Next, let’s address the stories. I had never read Clare, although my older son read City of Bones when he was in high school and he liked it. I chose to read this series because it was on a list of books that are recommended for young adults.
I like YA fiction and read it often. One of the reasons I like it is because it’s family friendly while still being engaging and I don’t always want to read something gruesome or sexy. That being said, these books fail on both accounts. For “young adult” they are pretty adult. The violence and gore is pronounced, and interspersed are soft core heavy petting sessions that are quite detailed. (I’m only halfway through the second book so I don’t know how far things go). The plot is decent and the writing is fine, but I’m not super thrilled with the R rating. I was hoping for a book more like the official synopsis.
Bottom line: note the poor quality before you buy and parents be informed before you give as a gift.
Fans of Brandon Mull’s Beyonders will probably like these and I’m sure fans of romance books will like them, too.
This is my second favorite of Cassandra Clare series my first fav is The Dark Artifices. The internal devices is really fun to read. I love Cassandra Clare because of her world creation and the message of tolerance that is so prevalent in her books. Her writing complexity is low, but her world creation makes up for the lack of vocabulary any day. I recommend reading all the series in Publishing order first to avoid Spoilers and it will help you with immersion into the world. The second time reading through you can read in Chronological order. Also the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy and the Bane Chronicles are must reads.
The three series Cassandra Clare has written in Chronological order below
-- The Infernal Devices
-- The Immortal Instruments
-- The Dark Artifices ( still being written now. )
I read this series before the Mortal Instruments, which are set it the same world but present day, and I have to say I like this set more (although both are on my favorites list!). The Infernal Devices lean more towards the romance and character development, whereas the Mortal Instruments have more demon killing and 'good vs. evil' (don't get me wrong, all of those themes are present in both series, but the feel is slightly different).
I've never felt so deeply for characters in a book, they are without a doubt the most unforgettable characters I've ever "gotten to know". Reading the Mortal Instruments afterwards I felt almost a lingering sadness, having left these characters behind and moved on to new ones. I loved the Mortal Instruments as well, but I don't feel like I would have fully experienced them without reading these, as the Mortal Instruments didn't delve as deep into some of the important aspects of the shadow world (like the parabatai connection between shadowhunters). Both series definitely need to be read (in any order)!
I'm reading them again, and know I will again and again! It's a world I can't let go of. And the books are gorgeous, the cover art is beautiful and has a glossy, almost "shiny" feel to it. I highly recommend all of Cassandra Clare's work, but the Infernal Devices are by far my favorite!
