Book Review: The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes

So I finished another book! I started and finished the second book in The Mortal Instruments set. The main outline of this book takes place a few weeks after the first book ends. Clary and Simon are now officially dating, and Jace has been kicked out of the Lightwood’s home and brought to the catacombs and was placed in a cell. While there Valentine breaks into the Silent City and kills all of the silent brothers and steals the mortal sword.  To clear Jaces name after the inquisitor has fingered him in being aligned with his father, Clary, Jace, Alec and Isabelle need to track down the mortal sword and stop valentine before he can complete the ritual that will change the sword to an evil tool. In the process they end up at the faerie queen’s court and In Luke’s command center for his pack. SPOILER ALERT:  Simon is turned into a vampire and Clary discovers she is able to create runes.

All in all the book was pretty good.  I really enjoyed it and I am really looking forward to the next one in the series.  I know this is a pretty short post but next week I am going to do one about My gym workouts.
