Book Review - The Mortal Instruments

If  you are anything like me and absolutely loved the Twilight and Hunger Games books and films, then I have a great recommendation of what to read next.  I recently started reading a series of books called The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare and I love the story and characters so much that I am just about to start reading book 3 (there are 5 books in the series).  Like Twilight & Hunger Games,  the first book has been made into a film which is due out on 21st August in the UK and is called City of Bones.
 

The story revolves around a couple of teenagers, Clary & Jace.  Clary is a mundane (human) or so she thinks, until a chance encounter with Jace (a shadowhunter).  She realises something is amiss when only she can see Jace.  It turns out that she is a shadowhunter as well, but her mother wanted to protect her and let her live a normal life, so Clary never knew her true destiny up until this point.
 
The books follow Clary and Jaces adventures as they battle werewolves, vampires and other supernatural creatures, but a startling revelation at the end of the first book threatens to tear them apart forever.
 
I really can't wait to start on the third book and I will be first in the queue when the film comes out at the cinema.  I really do think that it is a book series that is just as good as Twilight and The Hunger Games.
 
The 5 book set is currently available from www.thebookpeople.co.uk for a bargain £6.99 (search Cassandra Clare to find the set on the website).
 
Let me know if you can recommend any other book series that are worth reading.
