An Amazing Sequel,
This review is from: City of Ashes (Mortal Instruments) (Paperback)
This is book is one if my all times favourite. I just could help but read it again.
Cassandra's writing doesn't disappoint. There are some great scenes and she introduces new characters in a really nice and upbeat way that doesn't slow the book down.
The tension in between the main protagonists, Jace & Clary, just keeps building to exploding point as all their feelings are laid bare and raw. Again, the plot is amazing and it escalates the happenings of the first book to another level without dropping the ball. This also sees the development of a gay relationship in a very subtle way, which I thought was lovely. I have never read anything with a gay couple in it so this was an interesting, but still mild enough, way to introduce me to the idea gently to the point that they have become my second favorite couple in the series.
