Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Don't miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture in theaters August 2013.
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.

Book description

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.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 16reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderful! I ordered this book because I have seen the movie but hadn't had the chance to read the book yet. I haven't started it yet, but the book arrived on time and was in perfect condition. 03/11/2014
Rated 3 out of 5 This is just another newly popular tween sci-fi romance novel. If you're a Twi-hard this is right up your alley. There is romance, and science fiction and action. Unfortunately it ended so ridiculous and cliche that I couldn't subject myself to the rest of the series. If you're a 14 year old female, go for it. Otherwise, save your time and read something better. 10/20/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by BOUGHT THIS FOR MY GIRLFRIEND AND ME I read this book before and I enjoyed it. My girlfriend saw the movie but never read it. So i bought this copy for us. :) 02/10/2014
