Simon and the bouncer arrived and were confused on why Clary was in the storeroom by herself. Simon suggested that they go home and they had enough of the club. From that night on strange things were happening to Clary……

This is the 1st book of out of 6, I’m currently reading book 4. I haven’t been this hooked on a series in a long time. There is action, mystery, suspense, and romance all in this book. There are werewolves, vampires, good guys and bad guys. I love how the author can make you annoyed with a character then in a few chapters make you love them. I could not put this book down. Cassandra Clare creates a world that makes you escape the real one even if it’s only for 20 minutes at a time.

I’m giving this book a 5 star rating, I feel like guys will also enjoy reading this series as well.
