This is a gorgeous box set of the first three books in The Mortal Instruments series, which has been a massive hit in both the UK and the US. Who better to wax lyrical over it than none other than Stephenie Meyer of Twilight fame: 'Dear Edward and Jacob: I adore you both. But I'm spending the weekend with jace. Sorry! Love, Stephenie'.

Irresistibly drawn towards a group of sexy demon hunters, Clary encounters the dark side of New York City - and the dangers of forbidden love. Box set contains paperback B-format editions of City of Bones, City of Ashes and City of Glass . The Mortal Instruments series has over one million books in print. It has been on the New York Times bestseller list for six months straight. The books have been translated into 19 languages and have also appeared on bestseller lists in Germany, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.


Praise for the Mortal Instruments series:

'The Mortal Instruments series is a story world I love to live in. Beautiful.' Stephenie Meyer, author of Twilight

'Funny, dark, and sexy. One of my favourite books.. Cassie's writing makes my toes curl with envy.' Holly Black, author of The Spiderwick Chronicles

About the Author

Cassandra Clare

Cassandra Clare was born to American parents in Teheran, Iran and spent much of her childhood travelling the world with her family, including one trek through the Himalayas as a toddler where she spent a month living in her father's backpack. She lived in France, England and Switzerland. Since her family moved around so much she found familiarity in books and went everywhere with a book under her arm. Her favourites included the work of the Bront' sisters and Tolkien, as well as the Chronicles of Narnia, Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles and Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising series. She spent her high school years in Los Angeles where she used to write stories to amuse her classmates, including an epic novel called The Beautiful Cassandra based on the eponymous Jane Austen short story (and from which she later took her current pen name).

Cassandra's first piece of professional writing, a short story called 'The Girl's Guide to Defeating the Dark Lord', appeared in an anthology of humour fantasy. She hates working at home alone because she always gets distracted by reality TV shows and the antics of her two cats, so she usually sets out to write in local coffee shops and restaurants. Cassandra likes to work in the company of her friends who see that she sticks to her deadlines. She loves writing humour and fantasy and hopes to try her hand at horror and science fiction some day.

Things you didn't know about Cassandra Clare

1. I only type with two fingers.

2. I once interviewed the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

3. I have two cats, Linus and Lucy. Linus is huge and Lucy is tiny, so if you averaged them out, you would have one normal cat.

4. I have a scuba diving certificate but I never dive due to my fear of sharks.

5. I often get distracted listening to audio books on my iPod, then realize I am lost and have no idea where I am.

6. My favourite food is sushi.

7. I hate coffee but I like tea.

8. I was once taken in by an internet scam offering to sell me a penguin.

9. My dream is to have a library in my house, so big that it requires ladders to get to the tallest shelves.

10. As a child I wanted to be a windsurfing instructor and live in Tahiti.
