Picking up right where City of Bones left off, City of Ashes continues with an action-packed adventure as Jace tries to prove his innocence. The forbidden love between Jace and his sister Clary is HOT, and even those of us who are absolutely not in favor of incense (like myself) find ourselves rooting for them to break all laws and be together.
Simon got on my nerves in this one--a little too much of Jacob from New Moon.
This book was even better than the first. It had me riveted. We see more of the werewolves and vampires and get to meet the fairies. But most importantly, we find out there is something special ability that Jace and Clary have--something that they gained through their common blood.
I give this book an B+.
A = Buy this book NOW B = Buy this when you can C = Check it out from the library D = Don't bother reading it F = Burn it
