The City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare Review

Thursday, February 11th 2016

What can I say about Cassandra Clare’s The City of Ashes, it’s simply amazing.

I can see why Holly Black would praise this book considering the fact that I believe she’s not actually human but a changeling sent to our real to help bridge Fae and Human relationship. There are so many features within this novel that I loved.

A. The Faery Court
Oh I Faes. I love faeries. Let it be known that I love faeries! I can see how Holly Black would love this book because she is great when it comes to writing about faeries. Cassandra Clare did an amazing job keeping the folklore, characteristics of the faery court try to myth and legends. I love how they entered the faery court from a body of water on a full moon, classic! I love how those who truly research faeries know that the faery realm is a mixture of beauty and hidden disgust all at the same time! I imagine the Faery queen to look like Ellen from the game Folklore.

B.   Can we please take a moment to realize how awesome Luke
is for loving someone who doesn’t openly love him back? OH Luke Luke Luke my dear beloved werewolf Luke! I want Clary’s mom to love him when she’s finally awoken from this terrible coma. It really warms my heart that Luke always told Clary that he wasn’t her dad to only have Clary claim that he is. I know that must have been a great loving surprise for Luke. But seriously he needs to have one week of non stress related pack duties/Valentine wrath because I’m not sure he can keep up with this drama. I’m starting to believe Luke is more coffee roaming his blood than werewolf venom or Shadowhunter blood. And yes I see Luke as a PS3 Folklore character as well.

I gave this book four-stars
Cassandra Clare has a wonderful way of capturing the emotions of the character through out situations that are hard to relate to. I have never been turned into a vampire but I can relate to the feeling of being under the weather. Her writing style when it comes to emotions is like a spider weaving a web. You’re not sure where the different  points of the web are but when it’s all webbed together you find yourself in the center, completely trapped  within it’s enchanted grasped.

I am very excited about this series and can’t wait to finish it!
Happy Reading everyone
