City of Bones: Mortal Instruments, Book 1

City of Bones - Cassandra Clare After finally getting round to reading this one right the way through turns out I'm in the I loved it camp. One of the most entertaining YA novels I've read I years. The world building is fantastic and I actually like all the characters expect Jace wonks a total ass. The writing is by no means lyrical, brilliant or epic, but its fast paced and a lots of fun. And while there are too many things borrowed from Harry Potter and Star Wars to list, and at least one thing straight out of the Fellowship Of The Ring, didn't actually bother me at all. Yes there was a certain amount if eye rolling, and a lot of oh come on now, really?! giggles, I still loved it, and look forward to the rest of the series.
