Clary Fray (15 yo) is out for a night of dancing at the Pandemonium Club, but what she finds is murder.  A murder done by 3 teens with strange tattoos.  A murder where the body vanishes without a trace of blood. 

The teens are the Shadowhunters.  Warriors dedicated to tracking down demons on earth.  And Clary would probably be forgotten in all this except that suddenly, and inexplicably, her mother disappears and Clary is attacked by a demon. 
So that within a few hours Clary is pulled out of her world into that of a handsome Shadowhunter named Jace.
