City of Ashes

Last night I finished listening to City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. It is the second book of the Moral Instruments book series. I haven’t read the first book yet. (I still have one person ahead of me) I actually have the second book. I had bought it a few years ago after I saw the movie City Bones (which the first book). I bought the book because I had heard that the movie is very close to the first book. I actually forgot I had read some of City of Ashes, but not all of it.

City of Ashes is about Carly trying to get used to the idea that Jace is her brother. She had tried to be Simon’s girlfriend. Then Simon gets “killed” and she makes the decision to let him be a vampire.He tries to adjust to being a vampire. Jace gets accused of knowing and conspiring with his father. Instead of a trial, Jace has used a pawn to get the moral instruments that Valentine stole. Clary and Jace learn they have special powers. Jace gives Simon his blood which gives Simon the ability to be in the sunlight.

I sorta liked the book. It was a little slow at first, but it got good towards the end. I’m reading next: Good Wives by Louisa May Alcott until The Rules of Thoughts by James Dasher, or City of Bones by Cassandra Clare comes available.
