Okay so now I've finally decided to give this series a go I'm actually really into it. This book is exceptionally better than the first one in both the plot and how well it was written. I found some parts absolutely cringe worthy, I mean come on the fact that Clary and Jace where still doing stuff with each other when they thought they were brother and sister just creeps me out too much to describe. I mean I can understand the troubles they may have had with coming to terms with being related but I don't think they fought hard enough against what they rightfully thought of as unnatural. This book tells more of the story from Jace's point of view as well as Clary's and a few other characters which gives you a good overall impression of what's going on. There wasn't really much along the lines of surprises in the book yet despite this it was still an exciting yet easy read.
