Review: City of Ashes

City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

With all the slow setup from Book #1 out of the way, this sequel latches onto its plot and roars forward with humor, romance (even if a bit sqwicky), terror, and engrossing twists. I love all the characters, except perhaps for the villain Valentine, who doesn't seem as scary as he might.
