Book Review: City of Bones
City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, book 1) by Cassandra Clare.
When 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 in odd markings. This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons--and keeping the odd werewolves and vampires in line. It's also her first meeting with gorgeous, golden-haired Jace. 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 an ordinary mundane like Clary? And how did she suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know...
All the stories are true. Once Clary begins to see the streets of New York with the Sight, the world will never be the same again. City of Bones is a fabulous beginning to The Mortal Instruments urban fantasy series. An action packed, character driven novel of friendship, love, loyalty, and betrayal and the consequences of knowing the truth. Filled with fabulous paranormal creatures, endearing characters, hot romance and unexpected twists that will leaving you gasping for more. This is a must read for urban fantasy and paranormal romance fans!
I recommend City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, book 1) to readers of paranormal romance, fantasy, science fiction, young adult, and especially to fans of urban fantasy.
