What the community says about City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments)
- "This probably has the most detail in it on Amazon. It comes with so many options for ways to enjoy the story, and they are Kindle, hard cover, paperback, audiobook, mass market paperback, audio CD, and multimedia CD. It also gets good ratings. Something that I noticed is the tabs that lead you to this book in the book category mark this story as "teen & young adult" and "science fiction & fantasy" which is more detailed then the topic, which just asks for best books worth a movie. A question I would ask is, was the first book in this series in a movie? I think it may answer some questions as to why this was chosen as a solution to the topic!"
- "I like books with bad ass male characters, so I asked my local librarian if there was something like that I could check out. She suggested 'City of Ashes', the 2nd book in Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instrument series. I read it, and though the book wasn't bad, the most intimidating character in it, was the main, female one. It was sort of the opposite of what I asked for."
- "Being a fan of the Mortal Instruments series I would like to say that this book lives up to the hype. City of Ashes, the second book in the Mortal Instruments series is definitely worth the read for those who are a bit skeptical. I wouldn't say this is the best book on the series, but, it is surely a great addition with many surprises. The book gets better as the story goes on guaranteeing to keep you entertained throughout the entire read. ""I'm not familiar with the series, but it would appear that fans argue over which should be named the winner of best book of the Mortal Instruments series. I would say the first book in any series is always a favorite for me, as it introduces the characters and you get to see their backstory before their next adventures."
- "I am always looking for gay positive books and I can't believe I have found this one.. Even though is is meant for younger readers.. (9th grade and up)...It is compelling. Almost everyone who read it loves it as much as it's prequel city of bones. Don't miss this. Straight people will also love this.. and have."
- "This book invoked disturbing passionate thoughts of interspecies breeding and the disastrous consequences that result. I only with this book would have involved an emo skater or a punk so I could related to the content matter more. Never the less, a great romance novel! I just wished it focused more on the topics I was seeking. "
- "I've been a fan of the Moral Instrument series since I first picked up the books, and the second installment, "City of Ashes", does not disappoint. Cassandra Clare really knows how to captivate with her storylines and intricate symbolism. If you're into the religious supernatural, you'll be sure to love this series. "
- "If you are a fan of the Shadowhunters TV series, then this book is for you. From the popular series, follow Clary, her (more than ) friend Simon, and newfound brother Jace traverse a story of magic, conflict and love where werewolves, vampires, and fairies clash, in order to hunt down the evil Shadowhunter Valintine Fun and excitement for girls and boys alike."
- "I'm a 32 year old woman and I love reading books like these. This series was recommended to me by my friends 17 year old daughter. She said it was her favorite, and her and I read basically the same content. Loved this book. When I had the chance to sneak away from my 5 kids to read it."
- "the book City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments) is the second book in Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instrument series. it talks of a brave Clary who was trying to save her mother's life by tracking down the rogue evil Shadowhunter Valentine while proving Jace innocent of stealing the Soul-Sword."
- "I tried reading the second Mortal Instruments book, City of Ashes, but I didn't find anything to recommend it. The interesting concept from the first book was still present, but less than half way through I felt like I'd seen everything the author was going to do creatively, and everything started to feel too samey and boring to continue."
- "This is a very great book that is part of an iconic and interesting series. It may be one of the best books released in the year 2008, but would have serious competition with The Hunger Games original novel that came out in the same year. Either way it's a very good book and is very imaginative."
- "City of Ashes is a book by Cassandra Clare that is available from Amazon on multiple formats. It is a fantasy book about a hero chasing down an evil rogue. This a very popular book and the reviews on Amazon are outstanding. It has an average of 4.6 stars out of 5. It seems like this is a good fit for the topic."
- "I think this is a pretty decent direction to look in, as this book sounds interesting. However, this is not the most direct solution as it is the second book in a series, and I would very much like to start from the beginning. However, seeing as this book has glowing reviews and it sounsd very interesting, I think I will pick up the first book and check it out. "
- "I heard City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments) was a best internationally selling book, so I picked it up. It is the second installment of the Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instrument series which I think very highly of. It was a great book that I couldn't put down!"
- "The book begins by presenting Valentine in a building in Manhattan with a young warlock named Elias. Valentine convinces the warlock to summon a very powerful demon but Elias is killed when the pentagram he draw in order to contain it doesn't work. Valentine must collect a series of “mortal instruments” that the heroes fight to prevent him from acquiring. City of Ashes opens to her friend, Alec, and brother, Jace, bickering over a fight with a demon they just banished."
- "I personally don't have any experience with this book nor this genre. However, having read what the plot was about, it seems like this would be a great fit for the teenage woman YA chic. I could see it having the same impact as some of the other book-cum-movies we've seen in the young adult genre in the last few years."
