City of Bones Kindle Fire To download now please click the link below. http://www.azondle.info/ctb 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.
Reviews I actually really enjoyed this book although I was skeptical since it was in the "youth" "young adult" section. Ms. Clare did a wonderful job developing the characters. I appreciate that she did not follow only one of the characters but various through out the series. I hope the movie is fairly accurate because it will be disappointing and seriously annoying if they stray from the book. ====================================== Not that the spoilers will matter much, most likely, because I might very well be the last person on the planet to read this series. I don't know why it took me forever to read this book. I really don't. It was amazing! I love the world that is created in these books is incredible. So interesting, it keeps you reading- you never want to stop. This book introduces shadowhunters, and their role in the world is to hunt demons. But humans (or mundanes) don't know they exist. In this quasi-other world of shadowhunters and demons, there are also downworlders. Creatures that I see as a kind of go-between for the first two. They are things like werewolves and vampires, and they do not get along well with shadowhunters. I really enjoyed all the characters too; Jace is super yummy.
I'm really glad that Alec started to come around to Clary by the end of the book, but I do wish the semi-niceness had happened earlier. I have to say, I beyond hate that Clary and Jace are sister and brother. It kind of creeps me out and annoys me. That is my one complaint about the book. I'm going to try and get over it in the future books. But I am loving learning more about their world! Every time a new creature/demon/downworlder is introduced I want hear more on Ms. Clare's take of them. She has such an interesting way of describing anything. She can make a rock sound fascinating. The book was fast paced, and original and the world is addicting. -Michelle @ Bookbriefs.blogspot.com
