ê City of Ashes ↠´ Download by ✓ Cassandra Clare 1 City of BonesYou are an arrow shot directly into the heart of the Clave, Jace You are Valentine s arrow Whether you know it or notI recently did a poll on Twitter, asking people if I should continue on with this series, or just throw in the towel and read Lady Midnight I will say that the majority vote was for me to just skip it all, but so many of my best friends wrote to me and pleaded with me not to So, here I am, continuing on.
I truly enjoyed City of Bonesthan City of Ashes, which, I m not going to lie, scares me for City of Glass, but I m going to read it anyway I just felt like this book has too many Harry Potter parallels From the use of Fenrir Greyback to help Valentine justify being a bigot, to Valentine s just general quest to collect horcrux like items Even the scene with him and Jace where Jace is screamingI m nothing like youI just felt like I could really see the Harry 4.
5 STARS I keep sitting down to write a full read long review of this book because I enjoyed it so much, but I struggle so hard on writing my thoughts for sequels in a long running series I know I m not supposed to include spoilers in them even though this book is older than both of my children s ages combined , so it s tough to talk about a book to readers involved in The Mortal Instruments Either you ve already read the book and likely are not looking for any additional insights into the story, or you haven t read it yet and don t want to know any specifics for a book that is farther down the line than where you re at Whatever the case, I ll just leave it at this I loved City of Ashes and am grateful for it s slump snatching abilities to pull me out of the dark reading hole I was in I know I m older than the target audience here, but I applaud Cassie Clare for her inclusion of divers Also See Alternate Cover Editions For This ISBN ACEACEClary 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 Time With Her Best Friend, Simon, Who S Becoming 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 FatherTo 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 guess 9th times the charms because I loved this book waythan I ever had I think in my adolescence, I spent a lot of my time comparing City of Ashes to other books in the series This reread, I viewed this story as an individual entity, which allowed me to better appreciate the complexities and conflicts that arise in this sequel I had such a fabulous time rereading book two and cannot wait to continue rereading the rest of the series I didn t go online, hardly talked, didn t eat ok so I did eat , didn t watch TV just so I could finish this book So basically I spent the whole day reading and I m just bursting at the seams to read the next one.
The tension in the book is so great that you feel like the characters are literally going to break from the strain Clary s mother is still in a coma and her relationships with Simon and Jace are fragile At one point you just feel so down for everyone Clary seemed to be getting in the way sometimes Like she isa liability rather than an asset No worries in the end we get to see some real gumption from her It s ever changing who is my favorite I ll be thinkingIsabelle is my favorite waitno Max he s really cute but.
Luke is greatthen again Simon is just so painfully loyal , Picking up where City of Bones left off, City of Ashes doesn t waste any time before plunging you right back into this supernatural world This book was packed with action and adventure With ever changing information and plenty of teenage angst, this cast of characters tries to stay one step ahead of Valentine, making for a highly entertaining read.
Still reeling from the news that they re siblings, Jace and Clary struggle with their feelings toward one another Awkward doesn t begin to describe the dynamic between these two after that cat was let out of the bag Maybe it s just my wishful thinking, but I m betting that somewhere down the road we ll find out that they aren t really siblings after all I just refuse to believe that they won t end up together.
While the blooming romance between Jace and Clary came to an abrupt and uncomfortable halt, Simon steps out of the shadows With Jace Well that was awkward SPOILERGRAM But before we head down the path of outrageous incest, I will say that City of Ashes was better than City of Bones The pace was an improvement on that of the latter Simon was still awesome as ever I also felt that Ms Clare branched out a wee bit with her creativity with the Vampire transformation stuff, except that I knew it was coming thanks to a certain Filipino minx who spilt the beans in a comment You know who you are.
As for the abomination that is the Clary Jace lustfest Well, it s a good thing I have a good gag reflex image error
I can t do it I just can t.
Screw this series.
My problem with this series isn t the writing I m not one to judge books by the writing since I am pretty terrible at it myself My problem also isn t exactly the story, which I probably could like Sort of I think I don t know But anyways, my main problem isn t any of that.
It s the characters.
How can you continue with a series when you feel nothing but pure hatred towards the characters They all just infuriated me to no end Jace Wayland especially He was nothing but a painfully arrogant jackass.
I tried to give this series a chance, but that was pretty much the last straw I simply will not continue on with it, and guess what John no longer uses this account I have no patience for this bullshit any longer There are many ways to state an opinion that is in disagreement with this review, and so far, many of you have FAILED to do so I will no longer tolerate disparaging comments Rethink them if you don t want me to delete them Thanks,John s SisterPS John is not male She changed her gender status so she would not receive misogynistic comments, or gendered insults JFYI.
I will tell the complete and honest truth And I will tell it right now.
IIII don t takes deep breath Idon tlikethisstory It s true, okay, it s true Let me explain I ve never liked Cassandra Clare In fact, I hate her writing So it surprised me in this story that I could even deal with her prose Deal with it, mind you It surprised me eventhat I could read through it somewhat smoothly So my problem isn t wit
So Voldemort is still alive Oh noes Enter the Clave and the Inquisitor, Dolores Umbridge Umbridge has been sent to see if Draco is telling the truth that he had no idea Voldemort was his dad this whole time we were led to think Voldemort was dead because he blew up his house and left body parts that actually belonged to the real Malfoys, in a move reminiscent of Peter Pettigrew blowing up a ton of Muggles and his pinkie finger in order to fr
