4.0 out of 5 stars
a thrilling slice of fantacy and reality., 12 Jun. 2009
City of ashes is exhilarating to the point were I actually felt intoxicated, because at times in the book I would stop breathing and was too intrigued to realise. the book has both the fantastic creatures of the underworld and the reality of Clary's real life problems- she's only just found out that her father is and evil dictator and put her mother in a coma, then there is Jace the Shadowhunter boy she fell in love with only to find out that he is her brother- Clary's life is far more complex than she had once thought, what will she do, follow her heart or head? Read it and find out!
