In this book we get to see more into Clary's and Simon's relationship (which became heated in the first novel), and how it gets complicated due to some life-changing events that happen to Simon. Jace and Clary's relationship is something the Clary is trying to forget, and Jace is still trying to pursue, even though in the first novel the reader learns that they are actually brother and sister (it's complicated, and to find out more you are just going to have to read the books, because I don't want to give away anymore that I have already, regarding their relationship :) ). However, both Clary and Jace are having difficulties hiding their feelings, because deep down they know they love each other. When it comes to Clary and Jace's complicated relationship think: Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia from Star Wars.
The action that takes place in this novel involves the return of Jace and Clary's long-lost father, who is planning on destroying the Clave (sort of like the Monarchy, or other power source, of the Downworlders and Shadowhunters); by stealing the Mortal Instruments. What are the Mortal Instruments? Well, they consist of three (maybe four) items that are highly important to the Clave. To find out what they are and what exactly they do, you will need to read the books! :). If these things sound even remotely interesting to you, and you like adventure, magic, mythical creatures, a little bit of romance, and action than I think you will truly enjoy this series!
That's it from me again! Coming up next is Sarah Dessen's newest novel What Happened to Goodbye...!!!! Have a great week!
