I wouldn’t consider myself a patient person normally. Especially not when it comes to sequels, movies, tv or books, for that matter. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare, was not an exception. I had borrowed the other two in the Mortal Instruments series, from the local library. When I found I was 11th in line for the third and final book, I got impatient. Everywhere I went they had the third book. I resisted for about 4 days from buying it. Then I caved.
To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters — never mind that enter-ing the city without permission is against the Law, and breakingthe 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.
Just like the others, I enjoyed this from start to finish. The questions were cleared up, and everything came to a close. The twists were a little obvious, but in most stories they are. Over all it was enjoyable and intriguing. I’d recommend it to anyone who liked Twilight and likes a little fantasy now and then.
