The next day Clary overhears her mother and her mothers friend Luke having a strange conversation. Clary’s mother tells her that they are going to move away for the summer, which upsets Clary. She leaves the house in anger with Simon, and together they go to a coffee shop.
When Clary once again sees Jace outside the coffee shop she runs after him, leaving Simon all alone. She confronts him and Jace tells her he is something called a shadowhunter, who hunts down and kill demons.
When Clary’s mother gets kidnapped, Clary is dragged into a whole new world full of shadowhunters, demons and downworlders (half human, half demons). What will she discover, and what secrets will be uncovered?
If you’re a fan of low fantasy, supernatural creatures in a non-fictional world and love the idea of a teenage girl dragged into a mysterious world this is the right book for you. It’s really easy to get stuck in and it’s hard to put it down. Even though I read it in English I didn’t feel like it was a problem ’cause the language was simple to understand. So if you think it’s hard to read in English this is a perfect book for you. The book contains a lot of plot twits, making you gasp in surprise.
Personally I really loved this book. I can’t wait to read the sequel.
