The Mortal Instruments Series

by
  • (7 reviews)

    The Mortal Instruments books are a favourite amongst young adult readers, for their compelling and mysterious plots, dynamic characters and passionate love story. 

    Casandra Clare’s Young Adult fantasy series tells the story of Clary Fray. Searching for her missing mother, Clary is pulled into an alternate New York – Downworld is filled with mysterious faeries, partying warlocks, vampires who aren’t want they seem, an army of werewolves and the demons who want to destroy it all.

    In book one City of Bones, Clary meets Jace and discovers that, like him, she is a Shadowhunter, a human-angel hybrid who hunts down demons. This startling discovery triggers a series of action-filled adventures and romance.

    Cassandra Clare’s books have been adapted for screen several times: in 2013 into the film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and, more recently, into an American TV series on Netflix starring Katherine McNamara as Clary.

    The Mortal Instruments is the first series in the Shadowhunters Chronicles. We recommend reading the Shadowhunters books chronologically, starting with book one City of Bones.
