Book two of the Mortal Instruments series - Clary's got a whole new set of challenges on her hands.
Her mom's still in a coma. Her dad is still the evil overlord trying to destroy the world. Her best friend still wants to be her boyfriend. And the boy she's in love with is still her brother.
But she's discovered she's got a special superpower. And Simon's had an unfortunate accident with a vampire. And Jace is under Clave arrest, suspected as a spy for Valentine.
This one's got a lot of action - those Shadowhunters really enjoy a good fight - and dramatic tension as Clary learns more and more about her legacy. It's also got great moments of humor ... since nothing cuts the tension like a bit of sarcasm!
