The Mortal Instruments series is good teenage fantasy fun so far (even with the weird messed up fake family stuff). I'm only on book two mind but they are quick reads with a few twists and turns in them.
I watched the film recently and maybe I didn't read the descriptions right but the dad looks nothing like I thought he would! I was imagining a Daniel Craig type rather than Jonathan Rhys Meyers in gypsy mode. The rest were good though. YAY for the Irish one from Misfits! Why would anyone like Jamie Campbell Bower more?
