City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

“The meek may inherit the earth, but at the moment it belongs to the conceited. Like me.”  

It seemed like the perfect, miserable weather to indulge in a quick fix of paranormal YA fiction. With the recent press junket for the movie version of this novel recently wracking up a few column inches, I decided to dive in and give it a go.

This is a speedy read with fantastic pacing. Sure, some of the standard tropes can get a little tired, but there is enough action to distract and entertain.

I couldn't help but draw out similarities with another YA series - Harry Potter. It has muggles, this has mundanes - I think you get my drift.

 4 out of 5 a snippet of distraction that entertains.
