site Edition Verified download. It continues the fantastic world building that Cassie started in City of Bones.

You delve further into the Shadow World and the politics of the Clave, although it still takes place solely in New York City. I personally have not experienced that lack of engagement, but I appreciate the world building and that may cause me to approach the story from a different perspective.

There is a particular scene in which the setting is described so vividly that you can easily imagine the location building around you in your mind.

Immersive world building is always very important to me in books, especially fantasy series, so I cannot recommend this series enough. Although it is the earliest of her writing, you cannot miss out on all of the details she provides about the world. You go on the journey with Clary as you both learn about Downworlders, the Clave, and demons.

City of Ashes further develops the relationships and connections between the characters.

As I re-read interactions and laugh at witty lines, I fall in love with the characters all over again. I remember what it is that made me care for them in the first place, not just their strengths but their vulnerabilities.

I was surprised by how much I loved "City of Bones. That combined with some interesting characters made the previous book a joy to read. I went into the book's sequel, "City of Ashes," expecting much of the same. Sadly, while the story is more unique, the rest of the book demonstrates a decline in quality.

Spoilers follow "City of Ashes" takes place a week or so after the events of "City of Bones. When the bodies of murdered Downworlder children begin to appear, Clary, Jace, and friends believe that Valentine is attempting to perform a ritual to change the nature of the Sword from angelic to demonic Still reeling from the revelations of the last book, Clary and Jace must put aside their individual problems and stop Valentine before he destroys the Clave.

While the previous book lacked originality, the story presented here is actually fairly unique and makes for an exciting, interesting plot Clare had such a great idea with this premise, but the story is largely ruined by the amount of teen melodrama that's heaped on top of the main plot. For every big event that happens, there's at least as much drama, if not more, to fill out the pages.

Honestly, a lot of the problems with the drama overtaking the story would be solved if Clary and Simon were removed from the novel. Yes, I am actually suggesting that the book would be better without two of the three main characters. All these two bring to the story is drama; every emotional hang up is in some way connected to Clary and Simon does very little beyond perpetuating the angst.

The Shadowhunters, though sometimes whiney enough themselves, actually do things to advance the plot while the human and I'm counting Clary under this category because, aside from using runes, her actions are closer to those of the mundane characters side of story just stagnates and bogs down the rest of the plot.

This leads to some pacing issues. The beginning of the book starts off with a bang with Valentine summoning a greater demon to do his bidding, killing a young warlock in the process. It's exciting and sets the right tone for the novel. Immediately afterward we get a scene with Clary and Simon struggling with their feelings for one another, and it goes downhill from there.

The Mortal Instruments 02 City of Ashes

The next 6 chapters or so seem to drag. Sure, a few things happen with Jace and the Inquisitor and the Seelie Court more on that later , but a larger-then-necessary portion of the book is spent on Clary, Jace, and Simon lamenting over their relationships.

Further more, it seems like every time they come close to talking it out, something happens to drag the conversation out even farther. The last hundred pages or so are great with the characters taking action and using their abilities to stop Valentine. Getting there, however, is a slow, frustrating process of slogging through the main characters moping about their emotions. Sadly, if the gratuitous amounts of angst weren't present, the story would be pretty solid.

Clare's writing continues to be enjoyable, if occasionally a little too prosy. She has a certain knack for capturing the setting of New York in all its gritty glory. The writing moves the story along while having a certain attitude to it. That's not to say it's perfect; Clare tends to overuse certain phrases and add just a few too many unnecessary words. Overall, though, her prose is better than that in many other YA novels.

She also shifts the point of view throughout the chapters. Since all Clary seems to do is angst and complain, I enjoyed seeing things from other characters' perspectives. Also, since Clary can't realistically be everywhere, the point of view shifts make the story more interesting simply because we get to see big events that we otherwise wouldn't if the focus was still strictly on Clary.

Unfortunately, Clare still suffers from a huge problem that plagued her in the first novel: She tries to hold out the suspense a little too long and ends up dropping so many hints that the reader can figure out what's going to happen way before it does. In "City of Ashes," we get a whole chapter devoted to the group going to the Seelie Court, which, given how little of the faeries we see during the big showdown, seems to hold no purpose beyond causing Clary and Jace to question whether or not they're truly related I'm going to go out on a limb and say they aren't.

Simon's big transformation, Clary's special ability, the Inquisitor's secret I was pleased that "City of Bones" contained very little romance with only bare traces of the dreaded love triangle.

This staple of much YA lit is in full-force in "City of Ashes. Initially, I was pleased that the author didn't immediately dismiss their relationship; it would have been unrealistic for the pair to simply get over their romantic feelings for one another in a matter of days.

I had hoped this book would have them coming to terms with their new relationship as brother and sister and have them bond in that manner. Instead, they continue their relationship as if nothing has changed.

They never stop to consider the ramifications of what they're doing beyond saying they don't care and just blaze on. When written well, an incestuous relationship in an adult novel can add something to a story; here Although they'll probably find out in the next book that they aren't siblings, that doesn't make their actions in this book ok since as far as they know, they're brother and sister.

On the other side of the triangle, Clary and Simon are a pathetic joke. I couldn't help but feel bad for the nerdy best friend, as he seems to be genuinely in love with Clary, but she dismisses him for her hotter, brooding, more talented brother. I knew that by the end of the novel, this part of the love triangle would have to be resolved; Simon never stood a chance next to Jace.

So we end up the romantic conflict being the protagonist trying to choose between her brother and her awkward best friend, which, when you add the copious amounts of angst it brings to the story, is hardly satisfying or suspenseful on any level. 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?
