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. Clary knows she should call the police, but it’s hard to explain a murder when the body disappears into thin air and the murderers are invisible to everyone but Clary.
Equally startled by her ability to see them, the murderers explain themselves as Shadowhunters: a secret tribe of warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. Within twenty-four hours, Clary’s mother disappears and Clary herself is almost killed by a grotesque 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….
That series tempt me for a long time, and I decide to read it because one of my friend like it so let’s go and I do not regret it.
The universe is like a melting pot of all the supernatural creatures that you can find. It is a complex world with all the positive and negative side of it. There are many explanations to understand this world, and sometimes it is complicated to figure out because you need to at 100% in your reading. You can see the world change a little as the story go on. Like in the mundane world, we can see the inequality between the creature, although they are all creatures. When we are reading the book the story line can loose us, but the writing is fluid, so we always finish finding our way back.
There are numerous characters, and they are all differents. Most of them are not insipid so there always someone who spice the story. Some of them are complex and can make you laugh and cry at the same time, and some are less complex but necessary for the story. From the beginning, you know who are on the right side and the wrong side even if sometimes the doubt is here.
Conclusion: this book is excellent, and every chapter make that we want to carry on reading.
