Cassandra Clare's 'The Mortal Instruments' trilogy

Finished Cassandra Clare's 'City of Bones' last week, City of Ashes' this week, last is 'City of Glass'. Not horrible, simply *bad* fantasy. Trite & lacking in almost all areas - character, story, writing style, content.
Picked first one up hoping for a great read like 'The Hunger Games'.
Not all books are winners.
I can summarize the books as vapid Harry Potter-esque styled fantasy, featuring vampires, werewolves, and 'ShadowHunters'. A thick trilogy, each book 500 pgs, but barely enough content for 1 book. Almost as light as Anime, except un-self-consciously vapid.
