I was on my way to visit my parents & sister, in sunny Las Vegas, Saturday but I needed a fun read to get me there. Hey, it's a long flight! So I asked my teenage daughter, have you got anything good for me? She promptly pulled out "City of Bones" By Cassandra Clare. I absolutely inhaled it during the trip!
Not only was it inventive, but also had a clever use of character building/plot twist! Lucky for us it's the first in The Mortal Instruments series. I especially enjoyed the colorful description and Jace Wayland's vivid emotions coupled with his tormented soul. For all you proactive girls out there, the female characters are portrayed in a strong assertive manor so you'll enjoy them as well.
I'm happily on to book two "City of Ashes", can't wait to see what happens next!
