Review: Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare

Book description: 
From #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Cassandra Clare comes the first novel in a brand-new trilogy where evil hides in plain sight and love cuts deeper than any blade.

Cordelia Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, a warrior trained since childhood to battle demons. When her father is accused of a terrible crime, she and her brother travel to London in hopes of preventing the family’s ruin. Cordelia’s mother wants to marry her off, but Cordelia is determined to be a hero rather than a bride. Soon Cordelia encounters childhood friends James and Lucie Herondale and is drawn into their world of glittering ballrooms, secret assignations, and supernatural salons, where vampires and warlocks mingle with mermaids and magicians. All the while, she must hide her secret love for James, who is sworn to marry someone else.
But Cordelia’s new life is blown apart when a shocking series of demon attacks devastate London. These monsters are nothing like those Shadowhunters have fought before—these demons walk in daylight, strike down the unwary with incurable poison, and seem impossible to kill. London is immediately quarantined. Trapped in the city, Cordelia and her friends discover that their own connection to a dark legacy has gifted them with incredible powers—and forced a brutal choice that will reveal the true cruel price of being a hero.

         My review:

Chain of Gold is pure magic! I was utterly captivated from the very start. I am a huge Cassandra  Clare fan, but this may just be my favorite of all of her books yet! I like that there are familiar names and places, yet this is a brand new adventure with some brand new faces. All of the characters are very intriguing and distinct. I am already torn about which I love more. There are so many things to love about Chain of Gold... friendship, adventure, fantasy, romance, deception, scandal, and of course fighting demons lol. Sometimes I have trouble remembering people and details of a series between one book and the next books release, but I truly feel that this book is so memorable that I will have absolutely no problem recalling the storyline. I am so looking forward to reading the next book. Big A++ for Chain of Gold! 

** I received an advanced copy of this book through bookishfirst. This is my honest and voluntary review.**
