Genre: YA Fantasy
Blurb (on back of book): 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 into prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.
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.
*This is actually the third book out of six. Cassandra Clare originally wanted a trilogy, but she decided to write more.
MY OPINION: *****
I think that this is the best book in the series so far!
It is really interesting. I love the continuation of the story, and all of the cliffhangers. I also like how all of the important character's point of views (POVs) were shown. Jace is by far my favorite character, though Clary is awesome too! She is such a pretty and vibrant girl, with tons of energy and determination! Jace is an annoying, but adorable guy, who is hard not to fall in love with.
The plot is really interesting! Clary has so many things that she has to do, and she must figure out how to solve everything at once.
Overall, this book was incredible, with funny characters, super emotional scenes, and many, many, times when you can really understand how the character(s) is/are feeling. I would recommend this book to all teens, middle- and high-school.
