"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..."
This book is amazing I thought at the beginning it would end up disappointing me but it didn't disappoint. I am so glad I read it and also that I read it in time for the movie. This story is great for those who love fantasy, SiFi, and books dealing with other worldly creatures. I loved the story of clary and how she is trying to find her mother and also finding herself in this crazy circumstance she has found herself in. I also love how they portray all the different creatures like werewolves and vampires and etc. I give this book a BIG two thumbs up!!! It is definitely a book worth reading!
