CJ Daugherty came up with her top 10 list of secret society books and THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series made the cut!
Also on the list are Daughter of Smoke and Bones, Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix and Game of Thrones.
"There is nothing like a good secret society to draw you into a novel.
The dark shadows of mystery, the veiled threat of it all, the unseen
attacker – it sets a spinechilling stage for any thriller.
are a secret group who look very much like ordinary humans but who are
only really a little human. Technically nephilim – or half-human,
half-angels – they have superior strength and natural skills that allow
them to see and fight the demons that threaten the world. The story of
16-year-old Clary Fray, an ordinary girl who finds out one day, when her
mother disappears, that she is not an ordinary girl at all but one of
the shadowhunters, is consistently thrilling. Clare writes amazing
battle scenes, and spins hugely suspenseful story lines. The impossible
becomes possible when she is writing. These are among my favourite YA
books available at the moment.
This is not just true of adult books but of books for young adults as
well. For years now, writers for all ages have been cheerfully exploring
the most evil of intents from the most secretive of groups."
