First Impressions: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

City of Ashes is the second book in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, a book series that I have been dying to read since my adoration of the Infernal Devices series written by the same author. After finally finishing City of Bones (the first book in the series) on Sunday night, I was elated by the fact that I'd picked up City of Ashes a few weeks ago in preparation for this time and dove straight into the story.
