City of Bones, Cassandra Clare

A riveting book for all teen readers! Set in modern day New York, Clare drags out every one of New Yorks secrets, from Shadow Hunter hating Downworlders including everyone's favourite vampires and werewolves to the creepy Silent Brothers and hard partying Warlock who knows more than he's letting on.

Clary thoguht she was just a slightly geeky 15 yr old girl, but when her mother goes missing and Clary returns to a demented croccodile demon stalking her destroyed house, Clary is forced into taking things into her own hands. In this fast paced teen novel Clary faces sexy tattoed boys, jealous girls, and dangerous weapons in the quest to find her imprisioned mother, while still keeping her friendships intact.
"Cassie's writing makes my toes curl with envy. She is the rare writer who can write fast-paced dramatic fantasy with gorgeous language and memorable characters that you grow to love and worry about, as well as really funny bits that will make you honestly laugh and remember them and repeat them to your friends. It is rare to find someone who can do any one of those things well; to find someone who can do them all is just dangerous."
Holly Black, author of Tithe and Valiant
