Summary:

Don’t miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, now a major motion picture. Discover this first installment of the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and “prepare to be hooked” (Entertainment Weekly).

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?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s 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 Jace’s 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...

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes listeners on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

    This book would have probably been ok. The narrators voice and delivery was terrible. Annoying,monotone and ditzy.

    I liked the book. Had a food amount of action. It was easy to follow. Narrator was excellent. Liked the character development. I liked the preview to the next book in the series. That one looks interesting.

    Really love this book. The series and movie both just don’t do it justice. It’s almost too magical to be reinacted. I love a book that can take my mind places it’s never been. Excited to read the rest of the series!

    I love love love The Mortal Instruments series. I love that it has a little of the romance but also a little action. I can appreciate that Cassandra gives the characters relatable personalities as well! I think the narrator did an pretty good job as well, her voice was a little irritating at times but over all pretty well done.

    love it! Great Narration. I really enjoyed her portrayal of each character.

  • Sierra Behrens

    Overall it was ok. The narrators British accent is terrible. She switches in between the characters being British and American. If you look past it it's not so bad but I wish she would've just pick one nationality.

    I love this book. I've read it twice and listened to it once. The narrator was awesome. I definitely recommend it. :)

    It was funny listening to a female do Jace's voice, but she did really great.
