This was definitely better than the preceding two, though the series still didn't wow me. ( )

Full review up on the blog !!

My favorite of the series so far. Proper review to come once I pick all my feelings up off the floor. ( )

It's very entertaining. I'm still a pretty big fan of the series and the world overall, but a lot of it steadily gets more and more ridiculous. The romance, for instance, and all the tortured souls and people in internal agony. It doesn't help that the ending is so sappy. It's basically a giant soap opera but with a lot of wars and stuff.

But it's still entertaining. I enjoy it. It's definitely one of the better urban fantasy YA series, that's for sure. ( )

Best book in the series so far. Action, suspense, intrigue, twists, & turns. Good character, plot, & storyline development. ( )

Background: Clary and crew are planning to travel to the City of Glass to save her mother. Jace plots to leave Clary behind, making her illegally enter the city and getting Simon into a mess of trouble with the Shadowhunters. The Clave is trying to decide what to do about the Valentine situation that is on their heels and Clary and Jace learn about their pasts.

Review: I really liked this story line especially because of the Clary/ Jace developments, but I thought this was also the last book of a trilogy and I was misinformed. I think that the story line could have ended where it is. Again Clare uses the word incredulous all the time and it is bothersome, but there is also a lot less action in this book. They talk A LOT, and then once the action and war began the book was about over... I don't like when there is that much build up to a rather disappointing end.
I loved how Clare told us the pasts of Jace/Clary/Sebastian and how they were all linked together but I also felt like there were some wholes that I couldn't quite put a finger on.

I am interested to read the next installment to see how the story progresses further, since I believe this could have been the end... ( )

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.
