The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most importantly of all—she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.
But nothing comes without a price.
Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her—his mother just found out that he’s a vampire, and now he’s homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.
Please note that in the sections to come there WILL BE SPOILERS. I've warned you!
The pacing here was really slow and at the beginning this book was really boring. But what's most mostly non of it made any sense. I couldn't see the point of this book. I still can't to be honest. Once again characters started to annoy me and Jace mainly (side note: please don't compare Jace and Will any more. There is a huge difference between being douche and cocky and Jace is the former.).
Another problem I had with this one (yes there are many) is the villain. I just wonder who is next. God, himself? Valentine was a perfect villain and one who could be beaten and who is no invincible. But I cannot say the same for the Lilith. I mean the first women ever and they kick her ass like that. Really?
Now you may wonder where on earth I found that half star. Well...
But, still I'll go on and continue with this series as one of my GR friends told me it gets better. I hope so.
Rating: 1.5 stars.
Until the next time,
