City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare Book Summary

Is love worth betraying everything? Plunge into the second adventure in the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and “prepare to be hooked” (Entertainment Weekly).

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?

In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation.

Amazing. This book is just amazing. You have to read the series.

Love this. I loved the 2nd book and i just want to keep reading the whole series. You felt like you were being sucked into the book you just cannot take your eyes off. LOVED IT!!!!!

Read it... Seriously. I read the first book in the series "City of bones" and loved it!!!! In the past I have read good books but have been disappointed with the second. So I was questioning buying the second book. But after purchasing this book and reading the first few pages I was hooked!!! I finished it in 2 days. And I am eager to read the third book "city of glass"!!!!

Amazing!. This book was overall an amazing sequel to the City of Bones! I can't wait for the next books to come!!

LOVED IT!. The first book was amazing! And now this one was even better! Can't wait to read the third and fourth! (and eventually fifth and sixth!)

Good book, but uncomfortable. I think it was a great book, and not too weird of dark things or horrow. The thing with the brother sister thing really makes me uncomfortable and at times I really don’t like it, but the plot and everything keeps me wanting to read! Well written and good humor and I love that Clary isn’t too clumsy or helpless as a main character in love.

Another awesome read. I enjoyed this book as much as the first. The story and it's characters are so engaging. The story keeps you on your toes wondering what's going to happen next and trying to figure out the various mysteries within the story. I can't wait to begin reading the next book. I'm sure I won't be able to put it down either

really good. au contraire to what that idiot said in the review below, of course this book doesn’t follow the show or the movie. it came way before both of them, and is, frankly, way better. the movie tried, at least, it just fell short of the mark. the show however…. *shudders* the ONLY thing the show got correct was the characters. other than that, the show was so off that it shouldn’t be called shadowhunters.

Amazing Book!!. I read the book like two or three times already, I'm obessed with the series!!!:)

Such a good read. I stated reading this series a few years ago but just never got around to finish the series. I just started reading it and have not been able to put it down. This is such a good story and I highly recommend it

OMG!. This book and the City of Bones are the best books I've ever read!! I don't know what everyone was talking about saying the movie wasn't good! I loved it!! I hope the movies become popular enough to make it!!

Ashes. If you loved the first one, you will like this one. Cassandra Clare has created a world that is just one of the best things ever.

Love it. This book is like a girl everyday dreams. Fighting for her life and meeting the guy she love. It's the best book you'll ever read. Don't miss out in the adventures of young love. Amazing book, totally recommend it!!!

Really good!. But there was an entire chaperter when I downloaded it !!!!! So I'm EXTREMALLY BUMED!!!! I don't even know whats going on now!!!!!!!! Grrrrrrrrr :{

Team Jace!!. So hot

Amazing. One of the best books I've ever read!

So exciting. I love this series. Clary is a little annoying sometimes, but you have to remember she's young and ignorant to this world. It is wonderful watching her grow and learn what true evil is. I love the new characters. The battle on the ship is so exciting. I love when Jace fights. Exciting!

😭😱😍. Literally soooooo much love for this series💕. It doesn't get any better than this.

One of the best books ever written. This book is my get away from the clutter of life.

TMI: City of Ashes!!. Love this book, it pulls you into the story!!

Team jace. Team jace all the way

City of Ashes. One of the best books I have ever read. It was amazing, I couldn't put the book down!! I was obsessed. Five stars for sure. Read this book and the next one city of glass. Now I'm starting the maximum ride series!!.(:

Love love this series. One of the best

😂🤦‍♀️. Someone really said “it doesn’t follow the show or the movie” , that’s cuz it’s the OG story dude

Amazing. This book is part of the most captivating series i have ever read. I love these books as well as the books in the infernal devices series

Awesome!. Love the books! Can't put them down!!!

it's about ibooks. i can't see the last full sentence of the chapters on this while being on my preferred flip mode instead of scrolling. :(

Love the series. But it's cheaper for the nook

Awesome. Luv it, Luv it, Luv it!!!! I wish I was in this book I can't even describe how much I love this book!

Such a good book. This is such a kewl book! I love it!!😍 I cannot wait for the third book! Cassandra Clare, you are the greatest author in the world!! P.S. "Kewl" means cool

HOOKED!!. I started reading the first book last year and then I said to myself, why did you wait so long to start reading the series. I am HOOKED and I love a good book but this is superb, every character is good but out of all of then my favorite is Magnus Bane. I can't wait to start reading the rest of the books along with "The Infernal Devices", "The Bane Chronicles", and eventually whatever comes after.

Fantastic. It is amazing and wonderful. I enjoyed it a lot.

Amazing. Probably my favorite of the Mortal Instruments books. If it weren't for Mockingjay, this would be my favorite book ever. BUY IT.

Great Read. I thoroughly this second book. The story becomes moe and more interesting. Highly recommend it.

Amazing!. This book is intense and emotionally gripping with all its dramatic twists and turns. The witty dialogue and general darkness give it an edge, yet the humor lightens it to just the right degree. Beautiful!

City of Ashes. Hands down amazing!!!! Gotta get started of City of Glass!!!!!!!

AWESOME!!!. This book had many great twists. It is a must read!

omg. omg omgo omg godnagabsog my fucing fod this book has it all i eant to eat it it is so good

Greatest series so far. Once again Cassandra has got me hooked. These books define the sentence "getting lost inside a books world". I need the next book. City of Bones, City of Ashes, and now of Glass. Can't wait.

Help!. - So i have seen City of Bones (movie), haven't read non of the books. My question is can i jump and start reading City of Ashes or should i still read book one?

Did not disappoint!!. This book was just as amazing as the first of its series!! I can not put it down!!

AMAZING. This book was so awesome . But is sad that Jace and Clary can't be together because they are bother and sister. But this book is amazing. I was like WOW. :D

Vjcluck. Love this series!!!!

CITY OF BONES FAN. I thought that this book was amazing, and I can't wait to read city of glass.Even though I think city of bones was better I would still read this book, and yes it is worth the read.

This is amazing. One of my top ten favorite books a must read

Great addition to the series. This series is such a great original story filled with fantasy, action, and violence. This book is violent and has some makeout scenes that may leave teens uncomfortable. There is a brief and crude reference to male anatomy and other milder terms and cussing. Good for: ages 14+

So amazing. This book never had a dull moment . It was a constant thrill ride .

Omg TEAM JACE. Jace! U actually know him you can seriously fall in love with him by the first page! If u don't ilk Simon don't worry they don't last that long

Love it!. Can't wait to read the third!

Love this series. I am totally in love with this book. I will not stop until I read all of these books. I'm always a fan of dark romance, adventure, and fantasy. I'm a total "Clase" fan. I love u Clare :-D
