This is book 2 in the Mortal Instruments series. This book was published in 2008 by Margret K. McElderry Books. This book is Young Adult (urban) fantasy. The book is 453 pages long with lettering that is considerably smaller than the first book. It took me about 6/7 hours to read this book, and this was in among doing things. I gave this book a 5 star rating and it deserves every star!
