City of Bones by Cassandra Clare



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...

Harga buku ini mahal, hampir mencapai seratus ribu buat terjemahannya yang diterbitin sama Ufuk Press. Makanya, pas ada diskon, saya langsung beli buku ini dengan harga Cuma empat puluh ribu aja.
Buku yang lumayan tebel, ceritanya tentang dunia fantasi dimana makhluk-makhluk mistis hidup di dunia manusia. Untuk menjaga supaya dunia manusia nggak diganggu sama makhluk mistis yang ‘nakal’, ada istilah Pemburu Bayangan.
Langsung ke review aja ya.. Jujur, saya nggak tau kenapa buku ini jadi salah satu buku bestseller dan idola pembaca fantasi. Petualangannya sih lumayan ya..tapi saya nggak suka aja sama tokoh utamanya. I mean you, Clary and Jace. Dan terlebih lagi, yang bikin saya jengah itu ternyata kisah cintanya berakhir pada kesimpulan bahwa Clary dan Jace itu kakak-beradik. Euh.
Saya belum baca seri lengkapnya sih, tapi sejauh ini (membaca 2 bukunya) membuat saya ogah-ogahan melanjutkan membaca seri TMI ini. Menurut saya ya seru aja, tapi nggak berkesan. Saya jauh lebih suka sama cerita The Infernal Devices, meskipun keduanya berlatar sama, karakter TID lebih loveable dibandingkan TMI.
