Read in January, 2011

This is the first of a trilogy including City of Bones, City of Ashes and City of Glass. It's a very good read. I liked the tale enough to put the second and third of the series on my TBR list. This is the story of an unusual young woman, Clarissa Fray, her mother, Jocelyn, an artist who she discovers has a life she never dreamed she had, her brother, Jonathan, known as Jace, and her father who wishes to change the world for his own purposes and needs. There are many surprises in this novel as people uncover secrets and discover who they really are. Her father is evil. Once dedicated to destroying demons he has left that vocation to recreate a different world no matter who he hurts, including his wife, Clary's mother, Jocelyn. It's an outstanding beginning to a fine fantasy series.
