'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' Trailer Emerges From the Shadows

There is a world hidden within our own, unseen by Mundane eyes. But come Aug. 23, 2013, all will be revealed when the supernatural romance "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" hits theaters.

Based on the best-selling young-adult novel by Cassandra Clare, "City of Bones" follows seemingly average teen Clary Fray (played by Lily Collins), whom upon her mother's disappearance is plunged into the secret universe of the Shadowhunters — a half-human, half-angel race tasked with protecting the world from dangerous demons.

Set to John Murphy's epic "Kaneda's Death, Pt. 1," MTV's exclusive first look hurdles through Clary's introduction to this brave new world and her fight to find her mother, as vampires, demons and all manner of frightening foes stand in her way.
