Book Review: City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2), By Cassandra Clare

(Plot Summary)
City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2)
By: Cassandra Clare
ISBN: 1416914307

Between her unconscious mother, the boy she loves, and the boy she's trying not to be in love with, Clary's world is already complicated. So when Jace is arrested and her villainous father reappears - things get launched into a new level of crazy.

City of Ashes brings more twists, turns and unexpected developments. The story is told from multiple points of view (Jace, Simon, Clary, Mia . . .) The characters are entertaining and the story is fast paced. Readers should just be aware that if they want to end on a satisfying note, they'll need to have City of Glass on hand. Think you know where this story is going? Think again.
