A Review: City of Bones

Wow, it's been a long time since I wrote! Sorry about that; school just started and it's going to be a super uber busy semester. I'll still try to write once a week, but I'm not promising anything.

Anyhow, over the break I read the City of Bones series by Cassandra Clare. These books are full of exciting events, plot twists, and intriguing characters. It is filled with otherworldly characters including (but not limited to) vampires, elves, and werewolves.

Be warned though, that these books are PG-13. There is some language and one of the main characters is homosexual. Some of the scenes between two of the main characters get a little steamy too. Therefore, I would recommend this series to mature highschoolers (and older people) who can handle these things. Overall, it was a well-written series that keeps one's interest throughout each book.
       -Oh, and the first book, City of Bones, is going to be a movie, but no one knows when yet.

So what are these books about?
Well, in the modern-day New York City area, Clary Fray goes to a club with her best friend, Simon. There, she has her mind opened to a larger world than what she sees everyday. Through a young man named Jace and his friends, she finds out about the Shadowhunters, an elite group who kill demons.

The night Clary comes back from the club and strange happenings, her mother disappears and Clary esapes her house with her life barely intact. Who took her mother and why can Clary see the Shadowhunters when humans aren't supposed to see them?  Clary's life is about to change in dramatic ways, as will the lives of those who bring her into the Shadowhunter world.
-This is just a review of the first book, City of Bones. If you want to know what happens in the other books, you'll just have to read them!
