I finished the series! I know this was a lot of people’s favorite of the series, but I think it may be one of my least favorite of the series. I feel things happened just to have another book, and I think this one was way to long. I found myself bored at some parts.

Overall, I love Clary and Jace, Izzy and Simon, Alec and Magnus, and all of the characters. I am happy I finished the series and I look forward to reading more of CC writing. ( )

I would have devoured this book in one day if I hadn't gone camping, therefore I didn't have the luxury of secluding myself away and just reading nonstop. So, even though I enjoyed the book, I am giving it a 3 star rating. The overall series, I'd give it a 4 star. I felt like the last book had far too many point of views and disrupted the pacing of the book and the character development. I understand the next installment is The Dark Artifices and the author wanted to create that transition for the readers but I felt that Emma's POV and the entire Blackthorn situation was counterproductive to wrapping up the stories in The Mortal Instruments. In many ways this book felt more like a prequel to The Dark Artifices and not a conclusion to The Mortal Instruments series. I'm not saying that what happened to the Blackthorn isn't important or relevant but there were a lot that could have been left out. I wanted a Mortal Instruments finale, not a Dark Artifices prelude; that's why I'm a bit disappointed in this book. Plus, I was craving a Jace & Tessa interaction and I didn't get that, but that wasn't a big deal for me. Though it warms my heart to see William Herondale referenced a few times. I like the Shadowhunter world and can't wait for the next two installments, The Dark Artifices and The Last Hours. ( )

Thank god I'm done with this series. Clare has some obscene obsession with incest that I just can't stomach. ( )

Book description
In Book 6: City of Heavenly Fire, Jace, Clary and their friends are drawn inexorably into a war that pits Heaven against Hell, angels against demons—a war that threatens to destroy our world entirely if the Shadowhunters can't end it first.
