Another Review

Book: City of Bones
Author: Cassandra Clare
Rating: 4.5
Cover: 3, it's a nice cover but i think it could be improved, i also do not like that it is shiny.
It’s after dark in New York City, and Clary Fray is seeing things.  The best-looking guy in the nightclub has just stabbed a boy to death – but the victim has vanished into thin air.  Her mother has disappeared, and a hideous monster is lurking in her apartment.
With her life spiralling into darkness, Clary realizes that she has stumbled into an invisible war between ancient demonic forces and secretive Shadowhunters – a war in which she has a fateful role to play…

This is just the first in the great Mortal Instruments Series. Like many books, this book is hard to begin reading at first. When i was a quarter of the way into it I was compelled and couldn't put it down! It is a great read and the characters are excellent (especially Jace, who is described and voiced extremely well). I liked that there were alot of different supernatural species in it including, warlocks, shadowhunters, Fae, demons and werewolves, It simply made for a better story.I adore this book and if you're contemplating buying it do it, I even bought it after telling myself I wasn't going to.
