Clary was a seemingly ordinary teenager until she discovered she was the descendant of Shadow Hunters. they were half angel warriors who continued to protect the world from demons. one day, she found her home ransacked and her mother missing. she joined forces with a group of Shadow Hunters, who introduced her to an alternate world called the Downworld, filled with demons, vampires, and werewolves.
despite the promising storyline, the characters felt exaggerated yet flat emotionally. Clary was a beautiful character that had such exaggerated facial expressions, while Jace in contrast had a blank facial expression. from there onward, it was difficult to get into the storyline or love its characters. while many compared the film to the Twilight series (2008-2012) for its beautiful characters, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) had made Twilight (2008-2012) felt Award worthy especially for its stunning ability to engage us emotionally.
