The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

Based on the bestselling series by Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones tells the story of an extraordinary teenager’s quest to save her mother. Clary Fray (Lily Collins) is living an ordinary life in New York City—until her world is rocked by a pair of dramatic revelations. First she discovers that she is a descendant of the Shadowhunters, a hidden force of half-human, half-angel warriors sworn to protect our world from demons. Then she discovers that her mother Joceyln (Lena Headey) has been kidnapped by a man feverishly searching for the Mortal Cup, a powerful artifact in Jocelyn’s possession. Clary realizes that she must take drastic action if she hopes to save her mother and connect with her heritage.

They introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, vampires, werewolves, and all manner of threatening monsters. Together they must fight their way through a maze of danger, greed, and betrayal if they hope to rescue Jocelyn and recover the Mortal Cup.
