Don’t miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, now a major motion picture. Discover this first installment of the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and “prepare to be hooked” (Entertainment Weekly).Enter the world of the Shadowhunters in this special edition of the New York Times bestselling City of Bones, complete with gorgeous cover art from the movie. 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. And she’s more than a little startled when the body disappears into thin air. Soon Clary is introduced to the world of the Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of warriors dedicated to driving demons out of our world and back to their own. And Clary is introduced with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is almost killed by a grotesque monster. How could a mere human survive such an attack and kill a demon? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Library and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts:
What can I say about this book? I can say Oh.Mah.Gawd!!! I was hesitant with this book. I didn’t think I would like it at all so I put off and put off on getting it and reading it……but, I finally broke down and did it after checking it out from the library. Oh.Mah.Gawd again……. I am so pleased with every aspect of this novel!

Clary’s character is wonderfully created but Jace’s character…….good lord, I loved every bit of him! The ups and downs that Clary and Jace went through was amazing and I felt like I was a part of every bit of it. The murders, the Shadowhunters, all of them added up to be one heck of a ride!

Ms. Clare’s work is wonderful and I am so glad that I finally listened to everyone and read this 5 star novel. Now, I’m literally dying to read book 2. I absolutely can not wait to get it from the library and continue one with these amazing characters and the Shadowhunters. Fabulously done, Ms. Clare! Keep up the fantastic writing and you definitely have a new fan in me!

    If this is your genre by all means…read it. For me it was a little too dark.
