The Review

A big thanks to Simon & Schuster Australia for sending a review copy of this book!

For the upcoming film, City of Bones, I knew there was going to be a lot of merchandise out for the film and honestly I wasn't all too sure about this particular guide as some movie guides can be better than other ones or are simply not great reads at all. Pointless even. Thankfully though, I'm really glad I requested a copy of this very light book and like the movie companion that I previously read before this one, this particular guide is a really great read and quite insightful as well.

While for most hardcore fans of The Mortal Instruments series may not read anything particularly new from this new title, but for any Cassandra Clare fan like myself, I found this book guide will be such a great item for collectors and fans of the film, but it will also be a great read for new fans as well newly coming into this series (though I'm sure most of us have already read and loved this series). Now probably out of everything I read in this book, what I had came to really appreciate from this small guide and what I enjoyed the most was all of the images it contained and the little details here and there about the characters, the places, and the overall rundown of the book series, so again it's a great item to have if you're a fan of this series.

Overall, the SHADOWHUNTER'S GUIDE is a must read for any fan of The Mortal Instruments series and now I'm even more excited to see the film next week!

The Rating
5/5 stars
