“The boy never cried again, and he never forgot what he'd learned: that to love is to destroy, and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed.”

City of Bones  - Cassandra Clare

I really wish I had read this earlier. I loved it. The characters are likable and fun. They really has me invested in their lives. I also liked the twists to the story, while I expected some, a few caught me by complete surprise! The world was the most intriguing part for me. I could get lost among all the shadowhunters and downworlders. I'm glad I have City of Ashes on hand because I don't think I could have waited for the next one to be released! Great start to a promising series!
