City of Glass - Review

This week's review is the third book in the Mortal Instrument's series City of Glass by Cassandra Clare.

Back Cover:

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 her best friend, 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 Times bestselling The Mortal Instruments.

My Take:

This was my favorite of the three books!!! These are DEFINITELY best read all three together. There are three more after this (not all of them are out yet) but at least this third book is a good stopping spot.

This book takes you to the capital of the Shadowhunter's world. A fascinating adventure! Clary has become more confident and sure of her Shadowhunter's abilities. She has become a very dominant heroine yet still quite vulnerable. Of course she has Simon and Jace to look after her and they are just so yummy!!

Definitely a fun read! I'd recommend them! This one has a couple foul words in it, but for the most part is pretty clean. Either way, I LOVED this series!!
