The wait is over.
The epic conclusion to the #1 Bestselling Mortal Instruments series releases today.
ΕRCHOMAI, SEBASTIAN HAD SAID.
I am coming.
Darkness returns to the Shadowhunter world. As their society falls apart around them, Clary, Jace, Simon and their friends must band together to fight the greatest evil the Nephilim have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Nothing in the world can defeat him — must they journey to another world to find the chance? Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world changed in the sixth and last installment of the Mortal Instruments series!
Have you ever read a book and you knew immediately it had to be a movie, too? I felt that way with The Hunger Games and I felt again with Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series.
These books have everything you could possibly want in a fantastic YA urban fantasy novel: vampires, werewolves, fairies, supernatural creatures, hot guys, sweet guys, kick-butt heroines. And Cassandra Clare has a way to deliver all of it in a way that prohibits the reader from putting the books down for a moment. I have to say she is one of my favorite authors and I have spent lots of time evaluating her writing style so I can learn what makes it work so darn well.
I got all giddy when I found out the first book in the series, City of Bones, would be made into a film. Like many others, I waited patiently to hear who would star, and I was surprised to find a fairly unheard of cast (Lena Headey from The Brothers Grimm; Lily Collins (daughter of Phil Collins); Robert Sheehan; and Jamie Campbell Bower (not how I pictured Jace at all!)). I began to have my doubts about the casting until I saw they signed on Jonathan Rhys Meyers to play Valentine. I was sold.
The film is set to release August 23, 2013 in the US. I hope it’s as good as the book. I really don’t want to be disappointed with this one.
