So honestly, I was considering giving only 2 stars.
This book was just so much longer than it needed to be. I don't know if I would have even finished it if I didn't listen to the audiobook. I probably wouldn't even get so far in this series. And there comes my rating problem, which is not only concerning this book but most of the books that I listen to. Because I do something else while listening, I don't get as bored, which means more positive ratings or finishing books/series I might have otherwise given up on.

So, back to this book. The ending was ok. Like it didn't make much sense in some ways. But I didn't hate it. I didn't care much about our main star duo, but some side characters grew on me. If I only read the MI series, I would likely be done with the whole world, but since I quite enjoyed ID I do feel like trying out the other trilogies. ( )

the 2nd part of this series was much much better than the 1st

I'm pretty sad to be leaving Jace and Clary behind. Possbily reading all 6 books in the space of a few months wasn't my best ever idea. ( )

If you are a fan of the entire mortal instrument world then you will love this book. I really did. If you only have read the mortal instrument then this series will require a lot of patience and outside knowledge because it gives spoilers and needs knowledge of the previous series and basically sets up the next series. I loved it in so many ways. My fav character was simon and always has been and always will be. I also grew to both love isabella and his relationship and also alec and magnus. I also loved seeing tessa and jem again and i am excited to see where the next series goes. Overall it is five star book if you only read this one series then it is like a four star book. ( )

Book description
In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary's own brother.

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris - but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee - even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned...

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!
