This book is number one on my Top 20 booklist! I love it so much. Clary goes through such adversity emotionally and physically that it's just heartbreaking when that evil twist comes along. And Jace, that handsome, overprotective, bad boy will literally make you fall in love with him. The plot of this story unravels when Clary's mom is kidnapped and it turns out her whole life was hidden from her. She discovers that she is a shadow hunter and it just starts from there. This book will always hold a place in your heart for books, you will never put this book down and you will kill for the next sequels.
