City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Clary Fray didn’t think that one night at a club would change her entire life forever.  Until she witnesses a murder commited by teenagers covered in tattoos and carrying strange weapons.  Stranger still, she can’t report the murder because the body has disappeared and she realizes that she’s the only one that can even see any of it happening.  This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors trained to rid the earth of demons.  But Clary has more to worry about than Shadowhunters and demons.  Because her mother had disappeared.  And she needs to find out why demons would be interested in normal people like herself and her mom before it’s too late.

I’d heard a lot of people talking about these books so I thought I’d give them a whirl.  I liked that the books sucks you in immediately and you get to learn about this whole new world.  However, I didn’t feel a huge attachment to any of the characters.  It’s a fun read and I’m excited to delve further into the world of the Mortal Instruments.  I’d definitely suggest this book if you’re looking for a fun YA read.  Not my absolute favorite (which pretty much means no tears were shed, hehe) but still a fun book.

    I agree with you, this book did not make me shed a tear but after reading the second book, I had to keep reading about Jace and Clary. There are four books so far in the series and I can't wait for the 5th and 6th one.

    There's something about Jace Wayland I like so much. I guess I like the bad boys with a soft heart.

    You should definitely keep reading the series. It's such a different world of vampires, werewolves, faeries and warlocks.
