Staff Reviews


I adored this YA novel and the books following it in the series. Second only to the Harry Potter books in my love for fantasy, it has something for everyone, with romance, action, humor, monsters, a fierce female lead, and in my opinion some of the best quotable lines in YA literature. Prepare to laugh and cry as you get to know a few of the most memorable characters this genre has to offer.

Discover the world of the Shadowhunters in the first installment of the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and “prepare to be hooked” (Entertainment Weekly)—now with a gorgeous new cover, a map, a new foreword, and exclusive bonus content! City of Bones is a Shadowhunters novel.

Soon Clary is introduced to the world of the Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of warriors dedicated to driving demons out of our world and back to their own. And Clary is introduced with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is almost killed by a grotesque monster. How could a mere human survive such an attack and kill a demon? The Shadowhunters would like to know…
