The Mortal Instruments
City of Glass
By Cassandra Clare

Margaret K McElderry Books NY

City of glass mixes a fantasy world with the hustle and bustle of New York City. The main character, 15 year old Clary (a petite red head) lives with her mother in a little NY apartment. She spends her time hanging out with her best friend Simon, (who is actually in love with her) clubbing and drawing. Something strange happens when she realizes there's something different about her... she see's people at a club that Simon can't. Unknowingly being the daughter of a shadow hunter and the worst villain in their world can make life pretty crazy!
Personal Review:
This was a fun book to read.. not so sure i'd bother reading the rest in the series. It just felt too much like it was trying to be every other book. Most if it was predictable and the way the author puts you in the 'other world' wasn't that believable. It didn't make me want to be a part of 'their' world. The flying motorcycles and then vampires and dad's that are trying to kill you and magic.. it all just seemed a little harry potter tryign to be Bella who's Dad is Darth Vadar. Meh, pass.
WARNINGS: Languge, violence
