Publisher Comments:

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 final installment of the New York Times bestselling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.

Review:

"An experienced storyteller, Clare moves the plot quickly to a satisfying end." Booklist

Review:

"[T]he action never stops, and the uniting of werewolves, vampires, fairies, and Shadowhunters creates a tantalizing quartet of characters sure to interest all Stephanie Meyer readers. Add this series to your list of fantasy books with strong female characters..." VOYA

Review:

"As lurid battle scenes cut to the requisite shocking revelations and angst-drenched reunions, readers will almost hear the John Williams music swelling....[S]o much fun." Kirkus Reviews

Although this is written for teens, this is a very good book. Cassandra Clare has come up with a wonderful world and a keep you on the edge of your seat story line. The conflict between the main characters (Jace, Clary, and Simon) keeps you guessing and even laughing at times. I would recommend this as a good teen book and an easy read for adults, BUT definitely worth it. I love it!!!!

With 2 of the Mortal Instruments (the cup and the sword) already in Valentine Morgensterns possession, the main obstacle to his plan was finding the 3rd (the mirror). All th shadow hunters needed to get to Alicante in Idris to see how the Clave had decided to handle the information that Valentine was not only still alive, but was still hoping to cleanse the world of demons, downworlders and any who did not follow in his own beliefs of how that should be accomplished. Arriving in Alicante with the main goal of finding the wizard (Ragnor Fell) that could help her mother, Clary (Clarrisa Fray) discovered that no one wanted her there so she took the help of the only person who was offering, Sebastian Verlac. With Jace otherwise occupied, and Simmon thought to still be in New York, the familiarity she felt with Sebastian was almost comforting at first. Learn more details about Jace’s upbringing, see pieces of Jocelyn and Valentines history, hear about more and more secrets that have been kept for far too long. The Angels once helped the Nephilim, but can that save them now?

Book 3 ….. Fast paced, exciting, ever changing, action packed fun. I didn’t want to put it down till the end. As the final installment of the Mortal Instruments series this book was very involved, the need to have read the first 2 of the series (City of Bones and City of Ashes) not just to know the characters, but the main story line is continual. The characters gained depth - more personality and definition, even Valentine. The conclusion wrapped thing up (with one exception) and left things - characters were they should be and with who they should be with. I really enjoyed this whole series even though it was labeled as a young adult, I found the action, adventure and suspense very intriguing and the romance aspect at times frustrating but always sweet and touching.

I have yet to read the third in this series but the first two were amazing. I'm confident that the third will not disappoint because Clare is such a talented writer. I can't wait to find out what happens between Jace and Clary!
