So I finished reading City of Bones and downloaded City of Ashes onto my Kindle. I read the first chapter and was incredibly confused. It also revealed pretty much everything that happened in the rest of the book, so nothing was a surprise. After I finished, I downloaded City of Glass. As I read the first chapter, I started having deja vu. Turns out the wrong first chapter is in the Kindle edition of City of Ashes - it's actually the first chapter of City of Glass. So not only have I still not read the actual first chapter of City of Ashes, but the entire book was spoiled for me. Did this happen to anyone else? I'm kind of angry about it.
The same thing happened on the Barnes and Noble e reader application. I was so confused until I found this posting. It ruined everything; I'm really upset. Everything was totally spoiled. I finally did some more searching, and found out that what is the second chapter in our versions (about Maia), is the real first chapter. Somehow, The Portal just accidently got added in.
I feel like we should get refunded, or something! Within the first page of the "chapter", I knew Simon was a Vampire already!!! It really sucked!
