The Mortal Instruments 1: City of Bones Press Reviews

The perfect young adult novel. The tale of a shadowy underworld of elegant half-angel demons hunters in New York is thrilling. It's romantic. The pages fly by. The characters leap off the page and into your heart. I aspire to write like this. And I want to fight like a Shadow Hunter -- CJ Daugherty * The Big Issue * Mesmerising, lyrical tale of bright and dark sides of love and desire -- Fiona Noble * Bookseller Children's Guide * The book was easy to get into and thrilling the whole time. -- First News * First News * A thrilling urban fantasy of vampires, warlocks and shapeshifters that fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will love to get their teeth into [...] We haven't read such a brilliant mixture of razor-sharp wit and humour and spine tingling fear but above all a terrific page-turning read that will have you saying just one more page, then one more chapter and suddenly you've finished it, for quite a while. * Love Reading 4 Kids * Reissues with striking new cover art will bring these books to a new audience. * The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide *
