Barnes and Noble Summary:
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?
I have been meaning to pick this book up for a few years really. Ever since Jace won the Crush Tourney a few years back. I finally decided that it was time to pick up the series when I found out that they were making it into a movie. I have a thing about movies and books... if I see the movie I probably won't read the book but if i read the book I'll definitely see the movie. I can see why everyone loves this series so much. It's such an interesting premise and so fantastically written. I find that so many authors have a great idea and just kind of fail when it comes to the writing style. This is so totally not the case... I literally read this book in one sitting and didn't even realize it until I was finished. I'm really excited to see how the story translates to film!!
