What the Critics Say

"The Mortal Instruments series is a story world I love to live in. Beautiful." (Stephanie Meyer)
"The story's sensual flavor comes from the wealth of detail: demons with facial piercings, diners serving locusts and honey, pretty gay warlocks, and cameo appearances from other urban fantasies' characters....Lush and fun." (Kirkus Review)

typical fantasy

A little predictable - some recogniseable themes...... Didn't like narrator's voice at all, and in some places I couldn't tell which character she was trying to be, but did get used to it after a few hours.

I'm a "mature" listener, but can't resist fantasy (loved the Twighlight series and A Discovery of Witches). Have just found I had to download book 2 in the series, despite myself.....so that must say something. It's hardly breaking new ground, or particularly well written (lots of cliches used), however it's typical escapist fantasy, and will help to pass a few hours on the train (or ironing!) pleasantly.

City of Bones

A really easy listen and very enjoyable. Aimed at young adults (not too young as some of the issues might take some explaining)but no less thrilling for it. I'm off to download book two right now!
