Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A #1 New York Times Bestseller!

The Shadowhunters must catch a killer in Edwardian London in this dangerous and romantic sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Chain of Gold, from New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Cassandra Clare. Chain of Iron is a Shadowhunters novel.

Cordelia Carstairs seems to have everything she ever wanted. She’s engaged to marry James Herondale, the boy she has always loved; she has a new life in London with her best friend Lucie; and she bears the sword Cortana, a legendary hero’s blade.

But the truth is far grimmer. Cordelia’s marriage is a lie, arranged to save her reputation, while James remains in love with the Grace Blackthorn. Cortana burns her when she touches it. And a serial murderer is targeting the Shadowhunters of London, killing under cover of darkness, then vanishing without a trace.

Now Cordelia, James, and Lucie must follow the trail of the killer through the city’s most dangerous streets. All the while, each is keeping a shocking secret: Lucie, that she is attempting to raise the dead; Cordelia, that she has sworn a dangerous oath of loyalty to a mysterious power; and James, that he himself may be the killer they seek.

Slightly Smiling Face“This one was much better, there was more action, still some slow parts, but I love the relationships forming and progressing. I think Lucie and Jesse’s relationship is kind of weird but I am loving it. I really hate Grace she just needs to leave. My favorite character is probably Alastair and also Matthew. I really didn’t care for the almost ending part, but I love the quick 180 twist at the very end. Although the miscommunication trope is annoying to me I like how this played out. I’m curious how this is going to end and what is going to happen with the characters.”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“i feel like the pacing felt better in this book rather than the previous one. still, i find the characters i could not root for. i found the love triangle set up between james, cordelia and matthew rather odd and forced; i felt like cordelia and matthew were better suited as friends given their past dynamic, and the whole bracelet schtick between grace and james annoyed the heck out of me. at this point i feel like the plot is a bit convoluted from the large amount of characters involved in the book, as well as their respective problems, that i wonder how cassie would wrap up the series through chain of thorns. however due to the lack of characters i could root for, i'm still debating whether i should drop this series altogether or push through.”
