Very enjoyable follow up to the first book. At times I thought the fight scenes would never end.
I would have appreciated a bestiary to help classify/picture the demons.
I saw the City of Bones movie in the middle of this one, and kept picturing the actors instead of how I originally thought they looked.
my fist book on audible now i cam hooked to audible at night i stay awake till 12am just to listen to audible
I really enjoyed this book. As the second in a series I expected it to loose a little of the story as most series do, but it exceeded my expectations and brought more action and adventure with it.
Clary is still underestimated by everyone and Jace is as arrogant as always, but we learn more about some of the other characters in this book. We get a closer look at Magnus, finally meet the Lightwoods, and get a better understanding of the inner workings of the clave. We are also pulled into the crazy that is Valentine.
Cassandra Clare has gifted us with tons of twists and turns; just when you think you have it figured out she hits you with something new and you have a renewed since of urgency to get to the end and find out what happens! The ending is an emotional roller coaster that leaves you begging for the third book, City of Glass.
Mother. Artistic. Dreamer. Loves fiercely.
I couldn't help but feel this one was a little slow. Though there was action I didn't quite feel engaged enough in what was going on and had a difficult time remaining hooked. Besides one key event regarding Simon, it wasn't until a little passed the second half of the book that I started becoming more interested in what was going on.
Narration is good. Not monotonous at all and decent with accents and voice changes.
I liked it more then the first. Hooking but I have not got to the level of addiction for it as other books. Meaning I have not started dreaming about it. Time to start the third.
Maybe but I don't often relisten to books with them exception of the Oulander series.
No. She definitely does a better job a better job of narrating than Molly Quinn did for book 1. Big improvement!
Teenage forbidden love set in a supernatural world.
I guess the story, I love the characters and the plot.
I guess it's like Harry Potter but instead of wizards it's angels, werewolves, and vampires.
I really like her.
No, I got through it in three weeks.
Absolutely. This is a great story, full of great characters. Natalie Moore brings everyone of them to life with her narration. I was completely drawn in to this one just like the first book.
Wow that is a hard one. There are things I love about each one. That is one of the great things about the book. Having said that I think I would have to go with Jace followed very closely by Magnus. Jace just has the best comments and one liners ever.
Yes and I almost did.
This was the first audiobook I ever listened to. I wasn't sure if it was for me but the book as well as the reader was great.
Proud book worm!
It seems that this series just gets better with each book. Now Clarey has a problem. She's in love with Jac....who is her brother. So she is dating Simon...which is on rocky roads now because he is turned to a vampire fully. ZOINKS! Valentine Jac and Clarey's father is sturring up more troubles with murdering the silent brothers and other downworlders casting Jac and Clarey into bad light with the counsel. I'm loving this book!! I love the twist and turns the author is taking it and Natalie Moore is excellent in the Narration!
