A murderer is loose in New York City ...
... and the victims are Downworlder children. Clary Fray and her fellow Shadowhunters have a strong suspicion that Valentine, Clary's father, may be behind the killings. But if he is the murderer, then what's his true motive? To make matters worse, the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, has been stolen, and the mysterious Inquisitor has arrived to investigate, with his eyes vigilantly targeted on Clary's brother, Jace.
Clary will need to face some terrifying demons and even more terrifying family decisions. No one said that the life of a Shadowhunter would be easy
This book was really good. It was a great second book to the Mortal Instruments series. I would recommend this book to anyone I meet. If you read City of Bones and liked it you will love City of Ashes.
If you haven't the Mortal Instrument series it's about this demon hunters called Shadowhunters who go through many things from kicking demon butt to finding out that the person they like is actually their sibling . This book continues on the story between Valentine, Clary, and Jace. The story also introduces some new stories and elements. The book City of Ashes also has other characters like werewolves and vampires. The book is also not just a thriller it has a dash of romance here and there. The book City of Ashes has a little bit of everything combined into one BIG book of AWESOME!!!!!
I would recommend this book to the lovers of books with demons or any underworld-ish creature of the night. I give this book a 5/5 overall its that awesome. So go pick up this really good 2nd installment of the Mortal Instrument Series.
