I absolutely loved this book. The world building was amazing and turn of the century London made for an atmospheric and evocative setting. I loved the characters and became attached to them quickly. I particularly liked the characters of Cordelia, Lucie and Anna. The plot was engaging and complex with a chilling and clever enemy. I whipped through this 582 book like lightning. I couldn't put it down. There is no doubt that Cassandra Clare is a major talent in the fantasy genre. You don't have to read the Infernal Devices series first to understand Chain of Gold although I'm sure it would enrich your reading experience. I can't wait for the next installment in the series as there are definitely some unresolved problems.
About This Item
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.

Chain of Gold Review
I've read most of the shadow hunter series books and I really liked this one compared to others! I like Tessa, I really liked the clockwork books not sure if it was the time area or that I liked the characters more or that it was the first books I read but im looking forward to the rest of this series out so I can reread them both together! There was times in this book when I found myself bored but not much compared to the last one I read, but I also always end up putting off reading these books until I have to finish them quickly lol so that may be it This is a book I really do want to reread with the clockwork series though, since I feel its been awhile since Ive read them and don't remember all the characters as well a I would if I did and would probably get more out of this book!
I love Cassandra Claire she is an amazing author. Its Wal-Mart that does not know how to get things ready for pick uo. I preorder the book back in December and I still havent got any information about when to pick it up. Next time I will be going to books a million they have had it on the shelf from day 1.
