Welcome to my first book review of 2019! It honestly doesn’t seem possible that we are in 2019. But somehow we are so let’s start the year as we mean to go on, with a book review. This week it is all about The Mortal Instruments Graphic Novel Part 1 by Cassandra Clare and Cassandra Jean. Let’s do this!
I loved this little graphic novel. I cannot wait to pick up part two. It was such a brilliant edition to the Shadowhunter chronicles!
I absolutely adored this new version of the story. it was just so nice to be back in this world and story that I love, but with a fresh new take on it. I think that they did the graphic novel perfectly. It contained all of the major plot points from City Of Bones (well the first half of it) and even a lot of the smaller moments that truly make the original series, but it was condensed enough that it was fast paced and didn’t drag. I will admit that I was impressed by the amount of the little details they managed to fit in, for instance Church judging Simon, Izzy’s cooking etc, etc. those where the details that made me fall in love with these books in the first place, so it was so nice seeing them included in the graphic novel adaption.
And as for the art work, well it is just beautiful. I think that Cassandra Jean has done a fantastic job at bringing these characters to life! each character looks how I pictured them. and not only are they stunningly drawn the detail in them is just incredible. you can see so much of each character’s individual personality and traits just in the way she has drawn them. I think the scene in Taki’s diner shows that. There is just so much Alec in Alec in that scene. I was so impressed by how much she managed to show in the characters.
All in all, I am very glad that I have finally read this adaptation. And I cannot wait to pick up part two. If you are a fan of the shadow hunter chronicles, you need this in your collection.
