City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments 3) by Cassandra Clare

Blurb: 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 third installment of bestselling series the Mortal Instruments.

My Rating: 5/5

My Review: Book three in The Mortal Instruments is a bittersweet wrap up to most of the problems faced so far. I actually thought it ended there, and was pleasantly surprised to discover book four in suggested readings on Scribd. I’ll be reading that one as soon as I get a slow moment. Book three was full of action and plot twists, and the author held up the momentum from the other books. If I had to find one thing wrong with it, I would say that no real fighting happens in the streets during the invasion like what would have been described in book one where all the serious demon fights occurred. However, the intensity of the ending more than makes up for it. Again, I highly recommend this series.
