Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation.

I'm trying to get through it but I've been glassesless this month and just found them last night. Going to see how many books I can get through this week.

Farren (mmmcookies) I reread this one a couple weeks ago and I think it was the one I remembered the best of the whole series from when I listened to the audio. Probably because of all the stuff going on with Simon and the things that happen at the end. For you guys listening to the audiobooks, the narration changes with each book and I personally thought books 4-6 were narrated pretty poorly. I know I would have enjoyed them more if I read them myself so I'd definitely check out a sample before you pay for any... =D

Wendy (wmaresca) Started reading this am hopefully I can finish by tonight so I also make for this weeks author challenge. Fingers crossed. Planned on reading yesterday but got stuck binge reading the Shatter me series OMG loved it. couldn't put it down.

Wendy (wmaresca) Ok so I am about 150 pages away from finishing City of Ashes I am gong to finishes this tonight. Not going to bed until I am done. Really hoping the Seelie Queen knows something about Clary and Jace that has to do with them not really being sister and brother. fingers crossed.

Wendy (wmaresca) Well I finished late into the night or should I say early morning. So frustrated. I really like the series but come on. I just know the Inquisitor was going to say that Jace as her grandson. Ugh I just have this feeling. Darn it. lol. I give it 4 stars. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series this month. I don't think I will wait so long thins month to read it.

The reason I have not completed this series is because I have managed to lose this book. Book two. I couldn't lose the last book in the series no I had to loose book two.
