The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (Book Summary)

Clarissa Fray didn’t know anything about the existence of demons and other supernatural beings, until she met Jace Wayland, Isabel and Alec Lightwood. A day after meeting them, her mother disappeared or  was kidnapped because when she came home, she was attacked by a demon and ended up being saved by Jace and later on was talking to Madamme Dorothea. Using the portal in Dorothea’s apartment, they were directly sent to Luke’s (her mother’s friend) house where they also found Simon, her bestfriend, spying.

After she discovered things about Luke, they went back to the institute, together with Simon. Later on she discovered that her mother was a shadowhunter, a part of the circle which is under the role of Valentine. She also discovered that her memories have been blocked by Magnus Bane, who was ordered by her mother, Jocelyn, so she’d stay out of the otherworld. She then discovered that Jocelyn was also Valentine’s wife.

At that time, they were looking for a cup because they have to get it before Valentine could. Clary discovered where the cup is, which her mother hid on Dorothea’s tarot cards. When they had the cup, they were betrayed by their tutor, Hodge who gave the cup to Valentine and Clary ended up at the company of Luke and she discovered a few more things like: Luke is a werewolf; his name is Lucian; he was once Valentine’s friend; he ran away with Jocelyn; her father is really Valentine and that she has a brother named Jonathan, who died. As the leader of the wolf pack, they decided to attack Valentine to save Jace and her mother. When they reached his place, they saw her mother lying and chained, she also saw Jace, but a different Jace, different from the guy she fell in love with. When she met Valentine, he called Jace as “Jonathan” and told them that they are siblings.

After the fight, Valentine was transported, Simon and Clay became even closer, Clary’s mother is still in comma and Clary and Jace’s relationship as siblings turned out to be okay.

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
