The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

Clary Fray was queuing up with her best friend Simon to enter an all age club called Pandemonium. While in the line there was a boy being stopped by the bouncer because he had a sword. That incident caught people's attention and Clary's too because of the way he looked. The boy manage to prove to the bouncer that it was a fake sword and in the end he manage to get into the club. The club was filled with many people and there were many people on the dance floor. 

The boy went in feeling triumphant as he manage to pass the bouncer by tricking him. He had a motive being there and his target was vulnerable humans to suck up their life source. In the midst of the dance floor, a beautiful lady approached him and beckon him to an empty storage room. To him it was so easy to get a prey tonight but Clary saw there were two black figures following behind. She also saw the two figures had weapons with them and then she reacted and told Simon to call for help while she followed them. Once she entered the room it seemed empty but suddenly she could see that the boy was being bounded to a pillar. Clary didn't know what to do except to yell for them to stop before one of the person plunge a knife at the boy. 

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare is a story about a girl who could see something that no ordinary people could. Her journey follows as she discovers a world that is hidden from her. This is the first book for the series and also the author's debut book. I have to say I really enjoyed it and it was a wonderful adventure. I thought it would just be demon hunting and killing judging by the movie trailer but I was surprise by the story thoroughly. I loved all the characters of the book and I love that most of them have a fascinating past to it.

I like how the author plotted the chapters and the story had a wonderful fluid to it. For me I think this book is better than Twilight because there is so much more to the story besides forbidden love. This book is more about adventure than love which is amusing because it can't always be love but it's not lacking in that department either. I love the action of the book and I think the author truly wrote well in fight scenes. I really think this is a good fantasy world and there were many parts that were awesome to read. I didn't know what to expect for this book and it caught me by surprise with it's twists of plots. This book is definitely a page turner and I wished I didn't need to put it down due to work and sleep. I'm looking forward to the second book as our heroine's new life and journey has just begun. I had much fun with this book as I did with Divergent.
