When the Silent Brothers are murdered and the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Sword of Souls, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor is dispatched from Idris to investigate. She clearly harbors a personal grudge against Jace, and she drives a wedge between him and his adoptive family. When Clary's romance with her best friend, Simon, starts to heat up, Jace feels abandoned. But has he, as the Inquisitor accuses, joined up with his father?
Then Simon is turned into a vampire and kidnapped by Valentine, who intends to sacrifice him as part of a bloody ritual that will make the Mortal Instruments his own forever. Jace knows he needs to save Simon's life, for Clary's sake. But what if he's too late? What if Valentine has already made the Mortal Instruments his own?

I would definitely recommend this to others. It is easy to get into the story of Clary & Jace. You feel for them..you wonder what is around the next bend for them. I was disappointed when it ended, but couldn't wait for the next book!
Say something about yourself!
This is a great series & I read the books first so listening was like revisiting a favorite place
Finding out who Jace & Clary are to each other!
She was very easy to understand, however I prefer when they continue using the same narrator for the duration of a series. Cassie Clare's books have all been narrated by different people.
Loved the first and second book...can't wait to hear the 3rd...even liked this better than Twilight series believe it or not :)
Wow, how did I not know about this series sooner? It is right up my alley. Supernatural characters galore, budding romance, action packed, and so much more. The characters really come into their own here and the story propels forward at a better clip. The narrator of the first book is young, too young. This is resolved in the second book, although she sounds a little bit like a robot at times (sorry to put that in your head before you read it), by the third she has it down and it is just plain awesome all around. If you are a supernatural fan, then you will love these books. Highly recommend!!
Yes. It's an important part of the series.
Yes. I enjoy reading her writing.
She did a good job of narrating.
To finish the series.
Definitely! I don't think I could read another book in this series. I read the first one, and I ended up skimming through the majority of it. At least when I listened to it on Audible I was able to read/listen to all of it!
She is the best voice for Clary! I really like everything she brings to the story! Moore makes the story even better!
I liked the second installment in The Mortal Instruments trilogy I think better then the first. Lots of action, twists and turns as Jace and Clarey try to stop Valentine. Can't wait to listen to the third.

Well, Cassandra Clare is on a roll with this series. She now has me on pins and needles waiting for the final installment. There are MANY more shockers in this book and lots of action. There are moments that make you laugh out loud and then gasp in suspense. It is a really fun book and I can't wait until March 2009 for the final book in this trilogy.
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.
