"It tends to make humans a little crazy. One minute you're munching a faerie plum, the next minute you're running naked down Madison Avenue with antlers on your head. Not," he added hastily, "that this has ever happened to me."
---Clary is just a normal 15-year-old girl. Well, until the day she sees a murder. A murder committed by three teenagers who have strange tattoos on their body, in the Pandemonium Club. And Clary doesn't even try to warn the police, when there is no body, how will you convince people that there was a murder? From that day, Clary's journey starts. A journey toward discovering the truth about herself, her abilities, and her family.
Their eyes were vacant as they hurled themselves at the wolves, and the wolves met them head-on, claws tearing, teeth gouging and rending.
---I won't give more away, IF you have not already read The Mortal Instruments. Which I am pretty sure you have. The story starts with a bang A murder. Then a kidnapping. It's all action, magic, secrets, and runes. This book will not bore you. I started flipping pages frantically (digital pages, of course).
This book is pure creativeness. And I think Cassandra Clare knew exactly where to write this book. The setting is perfect. The pace if flawless. The characters are love-able and multi-layered. But I have to say that between Jace and Simon, the two love interests, I will definitley choose Simon. Loyal, adorable, and in a band! I can't wait to read the second book.
Their lives burned as brightly as candle flames-and were as easy to snuff out.
