So I thought I’d start with introducing myself before I get stuck in to this blogging:
My names Lecura I’m pretty much into all things artistic, writing, music, art, photography and the list goes on. I grew up in the city in Western Australia but I am originally from the United Kingdom you’re going to think England right??? Wrong, actually from the north of the United Kingdom, Scotland. Anyways enough about me and more about what I’m going to be talking about.
Let’s start off with what I’m going to write about or blog if you like?
Where do I start? Oh yes, let’s start with the name of the book/tv series I’m going to be blogging about.
The book series Mortal Instrument written by Cassandra Claire . There was one movie made called Mortal Instrument: City of Bones which is adapted from the first book. The movie starred Jamie Campbell Bower (Twilight) as Jace Wayland, Lilly Collins ( Mirror Mirror) as Clary Fray, Kevin Zegers ( Gossip girl) as Alec Lightwood, Jemima West (Maison Close) as Isabelle Lightwood, and Robert Sheehan (Misfits) as Simon Lewis just to name a few. The movie Mortal Instruments: City of bones came out in 2013.
Then came ideas in 2015 for a tv show instead to be called Shadowhunters, the first season aired this year 2016 and it’s a little different to the book and the first movie. The actors of the characters have been changed and of course the accents of some of the main characters.
Staring in the tv show as the main character is Katherine McNamara (New year’s eve) who plays Clary Fray, Dominic Sherwood (Taylor Swift style video) who plays Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende who plays Simon Lewis, Emeraude Toubia who plays Isabelle Lightwood and Mather Daddario who plays Alec Lightwood.
The tv show Shadowhunter starts off with Clary starting to see people and ruins that no ordinary mundane can see.
She starts to get flash backs of memories she didn’t know she had or even done in her life. Her mother had kept a lot from her but now as her mother has been kidnapped by dangerous shadowhunters, it is up to Clary to pursue in order to save her mother. She dives into the world that her mother was once a part of with risk of becoming one of them: a ‘Shadowhunter’.
In order for her to save her mother she must trust other Shadowhunters Jace, Isabelle and Alec who help Clary into helping with her destiny as well as finding her mother. They train her to become one of them but will she take the path of becoming one of them or will she go back to living a mundane life, an easy life compared to a shadowhunter life? What destiny will she choose?
Watch the show and find out what happened to Clary and see if she saves her mother from evil and pursues her destiny of becoming a shadowhunter or not??
The tv show was very different from the first book City of Bones without giving too much away they have changed a lot of what and where things happen. The author Cassandra Claire had a big hand in what was going to happen in the tv show which was good as it was her vision she was showing the rest of the mundane world.
The actors that were picked for the roles do need some time to get used to them, as we all remember the movie and how much different it is. Sometimes the character chooses the actor not the other way round. So hopefully season 2 will bring us closer with the actors and start to feel more comfortable with them playing the part they were given or chosen.
Shadowhunters is one of my favourite tv shows it takes you into another world that only would happen in dreams, movies, tv of course and also books. We use our imagination and having it brought to life makes it that much easier to envision the story.
Imagination is all we really need, don’t forget that.
You can watch the series on Netflix
Enjoy Mundanes :)
