I actually read this book a couple of years ago, but with all the books I read within the same genre I constantly get mixed up with characters and story lines. So with the upcoming movie I just had to go back and re-read it. Yup…. I still love it! This is an awesome book and I have a feeling that the movies will be even more popular than the Twilight Saga! Can’t wait to see it!
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….
Like I mentioned earlier, I really liked this book. I like this genre and enjoy reading books with a light feel to it, that typical YA feel of a book that just makes it fun and enjoyable. There’s action, romance and of course I love when the main character is a bad ass chick.
