by Cassandra Clare - Fantasy

When 15-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. 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.
