City of Ashes book is finished in a short time. There was not much action in terms of action, but I think it was a good book emotianlly in terms of development of the characters and the reader’s adaptation to the world of shadows. The development of the characters, the events they experienced, the harmony between Jace and Clary was very pleasant. Even though I was annoyed with Clary at times, I could have reacted to her if I somehow put myself in her shoes. Although they are fictional characters, they are brought to life and come to life in Cassandra Clare’s words. In this way, we get annoyed with some of the characters and fall in love with others. 🙂

As I said, the issues that passed between Jace and Clary were livable details. They soon formed an emotional bond with each other before they knew they were brother and sister. When they learned that they were related by blood, it was torture for both of them to ignore this situation.

I guess in the City of Ashes it was only Alec who started good things in his life. I loved the rapprochement with Magnus. Even though it wasn’t explained too much and was passed superficially, even this made me extremely happy. He was one of my favorite characters in the TV series Alec. As I read it, I like it even more when a tall, handsome, shy and extremely thoughtful character comes to mind like in the TV series.
