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...

London, April 1812. On the eve of eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Wrexhall’s presentation to the queen, one of her family’s housemaids disappears-and Helen is drawn into the shadows of Regency London. There, she meets Lord Carlston, one of the few who can stop the perpetrators: a cabal of demons infiltrating every level of society. Dare she ask for his help, when his reputation is almost as black as his lingering eyes? And will her intelligence and headstrong curiosity wind up leading them into a death trap?

My favorite thing about...

Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on 28 September 1330. Nearly seven hundred years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest Alchemyst of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life. The records show that he died in 1418. But his tomb is empty and Nicholas Flamel lives. The secret of eternal life is hidden within the book he protects - the Book of Abraham the Mage. It's the most powerful book that has ever existed. In the wrong hands, it will destroy the world. And that's exactly what Dr. John Dee plans to do when he steals it. Humankind won't know what's happening...

An excellent sequel of the book Dark Star. Audrey needs to sort out her feelings, She is torn with the decision of staying safe, as her sort-of boyfriend/guardian wants, or following what her instincts are telling her.

An excellent follow-up to the first book, Burn Bright picks up right where Dark Star left us. Audrey struggles to protect the people she cares about, and that just might be the problem. Her Guardian/sort-of boyfriend, Leon, is who she cares about the most, next to her mother, would sacrifice himself for her, but Audrey refuses to let that happen. Torn between her...

Coraline is already bored with her new apartment. She has explored every inch of the tiny space, until she discovers a door that wasn't there the first time she looked. The door leads Coraline to the Other World where she meets her Other Mother and Other Father, far more interesting versions of her parents with black buttons for eyes. Coraline spends the day exploring the Other World and when she is ready to leave her Other Mother offers to let Coraline stay in the Other World forever...if she sews buttons over her eyes.
