About this item

Don't miss "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," soon to be a major motion picture in theaters August 2013.

Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go--especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil--and also her father.
To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings--and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?
In this breathtaking sequel to "City of Bones," Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation.

Different people have said that if you like twilight you should read this book, so i was just wondering if there was a love story involved because it doesn't seem so from the description. Thanks.

  • A. This series is nothing like twilight. Yes of course, it has vampires and other types of supernaturals. It does have a love story to it. It doesn't get into the love story part until several chapters into the first book. Then it gets better through out each of the other books. I'm on the 5th book now. It's an awesome series. :)

  • A. There is a love story involved in this book, it is complicated just like in twilight. So if you liked those books/movies you will love these too.

  • A. I believe the series is all about love. Clary loves Jace and Simon and the tension that developes is very powerful and really moves the story along.
