Synopsis according to GoodReads:
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 recommend this book for fans of well-written YA, adventure and action fans, folks who enjoy a dash of fantasy and mythology in their modern-day fiction, those who enjoy great characterization, fans of kick-butt heroines, those who enjoy romance that doesn’t fall into the typical overdone book tropes, and pretty much everyone.
