Excerpt: "Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her—his mother just found out that he’s a vampire, and now he’s homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace."
My Rambles: I am getting tired of Jace doing the stupid "I love you but I cant have you" tortured soul thing. Like they are making the relationship harder than it needs to be, I know they are still kids but not for much longer, they don't have the excuse any more. I feel like Lilith wasn't given enough for how big of a bad she was supposed to be, they got rid of her too easily. Though Clary is terrified by the mark of Cain now because of it. This book moved a lot slower than its predecessors.
