City of Bones >> Book Review

City of Bones (Mortal Instruments)
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
The Mortal Instruments Book 1
paperback pages:
My Rating 5 stars

When 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 odd markings. This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons-end keeping the werewolves and vampires in line. It's also her first meeting with gorgeous, golden-haired Jace. 

Within twenty-fours 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 an ordinary mundane like  Clary? And how did she suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know....

My Review
This is the first book in the Mortal Instruments Trilogy and I don’t have enough words for it. It’s a story about a world that is hidden from the humans where these Shadowhunters fight the demons that have entered the earth.

Clary is our main character and she discovers that she is one of them when her mother went missing and a demon attacked her. As she was drawn into this world so did I when I started reading the first pages. The author, Cassandra Clare has a certain way with the words that makes you want to live into this magic world.

I found all the characters enjoyable and for the first time I think I found a book that combines funny scenes, dark elements, fast paced action and deadly gorgeous men all thrown into the mix to make the most delicious book. Add to that a very complicate love triangle and you have a hit!

There is a lot of drama in this book but the events and the characters justify each action taken in this book.
The writing style is my favourite. It’s written on third person narrative which made the story stand up. This way we could get a glimpse of every character in this book.

Overall this book was amazing! City of Bones will keep you reading with the hot action and twists till the very late hours.

Buy the book at Amazon | Book Depository (Hardback Format)
and Amazon Book Depository (Paperback Format)

I found a fan-video made by traube7 which I love and think shows the book really good.
