I fully admit that while I was so, so excited about the first episode of Shadowhunters, I was a bit cautious, too. I love The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, and whenever books are turned into movies or TV shows, there are changes. There have to be, but fans don’t always like it. So I went in with high hopes that the TV show would be at least somewhat true to what my mind saw while reading, knowing that it wouldn’t be perfect.
So here’s the outcome: it’s really close – and I totally want more. If you’re a fan of Clare’s books, you simply must check the series out!
I truly am happy with how the show is treating the story so far, even with the changes that have been made. I think the changes will make the story better for a TV series, and I can’t wait for the next episode! What will Clary find out in the City of Bones? Will she get any closer to finding her mother? We’ll all find out next Tuesday!
