City of Ashes

City of Ashes  - Cassandra Clare I don't quite know how to start this review. After reading City of Bones even though I was disappointed by the ending I wanted to continue reading. I wasn't quite ready to give up these characters. I am glad I continued as the story became more gripping. I found it quite difficult to put this book down.

Firstly I would like to say that I feel this book flowed more than the first. It was easier to read and to follow and less predictable that COB. I felt sorry for Simon through this book because you can tell how much he is in love with Clary but she is still smitten with Jace, even after finding out he is her brother. Clary knows its wrong but she just can't help her feelings. I found these scenes hard to read. I kept wanting to scream "he's your brother". I did however persevere. If you ignore the I'm in love with my brother aspect of this book it's quite a good story.
