We were bowled over by Cassandra’s first, City of Bones and from the feedback from readers you clearly were too. This is the second in The Mortal Instruments series and doesn’t disappoint. Utterly captivating, beautifully written, cleverly plotted with characters that you both love and hate, the terrifying underworld of New York is sure to hold you spellbound long after you’ve finished the last page.
