    "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."

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. "

    "The shadowhunter book is very good. It is a multiple part series so it might take you some time to read it all. The story is full of interesting things and adventure and also there is some scary evil stuff in there too. "

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."

    "When I read I appreciate taking in fiction more than any other genre. I specifically am enamored with City of Ashes. This book featured a mothers will against an evil existence. I Felt like the dystopian novel worked well within the confines of its genre."

    "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."
  • Edward Robertson
    Written on May 3, 2018
    "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."

    "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. "

    "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."
  • Samuel Richards

    "This is a good read for those that like vampire hunter stories. Clary goes on yet another long adventure busting the bad guys. This goes on and on and it's a bit wordy, typical suspense thriller, pretty good read."
