Story


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...

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film works better than it might have, thanks to well-conceived characters and agile direction by Harald Zwart..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..a ludicrous, borderline-nonsensical supernatural concoction with a slightly redeeming sense of its own silliness..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..The Mortal Instruments franchise is strictly for the initiated. They will no doubt love it. Everyone else will be flummoxed..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]
