My Review: 4/5

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.

I have to say that throughout my time reading City Of Bones, I couldn’t help but to compare it with the movie. Although, the book, City Of Bones is way better than the adaptation. I’m not even being biased because it is completely the whole truth. 

As everyone is aware of, Cassandra Clare’s books are phenomenal. And I just realised that because this is my first time reading her work. People were really not exaggerating when they talk about how amazing her books are. 
Everything in the story is so well thought through and all the details are so vivid that I really find myself a character in the book. 

Absolutely phenomenal and I had the best time getting inside Clarissa Fray-Morgenstern’s extraordinary world.
