After 15-year-old Clary Fray sees something she can't begin to explain or imagine, she is thrown into the world of the Shadowhunters: the part angel, part human warriors and protectors of the Shadoworld, and apparently, her mom was one of them. Now with the help of Shadowhunters Jace, Alec, and Isabelle, she embarks on a weird acid trip of a journey to save her mom, her mundane world, and her calculus grade.

— From Annabel

Description


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.

And she’s more than a little startled when the body disappears into thin air. 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…
