City Of Ashes

Title: City Of Ashes Author: Cassandra Clare Publisher: Simon Pulse Number Of Pages: 453

Summary from back of book:
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go -- especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil -- and also her father.
To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings -- and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?
In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation.

Review: I finished City Of Ashes last night and I think it is as good or better than the first one. It had so many twists and turns if that makes sense. Now I can't wait for City Of Glass! I love this series so much and am kinda sad that City Of Glass is the last book in the series. I loved how in this series they included all kinds of mythology. Such as faeries and vampires. Overall this book was amazing.

I recommend this book if you like the first one because I bet you will like this book even better.
