City of Bones by Cassandra Clare is the first book in The Mortal Instruments series, which follows Clary Fray as she is thrown in to the shadowhunter world. The shadowhunters are half angel, half human who deal with demons, warlocks, vampires and werewolves. This series is fantastic, Cassandra Clare is a wonderful writer!
Below is the cover art, description and my review. Beware there are spoilers!
Sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is an ordinary teenager, who likes hanging out in Brooklyn with her friends. But everything changes the night she witnesses a murder, committed by a group of teens armed with medieval weaponry. The murderous group are Shadowhunters, secret warriors dedicated to driving demons out of this dimension and back into their own. Drawn inexorably into a terrifying world, Clary slowly begins to learn the truth about her family – and the battle for the fate of the world.
