When I finished City of Bones, I felt that I enjoyed the experience but I was in no hurry to continue the series. Now that I've read the second book, I felt a slight urgency to continue. Obviously that is a good sign, that City of Ashes is an improvement over the 1st book.
I like the world Cassandra Clare had created. I enjoyed the conflict and even the villain. However, I'm sort of blah with the love triangle in the story. I really have no opinion about Clary, and Jace is just too arrogant for my taste. As for Simon, I already had a feeling what will his role be, so I'm not even putting him in the running.
To put it mildly, I will continue to series, mainly for the action and the resolution of the Valentine conflict, and just as an afterthought to find out whether I was right about the pairings.
