This is getting so juicy. I love how the fact that Ms Clare always find a way to wrap up but leave you hanging just a bit. I am so glad I got to the series now than before only because I wouldn't have to wait 1 year for the next.City of Ashes did not disappoint for me at all. It had a little bit of everything from humor to suspense. We get to see Simon side a little better, which I was truly happy about. Valentine is more of a lunatic. Jace goes through different emotions throughout the story. Clary learns how to do some great stuff (which by the way was totally badass). Overall I need to read the next one ASAP!!!!
