When her mother disappears, Clary is attacked by a demon, and is drawn into the world of the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. But why would demons be interested in normal people like Clary and her mother? How can Clary suddenly have the sight, these beings are invisible to everyone else. The Shadowhunters would like to know...

Rich, vivid, entrancing. City of Bones is all those things and more. As I read this book, I felt that sense of childhood joy that I remembered from reading C.S. Lewis' Narnia series and Madeleine L'Engle's Wrinkle in Time, and the many fairy tales and legends growing up. I found the world-building in this series without fault. I have to give it to Cassandra Clare for creating this book. It was a fantastic concept that kept me enthralled to the last page.

I definitely recommend this book for any Hunger Games, Divergent, Harry Potter, and Twilight fans out there. It is truly a fantastic series.
