Ts 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 kno I was instantly enchanted when I first read City of Bones and that enchantment still holds four years and at least half a dozen re reads later in sptite of the fact that I'm older wiser and should know better I've also read countless reviews both adoring and loathing and have come to the conclusion that this book does not garner any type of middle ground you either love it or you hate it I'm glad that I get to love it What else can I say?image error

City of BonesWhen 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 Wow I was reading some reviews on this and people either hate or love it I am not ashamed to say I belong to the latter Lots of opinions means there is lots of things to sayOk so I was practically splitting my head open thinking of what exactly I wanted to say about this book In the end I just decided to go with what comes to mind So here it goesClare does a superb job of drawing you in Maybe the plot isn't completely uniue but the world she created is I kept telling myself this is sooooooooooo interesting The whole shadowhunter thing oozes with coolness I mean half angel half kick butt people It doesn't get much cooler than that The story is full of action and yes sometimes there are things added for dramatic effect but isn't that the point? If you were looking for something slow paced read The Mill on the Floss personally I'd rather pull hair then read this but moving onI'm a sucker for action seuences so this totally delivered on that front The author's take on werewolves was original and I gotta say they give the vampires a run for their money I actually guessed most of the twists but that's some of the fun Finding the hints and feeling the satisfaction of saying YES Score for me I got it right Let's do a little victory dance Insert some break dancing moves I personally cannot do here I think some people didn't get that guessing the twists is all part of the experienceSome people claimed all of this to be fluff but I don't agree Just look at Jace The whole feeling about belonging has depth to it Now for why I knocked off a star even though I REALLY didn't want to I thought Clary would be shocked about finding out her history You'd think with how much her mother pounded in to her that there was not such thing as magic she would resist the whole idea Also I think the author tried to introduce too many fantasy creatures at once Like the scene at Magnus Bane house was overdone for my taste We could have done without so many new faces Those are just little irks though my main one was Valentine I know this is going to sound outrageous but Valentine wasn't bad enough for me I shouldn't feel this way looking at his track record he is evil The thing is I wasn't scared of him A good villain has got to be scary plain and simple I'm hoping to see evilness in him in the next bookWell I think I've said enough I'm so glad I'm reading this series after all the books are out I totally expect to be blown away by the next installmentLater added Guess what guys? They are making a movie and here is the trailer
