!Tropes:
* AerithandBob: Her real name Judith Rumelt versus her pen name Cassandra Clare.
* {{Doorstopper}}: There's no book in the ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'' series that is less than 400 pages. Shout out to ''City of Heavenly Fire'' for being a nice 725 pages.
* TheFilmOfTheBook: The movie based on ''City of Bones'' was released in 2013 and a sequel was planned, but was scrapped the following year. However, a television show based on the series named ''{{Shadowhunters}}'' has been made, soon to be airing on ABC Family.
