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.
Perhaps this isn’t a new book, it may just be an oldie, but believe me if I say it’s a goodie! If you haven’t read this yet then you should probably just change your name to Patrick, because you have been living under a rock!
Seriously, I can’t give enough praise for this book! The characters are multidimensional, the plot is gripping, and the story is both packed with action and full of heartache. If you aren’t cheering these teen super heroes on then you have no heart!
So what’s this entire fan fair about?
Let’s meet Clary. She is an artistic young girl with all the fiery passion of your typical redhead.
She has her trusty sidekick Simon, a geeky boy who is in a band (what was the band’s name again?). The two are inseparable. That is until Clary is tossed into the world of Shadowhunter’s, where no one is who or what they seem to be. Even Clary, just what is she? She meets the sarcastic and sexy Jace, cold and stoic Alex and the flirtatious and spicy Isabelle, three tough warriors bent on the destruction of demons. And do I smell a romance between Jace and Clary?
With the help of Brooklyn’s High Warlock they just might save the day from an evil over lord!
This book is thrilling from the first page. Cassandra Claire does an amazing job at painting a vivid
picture of her exciting world. This book is a gateway drug to the series that is The Immortal Instruments.
