The Mortal Instruments – City of Bones

So, I’ve just finished City of Bones the first book in The Mortal Instruments series and have to say, I quite enjoyed it. The plot is admittedly a little clunky at times, as though the author felt that dropping the hint once wouldn’t be quite obvious and though fans of the series will hate me saying this, some scenes were a little derivative of other YA or fantasy books/television (Harry Potter, Star Wars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer to name but a few), but that didn’t stop it being enjoyable. I will probably read the other books in the series, if only to see how the incest angle plays out.

Having said that, I doubt I’ll bother with the films until they are out on TV. Despite having a pretty good cast – Aiden Turner switching from vamp to werewolf and Robert Sheehan taking a turn as another smart mouthed teen caught up in a supernatural drama- the trailers seemed a little camp I’m not feeling a burning desire to see this.
