I am continuing with my reviews and re-read of The Mortal Instruments in anticipation for the release for Queen of Air and Darkness. Today we are continuing with the review of part two of The Mortal Instruments and this is City of Ashes.
Clary wants her life to go back to normal, but the new normal involves hunting demons and coping with the fact that your mother is in a magically induced coma, and your Sight is now working normally so you can see the supernatural world. Also there is the factor of Jace who is not really of much help.
To further complicate things – someone is murdering Downworlder children in New York and the main suspect is Valentine, but what is he trying to achieve?
What I liked about this book: Oof, the tension between Clary and Jace and the messiness! I’ve reread this book so many times now and it’s still so hilarious to watch them struggle (oops). My heart breaks every time when I read the Inquistor-Jace storyline and I really just want to give Jace a hug. He’s earned it. I love that it’s typical YA and that both Jace and Clary act their own age with the impulsivity and banters. There is a lot of sass within the series which I truly adore
What I didn’t like about this book: V A L E N T I N E. Also some of the moments between Jace and Clary are y i k e s.
A quote: “I’ve got a stele we can use. Who wants to do me?”
“A regrettable choice of words,” muttered Magnus.”
My rating: 5/5 stars
Who is your favorite of the main six? (Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, Alec and Magnus)
