My Review: City of Bones

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

From Goodreads

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....

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.

My rating: 
I so enjoyed reading this book! You just don't want to put it down, totally keeps you right at the edge of your seat! The book has everything in it, vampires, werewolves and fairies. The characters are fun, exciting and memorable. Clare writes some really vivid details that will help you conjure up a great mental image to help you understand the characters. There is a twist at the end of this book, so when you finish you want to pick up book 2 City of Ashes.

Just Nook It!  Theresa

  1. I don't like that twist at the end. I still refuse to believe it! But I am going to continue reading the series. Glad you liked it :)
