~The Novel is based on a young girl Clary, who finds out that her life is nothing that she imagined. She finds herself belonging to world she didn't even know existed, a world where Warlocks, Demons, Vampires, and even Werewolves exist. She is a Shadowhunter. (and i am completely jealous.) The Novel has bits of violence, adventure, thrill, and even unexpected romance.
and best of all...The Movie is coming out in 2013. so in other words... GET READING, so you can be one of the popular kids that can say "oh i was obsessed with that book before you even knew about it!" (**snob statement**).
SO here is the link to see who is playing what character! if you have read the books and have any opinions or such i want to hear and discuss. I'm really sad that the character of Valentine hasn't been listed but i think that someone like Jason Isaacs or Thomas Gibson would be great choices. I have someone who agrees too! check out her choices, love her choice Emma Stone for Clary or I think a red haired (natural looking) Kristen Prout! http://booksofamber.blogspot.com/2011/09/ambers-mortal-instruments-dream-team.html
