The Mortal Instruments Day 15: Ch. recap + "I hope in the movie they have..."

Woo!  Day 15 of the TMI read-a-long!  Is this book giving you all the feels yet?  It's like, my millionth time reread it and I'm enjoying it as much as I did the very first time I read it.  This read-a-long is in anticipation for the release of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie release on the 21st of August.  Myself and some other bloggers will be recapping a different chapter each every day until the movie's release, along with adding a little extra post to get you more familiar with the characters and the world.

Chapter 15 recap

By the Angel, was this chapter intense or what?  We start right up with a huge fight between the werewolves and the vampires!  Right when we thought the situation Clary and Jace were in in chapter 14 couldn't get any worse, they are suddenly thrust into the middle of a war between two feuding species.  And not only were both the vamps and the wolves fighting each other, they were also fighting to capture Clary.  It was so scary and intense and the writing was absolutely fantastic.  My heart was pounding, especially once Jace, Clary, and rat Simon began racing up the stairs to the roof.  And when the wolves knocked down the door to the stairs and started thundering up after them . . . holy.  Crap.  They did get to the roof relatively unharmed but to escape before all the beasts catch up to them, Jace decides to get on a motorcycle and ride off the roof.  And he didn't even know if the bike could fly or not.  Luckily, it could.  But that didn't stop them from crashing once the sun came up and the demonic energy in the bike sputtered out.  This was a huge chapter.  A lot happened and we got to see more of the downworlders than we have previously.  I also really liked the way we got to see a bit of tension between Jace, Clary, and Simon.  Some love-triangly stuff starting to show through.  

"I hope in the movie they have..."
They better have the part where Jace and Clary ride off the roof on that motorcycle.  That part was so awesome and scary and intense.  I loved it so much and I think it would really add some awesome visual effects.  And they could so pull it off.  Come on, give us some Jace and Clary flying through the air on the motorcycle.  That would be so cool!

  1. I'm looking forward to that motorcycle scene as well! Great recap. This tour has been so much fun so far.

  2. I don't know if we will have flying motorbikes or young men turned into rats. Having watched and read all the interviews so far, watched the clips and trailers, I bet we won't. They want to make it realistic and used very little CGI. So ... but I may be wrong. We will discover soon!
    Loved your recap!
    Thanks for sharing my giveaway ;-)

  3. Awesome post! I agree with the motorcycle scene and amazing recap! Thanks for being apart of the tour!
