    Mortal Instruments

    Has anyone read this awesome series? If you have what do you think about it? If you haven't you must check it out
    especially if you love vampires/werewolves/witches etc. I just finished reading City of Lost Souls (book 5) and it was
    really good!!

    I read some comments that said Cassandra Clare the author stole ideas from Harry Potter for this series. I don't see it
    but what do you think?

    Also, the movie will be released some time next year. Looking forward to that.

    Re: Mortal Instruments

    I have. One of my favorite series but I haven't read book 5 yet. Stole ideas from harry potter ? I never noticed. Romance is just a sub plot in hp but in Mortal Instruments it plays a major role. Anyway check out Infernal Devices too.
    P.S : Night Angel trilogy, it's not the same author but I love the books.

    Re: Mortal Instruments

    I love this series, I'm currently reading the 4th book. I identify with the characters more than in most other fantasy novels, maybe because of the modern setting. I'm sure Cassandra Clare was influenced by Harry Potter, but I don't feel she stole ideas.

    Re: Mortal Instruments

    @ raziel777 The Night Angel trilogy was so awesome!! Brent Weeks is a legend for writing that. Can you imagine a movie??
    But knowing Hollywood they would probably ruin the trilogy (like they ruined Twilight)

    Apparently the mortal instruments are actually the deathly hallows and Valentine should be called by his real name Voldemort.
    Also the character of Clary is like Ginny Weasley. I just don't see it!!

    Re: Mortal Instruments

    @shanay.
    I didnt see that coming. I really fail to see what Voldemort and Valentine have in common. Maybe the nazi-like attitude ? Ginny and Clary are world apart, completely different personalities. Maybe Cassandra Clare was influenced by hp but she certainly did not copy rowling. Nowadays, every good fantasy books are labelled hp-copy...
    - The Night Angel trilogy is my favorite series. And yeah, I'm pretty sure Hollywood can manage to ruin even that... I think an animated version would rock hard

    Re: Mortal Instruments

    Oh, I loveee the Mortal Instruments series. I still have to read books four and five, though.
    Has anyone here read the Infernal Devices series at all? [Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince...] They're in the same sort of world, just different time periods.

    Re: Mortal Instruments

    @ raziel777 wow an animated series? Never thought about that! Would be awesome.
    The mortal instruments movie better be awesome cause this series deserves that. The director is the same guy who did
    the new Karate Kid movie. They have Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror, The Blind Side) playing Clary and Jamie Campbell Bower
    (Twilight, Sweeney Todd) playing Jace.

    @YoltsJo I haven't read it yet but I am definitely going to! You should read books 4 and 5 but take your time.
    Book 6 is only being released in 2014!!

    You're reading the series out of order?

    I like it overall I got the books from a friend of mines D
    I'm a little sad i comes out in fall 2014
    The book itself is terrific and deserves a 10/10 fan review & 7.8/10 - critic review

    Just finished reading Clockwork Angel.
    It was amazing!! I loved the setting and how different it was to the Mortal Instruments.
    Also, if you didn't read the Mortal Instruments, it doesn't even matter.
    You guys have to check it out :D
