City of Glass (Book 3)

"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 Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters 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 newfound 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"

WOW! Talk about a lot of information and action. I liked City of Ashes but I loved City of Glass! The resolution between Jace and Clary's situation was great to finally have and although you knew if there was going to be that plot line, that there would be that kind of solution. You just didn't know how and I kind of liked how Clare wrote it and brought that plot into the book.  Also, Simon's role in the book finally really made a lot of sense to me and he was no longer that annoying tag along character, that I secretly wished would be killed off. I was pretty impressed with the whole book and cannot wait to read more! I know this review is short, but I don't have A LOT to critique about the book, I just simply enjoyed it.


  1. Yaaay! Glad to hear you liked CoG! Are you going to read City of Fallen Angels next? Simon starts playing an even bigger role in the next books! :)

  2. I would LOVE to but my library doesn't have it in yet!
