City of Bones Summary
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, part of an ancient organization dedicated to ridding the world of demons? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean giving up her best friend, Simon. And that’s something she just can’t do.
When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrust into the world of demon hunting. Clary and Simon find themselves in the City of Bones, the secret location of the Shadowhunters. They need to find the Mortal Cup, a powerful artifact that will help Clary save her mother and stop Valentine, a ruthless villain who wants to destroy all Shadowhunters.
With the help of the mysterious Jace and other Shadowhunters, Clary begins a journey to find the Mortal Cup and save her mother. But as she gets closer to finding the Cup, she also uncovers some devastating secrets that could destroy everything she loves.
