City Of Bones - Cassandra Clare

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 Jade, 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 herm other? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know...

Demons? Angels? People who don't know anything about either yet get thrust into the world? Hellz yes please. And that is what the Mortal Instruments series has. City of Bones is the first book in the MI series, if people have been following around the internet lately or your a bibliophile you'll know that Cassandra Clare has also just started another series related to MI, Clockwork Angel is the first book in the Infernal Devices series. But that aside, this is a good book if you want to sit down and read for a few hours, but be warned it is hard to put down once you really get into it.

I mean who doesn't love Clary and Jace's conversations? Jace's attitude, Simon's Simon-ness, Isabelle's kick-ass-ness. This is an amazing book but be warned if you get into it, you are hooked for the series.
