Friday Series Love(2) - The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

Friday Series Love is my feature where you can find out what series are hot....unbeatable.....fantastic....can't stop reading reads.....

This week I'm going to share my love for The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, If your love all things paranormal but what something different then these are the books to pick. I loved The Mortal Instruments, from the moment I picked up the first book I was hooked. There was something about the danger, action and love that kept me interested and there wasn't a point I didn't want to read more.

What's it all about?

They call themselves Shadowhunters.

The Shadowhunters obey the laws set down in the Gray Book, given to them by the angel: their mandate is to protect our world from the interdimensional parasites they call demons, who travel from world to world, razing and destroying everything in their path. Theirs is also the task of keeping the peace among the warring Downworlders: the human-demon crossbreeds we know as warlocks, vampires, werewolves, and faeries.

In their duties they are aided by the mysterious Silent Brothers. Their lips and eyes sewn shut, the Silent Brothers rule over the City of Bones, the necropolis below the streets of Manhattan that holds the dead bodies of slain Shadowhunters. The Silent Brothers keep the archival records of ever Shadowhunter ever born. They also watch over the Mortal Instruments, the three divine objects the Angel Raziel gave to his children. One is a sword. One is a mirror. And the last is a cup.

For a thousand years, the Nephilim have protected the Mortal Instruments. But that was before the Uprising, the civil war that almost tore the Shadowhunters' secret world apart. Though Valentine, the Shadowhunter who started the war, is long dead, the wounds it left behind have never healed.

Fifteen years have passed since the Uprising. It's August in New York; the streets blistering with heat. Rumors run rampant through Downworld that Valentine is back, at the head of an army of Forsaken warriors.
And the Mortal Cup has gone missing...

Happy Friday xxx


  1. Still haven't read the series, but they're waiting for me on my shelf ;)

  2. Cool feature! I haven't read these yet either but they sound interesting.

  3. Kudos for this! love that show show your love for this amazing series, can you believe there was a point where enough people didn't know about it, i was always trying to spread the word and say its fantastic read it! and now its come to the point where everyone has come and fallen in love with it, how awesome huh, i fell in love with the series the moment i layed eyes on it, i think its always going to be kind of special for me, thanks for the fab post girl! :)

  4. I LOVE THIS SERIES! I'm so jealous of everyone who hasn't read it yet, because they get to experience it for the first time.

  5. Why haven't I read these books yet? I just got them in the mail. Can't wait to start!

  6. I have yet to read this. Well, I read the first one and I wasn't too impressed but I will try it again.

    As for books, I have a ton of suggestions..
    The Chronicles of Elantra - Michelle Sagara West. I really like this series.
    Soulless (and other books) - Gail Carriger. She rewrites the vampire/werewolf story in an entirely new way. It's loads of fun.
    Strange Angels - Lilith Saintcrow (This is YA and it's serious business. Her books are always well written and have an edge on action and drama that eludes other authors in the same genre.)
    The Poison Throne - Celine Kiernan (YA trilogy. Historical fiction and absolutely wonderful.)
    Once a Witch - Carolyn MacCullough (I hope this is a series. It's that good.)

    I think I'll stop here. I get carried away. Hehe.

  7. I really do LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Mortal Instruments series. Glad to see you do too!

    Have a great weekend, Bonnie

  8. I have fallen in love with this series.I was stunned when Clary and Jace found out they were brother and sister,but I still am hoping for the best for them.


Hey guys...feel free to leave a little love
