Currently Reading: City of Ashes

This is the second book in the Mortal Instruments series. I quite enjoyed the first book City of Bones. It is YA, my kids were reading it for the book club they’re in and I read along. I haven’t gotten far into the second book yet, so I can’t really review it but if you haven’t heard of this series, I would recommend it. It’s by Cassandra Clare and the action moves along at a satisfyingly quick pace. The main character is a shadow hunters (aka demon hunter) which is something you are born to. The catch is, she didn’t know. She was raised in our world so is now playing catch up learning about being a shadow hunter and about downworlders (other supernatural creatures such as vampires). Of course there is a thwarted romance going on. Got to have one of those.
