Based on Cassandra Clare's best-selling book series, City of Bones casts Collins as Clary Fray, a seemingly ordinary teenager who discovers that she is part of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret force of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), she must embrace her fate and battle supernatural forces in a dangerous alternate New York City called Downworld.
