City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Release Date: March 27, 2007
ISBN: 1416914285
Description: from goodreads

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.


Setting up a completely different world than our own would be hard, Cassandra Clare does it perfectly. From page one you are sucked into the story and in the end left wanting more. Cassandra Clare's story is suspenseful, filled with hot guys, and an all around amazing and original read. 5/5
