Teaser Tuesday (2)/Giveaway

Happy Teaser Tuesday :)
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random pageShare two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

So this week I'm sharing a special Teaser. Why special you ask? Well I just started reading City of Bones (a really good friend of mine (a.k.a. Luke) read my post about the TMI movie and was shocked by the fact that I haven't read the series yet so he lend me his copy of City of Bones, thanks a lot Buddy :D) so the catch is: I'm reading the German version so I'm gonna post the Teaser first in German and then I will translate it as good as I can :) ENJOY!

"" "Mom?" " Oh Clary. Gott sei Dank." In Clarys Kopf schrillten alle Alarmglocken. Ihre Mutter klang panisch. "Clary, hör mir jetzt gut zu..."Mom, es ist alles in Ordnung. Mir geht's gut. Ich bin auf dem Weg nach Hause..." "NEIN!" Nackte Angst sprach aus Jocelyns heiserer Stimme."Komm nicht nach Hause. Hast du verstanden, Clary? Komm auf keinen Fall nach Hause. Geh zu Simon und bleib bei ihm, bis ich dich..." Ein Hintergrundgeräusch unterbrach sie,irgendetwas Schweres fiel zu Boden, zersprang dort mit einem lauten Klirren...""

"" "Mom?" "Oh Clary. Thank God." The Alarm rings went off in Clary's head. Her mother sounded as if she was panicking. "Clary, now listen to me carefully..." "Mom, everything is alright. I'm fine. I'm on my way home..." "NO!" Jocelyn's hoarse voice was thick with fear. "Do not come home. Did you understand Clary? Not matter what don't come home. Go to Simon and stay with him until I get ..." A noise in the background interrupted her, something heavy fell on the floor,burst there with a loud clank...""
