Fantastic book!

What made the experience of listening to City of Ashes the most enjoyable?

Its a fantastic story line. It can have you sitting on the edge of your seat dying to know what is going to happen next.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jace would have to be my favourite character, because his life as a lot of interesting twists and turns and throughout it all he still manages to help/stand by the others.

What does Natalie Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The different voices/accents for the characters and the parts that are in other languages.<br/>It is very easy to just close you eyes and be swept away by the story. Completely forgetting that it is not reality.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I have this book and the other mortal instrument books has both hardcover and audio books.<br/>So no matter where i am i can pick up where i left off.

Any additional comments?

i suggest this book to anyone who is interested in fantasty, romance and mystery. <br/>This series will always keep you guessing.

The story gets more interesting.

If you could sum up City of Ashes in three words, what would they be?

Love, truth, lies.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Valentine is my favourite character as he balances out the make you vomit love story, and he is just so evil.

Have you listened to any of Natalie Moore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first Natalie Moore narrated book I have listened to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I wouldn't. As much as I would love to see these books in film, City of Bones was mangled to badly. Some books should remain books.

City Of Ashes

This book continues the story begun in City of Bones and is, in my opinion, every bit as spellbinding as the first. Jace and Clary are beset with enemies on every side as Valantine continues his quest to claim the mortal instruments as his own. In these dark times, Jace and Clary are uncertain whom they can trust, and they must deal with personal demons of their own. Beautifully written, at times achingly powerful, this book is every bit as gripping as the first.
