Here's the blurb!
"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. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a 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...
Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end."
Then I didn't read it think about it for like 3-4 months...and I came back to it. and yeah...........what was I thinking? My only reaction could really be explained through this reaction picture.
Clary, the main protagonist, like many other "supposedly" strong main female protagonists, are actually horribly irritating and make all of the stupid choices. Not just some of the stupid choices, but ALL of them. Every. Single. One.
Clary made me want to rip pages at some points, and it was hair-rippingly annoying! She was poorly designed, and her flaws outweighed everything else. Even Jace annoyed me as a character, with being insurmountably arrogant and so up himself to hide the fact of his increasingly vulnerability, I just couldn't like him.
...I can't even handle it. I'm even contemplating ridding myself of these books :\
