About this item

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murdermuch less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. Its hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothingnot even a smear of bloodto show that a boy has died.

Or was he a boy?

This is Clarys first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. Its 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 Jaces 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 Clares ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

A Great Read

Customer review by Kennysmom17

City of Bones is a great novel. I'm kind of upset that Walmart has this book for $5.00. When I purchased it, I bought it as set on a different website for $35.00 because walmart didn't have this book or the sequels. This is a steal. I definitely would recommend getting this book and at this low price.

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. Yes, there is an attraction between Clary and Jace and they do have chemistry, but it does not work out for reasons I am not going to tell you. You'll have to read the book to find out.

  • A. This is one of those series written for young adults so the situations and language are appropriate for teens. I found this story line to be a little far out there for my taste, but I passed it on to a friend at work and she loved it. There is a love interest (or two)for the main female character but chaste.

  • A. Yes there is a love interest in this book. I wouldnt say that if you like twilight then you will like this one. This by no means is a filler for twilight. There is a love story between the main character and two other boys and between her mom and a guy.
