Publisher's Summary

Clary Fray just wants her life to go back to normal - but that turns out to be impossible. For one thing, her mother is still in the hospital, in a mysterious coma. For another, she and her brother, Jace, have fallen under a cloud of suspicion now that the Shadowhunter world knows that Valentine is still alive - and that Jace and Clary are his son and daughter. Not to mention that someone in New York is killing Downworlders and draining their blood, creating a climate of suspicion that sends Downworld Manhattan to the brink of civil war.

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?

    "great book"

    I do wish the narrator of the city of bones would have done the whole series. I thought she put more into, accent and all.

    "3 STARS!"
    Would you try another book from Cassandra Clare and/or Natalie Moore?

    Yes. I love the shadow hunter world, so i'm really excited to continue it, especially since I heard the third book is amazing.


    Would you recommend City of Ashes to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, This book was better than the first book, but it had a really slow start, but there's a lot of information you need to know. I very much disliked the love triangle, i HATE love triangles, i don't see a point in them, and this annoyed me so much, it was a 4 star, but because of the love triangle i bumped it down to 3.


    Could you see City of Ashes being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Actually... it's being made into a show... so...

    the whole series is truly a master piece.i loved the book. once you start reading this, you'll really get caught up in it. don't listen to the bad reviews. when you read the serious for the first time , the relationship between Clary and Jace is a little weird but you really have yup read book3 and it just gets better and better

    "So Much Better Narration"
    What made the experience of listening to City of Ashes the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it was not the person who narrated City of Bones who did a most dreadful job!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Learning that all the stories are real! It's really an interesting concept, which is why this is one of my favorite series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love learning about Simon's change.

    "Great read and narration"

    I have the paperback of this series, but my MIL suggested I use audible and listen to my books while I work instead of music. it has helped a lot. and I was worried about the narrator being dull, but the one who narrated this, used not only different tones, but different accents as well ♡

    "Not as captivating as hoped"

    I read this book out of context from the rest of the series. The story itself isn't as captivating as I had hoped, so by itself it wasn't that great, but maybe would be better having read on from the first book.
