Thank you Random House U.K for the review copy.

While Falling To Ash did not have that one-of-the-best-books-I-have-ever-read effect on me,it wasn't half bad.The story had a relatively good character buildup,and the narration was pretty good as well.The book also has a drop-dead-gorgeous cover which everyone can already see but it's just that the book did not actually reach my expectations.Don't get me wrong.The book is quite well written.It's just that it had so much more potential.If only the book had a better plot,I would have given it a five-star rating on the spot.

What I liked most about the book was probably the character building.I loved the voice of the main character,Moth.She was the one character who made my day with her good sense of humor.And there is this other character who reminded me of some good old times.That would be Jace.Even though he's really different from Cassandra Clare's Jace in The Mortal Instruments series,he still reminded me of him.Reading about the new Jace A.K.A wannabe vampire hunter according to Moth was an absolute delight.
