These books have already been reviewed numerous times so I won't go into detail about what the storyline is. But I loved them. They were so fun to read. However, what's up with all the sci-fi/fantasy craze right now? Dunno. But what I do know is I'm a part of it and love it. :) I've always been called a little nerdy because of the shows I love (Lord of the Rings, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Legend, etc.) - therefore this sci-fi craze is fitting in my life.
The only thing that was frustrating with these books was when we were told Clary and Jace, who were very hot for each other (can I say that?), were seemingly brother and sister. I was so angry! Let's just pull a Prison Break and kill the lead female role who gorgeous Scoville loves! What the?! All of book two was them trying to abstain from wanting each other and trying to call each other brother and sister. It was all very weird and bizarre. Good thing that didn't last for too much longer. :)
Oh, and one more thing that was weird for me was reading the small love story between Alec and Magnus (two men). I could have done without that. But the author isn't LDS, so what did I expect? However I'm glad it didn't go into any kind of detail. Just mainly hints and one kiss at the end.
Can't wait for book four next year!
4 out of 5 stars
