A Dangerous World


Chloe Bzdyk, Staff Writer

What if you started seeing a whole world that no one else could see? What if that world was filled with faeries, vampires, werewolves, demons and demon killers? What would you think? Would you be scared? This is what was happening to fifteen-year-old Clary Fray. After she witnesses three people kill a demon, a scene that was completely invisible to her best friend, Simon, she was thrust into the world of the Shadowhunters. Shadowhunters hunt and kill demons; their job invisible to the mundanes, or mortal world.


After a demon ransacked their home and Clary found her mother missing, she became desperate to find her. As she spent more time with the Shadowhunters, she began to question everything that she knew about her life and her family’s past.


Clary’s journey to finding more about her family, her world, and herself was difficult and dangerous. Along the way, she met Jace, Isabelle, and Alec, Shadowhunters who took her into their home, somewhat grudgingly. Clary knew Alec didn’t like her, Isabelle didn’t necessarily want her there, and Jace… was harder to figure out.


This is the first book to The Mortal Instruments series. Join Clary on her adventure through the world of the Shadowhunters in The City of Bones.
