City of Bones
The City of Bones is a great book, one with adventures at every turn, with masterful characters created by author Cassandra Clare. With thrilling obstacles everywhere, this is a book that I would very stubbornly refuse to put down.
Clary Fray has just uncovered a shock that will stay with her for the rest of her life. When she goes to a club with her friend, Simon, she expects some things- rowdy teenagers aren’t a big shock to anyone. What she certainty does not expect is to witness a murder, committed by the hands of three teenagers covered in strange markings. Clary’s life starts taking back flips and somersaults as she is plunged into a world of demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves, and three mysterious teenagers, otherwise known as Shadowhunters, warriors who have one purpose; to rid the mortal world of demons.
I really feel like I connected to the book when I learned about Clary’s passion for drawing. I share the same hobby, and I laughed when I read about Clary trying to draw a person; however, his arm turned out to look more like an eggplant. My drawings don’t always go as planned, and I know how hard it can be to capture a picture completely. Also, when Alec, a Shadowhunter, told Clary that her brother Jace couldn’t draw a straight line, I connected again. I thought of my own brother, whose artistic ability is basically limited to stick people and lollipop trees.
I would definitely recommend this book, mostly for fans of adventure and supernatural books, but also for anyone, because, to get strait to the point, it is just plain fun to read. There are parts that will make you laugh, and others that will make you jump out of your seat in fright.
My rating of this book would be 5 out of 5 stars, for a thrilling, quick-paced adventure. Obviously, I would read the next books in the series, for I have, as a matter of fact, already bought them!
