Don’t miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture in theaters August 2013.Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? 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? In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City’s Downworld, where love is never safe, and power becomes the deadliest temptation.

Series: The Mortal Instruments (#2)

I despised the romantic relationships/interests of the main characters Clary and Jace. I didn't really like the way one character becoming a vam...
For some reason, I'd completely forgotten that I was reading this book. Out of guilt, I then decided to give it priority and finish it immediately. It was a quick read and the number of obligatory eye rolls was not as high as I initially assumed. I'm not completely sold on this series yet though. Th...
Dzisiaj będzie bardzo nieskładnie. Pojawią się myśli zamienione na zdania. Ogólnikowe, bo dzień coś nie skłania do pisania. Valentin, Valentin... ta postać jest naprawdę fascynująca. Wydaje się zła, bardzo zły, a równocześnie można w nim znaleźć ludzkie uczucia. Valentin jest głównym wątkiem to...
Finalmente sono riuscita a leggere il secondo volume della saga Shadowhunters. In questo libro continuano le avventure di Clary e i suoi amici, ancora scossi per il ritorno di Valentine e la scioccante notizia del reale rapporto tra la protagonista e Jace. Nonostante abbia amato anche questo volu...
This book had plenty of suspense. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I was uncomfortable with Clary as she and Jace tried to fix their weird relationship. I really liked Clary and Simon, and was saddened by the fact that Clary was using him to distract herself from Jace. Jace is annoyin...
