Synopsis

Don’t miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, now a major motion picture. Discover this first installment of the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and “prepare to be hooked” (Entertainment Weekly).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 listeners on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

About the Author

Cassandra Clare, real name, Judith Rumelt, is an American author, best known for her young adult fiction works. Her bestselling effort is The Mortal Instruments. She was born to American parents of Jewish descent in Iran in 1973. Her grandfather was film producer Max Rosenberg. During her formative years, Clare traveled extensively throughout Europe. She went to high school in California, then split her time between there and New York. She ended up working for The Hollywood Reporter. In Los Angeles she began to write some Internet fiction pieces, but just before writing her first book, The City of Bones, she deleted them.

City of Bones was released by Simon and Schuster in 2007. It is fantasy inspired by the landscape of Manhattan. Next came City of Ashes, and City of Glass, which completed the first trilogy. The second trilogy featured City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls, and City of Heavenly Fire. In 2013, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was made into a movie starring Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower. Clare currently resides in Amherst, Massachusetts, with her husband and three cats.

Honestly, this book doesn't have much different to offer than most of the fantasy books published in these past years. A teen girl encounters a new world she never knew about, learns of her secret parentage, and starts to fight a dark side. If you read books like Twilight, The Summoning, Blood and Chocolate...anything that involves faeries, werewolves, and vampires, then you're already seen the characters in this book multiple times. I'd recommend this to any young adult following this year's book trends, but an adult may not like this book series.
