Synopsis

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder – much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing – not even a smear of blood – to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

Review

This book will keep you on the edge of your seats! one of the best novels I’ve EVER READ… and one of the few books which was very memorable and worth reading repeatedly! 😛 City of Bones is full of action, mystery, fantasy, humor, surprises, and of course romance 🙂 Jace Wayland is the guy of your dreams! haha!

The City of Bones is the first book to the Mortal Instruments series. It is about the Nephilim called “Shadowhunters” who fight off demons/monsters in different parts of the world. Clary Fray, the protagonist, a fifteen-year old girl who finds out that she has the blood of the angels, discovers her true identity, the part of herself which her mother had kept from her for years. She meets Jace, a gorgeous, arrogant, and skilled shadowhunter whom she falls for in the middle of the novel. The story switched into gear when Clary’s mother, Jocelyn had gone missing, and when she was attacked by a demon. Clary was pulled into the shadowhunter world to find her mother and the person who kidnapped her…

Highly recommended! City of Bones is the best book to read if you are looking for a good fantasy novel 🙂 Rating: 5!

Shadowhunters are the new thing! Say good-bye to vampires and say hello to fallen angels! Cassandra Clare has created the perfect fantasy/adventure novel! Exquisite!
