"City of Bones" (The Mortal Insturments) by Cassadra Clare

I had heard that there was a movie coming out on The Mortal Instruments series. I do love movies, but I really enjoy reading the book(s) before I go to see the movie.

Honestly, I thought I would get bored reading these books because they are young adult/teen books. However, I was greatly surprised! The storyline was excellent & the characters well described. I found myself routing for the heroes, feeling sad for the victims, and hoping they capture or kill the villain. The love interest in the series has its share of angst. There is always one or both who are in love, who fumble over themselves, can't decide what to do with their feelings, are scared, but then take the leap of faith, hoping that the other feels the same.

The main characters are Nephilim. Not the Nephilim you're used to hearing about. Nephilim are humans chosen by an Angel to become warriors, protecting this world from demons and downworlders. (Downworlders are creatures like vampires, werewolves, or fae.) However, downworlders don't seem to be an enemy any longer. The focus now, more than anything, is on killing demons and hunting down the Nephilim who has released them. Now the Nephilim & downworlders have a common interest & join forces to battle their mutual enemy.

If you're looking for a series that read fast, has great characters, and has a wonderful mixture of real world & a bit of fantasy, you'll really love this series!

Get a copy of Cassandra Clare's: The Mortal Instruments Series (5 books).
