...The One and Only...

Books by Cassandra Clare

This author has so many books that I felt like she needed her own page.

Enjoy.

THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS

Deleted Prologue to City of Bones

Book 0.5

To be read

City of Bones

Book 1

5 Stars - 4 Days to read


These first three books are from one series. They have action, love, friendship and death. It is a definite recommendation. I promise you will love them all!

Deleted Prologue

Book 1.1

3 Stars - 3 Days to read


Meh. I am glad they deleted this prologue. I liked the way City of Bones began. The club scene where you are not too sure what is going on because it is a new book and all. The story did well without theat part. It wasn't long or anything. It really wasn't anything special either. That's all I have to say about it. Read it or not. Either way, for the link, CLICK HERE.

Magnus' Vow

Book 1.2

HAVE NOT READ....


"All copies of the Clockwork Angel paperback are going to come with a short story in the back called "Magnus' Vow." It takes place during City of Bones and is from Magnus' viewpoint." - Cassandra Clare

The Greenhouse Jace POV 

Book 1.3

4 Stars - 2 Minutes to read


This scene was removed from Cassandra Claire's website and I had to do some snooping to find it. I found a snippit of it but what I did read was pretty good. This scene is when Jace and Clary are together in the Green House. Jace has a special birthday surprise for Clary. Cassandra has her way with words that make them come alive. I loved it! Reading Clary and Jace kiss is my favourite. Oops, did I just say that? CLICK HERE to read the snippit.

City of Ashes

Book 2

5 Stars - 3 Days to read


No review

Kissed

Book 2.1

5 Stars - 5 Minutes to read


Oh my, oh my, oh my!! This is another short. Alec goes to Magnus Bane's place to thank him for saving his life. Alec asks out Magnus for the first time, but that is not the only first that happens in this scene. Alec admits to never being kissed and Magnus shows him what it feels like to be kissed for the first time. Once again, Cassandra did not disappoint. I am not into the whole guy on guy scene, but this short was written very well and I wasn't grossed out at all. It was very interesting! I loved the ending. I found myself smiling. CLICK HERE to find out why.


Because it is Bitter

Book 2.2

5 Stars - 4 Minutes to read


I was looking for this all over, but I found it. CLICK HERE to read it. Ok Review time. This was such a great little addition. A scene in the book but from Jace's prospective. It takes place from paged 170-174. The Seelie Queen makes Jace and Clary kiss. I loved it. I love how Jace loves Clary but doesn't tell her. I love his jealousy towards Simon. It was great. Everything Cassandra writes is magic. Read it. It will only take five of your minutes. It will not disappoint.

Chapter 14: Fearless

Book 2.3

4 Stars - 4 Minutes to read


This part was sweet. "He's not my friend. He's my brother." Isabelle says to the Inquisitor. I hated that woman in this story, but eventually felt bad for her near the end. You would know if you read it. I think they should have kept this part in. It showed the bond between Isabelle and Jace. Isabelle lied to protect Jace but when Isabelle was about to get stripped of her marks, Jace speaks up because he could not bear to see his 'sister' hurt.CLICK HERE to read.


City of Glass

Book 3

5 Stars - 2 Days to read


I wasn't as satisfied with this ending, but there will be another book following soon. I will wait patiently for it :)

A Sudden Departure

Book 3.1

3 Stars - 5 Minutes to read


So the deleted first chapter, eh? Now I know why they deleted it. A lot happened and nothing happened at the same time. It was a bunch of randomness compiled together. It also didn't have that spark that Cassandra's normal chapters have. I don't remember how the regular chapter went, but I am sure it was much better than this one. CLICK HERE to read it and see if you agree with me.

The Demon Towers of Alicante

Book 3.2

4 Stars - 4 Minutes to read


Just as I expected. Wonderful. I love how Cassandra sticks to her characters profiles so easily. The introduction of the new characters doesn't mean that the other characters get forgotten. She can write a chapter with as many characters as she wants and you will not get confused. I love Jace's humour as well as the loyalty that Simon will always have for Clary. So touching. CLICK HERE to read what happens when Simon meets two new Shadowhunters.


Chapter 6: Bad Blood

Book 3.3

4 Stars - 3 Minutes to read


A very short scene where Jace kisses Alec to make him feel better about Magnus. I found it very sweet that Jace would do that just to help his 'brother' out. Yay Jace!CLICK HERE to read it.

Chapter 7: Where Angels Fear to Tread

Book 3.4

4 Stars - 5 Minutes to read


This scene shows Sebastian and Clary going to Magnus Bane's house. Clary has slight feelings for Sebastian but tries to hide them by telling herself that there is nothing between them. She is shy with the slightest touch and holding his hand as they walked into the darkened house didn't make the situation any better. Sebastian thinks that Magnus is Ragnor Fell and right when Clary was about to say that he is not Ragnor - but Magnus - something happens, which I found quite interesting. Read to find out what Magnus did to prevent Sebastian from hearing the truth come out of Clary's mouth. CLICK HERE to read.

 

Chapter 9: This Guilty Blood

Book 3.5

3 Stars - 4 Minutes to read


I read this scene in Jace's POV (below) and I liked it much better! This scene should stay in Jace's POV. As much as Clary wanted Jace, it appeared that he wanted her more. He literally burned with desire over her. He adored her and knew he could never have her. Clary's version of this is kind of boring. Yeah, they kissed, yeah, she took off her shirt for him, but it wasn't as intense from her eyes. I shall re read this scene from Jace's POV. Excuse me. haha. CLICK HERE to see what Clary had to say about this scene.


Manor House in Jace's POV

Book 3.6

5 Stars - 4 Minutes to read


Hot, Hot, Hot! The scene where Jace and Clary jump out of the window. Jace lands on top of Clary and things start to get hot and heavy after that. It was so good. Jace kissed Clary. He showed her how he would kiss her if she wasn't his sister basically. Which was kind of gross because I think in this part of the book they believe they ARE in fact brother and sister. I don't remember. Either way, it was a hot scene. Too bad the ring had to spoil it. CLICK HERE to read : )

Jace's Letter to Clary

Book 3.7

5 Stars - 3 Minutes to read


I got a copy of this in the fourth installment "City of Glass." It is a short letter but very sweet. I am glad that Cassandra decided to add this in. I love hearing from Jace's POV. This letter is not anything special but it made me happy. CLICK HERE to read, if you haven't already.

Jocelyn's Story

Book 3.8

5 Stars - 10 Minutes to read


Wow, this seems like a letter written to Clary after Jocelyn wakes up from her slumber she induced herself. This letter literally depicts everything that happened in her life – Meeting Valentine, falling in love, getting married and then having his first child.


I couldn’t believe the events that Jocelyn had been through. Valentine, the monster he is, giving her demon blood to drink to make her baby stronger. It was sickening. I couldn’t believe someone would do that. Jocelyn didn’t even love her own baby because of it.


You should read this story to get a better understanding of what Jocelyn had gone through. It will not disappoint. I promise. CLICK HERE to read it.


Chapter 20: Weighed In The Balance

Book 3.9

3 Stars - 2 Minutes to read


Just a little closure. That's all. Nothing really happened in this scene. Luke regards a fallen friend - Valentine. That's all. CLICK HERE to read.

A Dark Transformation

Book 3.10

HAVE NOT READ


WALMART will be carrying its own special edition. It will contain the short story “A Dark Transformation” about how Jonathan Morgenstern took over the identity of Sebastian Verlac.

City of Fallen Angels

Book 4

4 Stars - 4 Days to read


It was pretty good despite the fact I was kind of confused at some parts. I kind of forgot what happened in City of Glass and they weren't really clear on what happened in previous books. I read the other books over two years ago. I wouldn't have minded a little recap. I didn't understand where the letter fits into the story. I wish they explained how all of a sudden Clary and Jace were fighting when the night before they were fine. Everything seemed rushed. This sounds like a bad review, but it's not! I loved the alley scene ;) The book was so funny. Humour is amazing. Ending was a cliffy! Gr! Can't wait to buy the next book!
