|I'm glad that I can finally take this book off my too read list. Hooray! Anyways I thought this book was okay. I don't exactly hate this book since I gave it three stars, but at the same time I did not love it. I thought the plot was interesting and the twist at the end make me want to read the second book. I could not believe the ending; say it ain't so! Overall, I thought the main character was annoying and a bit needy? I'm not sure if that's the right word I want to use, but anyways she kept getting herself into dangerous situations in which everyone else had to risk themselves to save her.|
Synopsis from Goodreads: 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.
