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.

CITY OF BONES REVIEW
December 28th, 2014
The City of Bones is an amazing book that at some parts made me cry, scream, or laugh. Never have I read a book that shows what a hard-working author can do. In this book Cassandra, or Cass lives a pretty ordinary life, unil one day at the club she witnesses a demon being murdered. This leads to her finding out soo many puzzel piecses that most would have though of lost. I highly recomend this for people aged 11-to the day you die. Because of this book Cassandra Claire is now one of my favorite authors with Rick Riordan and Judy Blume. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Sienna
