Teaser Tuesday: City of Bones

I'm doing it. I'm doing a meme. *woo-hoo*
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share 2 "teaser"sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser"
4. Please avoid spoilers
I'm reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare presently, and feel like I'm the last person on the planet to pick it up.  But, if you -- like me -- haven't read this book yet, you ought to consider picking it up.  It's very entertaining so far.

Here's my two-line (oops, I mean four-line, I couldn't help myself) teaser from the novel - page 94:

With the tip of the stele, he traced a line connecting the two arms of the star. When he lowered his hand, the mark was shining as if it had been etched with phosphorescent ink.  As Clary watched, it sank into his skin, like a weighted object sinking into water. It left behind a ghostly reminder: a pale, thin scar, almost invisible.

Beautiful imagery, huh?

Awesome! I read this book quite a while ago, but I hadn't remembered this line. I think I'll do a teaser tuesday for the book I'm reading too.
