City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2)

by Cassandra Clare
Rating; 5/5 stars
City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)
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.

Another wonderful installment to a wonderful series.

In City of Ashes we are faced with the trials of affection between Jace and Clary.  Valentine may have spilt the beans about Clary and Jace actually being brother and sister.   Valentine continues his insane escapades, breaks into the City of Bones, kills the Silent Brothers and retrieves the third mortal instrument-the soul sword. The Inquisitor is quick to blame Jace thus making him a suspect .
New characters introduced in this installment:
Maia: A girl around the same age of Clary and Simon who happens to be a member of Luke’s pack.
Raphael:Second in command in the local vampire gang.

I absolutely loved the developments between Jace and Clary and the new relationship between Alec and Magnus. Simon’s finally a full fledged part of the story and not just the “best friend who happens to follow the lead character around”. The writing and story was intriguing as always and there was an overwhelming feeling of loyalty, love and understanding throughout the novel.
