CITY OF BONES release!

It's going to be a busy, busy Tuesday for the Class of 2k7 bunch! Today, we have books releasing for Kelly Bingham, Cassandra Clare and Rose Kent. (Be sure to see my previous entries on Kelly's and Rose's books.)

Congratulations and a huge Woo-Hoo to Cassandra Clare for the April 10th release of her young adult novel CITY OF BONES!

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. . . .

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

"Funny, dark, and sexy. One of my favorite books."

-- Holly Black

"City of Bones has everything: vampires, werewolves, faeries, true love, and stuff that blows up. What's more, Clare's characters are brilliant -- she better not kill any of them off in the next two volumes!"

-- Justine Larbalestier, author of Magic or Madness

Congratulations, Cassandra!  Best of luck with this novel and the sequels, City of Ashes and City of Glass that will be out in April 2008 and April 2009! advanced web statistics
