“Bones” follows Clary Fray, a teenage girl living in New York City who goes to a club called the Pandemonium one evening and glimpses a group of people killing someone in the middle of the crowded room. Only Clary is able to see the murderers, which include a boy named Jace, and she soon discovers that the group are all Shadowhunters, people who work to defeat evil supernatural creatures that normal people can’t see.
The series currently consists of five books, with a sixth due next March, and the movie adaptation of the first novel stars “Mirror Mirror” actress Lily Collins as Clary and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One” actor Jamie Campbell-Bower as Jace.
“Everything you’ve heard about monsters, about nightmares, legends whispered around campfires, all the stories are true,” Harris says.
The next scene shows Clary screaming as she sees Jace and others attacking someone in the Pandemonium Club. Her best friend, Simon (Robert Sheehan), asks her what’s going on, having seen nothing.
Jace tells Clary that she can see him because she’s not a “mundane,” someone from the human world with no powers.
“If I’m not human, then what am I?” she demands.
Quick glimpses show Jace fighting demons and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as Valentine Morgenstern, a Shadowhunter who is also the series’ villain.
