I hate to admit it.. but I really ended up liking this series a lot. It definitely engaged me and made me invested in the characters storylines.  I even read the prequel series.

This is a great gift to give to book lovers. This is by far one of my favorite series. Everyone i have spoken to has loved this series. You can get them at any retail store.

I absolutely loved the whole series and as soon as I finished one book, I went and got the next. The ending to the series is so good and everything is wrapped up nicely. The only movie out based on the book is pretty good; however, the tv series is trash and I can't stand to watch it. Also there are spin offs of the series that I have read that add so much more depth to the world of Shadowhunters, like the Bane chronicles and the shadowhunter's codex.

This was such a long but wonderful series I just finished the last book in it last night and although apart of me is sad about it ending, I felt like I was ready to let go and move on to a new series just because of how long the books are and how many books there are. I do like that for people who are obsessed with this series the author has many series revolving in this dark shadow filled world, it's a great book for YA fans and do recommend this to a be a book to add to your library. Over all great book wish the tv series could have met my expectation but sadly did not.

This has to be my favorite books series that I have ever read. I was so hooked on these and the day they came out I purchased them!! The author did such a great job. I can't wait to watch all the tv shows coming out and the movies. I'm sure I'll be a little disappointed because nothing can ever compare to the details that you gain from a book. Go out and read these!!

This is one of my favorite book series of all time. It's such a shame that the movie and the tv show don't do it justice. These books are so near and dear to my heart and I've loved them for so many years. I would highly recommend reading this series or any Cassandra Clare book for that matter. She is a brilliant writer.

I loved the Mortal Instruments Series!  This book was well written by Cassandra Clare.  I love the strong female character that is featured throughout the series.  There is some romance, some action.  It's attention grabbing right from the very beginning.  I am currently reading the clockwork series by the author that is proving just as entertaining.  I highly recommend!

This is my absolute favorite book series I could read it again over and over. Clary and Jace's romance is absolutely perfect. I love that Clary started out like a damsel in distress not knowing she was a shadow hunter not continuing on she gets stronger and can hold her own.

I love this series so much. I have reread twice. I have read almost every series she has written. The storyline is so good. My favorite character is jace he is so complex yet relatable. I personally think it's a must read for young adults and adults.

Is this another one of those hunger games/divergent type series? I really liked both of those, and I loved the Harry Potter series. Should this one be next on my list?
