“If you knew how to cook, maybe I would eat," Jace muttered.

Isabelle froze, her spoon poised dangerously. "What did you say?"

Jace edged toward the fridge. "I said I'm going to look for a snack to eat."

That's what I thought you said." Isabelle turned her attention to the soup.”

― Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

Isabelle Sophia Lightwood is a Shadowhunter, currently under the Conclave.

Isabelle at first shares the Lightwood family's snobbish attitude toward mundanes and Downworlders. However, after meeting Clary and Simon, her attitude towards mundanes begins to change as she befriends them. Isabelle has a great sense of style and is very fashion conscious. She is also somewhat promiscuous. Isabelle is a fiercely loyal friend but is volatile and prone to mood swings. Isabelle is described as very flirtatious. She dates many different boys, especially boys that her parents won't approve of…

What was your favorite part in the chapter? :)


  1. Great recap! This blog hop is so much fun!

  2. Jessica @ from Day 3 stopping by! Love all the specific info on Isabelle; can't wait for the movie to come out!

    New follower on GFC and google+!

  3. Yes, you're right. This is just the beginning :-)
    Have you noticed this scene had to be changed in the movie? Apparently Clary has no sensor with her and will be saved by Jace. Never mind, I'm sure it'll be extremely thrilling anyway. Have you seen how good is Lily at conveying Clary's terror when she says: "What the hell was that?" whispering, in a broken voice?
    I can't wait for the movie! Also to see more of Isabelle. We've seen so little of her so far!
    By the way, my favourite part in chapter 4 is: "He (Jace) caught her (Clary) as if he were used to catching fainting girls, as if he did it every day. Maybe he did." (yeah, I know, I'm an incurable romantic)
    Thanks for your recap + character introduction

  4. Thanks so much for being apart of the tour! Great post!
