I'm a girl who reads and have too many books. You’ll know that I do because I will always have an unread book in my bag and my shelves. A girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. A girl who has a list of books she wants to read.

City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

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?

Setelah merasa kurang puas sama buku pertamanya, saya harus kecewa lagi karena saya masih ngerasain hal yang sama di buku kedua ini. Clary masih aja nyebelin bagi saya, dan meskipun petualangan Shadowhunternya lumayan, saya merasa kurang greget aja.
Judul dari kelima seri ini, City of Bones, City of Ashes, dll adalah cerminan tempat yang akan didatangi Clary dkk dalam petualangan-petualangannya. Sayangnya, penceritaan setting yang menjadi judul buku ini terkesan buru-buru. Jadi nggak masuk ke hati. Setelah membaca ulang pun, saya masih dengan mudah melupakan feeling dan imajinasi saya tentang kota asap ini.
