Series: The Mortal Instruments ⋯ Book 2
Author: Cassandra Clare
Summary: 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.
Review: SPOILER if you haven't read City of Bones.
This is my least favorite book in the series, but only because Jace and Clary are "brother and sister" throughout the book. I still loved the book, though. Cassandra Clare is one of my favorite authors and she didn't disappoint with City of Ashes.
