Don’t miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture in theaters August 2013.

The New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments continues—and so do the thrills and danger for Jace, Clary, and Simon.

What price is too high to pay, even for love? When Jace and Clary meet again, Clary is horrified to discover that the demon Lilith’s magic has bound her beloved Jace together with her evil brother Sebastian, and that Jace has become a servant of evil. The Clave is out to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. As Alec, Magnus, Simon, and Isabelle wheedle and bargain with Seelies, demons, and the merciless Iron Sisters to try to save Jace, Clary plays a dangerous game of her own. The price of losing is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him? Or is he truly lost?

Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.

Please remove this from you list. It is quite possibly some of the worst writing I've ever encountered. Here's a gem, never to be forgotten: "He shrugged perceptibly." Honestly, it negates your other reviews to have this drivel on the list. Some neat ideas here, to be sure, but the execution is horrid, painful, and actual work to try to get through. I had to stop before brain cells burst en masse...

It's more Young adult than urban fantasy

Young adult is a category, not a genre. A book can be YA and UF, as this one is. It's one of the strongest examples of a YA UF out there.
