Review by Alex on 30th June, 2012
4 stars "Captivating."

City of Ashes is the much anticipated sequel to City of Bones. I was so excited to get this book in the mail.

Re-entering the world of the Shadowhunters was thrilling. After the last books huge plot twist, I couldn't wait to see where it was headed! Jace and Clary struggle trying to come to grips with being brother and sister.
We meet Alec and Izzy's parents who have strong opinions with what's happening in their world. Their mother doesn't trust Jace, so that's another thing he has to deal with since they are his only family he really has. And then when he tries to help everyone, the Clave and his family don't even believe him.

Basically the book makes me quite sad for Jace. However it was a great link from the first book to the third! Although I think the First book and Third were better, this was captivating and brilliant. The world of the shadowhunters is beautiful.

After reading CITY OF ASHES we know a little more about Alec, get to know Magnus better, discover some special abilities Clary and Jace possess, and get a hint that there might be more to Jace’s lineage than we already thought. Cassandra Clare has the ability to create the kind of emotional tension that I haven’t found since Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight. You’ll be sorry when you get to the last page and be tempted to turn back to page one and start the adventure all over again.

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.
