i just finished all 1st MORTAL INSTRUMENT + INFERNAL DEVICES - Clockwork Angel
, and have to say : AWESOME SERIES!
Thriller, action, horror, fantasy, humor, and romantic, all in one and blended in a smart way and nicely done. 4 thumbs up for cassie clare, since mortal instrument is her first series ever and reach best seller all the volumes =D( for those who haven't read yet, some mussy summary and a bit spoilers =pCollapse )
The plus points of TMI is, the character.
The protagonist aren't that 'perfect', even the Nephilim which is half angel, they act more human. Also Clary is a strong and smart girl. She's a girl
, small, weak
, in outer performance, but carry a big power.
and for boys, i still can't choose between Simon or Jace. They are too lovable, seriously. Simon maybe more heartwarming and understanding (he is a nerd, anime otaku, glasses boy, and COOLER after he becomes a vampire, oops, spoilers xD) but Jace is an attractive bad boy type <3333 jerk, stingy, cynical jokes, daring, but cute in his own way and loves Clary so much. and Clary is also strong and smart heroine type, not a love-blind (well maybe she 'used' Simon to forget Jace, but yeah, it does not a bother, if you compare with Edward-Bella-Jacob (does not mean to comparing, i love twilight too, and team Jacob =D)
what makes it different is also Clare put male x male relationship, Magnus and Alec, and that's surprisingly cute xD (not because i start to concern on yaoi genre this lately...well, okay i confess,maybe that's one of many factors /perv/). Alec is naturally gay, but Clare explained Magnus as Bi and adore certain beauties (Magnus dated woman many times, such as Camille), so it's find for him, male or female as long as they have beauties Magnus liked =) *cheering for this couple*
Very excited to the movie. i hope it will be a box office, cause this series worth it ;D
