The Shadowhunter’s Universe is currently a set of three trilogies ( The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, The Dark Artifices ), and side stories/mangas set around the lives of the Nephilim. These beings are a race of people that exists solely to protect the world from supernatural predators : demons. However, elitist tendencies and racial discrimination against all non humans tends to give rise to lots of world ending conflicts, drama and Romeo-Juliet-esque relationship tendencies. It is a vivid imaginative world that, although centered for a YA audience, does well to captive all ages. Further, Cassandra Clare is always good about having a diverse cast of well thought out characters, and isn’t too bad about cliche’s. To knock it all off, who doesn’t love YA sappy dialogue sometimes in their life? Cocky bastard’s witty puns are a definite need in our society. DEFINITE.
(Hard to rate b/c varying feelings on the different series she’s had. Plus, varying timelines. For my purposes I will do post dark artifices which is the most “recent” one within the timeline of the series history)
