This should be pretty obvious and it's been 7 years since this series started but I'll spell it out anyway: Although I try pretty hard to avoid spoilers in my reviews, there will be spoilers for the previous books. So if you're like me and lived under a rock for the last 7 years, start with the first one.
Clary has learned an awful lot since her first introduction to the Shadowhunter world in City of Bones. Not just an ordinary mundane, Clary is the daughter of Shadowhunters which makes her one too. She still has so many questions and she's found her mother but she can't get any answers out of her because she's in a magically induced coma. Stuck between living a "normal" life with her best friend Simon, who seems to be becoming more than friendly, and her forbidden romantic feelings for her newly discovered brother Jace, Clary is a big ball of confusion. Clary would like to leave it all behind, but she needs Jace and the Shadowhunters to track down Valentine and hopefully save her mother.
