Review: City of Ashes

Tittle: City of Ashes
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publisher:  Margaret K. Mcelderry Books
Pages: 453 pages
Rating: 4/5 stars

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? Clary would love to spend more time with her best friend, Simon. But the Shadowhunters won't 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. When the second of the Mortal Instruments os stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor suspects Jace. Could Jace really be willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

What's normal if you can see Vampire,Warewolf,Pixies,Demon and even fought them? That's how Clary's life now. Ever since her mother was in coma and now she is a shadowhunter, life getting tough for her. Especially when she know that the evil Valentine was her father and Jace was her brother. 
And now some Downworlders was killed and they ran-out-of blood, The Night Children was getting blamed for this when actually it was, Valentine.

Because of that Jace was accused to be Valentine's spy and the Inquisitor decided to lock him in the jail in the Silent City where most of the criminals lay before the try. But suddenly The Silent Brother was killed and the Mortal Swords was taken away.  Clary, Isabelle and Alec travel to Silent City in order to save Jace and terrified by how the city look, and even more knowing that The Silent Brother was killed.  And when a pixies dead, the Seelie Court's Queen wants the Shadowhunter to protect them and Simon suddenly going to Hotel Dumort, where the Vampire lives

Jace know what Valentine's going to do with the Sword and the Cups, he is going to take a The Rising Ritual, summoned all the demon and fight The Clave, and Valentine need the blood of warewolf,warlock,pixies, and Vampire.

Why actually Valentine want to fight the Clave? Could it be true that Jace was his father spy? Travel to City of Ashes

I quite enjoy this book, even though I like City of Bones much more, I didn't like Jace here, he is being so protective with Clary and I didn't like that, it's like "whut? Jace? Seriously?" I prefer the cold-hearted Jace. and the plot sometime out of the point and making me skip some pages >//<
 But I like how Alec-Magnus relationship here, even though Alec still won't admit it but Magnus is like 'asdfghjkl' and Simon-Clary too, still, I can't decided whether I'm 'Team Simon or Team Jace'
