Clary and her best friend Simon were having a normal night. That is, until Clary saw someone get murdered. Now she is swept up into the world of Shadowhunters and demons. To make matters worse, her mother has been kidnapped by demons.
Just a reminder, this is my opinion and I hope people respect it. That being said, I think this book was incredibly overhyped. Is it a good story? Definitely. Is it one of the best books I’ve read? Not even close. I didn’t feel an intense draw to it which, for me, makes a book special.
I did think the characters were interesting, I particularly liked Simon. There was definitely a plot twist I didn’t see coming which was cool and a little weird. I just couldn’t get really into it. I’m hoping I like the second one better. I just think there was so much hype around this series for so long I just expected more.
