Gr 7 Up—This graphic novel version of the first volume in Clare's "Mortal Instruments" series remains true to the spirit of the original story about a teenage girl who discovers a fantastic world that's invisible to most humans. Clary is out at a club one night when she notices a strange man and woman nearby. She follows them and stumbles upon an ambush. When she cries out to stop the attack, everyone is surprised that she can see them. Clary discovers that creatures such as demons, vampires, angels, and fairies exist and that they live alongside humans, who usually can't see them. She also learns that she and her mother are inextricably linked to this fantastic world, which means that they are both in danger. Jean's artistic style makes the characters look angular and ethereal, like manga with a touch of the TV series Æon Flux, and is very well suited to the absorbing narrative. VERDICT Fans of "The Mortal Instruments" (the book, film, and TV versions) will appreciate this latest interpretation of these characters, but newcomers will also enjoy it.—Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library

I've never actually read The Mortal Instruments all the way through. Goodness, I didn't even make it through the entire first book in audiobook format even though I was enjoying it. I've failed this book even when I've really enjoyed it. However, I have finally managed to finish it in graphic novel format, and I can say that this might be my favorite version of it so far. To be honest, I can't confirm it kept the storyline in tact or compare it to how it was but from what I remember in the audiobook I read last summer, it kept a lot of the same information in it and just moved things a bit faster along than what the real story did. It did take out a few things but honestly not too much from what I can remember. The art was okay. There were some great images, but it wasn't quite perfect. Like, I never found some of the most attractive looking people supposedly all that attractive? I thought it was okay, but I didn't quite love it. The images of the Silent Brothers were some of my favorites. They were intensely done and quite cool to look at it. It was good, but I think it could have been greater. I did like the pacing of the story as well. Sometimes I do have a struggle with graphic novel format from the original story because it either rushes by the original novel's main points or doesn't go quick enough. This pacing was just right, and I felt like I was speeding by it at the right time. I thought it was brilliant. Overall, I definitely would recommend this graphic novel - whether you're a casual Mortal Instruments fan or if you're just trying it out. I think it had enough information that you would get it if you were just starting it off. I can't speak for true Mortal Instruments fans if it did the series right or not, but I did really enjoy it. It kept me enraptured. However, the art wasn't my favorite, but it was good enough. 4 crowns and an Ariel rating!
