A fifteen-year-old Clary Fray goes to the New York City’s pandemonium club only to witness a murder committed by three teenagers in tattoos and with bizarre weapons. It’s hard to report such a murder to authorities because the body disappeared into thin air without a trace. Within a day, Clary is dragged into the world of Jace, a shadow hunter she had encountered for the first time. Clary’s mother is captured and she herself attacked by demons. Why would she be of concern to demons anyway? How did she get to know this sight? The shadow hunters are curious themselves.

Some illusions in the novel can be traced to Holly Black, a close friend of Clare. Though there are those who think that the novel was too predictive, it is a compelling and addictive story and anybody who reads it will testify to that.
