This book was the best one by far in the series. I loved the setting of Idris and Alicante. It was a nice change from the common and familiar setting of New York City.
City of Bones was a great start to a thrilling series. YA novels are not typically my "drug" of choice, but this one didn't feel "teeny" at all while I was reading. If you are looking for an exciting fantasy, this is the series for you!
