Chain of Gold Cassandra Clare Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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. Chain of Gold is a Shadowhunters novel.

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.

User reviews about this book

  • Very good

    By Tam4Eva
    I liked the story that she’s spinning here. Cordelia is a good heroine, and I think Lucie is hilarious. Anna is perfectly scandalous! As for James, I like him. He reads, which is good enough for me. But, Grace Blackthorn is enchanting him. Quite literally, I think. How else would you explain Matthew and Charles. Speaking of Matthew, I’m pretty sure he’s either in love with Lucie, or James. Either one. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next one! Revision: All the characters in this plot are so well rounded, I can read them.. well, like a book! Here are some things I figured out: Grace is not in love with anyone. She merely watches out for her own well-being I could not figure out who Matthew was in love with, but now I know. He might be in love with Cordelia, but he will end up with Lucie. The bracelet that Grace gave James is the source of the love he feels toward her. It was when she asked for it back that his feelings started to fade and when he got it back, the feelings came back in full force. James will somehow become possessed in the next book. Lucie will try to raise Jesse from the dead, but it either won’t work, or he won’t be the same. Thomas is in love with Alastair. In the future, when Cordelia is ready to pass down Cortana, she will give it to baby Carstairs, who will have blond hair and brown eyes, pretty sure. Jace got his golden eyes from James That’s all.

  • Cassandra Clare did it again

    By artisticchic
    “An amazing story Cassandra Clare created once again.”
  • Incredible!

    By Paigie Wagie
    Wow - Cassandra Clare really knows how to keep you entertained. First of all, the cover of this book is stunning. Set in the same world as the rest of her Shadowhunter books, Chain of Gold follows Cordelia, Lucie, James, and the rest of their "Merry Thieves" friends as they tackle a new insurgence of demons. The group faces incredible odds as the adults in their lives are slow to action - leaving them to take up the task of killing their demonic foes. This is an incredible book which ties into the Shadowhunter world beautifully. We see familiar faces and familiar names, which is exciting for those who have read her previous series. I adored the romance - although at times it was a bit heartbreaking. Clare also wrote nice sub-plots for some of the characters which have kept me hooked and guessing (especially as I wait for the next in the series...). This is a definite must read and a 10/10 addition to her already fascinating world and I can't wait to see where it leads!

  • Another Amazing novel

    By ArtemisSage
    I cannot express the way Cassandra Claire weaves her tails to pull you in and keep you locked in for a wild ride. I am anxious for the next books in her series. They are wonderful tales!
  • I need the sequel!

    By mare2704
    I really love this book. Can we please get the sequel sooner? It is so good! I love Cordelia and Matthew and Anna and Alastair.
  • Finally!

    By Rose101234
    This is a new book in a series that’s set in the shadowhunter world in the 1900s. What was really the most intriguing part to me were the characters. All of them have interesting stories. The plot was captivating and the antagonist will be one to be remembered, that’s for sure. In all of Clare’s books, I believe this is the one where I love both the characters and the plot, not simply just one or the other. The relationships between James, Thomas, Matthew and Christopher is one of the best interactions, and the female characters are all so fiercely strong in their unique ways. And the end had me leaping from my seat. Overall, this book has exceeded my expectations and I cannot wait for the next one.
