My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Cassandra Clare has done it again. In City of Ashes, the second part to her ever-growing Mortal Instruments series, Clary, Jace, Izzy, Alec, Luke and Magnus are back to their magic- and drama-filled life in New York City. This time, there is a murderer on the loose who seems to be out to get Downworlders. If that wasn't bad enough, Jace is under investigation thanks to the events in City of Bones and the Inquistor sent from the Clave is not messing around.
I admit that this book was very hard to put down. Clare has an amazing ability to keep you on the edge of your seat with major events happening on almost every other page. Her writing is brilliant and she definitely knows how to keep a reader drawn in.
It seemed like a major portion of this book was focused on the definition of a family.
All in all, I loved this book and can't wait to get into City of Glass. Just like in City of Bones, Clare left the me dying to know what is next.
