Crazy, adventurous and subtly romantic, the first Mortal Instruments book City of Bones delivers more than expected. Traveling into a world parallel to our own and discovering dangerous creatures and secrets, brewing wars and seeing a girl find her way in this different and mysterious world. A book to be recommended to everyone I meet.
