For this review I am only going to tell you about the first book, City of Bones,  because once you read it you will HAVE to read the next two. It won’t matter what any review says, you’ll be immediately hooked.

The story is set in NYC and is completely one-of-a-kind. I fell in love with the characters almost immediately and to this day I still wish that I could live in this exceptional world with Clary and Jace.


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 in strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Clary knows she should call the police, but it’s hard to explain a murder when the body disappears into thin air and the murderers are invisible to everyone but Clary.
Equally startled by her ability to see them, the murderers explain themselves as Shadowhunters: a secret tribe of warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. Within twenty-four hours, Clary’s mother disappears and Clary herself is almost killed by a grotesque 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…..


This story is full of action, fear, fun, and of course, love. Every person that I know who has read this story–guys especially–have loved it! It will completely consume you and you won’t be able to put the book down. It is full of twists and plot changes that keep it interesting and that keep you guessing. The characters are just so fun and easy to love…you’ll find yourself going back to read it a second time. =]

This urban fantasy series opener spices its fight against evil with sexual tension. Fifteen-year-old geek hipster Clary thought she was just a normal kid, but normal kids don’t see invisible people, and normal kids’ mothers don’t suddenly disappear, seemingly captured by horrific monsters. But like many fantasy heroines, Clary isn’t normal, and she’s got all the secret parentage, dramatic revelations, and amazing magic powers to prove it….The story’s sensual flavor comes from the wealth of detail: demons with facial piercings, diners serving locusts and honey, pretty gay warlocks, and cameo appearances from other urban fantasies’ characters….Lush and fun.
