About The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
The latest young adult novel adaptation hoping to replicate the success of Twilight and The Hunger Games. It features all the right teenager-baiting hallmarks: silly names, dangerous-yet-sexy male characters and an unnecessarily complicated supernatural world. Clary Fray (Lily Collins) is an ordinary teenager living in New York – or so she thinks. When she meets the ethereal-looking Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower) she realises that she has access to a strange world that others cannot even see. Her mother (Lena Headey) is kidnapped and Clary learns that she comes from a line of demon-killers destined to be involved in the struggle between good and evil. She sets out to find the man responsible for taking her mother with the help of Jace and her loyal best friend Simon (Robert Sheehan).
