When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder -- much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing -- not even a smear of blood -- to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
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. . . .
It's not strange for me to do opposite things in life, for example I read newspapers form last page. I have no idea why but it's just me. Well the same thing is here. Everyone is reading a central series first and then the spin-offs, but not me. The Infernal Devices is the first Cassandra's series I've read and every since I wanted to read this one and finally that time has come.
Clary is a young girl with pretty normal life, but as usual she doesn't know the whole truth. While Jace is boy with unusual life the one many people don't know about, still that world is not without a secret. Accidentally meeting one another will change their lives forever. Now Clary has to learn all about the world she never knew about and find her own place in it. Being back with Shadowhunters has its advantages, many of them actually. I'm honestly in love with the world that Cassandra created and I'll be back in this world again. Seeing as the world is created and divided was a magical journey and that's what I maybe missed in The Infernal Devices. But as much as I loved The Infernal Devices this series left the bad taste in my mouth. I'm sorry for comparing the two but quite honestly I can't help myself. You can feel how the author's writing advances in The Infernal Devices and how her characters are more mature. All that makes the series better than this one. Still a lot of people told me that this one becomes better with time so I can't wait to see more. Also there is a movie and don't get me start about the whole Jace-Clary relationship.
For those reasons I'll continue this series, but right now I'm really curious about the movie. Honestly I can't wait to see it.
