City of Bones is a gritty fantasy aimed at young adults, but has enough depth to entertain 'old' adults too. The book combines the currently popular demons/fairies/vampire combination with a traditional 'coming of age story' where the heroine (Clary Fray) really does have to discover who she and her family really are, and deal with all the secrets and problems this throws up. I loved this book, and its sequel 'City of Ashes', and I'm waiting very impatiently for the final volume which comes out in 2009. A definite recommendation for any teens with an interest in fantasy.Read moreLess
