a girl whose got major issues with supernatural creatures and the worlds worst father attempts to keep him from destroying earth with the help of her friends and brother whom shes in love with...yep MAJOR issues there...
I couldn't put this book down. It's a great sequel to City Of Bones, you could even say it's better. It has its problems, but those are things you can get pass because the story just absorbs you completely. There was a lot of action and suspense with this one, but it was equally amazing. I can't wait to read City Of Glass!

Be with me. Want me. Stay with me. I don’t know how to be without you." - Jace Wayland”
