City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

City of Ashes (Mortal Instruments, #2) City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
City of Ashes is the second book in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I was itching to start this one right away after finishing the first book, City of Bones.

I really can't say much about this book without giving a lot of way so this will be a very brief review. I LOVED this book. Don't get me wrong, the first book was good, but this one was AWESOME! There was a lot more action and the reader sees more of Valentine in this book. This book also goes into more detail about the Clave and it's rules.

My least favorite character, who I grew to love a little towards the end of the book is the Inquisitor. My favorite character is Simon. I just love the story line of his life. It's so bittersweet!

The one thing I despised about this book is the ending. Thank goodness I have City of Glass sitting next to me so I won't have to wait long for some answers!!!
