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.

5.0 Gelungener Auftakt einer Reihe
Da ich den Film gefühlte 237x gesehen habe und nun auch die Serie angeguckt habe, stand für mich fest, dass ich dieses Buch endlich lesen muss. Immerhin stand es ja schon lange auf meinem SUB. Ich habe mich nie rangetraut, da ich Angst hatte, dass es mir vielleicht besser als der Film gefallen könnt...

I debated reading this book for years. That sounds really dramatic when I say 'years' but literally it's true. I would periodically come across news about this book series, see it in the library or bookstores, hear the series recommended in book haul videos on youtube. I would always find myself sli...

5.0 Love At First Page
I have no better way to explain how I feel towards this book, than to just say it is my life. I fell in love with this series just after reading the first page. Cassandra Clare, you have a wonderful mind. Thank you for making this characters, and with such marvelous writing, helped them come to life...

4.0 City of Bones
I liked this book a lot more than I expected. I thought Clarey was a decent main character. I didn't much like most of the others. Jace was conceited and obnoxious, and I've watched enough booktube videos to feel uncomfortable as I watched his and Clarey's relationship forming. I liked Simon well en...

4.0 City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1) by Cassandra Clare
SPOILERS!!!2012 - Great plot. Very suspenseful, which had me speed reading most of it to see what happened next. I kept expecting/hoping to find a connection between the characters from the prequel and the characters from this one. I was angered by the revalation of (view spoiler)[Clary and Jace bei...
