After Twilight: 10 More Novels Turned Movies To Look Forward To
City of Bones (Mortal Instruments) - Cassandra Clare
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: The first in Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones introduces us to Clary Fray, a teenager living in Brooklyn who learns she's a Shadowhunter and the descendent of a line of demon hunters. She's soon brought into the dark and dangerous underworld of demons and those like herself who exist to rid the world of these threats.
Clare builds a rich world around the novel's protagonist, taking extra time to detail the demons, weapons, runes and rules of this world, which should appeal to those who appreciate the fantasy genre and want a vivid picture painted as they follow Clary's story. And its modern-day setting serves to ground the story a bit in our reality, as Clary attempts to acclimate to her new calling and meets other characters in this world, including Jace, her potential love interest.
THE MOVIE VERSION: We actually just got our first look at Lily Collins in character as Clary Fray in this image, which came accompanied by an interview with author Cassandra Clare. Collins, who starred in Mirror, Mirror earlier this year, is joined by Game of Thrones star Lena Headey, Mad Men’s Jared Harris, and more in the cast. Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is set for release August 23, 2013.
