Description-

  • Explore the world of the Mortal Instruments with Cassandra Clare and more

    Join Cassandra Clare and a Circle of more than a dozen top YA writers, including New York Times bestsellers Holly Black, Rachel Caine, and Kami Garcia, as they write about the Mortal Instruments series, its characters, and its world.

    Inside you’ll read:

    • A cinematic tutorial on why the best friend (Simon) always loses out to the bad boy (Jace)
    • The unexpected benefits of the incest taboo
    • What we can read between the lines of Alec and Magnus’ European vacation
    • The importance of friendship, art, humor, and rebellion
    • And more, from the virtues of Downworlders to the naughty side of Shadowhunting

    This anthology of essays explores Clare’s Mortal Instruments series and its characters, offering different interpretations of the books and exploring their deeper meaning. For fans, this anthology will enrich their appreciation of the series, and for those unfamiliar with Clare’s work, it will pique their curiosity. In this audio edition, narrators Emily Beresford, Luke Daniels, and Tanya Eby deliver solid, but not particularly compelling, performances. The use of multiple narrators helps distinguish each essay in the collection, but it might have been rewarding to fans if Clare had read her introduction to the book. A Smart Pop paperback.

    A selection of essays about the Mortal Instruments series edited by the series' author offers a couple of gems and a lot that's not. Amid the mostly shallow veneration, a few entries stand out. Kate Milford's "Unhomely Places" is not so much about the Mortal Instruments series as it is a love song to New York as seen through the uncanny lens of the books. Michelle Hodkin, in "Simon Lewis: Jewish, Vampire, Hero," examines both the parallels and the contradictions of Judaism and vampirism, closely reading Simon to see the heroism in his complex combination of the two. Other essays miss the mark. Kami Garcia's "Why the Best Friend Never Gets the Girl," for example, uses John Hughes movies to explain why Simon would never date Clary; are there no recent appropriate cultural touchstones? Multiple entries heap praise upon the series for its incorporation of queer relationships and mixed-race characters, though none of those essays point out that these queer and mixed-race characters are never the protagonists. Most of the entries focus on the series' romantic aspects: incestuous tensions, one-sided crushes, brotherly love. Textual analysis sits side by side with "Malec" as a portmanteau describing the Magnus/Alec relationship, "OTP" to refer to the idea of a fan's one true pairing and Facebook relationship statuses to explain character interactions. Self-serving, but enjoyable for committed fans. (Nonfiction 15-18)
