City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare - 507 pages
The Mortal Instruments - book 1

Clary is shocked to see three teens kill someone at Pandemonium Club in New York City.  The next night her world is turned further upside down when she goes home to find her mother gone and a demon waiting for her.  One of the teens from the previous night -- Jace -- rescues her and brings her to the Institute.  It is a place for Shadowhunters -- those who fight demons, vampires, werewolves and other creatures.  Turns out her mother stole a powerful Mortal Instrument - the Mortal Cup - and Clary must find it to find her mother.

I read this book after seeing the movie.  While the movie was okay, the book includes a whole lot more than the book did.  I was confused from the book as to why Clary would like Jace.  He spent his whole time being rude and arrogant towards her.  At least in the movie he had a few redeeming qualities.  I did enjoy the book and look forward to reading more books in the series.
