Book Report - The Mortal Instruments City of Bones

Title: The Mortal Instruments City of Bones
Authour: Cassandra Clare
Length: 485 pages
How long it took me to read: 2 days
Grade: A

What it's about: 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...

The ending is the most important part: The ending has a bit of a Star Wars twist (more in the spoilers) which I kind of saw coming, but in a good way.

Last word: I am so on board with reading every book in this series.

Spoilers after the jump

Yay! Another series I can devour when I'm done with the Uglies series! I loved the characters, I love the writing, I loved the story.

*Spoiler* I kind of rolled my eyes when it was revealed that Jace was Clary's brother, because: 1) ewwww, they kissed! and 2) now there will be no competition for Simon! (I was rooting for Simon anyway) I was relieved that there was not going to be a love triangle.

I was disappointed in Hodge. Why did he have to be such a coward?

Cassandra Clare is my new favourite authour, I can't wait to read everything that she's written, because it all looks just wonderful!
