The Mortal Instruments is a young adult paranormal romance/urban fantasy, set in a colorful version of our reality where humans walk unaware of not just the vampires, werewolves, fey and warlocks, but also demons and their part-human enemies - the Shadowhunters. The books are fast flowing with vivid characters, a lot of action, and interesting twists.
The world of The Mortal Instruments is built upon the existence of Angels and Demons, with the assumed existence of God. Demons play a critical part in the ongoing plot, Angels are seen and interacted with from time to time, but God is not credited with any role active or unseen. The Shadowhunters and other preternatural races are the product of Angel or Demon blood mixing with humans (or a demon disease). The main characters are focused on protecting the human population from demons and evil, but they have no connection to Christ, do not think of themselves as Christians, or display Christian values in various moral and sexual situations. So while The Mortal Instruments is built around certain biblical facts (with significant creative license) got most of this from sarahs reviews

Incarceron is a prison unlike any other: Its inmates live not only in cells, but also in metal forests, dilapidated cities, and unbounded wilderness. The prison has been sealed for centuries, and only one man, legend says, has ever escaped.
Finn, a seventeen-year-old prisoner, can’t remember his childhood and believes he came from Outside Incarceron. He’s going to escape, even though most inmates don’t believe that Outside even exists. And then Finn finds a crystal key and through it, a girl named Claudia.
Claudia claims to live Outside — her father is the Warden of Incarceron and she’s doomed to an arranged marriage. If she helps Finn escape, she will need his help in return.
But they don’t realize that there is more to Incarceron than meets the eye. Escape will take their greatest courage and cost far more than they know.
Because Incarceron is alive.
This book kept me on my toes the hole time.
Alothough for some reason it took me a while to get into the book, the book is goes in and out between two stories with the same goal and sometimes even splits into 3 parts, and so it was confusing at first but then.. i think after chapter 4 the page is suddenly on chapter 15 or so when reading it. As a slow reader as myself, i found myself finishing this book within 2 or 3 days(i guess it helped having the audio book and the physical book as well in which i strongly recommend for this book) when it would normally take me 6 or 7 days to read. I also feel as if its a sort of sci-fy fantasy a little bit with a hint of Victorian Age. I do recomend this book because although i tend to stick with reading mangas and watching animes for some reason i had this book set on my mind for even after i was done reading and wished for more.
The world is a different place. This generation has inherited the sins of mankind’s pride, and live in a world without seasons. In the underground city, 4 stray dogs live their life; each one with dark past to atone for.
Mihai is a retired hitman who works at a cafe, trying to stay apart from anything related to his former life. He’s often in a mild depressive state, but still has the sharp instincts and handgun handling skills he developed during his former job. Badou is your typical coward guy, with long red hair and a eyepatch over his right eye. He’s also a compulsive smoker; he’s so addicted that when he doesn’t get his nicotin supply he goes into a berserk state, shooting around with his dual Mac 10 (a fact that his friends exploit during confronts.). Naoto is a deadly maiden trained in the arts of swordmanship and is searching for the man who killed her parents, made her amnesiad and left a huge cross shaped scar between her breasts. Haine is the most peculiar of the bunch: he’s albino and has regenerative powers who allow him to survive wounds that would kill normal men. Because of that skill and also the fact he’s tormented for having killed his “sister” Lily, he has a suicidal stance during gunfights, while using his trademark white Mauser pistol and black Luger.
This bunch of assymetrical characters cross their paths when they involve with the swellers of Deep Below, a rumoured lower underground where beasts and abominations are being created and tamed for unknown ends.
i couldnt personally come up with a good review for this (even though it is one of my FAVORITE mangas but here is were i got it from CLICKY there is mny tribute to the original author ^^
Good and evil battle for the future of 23rd century Earth in this visually striking big-budget science fiction epic. In the movie's prologue, which is set in 1914, scientists gather in Egypt at the site of an event that transpired centuries earlier. Aliens, it seemed, arrived to collect four stones representing the four basic elements (earth, air, fire and water) - warning their human contacts that the objects were no longer safe on Earth. A few hundred years later (in the 23rd century), a huge ball of molten lava and flame is hurtling toward Earth, and scientist-holy man Victor Cornelius (Ian Holm) declares that in order to prevent it from destroying the planet, the same four elemental stones must be combined with the fifth element, as embodied by a visitor from another world named Leeloo (Milla Jovovich). However, if the force of evil presents itself to the stones instead, the Earth will be destroyed, and an evil being named Zorg (Gary Oldman) will trigger the disaster. Despite her remarkable powers, Leeloo needs help with her mission, and she chooses her accomplice, military leader-turned-cab driver Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis), when she literally falls through the roof of his taxi. Writer and director Luc Besson began writing the script for The Fifth Element when he was only 16 years old, though he was 38 before he was able to bring it to the screen. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
What if virtual reality wasn't just for fun, but was being used to imprison you? That's the dilemma that faces mild-mannered computer jockey Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) in The Matrix. It's the year 1999, and Anderson (hacker alias: Neo) works in a cubicle, manning a computer and doing a little hacking on the side. It's through this latter activity that Thomas makes the acquaintance of Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), who has some interesting news for Mr. Anderson -- none of what's going on around him is real. The year is actually closer to 2199, and it seems Thomas, like most people, is a victim of The Matrix, a massive artificial intelligence system that has tapped into people's minds and created the illusion of a real world, while using their brains and bodies for energy, tossing them away like spent batteries when they're through. Morpheus, however, is convinced Neo is "The One" who can crack open The Matrix and bring his people to both physical and psychological freedom. The Matrix is the second feature film from the sibling writer/director team of Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski, who made an impressive debut with the stylish erotic crime thriller Bound. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
