Some Reviews:

"City of Bones has everything: vampires, werewolves, faeries, true love, and stuff that blows up. What's more, Clare's characters are brilliant—she'd better not kill any of them off in the next two volumes!"
Justine Larbalestier, author of Magic or Madness

"This debut novel from a brilliant, smart new voice in Young Adult literature is a marvelous adventure, Full of fantastic twists and turns just when they're least expected. The complexity of the story, the threads from the past and present intertwined, is reminiscent of the Harry Potter series—and that's high praise! The captivating story told by the very talented Cassandra Clare in City of Bones is surely the start of a brilliant series—I can't wait for the next Mortal Instruments book. This fantasy is truly unforgettable."
