Totally YA Tuesday
So, this trailer has to be on practically every YA blog out there today, no? I'm talking about Trailer #2 for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. But, I had to post.
If you've never read this book, then you haven't read as much YA as you think. Premise of novel is spectacular, as is Trailer #1 and Trailer #2. I love tough, weapon-wielding angels!
Summary for Movie by Sony:
"Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the worldwide best-selling book series."

Equally startled by her ability to see them, the murderers explain themselves as Shadowhunters: a secret tribe of warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. Within twenty-four hours, Clary's mother disappears and Clary herself is almost killed by a grotesque 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..."
