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 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!
1 to 10 it gets the 7.
I loved how Simon began his transformation and the story of Mya. I didn't cry but I was moved by the story in the book. The Inquisitor was a very good twist to the story. I feel bad about her undoing but I guess there has to be some sacrafice.
I alway had problem with reading while traveling, so this s the solution.
Jace kissed Clarrissa by order of Fairy Queen
Last minute that Clarry was about to open with Jace, but the things was turns over.
Not, at all. I loved the first book in this series, especially the narrator for the first book, Ari Gardner.
This book used Natalie Moore for the narrator who sounded too old and all her voices were almost the same and her voice is quite monotone. She did not add to the the narration of City of Ashes, at all. Why didn't we get the same narrator for this series, I wonder?
I will be buying the book, instead of the audio version if Natalie Moore is the narrator again.
The most interesting is a secret in the story, so I don't want to ruin it for others, the least interesting was the mother in the institute.
Natalie Moore was too dead-pan and did not add to the book at all.
She was fine.
No this book is trash. If you want a teen drama with a poor plot and crapy climax this is the book for you.
