City of Bones

Finished February 17
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
This is the first book in a teen series. Clary Fray has grown up with a somewhat overprotective mom. Her best friend is Simon and the two teens go out to an all ages club near their homes in New York City. While there Clary sees something happen that she realizes no one else sees. She tries to deal with this on her own, but can't make sense of it. When her mother disappears, and she is attacked by an extremely scary monster, she finds herself rescued by one of the people she saw earlier. She learns that there is a whole other world that she has been unaware of, one of demons, and the Shadowhunter warriors who keep them in line. She also learns that the Sight she has developed to see these beings also is part of her heritage and part of what endangers her life. As Clary moves further into this new world and works to find and save her mother, she also learns about herself and her capabilities. An interesting beginning.
