Finally, got to read this one. Now I liked it, although, it felt like many other young-adult-series novels, but it does have its own taste. I did like the main character, but at the same time she was so incredibly immature and stupid. Always in denial; I mean, I get it, all your life you’ve been a normal teenager then everything you know is a giant lie, everybody’s lying to you but man, you you be more annoying! And another thing, the similes in this book were just awful. I don’t why, they were repetitive, many times that I read them I felt déjà vu, like other authors had used and many of them were so stupid and basic. You know how there are similes that when you read them are simply amazing, beautifully written and they give you this wonderful image of what the author is comparing; these are the exact opposite. But I will continue to read the series because I wish to know what happens next!
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours, Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a true vengeance.
