City of Ashes - Cassandra Clare

Mortal Instruments - Book 2

Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go -- especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil -- and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings -- and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

This was way better than I expected. I loved it! I love sequels, you're already into the story from the beginning so its more interesting. You already know everyone, even the author's writing so that's important. Once I got into it I loved the whole thing. The action was way better, and I loved the changing scene thing she does during the action. I have to say this, the ending of the last book was crushing, but the ending in this one was devastating, heartbreaking! I'm glad I don't have to wait to read the next one.. If she keeps improving it will only get much better.

The story was great, the fantasy part was impeccable -my imagination has no repair after this- I loved her writing this time, and also -as City of Bones- has an awesome cover. The characters were absolutely amazing, I am in love with Jace and I have to say I keep loving more Alec's character. This is by far one -of the ever growing collection- of my favorite books.
