Don’t miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture in theaters August 2013.Delve into the details of all things Shadowhunter with this illustrated guide to the knowledge and lore of the Shadowhunter world.Since the thirteenth century, the Shadowhunter’s Codex has been the one and only manual for Shadowhunters looking to brush up on their demon languages, learn proper stele use, and discover just what exactly a pyxis is. Featured in both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, this guide is a necessity for any young Nephilim on their journey to becoming a Shadowhunter. Beautifully illustrated, the Codex contains images of the famous Shadowhunter homeland of Idris, as well as depictions of demons and other Downworlders. But this isn’t just any copy of The Shadowhunter’s Codex. It’s Clary’s copy, and as an artist herself, she’s sketched pictures of her friends and family in the book, and scrawled helpful advice in the margins. Of course, she couldn’t exactly stop Jace or Simon from adding their thoughts either. Part encyclopedia, part history, part training manual—complete with commentary from Shadowhunters who have seen it all—this beautiful guide is a perfect supplement to the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Of course, the side notes from Clary, Simon, and Jace were the best parts, in my opinion. Not that I didn't like reading about the history of the Mortal Instruments and al...
I really liked this. It was interesting to read about, but the best part ofnit was the comments. Clary, Jace, and Simon all wrote comments in the book. These were the best part. I would randomlynburst out laughing. It is a fun companion to the series.
As "The Codex", it turns out a little disappointing, because it seems more like a guide for new shadowhunters or a shadowhunter texbook (seriously, it even has activities!). But as a textbook, it's fun and has some interesting information for fans. And Simon's comments are the best.
This isn't something I can write an actual review for, as it's a guidebook and fun addition rather than an actual novel. If you are a fan of Cassandra Clare's books, especially TMI, then obviously you should read this (I recommend physical rather than e-book, I can't imagine the artwork and side not...
