The story of Clary, Jace, and Simon, along with their amazingly unique cast of characters continues in City of Glass, the third book in The Mortal Instruments series. In this version, readers are treated to the answers to some of those secrets about Clary and Jace's past. Again, this was very well done and highly enjoyable. I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next installment in the series. ( )

Ok! Well I was reserving judgment until I could finish the series, and...I decided that I really liked it.

*******SPOILER BELOW********













I was very happy with the ending, and I did guess from almost the beginning that Jace was NOT Clary's brother. I was also pretty sure that I recognized the real brother when he showed up. All in all a pretty fun ride as far as stories go. ( )

This one was way better than the last!

Love love love the ending to this one. The beginning was a little slow with Jace and Clary not having much dialect but as soon as it started picking up I could put it down!

Jace and Clary had some very sweet moments and your heart really goes out to them.

She laced her fingers through his. "Good Night," she whispered. With their hands clasped together like children in a fairy tale, she fell asleep beside him in the dark.



Alec finally admits that he is gay (no spoiler needed there lol) and Simon just went way of on the appeal level with me....something about vampires....grrrr.

Plenty of Valentine in this one as well as Luke and the Clave....as well as someone that you really haven't got to meet yet ;).

I can't wait for the next one! ( )

The ending may be a bit predictable, but the book was way better than the second. There was a lot more action, interspersed with love rather than overwhelmed with it. The twists and turns this book takes ties in all of the character relations and developments from the previous two books seamlessly. The story line was fueled by determination, passion, war, and even unity as the Shadowhunters, Downworlders, Angels and Demons collide. ( )

Dedication
For my mother. "I only count the hours that shine."
First words
The cold snap of the previous week was over; the sun was shining brightly as Clary hurried across Luke's dusty front yard, the hood of her jacket up to keep her hair from blowing across her face.
