When 15-year-old Clary Fray ventures to a local club, she witnesses a murder by a group of strangely tattooed teenagers. As she hurries to call the police, she realizes that the body has disappeared and the murderers seem to be invisible to everyone except her. This is Clary’s first encounter with the Shadowhunters, warriors whose missions are to rid the earth of demons. Clary is pulled further into the Shadowhunters world when her mother is kidnapped by a demon. Clary turns to Jace, a cocky yet handsome Shadowhunter, as she seeks to learn why demons would be interested in ordinary humans. City of Bones is the first of six novels in the Mortal Instruments series. The sixth and last installment entitled City of Heavenly Fire will be released in March of 2014. Each book follows Clary Fray’s journey into the mysterious world of demon hunters as she seeks to defeat the evils that threaten her life.
