Series Spotlight: The Mortal Instruments

The Mortal Instruments 
Cassandra Clare

City of Bones          , City of Ashes,            City of Glass
City of Fallen Angels,  City of Lost Souls,  City of Heavenly Fire

(Summary from

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder -- much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing -- not even a smear of blood -- to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . . 

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end. 

I  loved this series!

The sixth and final book, City of Heavenly Fire, comes out in 2014. (Which is way too long to wait if you ask me.) That is why there is a filler in the place of the sixth book on the image.

I only included the summary for the first book because the summaries for the other books contain spoilers.~
