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 the New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.
I have very mix feelings about this book (and series in general). I like the characters and love triangle but I think I’m over the fantasy worlds. Vampires, Werewolves and shadowhunters worlds are starting to fade into the horizon. With that being said I wanted to read this book to see if Jace and Clary get a happy ending. I mean, they really are the only reason I’m reading the series. Out of all the books, this was my favorite. I wish she would have stopped with this one. But she didn’t.
As for the narrator of the book, I enjoyed her. She made it super easy to get lost in the unknown world. I felt like I was along side for all the crazy adventures the crew was going on. When they fought Valentine I felt like I was right along side them with my rune, ready to die.
