City of Bones: Mortal Instruments, Book 1

City of Bones - Cassandra Clare It was interesting, although it felt a little contrived at times like the story was forced. I didn't get the Star Wars ripoff complaints until the end, but I found it was interesting how similar they were. They were also so different in a lot of ways that it felt more like an allusion to Star Wars than a blatant rip off. I liked it, but I'm not jumping up and down.
