City Of Glass By Cassandra Clare

This is my review of City Of Glass By Cassandra Clare


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 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.

Review: So first i had heard a lot about these books, some people loved them others hated them, while reading the previous two books (City Of Bones and City Of Ashes)i thought the series was ok but nothing special, but no matter what i did i wanted to find out what happened next, so i went and got the next book City Of Glass, and i have to say this is by far the best book in the series and i absolutely loved it. It seemed to flow a lot better then the previous two and it gave us more information and more conclusions, there were lots of twists and turns in this book which you would of never seen coming which just makes it a lot better. People who are probably saying this happens in the previous books, well it does but it just seem to flow better in this book. I honestly have to say that Clare has done a brilliant job to bring this whole new race of Shadowhunters into our world and it is fascinating to see how she does this.

Okay, so now i want to talk about characters. First of all, Clary, i absolutly love her, she is a great heroine and she is so real, and you just have to feel sorry for her in this book, she is also very fierce even though she is not trained to be a shadowhunter and definatly thinks about others before herself. The other thing that i like about her is reading about how she struggles to find out how she feels about Jace, is it love or is it just a crush that really shouldn't be happening. She also has to fight her normal life and enter the Shadow hunter world where everything is so different, to find a cure for her mother while also preparing everyone for the fight with her father Valentine. Okay, so now we will talk about Jace the hot, hot brother of Clary, well lets just say we have another arrogant bad boy who has come to steal our hearts, but its too bad for us as he too is also struggling with his feelings for Clary. But at the same time he is preparing himself to go off and kill Valentine alone. Who Next? Oh Yes, theres Clarys Best friend who just turns out to be a vampire, and he has to struggle to find someone else to be with while watching Clary and Jace struggle with there own relationship problems. While also being the only Vampire who has ever been able to walk in the sun and everyone wants a piece of him. Then there is the Lightwoods, the beautiful Isabelle who looks fragile but is fierce underneath as all the demons who she has killed know. Then theres her gay brother Alec, the adult as he likes to say, he is one of my favourite characters, he is also as fierce as his sister but he is coming to terms with his gay relationship with Magnus Bane. And Magnus Bane, i have to say that even though he is the high warlock he is absolutly hilarious.

Other all i loved this book and i definatly recommend this book, but you definatly have to read the previous two books first if not it wont make sense at all. Cassandra Clare has done a brilliant job with this book and i will definatly be reading the next one, City Of Fallen Angels which is out next year. So why dont you go buy them :D
