City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Time period: Contemporary
Genre: YA Fiction, Fantasy, Demons, Vampires, Werewolves

When Clary is out clubbing with her best friend, Simon, she witnesses a murder--three tattooed teens stab another kid. But when she tries to tell anyone about it, there is no body, no blood, and no one else can see the killers. Turns out, they are as surprised that she can see them and she is that no one else can. They are Darkhunters--demon killers--and they just dispatched a demon.

When Clary's mom disappears, secrets are slowly revealed about Clary and her past. In order to save her mom, Clary enlists Jace and the others to help her find the Mortal Cup, one of three powerful gifts used by the Angel to create the Darkhunters. But can they find it before the evil renegade Darkhunter Valentine does?
