City of Ashes: Book 2
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadow hunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Down worlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadow hunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadow hunting world isn't ready to let her go—especially her handsome, infuriating, new found brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadow hunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil—and also her father.
