Finally!! The epic conclusion is here!! My only complaint is the lack of finality. After 6 books you want there to be the feeling that the story has ended. The world will return to a new sense of peace, at least for awhile. New stories will always emerge just as there were decades of peace between Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices series) and City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments series). Frustratingly, I felt that City of Heavenly Fire was almost focused more on setting up for Cassandra Clare's new shadowhunter series The Dark Artifices than concluding The Mortal Instruments. There was just too much "putting the cart before the horse" for me to give it five stars but still very exciting and full of laughs and tears. Worth reading!

City of Heavenly Fire. How do I begin to describe this book? This book is flawless. Well, as close to flawless as a book can get. It was the perfect conclusion to The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. From the action to the suspense to the character development, all of it was on point and kept me hooked until I finished the book (which may have been a very bad thing, considering my copy had arrived during finals week). Not to mention the fact that this book is huge (725 pages)!

The plot, oh my. I have virtually no words to describe it. Whatever I was expecting from this book, it wasn’t this. It was better. There isn’t much I can say about the plot itself without spoiling anything, but I can say that there are a lot of twists - some of those ending happily, others ending in intense feels. Most of the loose ends have been tied up, though there is an introduction to some new characters that will be appearing in The Dark Artifices.

And let’s not forget the characters. Though the timeline in the series is only about six months, I feel like all the characters have grown up and matured since the first book. The character development is amazing.

Overall, I am giving this book a five out of five. Yes, a perfect score! There were no extremely awkward parts to read in terms of poor writing. The characters were all well developed. The book held me right to the end with its perfection.
