Book Title: City of Bones
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publish Date: March 27, 2007
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Fantasy
Plot: Clary Fray stumbles upon a world that most humans do not see. This world is full of Demons, Shadowhunters (who kill said demons), vampires, and much, much more. The world that Clary thought she knew starts to tumble as she struggles to understand why demons would be interested in killing a mundane, those that normally do not see the shadow world, and why Clary is the only mundane known that is gifted with the Sight.
Overall Thoughts: I really began to love this book after the first 100 pages or so. The action and intensity of the story is something that cannot be compared to most books.
