To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters -- never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.
As Clary uncovers more about her family's past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadow-hunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadow-hunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he's willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her new found powers to help save the Glass City -- whatever the cost?
Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the final installment of the New York Timesbestselling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.
(Summary Thanks to Goodreads)
I have to start out by saying this has to be one of my favorite Paranormal series. If you have never heard of Cassandra Claire before reading this review please look her up. City of Glass is the third book in the Mortal Instruments Series. City of Glass has an awesome cover very eye catching, also I like that all the cover's flow with each other and have very similar aspects. I'm also glad that all our past favorite characters and also favorite paranormals are back, and as well some new characters. So let get on to the fun stuff my review.
Clary, Simon, Jace, Alec, and Isabelle are back for yet another awesome installment in the Mortal Instruments series. I'm so glad that as the series processed you can notice that Clary has been maturing. I find that Clary is stronger as a person not as oblivious, as well you can see how good she is, and she is becoming more confident in her actions. I adore the main characters especially Jace who is one of my fiction crushes, but my heart goes out to Simon poor guy keeps getting himself in sticky situation. I do adore Simon but I dislike the idea of him and Clary. Alec another awesome character I'm so glad of who he has become I feel like I have seen him grow. Isabelle who is just Isabelle. We are introduced to a new character one that I found shady from the start and his name is Sebastian. Then you have Valentine stupid, stupid Valentine. If you can find anyone who matched so well with the definition of evil it has to be hands down Valentine. One good thing is we finally understand why Clary's mother and the whole Valentine thing went down, we also see more about Clary's mom and Luke (I know I'm being a bit vague it's just I don't want to spoil the book since it was AWESOME so read it and you'll get all your questions answered).
This action packed Third novel in Clare's Mortal Instrument is my Favorite book of all time especially in this series. City of Glass is the longest book in the series and I completed it in like a couple of days of starting it. I adore Clare's imagination and how everything goes so well. The best part about imagination is writing is being able to describe it so we the reader can picture what you want us to see. I must say is that Clare had me picturing everything with her awesome description. I also like how the series came together all in this book making it action packed. All loose ends come undone in this book first the mystery to helping Clary's mom, and now the Romances as well even if some are predictable so times in life things need to be predictable so I shall not judge. Ha ha ha could also have something to do with the fact of liking the out come (I know vague again, but I mean it READ it I promise AWESOME). I can go all night about things I loved about this book and how awesome I thought it was. The problem in that is that I don't have enough space, and I don't want to spoil the book for you guys. I know I'm missing things, but I'll close this review with thank you Mrs. Clare for yet another amazing book which had me up all night because I couldn't put it down. You had me cheering, tearing up, and smiling all throughout this book so I thank you.
My blurb for this novel: "Yet another great addition to the Mortal Instruments series. This book will have you flipping pages, like Mc D's employees flip burgers. (Ha ha ha ha I crack my self up). A fun filled conclusion and maybe new beginning to a must read series."
