Book Review: Cidade dos Ossos (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare

Cidade dos Ossos 

 by Cassandra Clare

"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. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a 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... 

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end."

My Review: 

I have know about this series a long time ago and also i had this particular book in my TBR list a few months. One day i stumble upon it in a store and since it was with a promotion i decided to buy it but i never feel the desire to star reading it. 

Now i decided to read a certain book but i forgot it at my parents house and one of the few book i have with me is this one, so i started it and it was one of the best things i could have done. 

I really like this story and the general plot idea. Of course i have already heard about the shadowhunters and this world created by Clare but i do not know details about it. 
So the book start with a fast pace where you can see Claire (the main character) seeing a murder in a clube she goes too, after that night her world is completly changed. 

I like all the characters but i have to say my personnal favorite is Simon, and of course in the final of this volume i have a huge surprise that i could not have imagined.... but i do not know if i belive it or not!!!! I will have to read the next book of this series to confirm my suspect. 

If you are a fan of young adult fantasy i think you will enjoy this story, i personaly gave this book a rate of 3 out of 5*. If you have already read this book tell me in the comments bellow what do you think of it.
