The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Clary Fray and Simon Lewis are at a club where Clary witnesses a murder by a group of teens. She is shocked that Simon and the club’s security guard cannot see the killer—a boy called Jace, who claims that the boy he murdered was a demon. Jace was joined by her adoptive sister Isabelle and adopted brother Alec. The next day, Jace offers to take Clary to meet his tutor, but before she can do so, she receives a distressing phone call from her mother. She returns home to find her mother missing, the apartment trashed, and a monstrous creature, a Ravener demon, lying in wait for her. She defeats the creature by shoving Jace’s Sensor down its throat, but is injured in the process, and Jace takes her to his home. His home is called “The Institute”, an old gothic cathedral in New York that humans, or mundanes, can’t see, because it is concealed magically by glamour. Here, she recuperates. She also meets Hodge Starkweather, Jace’s tutor, as well as his adoptive-siblings Isabelle and Alec Lightwood.
