City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1) by Cassandra ClareWhen 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. Its 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?
This is Clarys first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. Its also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jaces world with a vengeance when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know...
Welcome to the City of Bones
Posted on Monday, April 1st, by Russ Fischer. Nothing can stop the wave of YA adaptations coming to movie theaters in the next year or two — not even the relative disinterest in the movies. The film features Lily Collins as a young woman who learns that there is a shadow conflict just out of sight, with half-angel warriors battling demons right before the unseeing eyes of humanity. This trailer shows far more of the newly-done effects than did the teaser, and it also makes the film look rather like a revamped Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Have a look below. After the disappearance of her mother, Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures.
There's a war going on between good and evil, and only a special few have the power to defeat it. While the premise is certainly familiar to avid YA readers, a new trailer for "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," which debuted Monday April 1 on Apple , makes it all look so very cool. Based on the best-selling novel by author Cassandra Clare, "Mortal Instruments" follows Clary Fray, a teenager who discovers when her mom disappears that she and her family are not as average as she thought. Clary played by Lily Collins is part of the Shadowhunters, a half-angel, half-human race with the charge to destroy the demons that walk about the Earth in various forms. It's a lot to wrap her head around, but lucky for Clary, some really hot Shadowhunters take her under their wing. The trailer gives lots of screen time to Jace Wayland played by Jamie Campbell Bower , the gorgeous Shadowhunter who serves as Clary's tour guide into this hidden world.
Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray ( Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters.
