A thrilling urban fantasy of vampires, warlocks and shapeshifters that fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will love to get their teeth into.Clary is your typical girl next door character that everyone wants to like and with whom young teenage girls in particular will instantly relate. Until her mother's disappearance life is very ordinary and normal but then everything changes. The author's descriptions of an alternate, parallel world are so cleverly drawn that you feel right there within the story. We haven't read such a brilliant mixture of razor-sharp wit and humour and spine tingling fear but above all a terrific page-turning read that will have you saying just one more page, then one more chapter and suddenly you've finished it, for quite a while.

If you like Cassandra Clare you might also like to read books by Jos, Jos and Amanda Hocking .
