The Hero's Journey
by Jocelyn Sauze

City of Bones
Clary finds out some shocking truths when Valentine tells her that :
She has a brother: Jace
Valentine is her father

Valentine disappears through the portal into Idris
Status Quo
Clary Fray, age 15:
lives in Manhattan
lives with her mom
has a friend named 'simon'
Call To Adventure
Two Major Events that tell Clary something is up
'Murder' at club
Demon at her house
tell Clary
about themselves
about her mother
about Valentine
The Hotel Dumort
The Mortal Cup
Clary gets whisked into an adventure full of shadowhunters and mythical creatures, without even getting a chance to pack!
Werewolf's tale
Clary's mom
Treasure (not)
this is not applicable here, as Clary gains nothing but shocking painful knowledge. Perhaps 'New Life' would be more treasure-like in Clary's Case
Clary and the rest return to Manhattan. It feels weird to be back in the normal world - even though she's been in Manhattan the whole time!

New Life
Clary is now a Shadowhunter
She can see things like faeries, vampires and warlocks
Jocelyn is in the hospital
Alec is healed
Valentine is in Idris (With the Mortal Cup :( )
Clary is now a shadowhunter!
so everything is sort of hunky dory...for now
"Everything Jocelyn Fray drew, painted or sketched was beautiful, and seemingly effortless" pg 18
"Do you see those two guys over there by that door?[...]there are two of them. They were following that guy with the
one pulled a knife!’” pg 7
“ ‘Valentine broke the greatest Law of all – he took up arms against his fellow Shadowhunters and slew them."
‘Clary coughed. “This is the institute, right?”
“Yes. You’re in the infirmary" '
Clary goes through three main Trials which help her become more of a shadowhunter and less of a regular person:
‘”My mother painted the Mortal cup into Madame Dorothea’s tarot deck.’”
‘ “Did my mother know?”
“Know what?”
“That you’re a werewolf.”
“Yes. She’s known since it happened.”’
This situation is justified as the Crisis because Clary is emotionally dead after Valentine reveals these facts.
‘“Jocelyn is your mother, Jonathan. And Clary – Clary is your sister.”’ Pg 441
'the last thing Clary heard before the Portal dissolved into a deluge of ragged shards was Valentine’s derisive laughter.’ Pg 464
'After so many days living by torchlight, gaslight and eerie witchlight, the fluorescent lighting made things look sallow and unnatural.'
There was the emerald square of Central Park, where the faerie courts met on mid-summer evenings, there were the lights of the clubs and bars downtown, where the vampires danced the nights away at Pandemonium, there the alleys of Chinatown down which the werewolves slunk at night, their coats reflecting the city’s lights.
some things have been resolved, some remain unresolved.
“I’m fine,” Alec said. “ I wont even need these [crutches] in a few days.”
Clary is too shocked to fight, and the werewolf steps in .
This book follows the hero's journey very well. An ordinary girl is transformed into the demon hunter that she is truly when her life takes a mysterious turn.
I thought I could live in your world
As years all went by
With all the voices I've heard
Something has died
And when you're in need of someone
My heart won't deny you
So many seem so lonely
With no one left to cry to baby

And don't you cry tonight
And don't you cry tonight
And don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
Don't Cry (alt. lyrics)
