Welcome back! This week we are tackling Chapter 13 of ‘City of Ashes’. I hope you guys are ready for all the stupidity that is sure to come.
I swear to god, all of Cassandra Clare’s characters so far have been ridiculously stupid and Jace is a prime example of this. Luke and Maia has just been attacked by a demon most likely sent by Valentine. It still hasn’t occurred to any of these numbskulls to leave Luke’s house for a more secure location. Also, why hasn’t anyone called Isabelle for backup. I don’t know about you, but this situation seems like all hands on deck type situation. I can kind understand no one trusting the Inquisitor or Maryse right now. However, it does not excuse them not calling Isabelle. I asked this earlier back in the book, but I’m going to ask it again: Why Is Isabelle Even In This Book? She’s supposed to be this bad ass whip-wielding girl and every time there is remotely any action Isabelle is nowhere to be seen.
Sorry about that tangent, but that really bugs the hell out of me. I hate wasted characters. Anywho, back to the fail of them staying at the same place they were attacked. Also, shouldn’t our experienced warriors should at least be doing some type perimeter check? Jace is just playing on the piano like he doesn’t have anything else to do. I just can’t get over how everyone how stupid everyone is in this book.
