When 15-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...

I am not going to come up with an intro this time I am simply going to dive into this book review! This book was amazing. I know I use the word amazing a lot to describe books, but there was no other word for this book.

This book was action packed and I loved those parts. I found myself sneaking to the next couple of pages just reading dialogues and then stopping myself because I had to read the page in front of me.
Honestly, I’ve heard so much about this book and put of reading it and I have no reason why because this book is currently and will be for a while my favorite book now. There is no words to describe this book it had me glued to my seat. I was amazed to see that it only took me 2 days to read this big 485 page books, but it went by so fast because I was enjoying it so much.

Clary, Oh gosh what can I say about her, but she is someone I can relate to so much because we are somewhat alike. Jace, the hot boy that I fantasize about being with someone like that. The budding relationship between them was too cute and then the shocker at the end. Then, there was Alec , with his sarcasticness was funny at times, but actually rude, but I still liked him.

This book had everything! I mean straight down to the werewolf and vampires. This book to me is the ultimate Ya book you can read. If you haven’t read it you totally should.
