by Ravjit Kaur
Do you love werewolves? What about vampires? Ever heard of demons? Well, then this book is definitely for you. Filled with action-packed scenes, this great sci-fi novel will keep you on your toes until the very end.
Clarissa (Clary) Fray was oblivious to the world of paranormal creatures until the night she witnessed an otherworldly murder at the Pandemonium Club in New York City. She meets moody Isabelle and kooky Alec, the brother and sister. Then, there’s Jace. Who she can’t quite figure out. Quickly realizing that she’s something other than human, she lies to her best friend Simon for her sudden disappearance. Whirled into the world of the Shadowhunters, warriors that kill demons and keep werewolves and vampires in line, she struggles to understand why she is so important. When her mother gets taken by demons and she gets attacked by them, more questions arise. What would demons want with a human like Clary? And what does this have to do with the mysterious Valentine that everyone seems to hate? When the Mortal Cup(one of the Mortal Instruments) and Jace are taken by Valentine, Clary sets out with a werewolf pack, determined to get them and her mother back. When she finds Valentine, a shocking discovery about her own father and Jace sends the world spinning out of control. Will Valentine get away with betraying the Shadowhunters, leading an uprising, and kidnapping her mother? Or will Clary and Jace fight to get their old life back?
This is a wonderful book to read. The characters’ interactions are funny, witty, and hilarious to read, and the rivalry between the two sides is undeniable. If you want to know the story, then I would recommend reading this book. Don’t forget about the rest of the series! #2 City of Ashes, #3 City of Glass, #4 City of Fallen Angels, #5 City of Lost Souls, and #6 City Of Heavenly Fire.
