City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
In City of Bones, the first book in the Mortal Instruments series, 15-year-old Clary Fray was headed into the club in New York City. She hardly expects to run into a guy who murders people, especially since he looks to be her age. He’s covered in strange tattoos and has odd weapons with him. He’s walking alongside two other teenagers who also have these traits. She witnesses a boy being murdered, but how come she’s the only one to see it? Who are these people? Was that even a boy? Through this series you will see Clary grow, meet new people, and find out the unthinkable.
