The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most importantly of all—she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.
But nothing comes without a price.
Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her—his mother just found out that he’s a vampire, and now he’s homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.
I think that this book is my favourite book of all among the other books in the series. The characters are most of the time joking and laughing. Just having the times of their lives. Especially Jace, Simon and Jason. These three are so precious when they’re together. I constantly found myself laughing along with their jokes, no matter how lame they are.
As always, Jace and Clary are always dealing with their own demons and dramas. It just won’t ever leave them. It would leech and suck on them, drawing away their happiness from each other.
All in all, this book was the most chilling, calming and not to forget hilarious out of all the other books. Its the calm before the storm, in another word.
