fray and how she learns of her involvement in the world of Shadowhunters.
Set in New York City, this book is for teens who want to become engrossed in another “big” series. A New York Times Bestselling series, it is also being made into a movie!
Highly recommended for late middle school-high school.
