If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father? Show menu Top novels.

The things we said about him could never have applied to Valentine. A loving father. I thought that seemed accurate enough.

Maryse put a hand to her temple and massaged it as if her head were aching. She dropped her hand. Could you? Tell me you hate that man and everything he stands for. Surely you must know me better than that? The latter were enemies, and the former were weapons in his arsenal.

Whether you know it or not. She found him in the kitchen, bent over the sink with the water running.

His hands were braced on the draining board. She went over to the sink, laying a hand lightly on his back. He was sweating, the dark hair that lay across his forehead stuck to his skin, though the air coming through the half-open kitchen window was cool. Was it the movie? That night, looking back, seemed a long haze of running, of blood and sweat, of shadows glimpsed in doorways, of falling through space.

She remembered the white faces of the vampires, like paper cutouts against the darkness, and remembered Jace holding her, shouting hoarsely into her ear. She raised her eyes to his. His were the color of black coffee—not really black, but a rich brown without a touch of gray or hazel. Did he seem different? It was something she had noticed about Jace as well.

Perhaps it was only the awareness of mortality. He had lost weight, she thought, and was about to say so when he leaned down and kissed her. She was so surprised at the feel of his mouth on hers that she went rigid all over, grabbing for the edge of the draining board to support herself.

She did not, however, push him away, and clearly taking this as a sign of encouragement, Simon slid his hand behind her head and deepened the kiss, parting her lips with his.

City of Ashes

He tasted like salt. She let her eyes fall shut and for a moment floated dizzily in the darkness and the heat, the feel of his fingers moving through her hair.

They stared at each other for a moment, in wild confusion, like two people finding themselves suddenly transported to a strange landscape where nothing was familiar. Simon turned away first, reaching for the phone that hung on the wall beside the spice rack. He held the receiver out to Clary. She could still feel the pounding of her heart in her throat, like the fluttering wings of an insect trapped under her skin.

She swallowed. Is it you? The flush on his cheeks had faded. Why would he be here? Plus, receive recommendations for your next Book Club read. By clicking 'Sign me up' I acknowledge that I have read and agree to the privacy policy and terms of use.

City of Ashes Plot

Must redeem within 90 days. See full terms and conditions and this month's choices. But what if the magic that resides there is more than hectic energy and a bunch of tourist-friendly sites. In The Mortal Instruments trilogy, Cassandra Clare peels back the glamour to reveal the magic that is usually hidden from us.

In City of Bones, Clary can hardly believe her eyes when she sees a trio of teens slay a demon at her favorite nightclub. Along with her best friend, Simon, Clary struggles to absorb all that she is learning.

Demons attack her; Simon is turned into a rat at a warlock party and stolen by vampires; Valentine, an evil Shadowhunter long thought dead, is back and trying to find the Mortal Cup so that he can create a Nephilim army.

Can Valentine be right? Can Jace really be her brother? The story continues in City of Ashes, with Clary attempting to forget her love for Jace by avoiding him and dating Simon. When Valentine chooses that night to kill the Silent Brothers and steal the Mortal Sword, it only makes Jace look more guilty. After figuring out that Valentine is killing Downworlders in order to perform a ritual that will turn the Mortal Sword into a powerful instrument of evil, the teens visit the Seelie Court to ask the Faerie Queen for her help.

City of Glass takes place mostly in Idris, where Valentine is believed to be looking for the Mortal Glass so that he can complete his plan to overturn the Clave and eliminate all the Downworlders.

Clary is in Idris too, hoping to find a way to wake up her mother. In the course of doing this, she discovers that, before they were born, Valentine infused Jace with the blood of a demon, and Clary with the blood of an angel.

When demons attack the supposedly impenetrable city of Alicante, the revelations fly fast and furious. Simon has been imprisoned next to Hodge, Sebastian is a spy for Valentine, and Max Lightwood is killed.

Until Clary creates a rune that binds a werewolf to a Shadowhunter, allowing them to fight together and share powers. Magnus Bane brings Jocelyn to Idris, and she and Clary make up while the rest of the Nephilim prepare to fight.

Clary also marks Simon with the Mark of Cain so that he can fight with the rest and secure a place for the vampires in the new world that is being built. The Mortal Instruments series speaks to the outsider in all of us as we try to figure out who we are and how we fit into the world, without letting anyone know how scared we are. By finding a balance between the worlds of the mundane and the Shadowhunters, Clary defines what sort of adult she will be. Does she belong in the Shadowhunter world?

Why do these glamours exist? How do things change for Clary once she can see through them? Do their origins justify the roles they play and the rivalries between them?

What does he hope to accomplish by stealing the Mortal Instruments and fighting the Clave now? Whose best interests does he have in mind?

Do you think this is true? Can someone be a Shadowhunter and not believe in God?

Do you think the Silent Brothers play up this aura of creepiness? Why does Jace feel the way he does about putting himself in the line of danger? How does Clary change this?

Why do you think their feelings for normal humans are so complicated? What does Jace do to earn their trust? What should he have done? Does Maryse Lightwood really distrust him? Does this role change as the story progresses? How does the Clave feel about Luke? Why does he inspire such strong feelings in others?

In what ways is it helpful to him? Why did he betray his young charges? Was he just self-serving and bad, or did he do some good with his life? Was he right to fear Valentine more than the Clave? Why do you think they developed different skills? Will the other Shadowhunters view their abilities as a gift or a curse? Does its origin tell us anything about how Shadowhunters and Downworlders should treat each other?

Why is he willing to do these things? Does he gain anything by doing this? How does Clary define family? Where does Jace belong? Which of the three children—Clary, Jace, and Jonathan—was most affected by Valentine? Do you think this is a fair assessment? Do any other characters act like this? In the end, does this trait harm or help Clary?

What changes his mind? Where did it originally come from? How does it apply to the situation with Valentine? How does it compare to what Clary was thinking when she wrote it?

How does this figure into their gifts as Shadowhunters? Do these chapter headings add to the actions that take place in the chapters they begin?

Why do you think the author chose so many quotes from the Bible? Is the Bible important in the lives of any of the characters? What do you know about the sources of these quotations? What sort of works are they from? Is there a common theme? Why do you think the author chose these quotes?Jace and Clary confess their love to each other, Clary is torn between her love for Jace, and the taboo against it because they are blood relatives.

To fully appreciate it,.. Choking on hollowness, Jace yanked his boots on and headed downstairs to the library.

We saw the coolest stuff. Was he right to fear Valentine more than the Clave? What should he have done?
