City of Bones Review...

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.



So this is a re-read for me since the show is coming out soon I figured I would read them again.  It's even better the second time around.

Clarissa Frey's mother is abducted by the father she was dead a few days after she starts seeing the Shadow World.  Jace Wayland is a Shadow Hunter and orphan.  After her mother is abducted Clary gets a crash course in the Shadow World while living at the Institute with Jace and the Lightwood siblings.  They journey on a quest to find the missing Mortal Cup and save Clary's mother.  Chaos ensues, romances bud, secrets are spilled, friendships are lost but can everybody survive?

As I said before this book is even better the second time around.  The characters and drama in this book are so realistic.  Everything is so well written and the energy of the book is amazing.  I have no words for how much I absolutely love this book.  The books are so detailed and life like.  I would totally live in this world if it were real.  This book is basically flawless.

If you have not read The Mortal Instruments Series then you really should.  This is in fact book one of the series.  All I can say while I enjoyed the movie they made I hope the TV show does the book better justice.  I will be moving onto re-reading book two City of Ashes real soon.

Thank you Cassandra for an amazing series.  It exceeds expectations!

5 shadowy stars!
