City of Glass

City of Glass
Author: Cassandra Clare
pages: 541
publication date: March 24 2009

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 Times bestselling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.

City of Glass is my favorite book in the series by far. Cassandra Clare is an incredibly talented author.

City of Glass was supposed to be the last book in the Mortal instruments trilogy, but now she has decided to expand the series and we can now enjoy more time with Jace and Clary.

City of glass is such an action packed suspenseful book. The plot takes place in Idris, which sounds really beautiful. It’s a city for shadowhunters, sounds wonderful.

Although it took three books for Clary’s mother to wake up and finally prove that Jace and Clary were not brother and sister. I mean the signs were all there that they were NOT siblings. Geesh, they can freely kiss and embrace each other now. Not like it stopped them before.

There wasn’t just romance between Jace and Clary, we also had Magnus and Alec, who let me tell you, is my favorite couple. There so cute together, even though whenever I picture Magnus I picture him as a bald old man in a robe. I don’t know why but it’s weird when I read about Magnus and Alec sometimes.

Then there was Simon and him getting attention from Isabella and Maia, which I was kind of disappointed when Simon gave Clary up, I mean I know Clary was never going to love Simon, at least not in that way but I kind of like the love triangle between them.

I don’t think Cassandra has put as much detail into city of glass, sure we know about what the characters look like but Idris really wasn’t explained in detail. I can’t picture the place at all. That to me is a big disappointment to me when I can’t picture in my mind what the place or character looks like. It’s the smallest detail that counts.

Jace was more emotional in this book then he ever was. I think his tough and emotional walls are crumbling down.
I thought the ending ended perfectly. Everything was tied together very nicely, although I would like to know some more things, like how did Valentine kill the inquisitor when he was a projection. Maybe the answer will be in the next book.

I have bought City of Fallen Angels and I can’t wait to read it, but yet at the same time I have no idea what’s going to happen in the next following books.

Valentine is dead; Jace is with Clary, What’s going to happen next.

5/5 stars
