    I doubt that anyone on GoodReads actually cares about my opinion but the Internet allows me to write something anyway. I don't know if I want to read this book. In some ways it would be cool, but under the same ideology (right word?) as the movie, I don't want to have my "image" of Clary and Jace (and all the others) ruined. I want to see them how I see them. Yet I cannot help but be curious about how this will turn out. I mean, it might even be (God forbid I say this) good.

    Two things to say: 1. What is with this trend of making graphic novels out of books that just really need to be left alone to fester. (Not saying that about TMI. /COUGH/hushhushtwilight/COUGH/ 2. Who the hell are those people on the cover, because they certainly aren't my Clary and Jace. Honestly, they look like Steve Irwin and whatever the heck his wife is named.

Entiendo perfectamente que esto sea un negocio. No todos los autores escriben libros por amor al arte y a la literatura. Hemos visto muchas veces cómo algunos autores decidieron continuar sagas y trilogías que se daban por acabadas para hacer más dinero. Creo que el autor debe ser fiel a sí mismo y a sus escritos y decir basta. Cassie Clare seguro continuará dándole largas a la misma historia. Pero lo que me molesta es que se hagan cosas como esta estúpida novela gráfica que grita que fue hecha sólo para ganar más dinero. Ni siquiera siento que se hayan esmerado en sacar un buen producto para los fanáticos de la serie. No sólo no me gustó, sino que me pareció realmente aburrida y tonta y sin gracia. El arte apesta. Honestamente, yo realizo dibujos más lindos y creativos que los que verán aquí. No supieron adaptar el libro a una novela gráfica, ya que a) algunos detalles o se perdieron en la transición o simplemente fueron ignorados por los editores y los responsables de la novela (Jace y Alec usan vestimenta de Cazadores de Sombras al ir al Club Pandemonium. No se visten como simples mundanos), y b) si leyese esta novela gráfica sin haber conocido previamente los libros de Cassandra, probablemente terminaría arrepentida por haber perdido mi tiempo con ella. Si te gusta lo que escribe Cassandra, eres fan de sus series o simplemente quieres empezar a leer novelas gráficas, hay cientos de maneras diferentes en las cuales gastar tu dinero y perder tu tiempo.

    I finally took the time to read this and my review? It was just okay. The illustrations worked, but the story felt really condensed. And some of the demons were, well, not exactly what I pictured when I read it.

    Here I was all angry that the COB graphic novel was only going to be a digital release, that is until I came across this: http://books.simonandschuster.com/Cit... Looks like it'll be published by S&S in hardcover/paperback format next year. It seems they are aiming to release it around the same time the movie is set to hit theatres (August 2013). Good news for me considering I LOVE graphic novels and equally adore The Mortal Instruments series =D

    I liked the artwork in this graphic novel. This is my first graphic novel ever so I was pretty impressed. Compared to the movie and the book it definitely does get straight to the point with the important scenes. Not much else to say, but great work :)

    The artwork in this graphic novel is stunning! I really like the style and much like the movie/book it contains a bit of info-dumping. I wish they had adapted this for people who are already familiar with the story though and kept the plot moving. Besides that, like most graphic novels this is short but it is kind of ridiculously short considering it is a continuous story from one novel. For example The Walking Dead Vol. 1 "Days Gone Bye" is 144 pages. Yes, you can buy it per "episode" which is The artwork in this graphic novel is stunning!

Not sure why Cassandra Clare didn't do this same thing. They are just too short. |Featherbrained Books Blog | Twitter |

    This was a very good read. Very entertaining with a different take on supernatural season. I highly recommend it.

    WHAT?! That's it?! Only 20 something pages?! And it stopped in the scene where there's an attack in Clary's house. WTF. >:( Too short! Will there be a next volume or something? I wonder. Sigh.

    This book was about a girl named Clary and her adventure to find out what happen to her mother. The book started off with her going to a party and following some suspicious people into a back room, but she is the only one who can see them. The next day, she goes out with her friend when she gets a call from her mother to stay away from the house. All of a sudden, one of the people only she can see.

The book started off with her going to a party and following some suspicious people into a back room, but she is the only one who can see them. The next day, she goes out with her friend when she gets a call from her mother to stay away from the house. All of a sudden, one of the people only she can see. The boy's name is Jace, and apparently he is a shadow hunter (somebody who kills demons). Jace tries to talk her out of going back to her house, but Clary doesn't listen. Once she gets back to her house, she finds the place torn to shreds. Clary hears something upstairs and decides to investigate. It turns out to be a demon sent by a higher demon to kill her mother. During her fight with the demon, she gets scratched with poison that is deadly to humans. Thankfully, she knocks him out just in time for Jace to come kill the demon and take her someplace to get her healed. After all of the chaos about her almost being killed, her and Jace decide to investigate her mother's situation. They end up going to a person who can find lost memories from leaves in a tea cup. However, Clary's memories are somehow blocked. After much searching why, she finds out that Jace blocked her memories - in request from her mother. They try to find a way to reverse the spell by going to a hotel, but it is dangerous because that hotel is full of demons. Their little plan to get in and out didn't go so well, and they ended up literally getting thrown out with bruises and scratches all over. Since I don't want to give away the big ending of the book, let's just say we get to see Jace's point of view, and we find out that Jace sort of likes Clary, which throws off their investigation a little bit. I liked this book. It combined two different types of book into one, interesting story. I would recommend this book to anybody who likes adventure with a little bit of drama weaved into it.

    Fairly entertaining. Unfortunately there's so many stories in this genre now, it's hard for me to say how this story stands out above the others like it with magic, magical beings, a super-villian with evil underlings and a fanaticism about purity of his magical race, and a teenage protagonist who doesn't know her true calling (sound familiar, Harry Potter?). Clary, the heroine, was reasonably appealing, and intelligent, if dense about her feelings and relationships. I felt that the story was a Fairly entertaining.

I felt that the story was a little uneven, but maybe that's because it's the first of the series -- some of the character relationships are well fleshed out and some of the characters are very interesting - I enjoyed both Jace and Simon's sarcasm.

    The real question is: why is there a trend of turning YA novels (and ASOIAF) into graphic novels? Are illustrators hoping this will make people look at other, better graphic novels (like Watchmen, Batman: Year One, etc.)? I feel like the people who will read these will only read the comic version of their beloved YA series and those of us who genuinely enjoy graphic novels as a medium will continue to read the plentiful graphic novels out there.

    This book has a lot of action, adventure, and drama. I love this book because it has so many fictional beings. There are vampires and werewolves and faeries. The book starts off as the normal life of a teenage girl, but it all goes wrong when she runs into a murder. But the murder isn't a normal murder, its a vampire murder. She immediately falls in love with the killer. Then she starts seeing things that her mother has tried to stop her from seeing. Then her mom is kidnapped.

    omg, There's a graphic novel on this?! I'm excited to read this one. Graphic novels are awesome because they really do follow the book as much as they possible. I've only read two books that became graphic novels, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and so far I haven't been disappointed. So I'm guessing this one won't be a disappointment as well.

    OK, so this was quite a disappointment. Mainly because of the art. I much prefer the drawing style in the House of Night graphic novels, this just had a very basic, Scooby Doo feel to it. It was still fun to read and I imagine fans of the series will want to add these graphic novels to their collections, but I think I'll pass on the rest of these. At least for now.

    A beautifully written book. It was exciting and fun to read. A great YA storyline which incorporated monsters, demons and magic in a way which was grown up and captured the reader. However a disappointing ending leaves me questioning whether to read the series.
