City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Title: City of Ashes
Author: Cassandra Clare
Pages: 411
Publication Date: Jul. 28th, 2008
Back Cover:  With her mother in a coma and her father hellbent on destroying the world, Clary Fray is dragged deeper into New York City's terrifying underworld of werewolves, demons and the mysterious Shadowhunters. Discovering the truth about her past was only the beginning. Now the fate of the world rests on Clary's shoulders, but can she master her new-found powers and control her feelings for a boy who can never be hers?

First Lines: The formidable glass-and-steel structure rose from its position on Front Street like a glittering needle threading the sky.
My Thoughts:  City of Ashes is an excellent sequel to the first book in The Mortal Instruments series, City of bones. With the character's emotions coming through, and the War between Valentine and the world raging, this book is dark, mysterious and dramatic.

Cassandra Clare has written this book very well. With each character being so realistic, and the original storyline, supernatural ideas and interesting twists, this book is well worth reading. I was so wrapped up in the world she has created, that I finished the book in under a day.

With an amazing plot, the adventure side of this story is covered. This thrilling urban fantasy is jam-packed with flying motorbikes, forbidden love and ugly demons. Whilst some of the twists were predictable, I loved the ending.
Rating:  4/5
