Clary is 15 when her mother vanishes and she is attacked by demons that she is not meant to see, and saved by teenage Shadowchasers who are meant to be invisible to normal humans. She must rely on Jace and his friends to help find her mother, keep Clary safe and unlock vital secrets from the past that are buried deep in her mind.
What bothers me the most in this book is the way that the author has decided to use incest as her romance.Even after the brother-sister reveal, it is made clear that the pair will continue a forbidden love story through the rest of the trilogy and I found this to be deplorable. Incest is not a sexy romantic forbidden love-it tears and destroys families and is not entertaining for two teenage characters to be used in such a storyline. The author must be one sick puppy to do this. A real trilogy of tripe!
