by Cassandra Clare
The book takes place in 2008 when fifteen-year-old Clary Fray has her whole world turned inside out after an interesting night at the Pandemonium Club. Clary sees three shockingly attractive teens covered in black markings sneak into a back room and decides to follow them. There she witnesses those teens kill a young man, or so she thought. The next day, when her mother disappears, Clary is tossed into a world she never thought existed. A world filled with vampires, werewolves, fairies, demons and shadowhunters. She learns that shadowhunters are half-human half-angel beings that keep her world safe and their world in check. On her quest to find her mother, she receives help from the three shadowhunters she saw in the club who are wondering how a mundane person like Clary can see them. With her newly found companions, Clary finds herself uncovering the truth of her mother’s not so bright past, and the life she would have led as a shadowhunter.
If you are someone who likes to read novels filled with magic, action and romance, then you will definitely want to read this. If you usually don’t read books and want to try it out, this book will definitely get you into reading. It is not just words on a page. It’s a whole other world that you’ll want to be a part of. I would rate this book as 14+ due to the mature language that was used a couple of times. Overall, this book was phenomenal, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good read.
