Clary is an ordinary fifteen year old girl. Everything in her life was going fine until one day she went to the Pandemonium Club with her best friend Simon. She saw the murder of a boy and eventually he vanished into the thin air. Three teenagers wearing strange tattoos and holding strange weapons, murdered that boy. On that night Clary was introduced to a new world of "SHADOWHUNTERS".
She met Jace Wayland on that night and since then her life went upside down. Jace Wayland is one of the Shadowhunters, who has killed the demon boy on that club night. Shadow hunters are assigned to keep the earth safe from the demons and other harmful supernatural creatures.
Within twenty-four hours, Ravener (demon) kidnapped her mother and she has no clue what a demon could possibly want from her mother. Clary's mom had always tried to keep her away from the Shadowhunter world and stuff. But when her mom got missing, she unravels the truth about herself and her family history.
I really enjoyed this book. It was filled with adventure and action. I love the villain the writer created. Honestly, he's the most manipulative and attractive villain. I like the Clary's character, she is just like a normal teenage girl with whom the other girls can relate to. Her geeky buddy Simon is the sweetest and supportive friend, we all wish for. Jace Wayland is a fallen angel who is an introvert and lives under the shadows of his father. I think Magnus Bane deserves the award for being the fashionista and coolest warlock.
The plot is pretty twisted and I wasn't expecting the truth to be so bittersweet and heart wrenching. I was expecting this book to be filled with awesomeness, after all that hype and buzz about it. But it was good and enjoyable.
