This is the second book in the series The Mortal Instruments, titled City of Ashes.
“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.”
That Jace and Clary’s relationship was from bad to worse in this book, it really pissed me off, than Clary using Simon to “move on” from Jace… which is obviously impossible… made even angrier, cuz Simon is super loyal and sweet with Clary and she uses him.
On this installment I love the kiss the Seele Queen force to Jace and Clary to make, I liked that Simon became a vampire, at the beginning of the book I supposed that, o it didn’t surprise me so much. Which it totally that a surprise gasps from me was Clary’s power, first releasing Jace and then destroying the ship of her father that was *awesome*, that never crossed my mind.
I don’t remember if I put it an earlier post but you can read Cassandra Clare the author of the series, she has a blog, you can even follow her on twitter, but her account is not verified, i’m pretty sure is her, she even answer the replies and the #FF’s too. Also I almost forgot here the link for the book.
