The benefits (no, really!) of incest...at least in literature
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. Number-one New York Times best-selling author Cassandra Clare created the Mortal Instruments in 2004 with City of Bones (Simon & Schuster, 2007). Since then, the series has grown to five books, with a sixth due in 2014, and been joined by two spinoff trilogies and an upcoming film starring Jamie Campbell Power and Lily Collins.

Should have read the description first

I received an alert from audible informing me that another book had been released by one of my favorite authors. I purchased the book without a second thought only to find that it was more like a study of the history of this genre and a look into the inspiration for the Mortal Instruments series. Not what I wanted and really sorry I bought it.

Dreadful not worth the money

What would have made Shadowhunters and Downworlders better?

Some real insight
I have really enjoyed the books and thought it would be interesting to get a bit more background - this book did not deliver

What was most disappointing about Cassandra Clare (editor)’s story?

School type essays - nothing new revealed, just others thoughts on the book

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Narration excellent - best bit

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

Total waste of money - audible has produced better freebies e.g interviews with the author than this

Very Disappointed

What would have made Shadowhunters and Downworlders better?

I have totally enjoyed all Cassandra Clare's books of the Mortal Instruments and have all of them but this Shadow Hunters was not what i was expecting when i purchased it with one of my audible credits i feel rather cheated with it the whole book is like a documentary about how Cassandra put together the whole series of books of the Mortal Instruments I was looking forward to a follow up to the last book and now all i feel is disappointed with the Author and i fail to understand the need to write this book if i wanted to know more about ruins and tattoo's i would Google it

What was most disappointing about Cassandra Clare (editor)’s story?

I said it all above there was no need to do this book any one of her reader could have Googled the information if they had wanted to know certain things a waste of time and money and i feel disappointed by it

How could the performance have been better?

Cassandra did not have to waste her time writing it her time would have been much better spent writing another follow up to the Mortal Instruments which i truelly enjoyed every one of them

What character would you cut from Shadowhunters and Downworlders?

None

Any additional comments?

Disappointed
