Author’s info: Shadow Hunters World
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. (Synopses)
So much happened in this book! I love the suspense, it is jam packed with non-stop action. I am obsessed with this series. This is the book that I read the synopses before reading the first book, I did not know it was the second book I think. So I found out pretty much everything, the most important part was that Jace was Clary’s brother. I knew because I read it ahead of time, but when I read the first and second book I understood more of what was going on. I love how this world just consumed me, I felt like I was right in the middle of the action. This series is so much fun to read, the world Cassandra Clare created is just amazing. I love the characters, my favorite is Jace, not only because of his beautiful features but because he’s so funny. I think he is very rough with Clary, like he doesn’t have the time for her. He’s witty and oh so funny! I love Jace. Although his relationship with Clary is strange, he does not let anything bad happen to her and he’s always by her side whether he agrees with her choices or not.
This book gets 5/5 stars of course! It’s my favorite series and I recommend it to YA readers.
I hope you’re having a good book week & enjoy reading!
