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 ar. 15 year old Clary witnesses a crime at a trendy New York night club Interesting thing nobody but Clary can see both the victim and perpetrators As it turns out there is an entire invisible to regular people world and Clary is an unwitting important part of it City of Bones is one of those books that all my female friends and fellow readers simply love Jace mania all around Needless to say I had to jump on the bandwagon eventually and get me some Jace Who am I to deny myself a pleasure to fall for a fictional hot sarcastic and brooding guy Imagine my disappointment when I found out that this book was one big pile of hot mess Sorry ladies I said it it s badI had the hardest time sticking to the story and for uite some time I couldn t figure out why Then gradually I realized that there were several reasonsLet me start with the editing I don t really think this book was edited at all actually Errors were endless and visible to even my untrained eye wrong words noise instead on nose missing words in sentences strange mix of POVs the book is mostly told in 3rd person from Clary s POV but occasionally I saw both 3rd and 1st person narration in the same paragraph describing the same events then there was a page from Jace s POV and a chapter from Luke s Clary s father was called Jonathan in the beginning of the book but John in the end I can go on but these were the things that I would normally overlook if the story itself was good Unfortunately it wasn t and the errors stood outI didn t think that the story was cohesive it just didn t uite flow for me It read as of a series of events rather than a novel I thought there were some parts in the book that served no other purpose but to give our hero an opportunity to act knight like I am talking about the entire rat Simonvampires extravaganza This story line could have been edited out completely without any damage to the narrative IMO I couldn t uite relate to any of the characters either What made my friends sigh with adoration annoyed me I hated the sarcasm mainly because the jokes although funny felt often out of place plus all of the characters attempting to joke sounded exactly the same to me I didn t feel the difference in attitudes of Clary Simon and Jace If Clare had to make Jace a witty sarcastic type she should have made the wisecracks his exclusive trademark not everybody sThe story itself was so ridiculously predictable I do not normally see what is to come in the books but in COB I saw every revelation coming Clare just doesn t have a skill to lead to them subtly it s always in your face Valentine is alive revelation who in this book who was thought to be dead was actually dead a serious uestion your mother put a spell on you revelation the big fatherbrother revelation I could see them all and I am not the most astute reader out thereNow my biggest problem with this book I ve readseen it all before Clare borrows so liberally from Star Wars Harry Potter and Buffy it is simply impossible to overlook Valentine VoldemortDarth Vader combo JaceClary LukeDracoLeiaGinny if it is possible combo the Circle reversed Order of the PhoenixDeath Eaters combo the Clave Ministry of Magic Luke LupinSnape combo Hodge GilesWormtail combo I can continue but will stop here you get the picture Granted there is nothing absolutely original in paranormal genre but a skillful writer can re work an old theme and make it new fresh and uniue Whatever is original in COB is not uite thought through As an example let s take a stele After finishing this book I still have no idea what exactly it does do you only write runes with it how exactly do you use it in a battle why it can open some doors and not others it can heal but not everything it can make you be able to see through a wooden screen but is it because you write a special rune with it or you use it as a wand It seems to me stele is pretty much used as a deus ex machina convenient whenever a uick solution to a problem needed And what s with all the shadow folk There is just so much mashed up together fairies vampires werewolves pixies jinns You name any mythical creature it is in this book And what about magic I read about spells made by a warlock stele rune tricks curses where does it end The limits of magic possibilities were never defined Bottom line all these inconsistencies make for one unoriginal and messy imaginary world And this probably was the main reason why I couldn t connect with this book Finally I was a little surprised by some of Clare s creative choices I found both flirtations of at least 35 year old warlock he might be older his age was never mentioned with a gay teenage boy and reversed LeiaLuke extravaganza uite tacky if not disturbing Although I know how JaceClary family matter is resolved in the end I don t find possibly incestuous relationships appealingThis review might make it seem like COB is the worst book ever written I wouldn t say so after all I ve read Breaking Dawn and that book doesn t have any plot There were some nice JaceClary moments the greenhouse birthday party comes to mind But was COB the most blatantly unoriginal book I ve ever read Absolutely although I haven t read Eragon yet but I heard a lot about itIn all honesty I shouldn t give this book than 1 star but I will add a second one as a dedication to one Mrs Jace Wayland Would I recommend this book Sure many of my friends enjoyed it immensely Will I continue on with the series I don t think I will be able to convince myself to waste any of my time on being mad at a book I think I will just check out plot summaries on wiki and be done with the seriesPS I just

E 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 boyThis 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 a. Okay so I m far behind the curve on reading this but I very much enjoyed my introduction to the world of nephilim Shadowhunters and demons Clare constructed a vivid believable parallel world with great characters punchy dialogue and a winning mix of humor pathos and action I like her take on warlocks vampires and werewolves and of course I m a big fan or urban fantasy where these fantastic elements mix into the regular gritty city life of New York Clary Fray is a sympathetic protagonist though I was eually drawn to the supporting cast I especially like that the villains are believably three dimensional Even when you do not support them you understand what motivates them There is no easy black and white good and evil dichotomy I ll be interested in seeing where the series goes from here and what Clare does with her Victorian preuel series The Infernal Devices A Tangled Affair (The Pearl House you do not support them
