A while back I saw the books in a store, and read the summary on the 1st book, and thought sounds interesting to read. Then I saw the movie of the first book: City of Bones and want to read all of the books beginning with the first book!! I sincerely hope the production studio can somehow find the budget to make the next film and try to re-cast actors from the first film!! I'm disappointed they have not done sequel and am not interested in watching a t.v. series about the books!!
