City of Bones

I just finished City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, book one in the Mortal Instruments series. I LOVED IT!!!! It was on my list and looked good but I didn't really know what to expect so I wasn't in any hurry to read it but I went to Louisiana for spring break and borrowed some books from a friend (City of Bones, City of Ashes, Poison Study, and Magic Study) and started with this one. Here is the summary from the back cover:

Their hidden world is about to be revealed...

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 her should call the police, but it's hard to explain a murder when the body disappears into thin air and the murderers ore invisible to everyone but Clary.

Equally startled by her ability to see then, 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...
