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.


The story continues with an exploding bomb that was released in the last book. Valentine is trying to form his army again. Jace & Clary & the gang will do anything to stop him but can they? In this fight, will someone have to give sacrifice? Will someone be betrayed? Will someone lose their lover? Gosh this book holds the answers to all the above questions! Too much right?
Valentine is still the villainous person. Clary & Jace are more powerful than before. First, Clary and Jace are bae like seriously Jace's hotness can give you heart attacks. You know those moments where you go like *swoons* 😍. Well, Jace is my third favourite book boyfriend, Edward being the first and Tobias, second. Talking about action, Jeez more than book 1. The action was amazing! There were those movie like fight scenes! Romance! meh! I swear all the time you'll be reading, you'll feel pity for Simon and anger at Clary. Like she's still confused! Talk about the annoying love triangles here! 😑
Overall the book was well written, filled with hot characters that will make you addicted to this one sexy read! Talk about shadowhunters! 😍 I simply can't wait to buy the next book! Must recommended series to fantasy readers who love diverse stories to death!
Happy Reading! <3
