I am way behind on this one guys. I know. But I finally read it, so give me a little credit. While I was intrigued from the beginning, City of Bones took a little bit of time to really suck me in. But by the end, I was flying through the pages desperate to know what happened.
Not much to say, since you all have read this already. The world is complex, the characters have depth, and the plot never stalls. I liked Clary and Simon (poor Simon), but Jace is such an interesting character. I read somewhere that this started as Harry Potter fanfiction and Jace is based on Draco Malfoy. I can totally see that.
I am on to Book 2 soon. I swear.
