City of bones
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. Clary knows she should call the police, but it’s hard to explain a murder when the body disappears into thin air and the murderers are invisible to everyone but Clary.
Equally startled by her ability to see them, the murderers explain themselves as Shadowhunters: a secret tribe of warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. Within twenty-four hours, Clary’s mother disappears and Clary herself is almost killed by a grotesque demon.
But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….

City of Ashes
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who’s becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn’t ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary’s only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.
To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?
In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City’s Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation.

City of Glass
To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters — never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and her best friend, Simon, has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.
As Clary uncovers more about her family’s past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he’s willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City — whatever the cost?
Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the final installment of the New York Times bestselling The Mortal Instruments.

Fifteen-year-old red-headed troublemaker, artist, and anime enthusiast. Her best (and only real) friend is a boy; her mother is a forgetful artist, and her playground is the streets and nightclubs of Manhattan. Until one night she sees a group of teenagers — who no one else can see — kill a boy. Who turns out to not really have been a boy at all…
Fighting, hunting, and killing demons are the things Jace is good ad. Though the jagged scars and black runic Marks on his body are a badge of honor as far as he’s concerned, he keeps a lot to himself. Like the fact that his parents were murdered by Valentine’s servants in front of him when he was ten years old. There are a lot of things Jace doesn’t talk about — until he meets Clary, a mundane girl who can see him, maybe better than he can see himself. The connection that binds them will force Jace to confront the black secrets of a past he never wanted to remember…
Simon Lewis likes his life. He lives in a cool neighborhood in Brooklyn, plays drums in a band whose name changes every day, and hides a not-so-secret crush on his best friend. He’s planning to tell her about it — some day. Some day comes all too quickly when Clary’s mother disappears, sucking them both into the secret world of the Shadowhunters, plunging them into mortal danger, and, even more annoyingly, throwing them into the path of Jace, the blond Shadowhunter who seems to hold an irresistible fascination for Clary…
The daughter of an ancient Shadowhunting family, Isabelle glitters like the silver-gold whip she uses to snare marauding demons. She’s smart, she’s deadly, she’s beautiful, and she doesn’t seem to like Clary much — a feeling that turns mutual once Isabelle takes a surprising interest in Simon…
Isabelle’s brother and the eldest of the Lightwood children, Alec is a reluctant Shadowhunter who would rather read about demons than fight them. His fierce devotion to his adoptive brother, Jace, hides a secret Alec would die to protect.
Magnus is the High Warlock of Brooklyn. He’s three hundred years old, lives in a loft in Williamsburg, and likes to throw parties. Lots and lots of parties. He also likes to wear sequins, rainbow-colored leather pants, and cover himself with glitter. Lots and lots of glitter. Magnus seems like an unlikely savior, but when Clary finds his signature written inside her mind, she realizes he may hold the key to the mystery of her mother’s whereabouts.
