Introduction

(

A deliciously exotic urban fantasy that is sexy, mysterious and dangerously good fun!

When 15-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.

I loved it. I agree with another review that it is a good read for both teens and adults but better for a teen group to discuss. I couldn't put it down. I had to get City of Ashes ASAP to find out what... (read more)

I came to the same conclusion as the last book!
I really enjoyed it, but was left hanging and disappointed with the ending.

Fun adventure, great romantic chemistry.

 
  "Really great read for teens and adults."by Sonyab (see profile) 06/16/10

I really enjoyed this story. I began reading it to determine if it was appropriate for my daughter to read and was quickly hooked. The characters are very entertaining. There is just the right mix of... (read more)
