Book Review: “City of Bones”

originally posted to Goodreads.com. Presented (mostly) unchanged

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, Book 1) by Cassandra Clare (2008, Margaret K. McElderry Books)

I liked it. Sure it’s not the most inspired YA fare but it was entertaining. But, with one exception the plot twists are so obvious you have to wonder if the characters have mild mental disorders. But there’s one that is so left field and pointless and upsetting that I can’t figure out why she even did it. And it continues, in an intensified creepy way, into book 2.
