[Ich lese gerade ...] City of Bones von Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments, Bd. 1)

Nachdem ich Die Auswahl gestern beendet habe (Rezi kommt in den nächsten Tagen!), habe ich heute noch einmal begonnen City of Bones von Cassandra Clare zu lesen.
Der vierte Band der Mortal Instruments-Reihe City of Fallen Angels hat mich sehr enttäuscht, von daher ist es eine richtige Wohltat nochmal da anzufangen, wo die Geschichte beginnt. Und obwohl ich das Buch schon kenne, reißt es mich wieder richtig mit.

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. . . .
