Title: The Darkest Minds

Series: The Darkest Minds , #1

Author: Cassandra Clare

Published: December 18, 2012
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know... 

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

I know I'm kinda late. And I know, the fuss about this book has already subsided. But, I think it's better to be late than not to read at all right? Hahha. Anyway, This first volume took me for about 1 month to get through with it. The first hundred pages are boring for me. I was really lost with a lot of characters that I need to remember. But upon the succeeding chapters, It started to capture my interest and imagination.

I really loved Clary's character, She has this side of hers that she can be as hard as stone when she needed to be. Not a typical kind of heroine who's actually a damsel in distress (which I really hate by the way). Although I was waiting for her to learn on how to do the combat moves against the Demons (which never happened YET), I was never disappointed with her.

As for Jace's character, I was really confused about his character sometimes. But as the story goes on, I realized that he actually liked Clary. Not so showy isn't it? Hahahha. Anyway, I think his moves are a little bit cool, and suave. Hahhahaha. :) But I think I was starting to like him instead of Simon.

Oh My! But the ending?! Why did it turns out that the supposed to be lovers, Clary ad Jace are actually SIBLINGS. Which in my part is a major WHAT THE HELL?! Anyway, I'm intrigued to find out how the second sequel will be. I am more than excited to know what will happen. ^^,
