Protective Analyse two characters. Describe their physical characteristics and their personality traits. Themes/Issues Question and Answer What is the theme of your novel? What message, moral or lesson is the author trying to get across to the reader? Was the theme explicit or implicit? The main setting takes place in busy, crowded New York City. The city that never sleeps. Though it is known for its bright lights, there really was not much importance to it. The setting could have taking place in California or Vancouver—anywhere in general. Either way, there would still have be a Pandemonium Club and an Institute. Not much of NYC itself is described so it did not set a certain mood. Describe the main setting. How important is it? Does the setting help set a mood? Question and Answer Setting The author expressed that no matter how difficult our goal may seem, we should try to accomplish it. "...pillows piled..." "He had electric blue hair that stuck up around his head like the tendrils of a startled octopus..." "He could smell her mortality, the sweet rot of corruption." My favorite part was when Clary discovered where and how to find the Mortal Cup. It was my favorite part because Clary discovered this through her art. She was sketching an image of a cup, reached into her picture and pulled the cup out of the drawing. Even though I don’t have the ability to reach into one of my drawings and pull an object out, I felt like I could relate with Clary in some sense that many things can discovered in your art. As I read this story over and over again, I fall in love with it more and more. I felt that this novel was extremely well-written, taking it’s readers to another world full of dark and mythical creatures and I would definitely recommend this book to any reader.
“This fast-paced fantastic thriller will keep readers on the edge of their seats.”—VOYA
“Strong plot, brilliant heroine, and surrounding cast of intriguing and well-developed side characters…” –The Bulletin of the Centre of Children’s Books How do you feel about this novel? Would you recommend it to someone? Give reasons. Two Thoughts Question and Answer What do you think was the best part of this novel? Why? Clary's goal is to save her mother and find out who she really is. To achieve this goal, she joins three Shadowhunters in their quest to find the Mortal Cup. What is the plot? Tell what the conflict or goal is and how the character is trying to solve or achieve it. Plot Question and Answer Question and Answer Figurative Language Clary Fray and her best friend Simon are at the Pandemonium Club. She witnesses three “Shadowhunters” kill a demon. Finding her apartment trashed and her mother missing after receiving a call to stay away from home, Clary finds a demon and is forced to kill it. Jace takes Clary to the Institute for a place to stay and she meets Hodge and Isabelle and Alec Lightwood. Clary and Jace run into Simon after going through a portal in Madame Dorathea’s apartment and tell him everything that’s happened so far. Clary and Jace are taken to the City of Bones after “Silent Brother” Jeremiah found a block in Clary’s mind keeping her memories sealed—to break it with the other Silent Brothers. They discover the name Magnus Bane. Isabelle, Jace, Simon, Alec, and Clary trace Magnus Bane to a party and learn that he placed the block on Clary by her mother's request. Magnus can’t bring back her memories because it will be too difficult. During the party, Simon drinks a unknown substance which turns him into a rat and is then abducted by a vampire, leaving Jace and Clary to rescue him in a vampire-infested lair. Clary and Jace are helped into the lair, the abandoned Hotel Dumont, by Raphael, who betrays them, revealing that he is the current leader of the vampire coven. They are saved by werewolves who want Clary and they escape along with Simon, who eventually returns to his human form. Clary comes to realize that her mother hid the Mortal Cup inside a painting—the hand-painted Tarot deck her mom made for Madame Dorothea. Clary and her friends retrieve the cup. They return to the Institute and Hodge betrays them by handing over the Cup and Jace to Valentine, whom he had been working with all along. Luke tells Clary that he is a werewolf and they track down Valentine. Luke’s pack raid his hide-out but are ambushed. Luke’s pack stay behind to distract the enemies while Luke and Clary enter the hide-out. Clary finds her mother unconscious and chained up. Valentine reveals that Jace and Clary are siblings, shocking the two—who by then realized that they have fallen in love with each other—after Clary finds them. Valentine escapes to Idris (the Shadowhunter capital) with the Mortal Cup. (The Mortal Cup is one of three Mortal Instruments given to the first Shadowhunter by the angel Raziel, and if Valentine has them, he will be able to create a whole army of Demons.) Jace and Clary's story ends with them trying to come to terms with the fact that they're related. "Mmm-hmm." The theme determination was explicit. Many characters had a goal in mind and stopped at nothing to achieve it. For example, Valentine never gave up on his theory that all demons deserve to die. Jocelyn was determined to keep her secret and Clary was determined to find out the truth.
