3.75*
This was a satisfying conclusion to The Mortal Instruments series. I appreciate that Cassandra Clare isn't afraid to kill people in her books but part of me wanted this to be a little more "real" and have the little group of main characters not entirely pull through to the very end. While I don't necessarily want people to die in the books that I read, I also appreciate when books are realistic when it comes to topics like battles and war... and let's be real - the main characters were teenagers with less fighting experience than the average adult Shadowhunter. So how do none of them end up dead when so many were lost by the end of this book series? Sigh. Can't quite get myself to give it a full 4* because of that. I liked the overall growth of most of the characters from the first book of the series to now and also liked that there was less of a focus on Jace and Clare's relationship and more of a focus on Sebastion and how they were going to overcome him and his evil plotting.

I really liked the whole series. Why I didn't give this all 5 stars was because I hate when the next series is set up this obviously in the last installment of another series. Nevertheless I will read that series as well, I think... ( )

considering all the things I could've read instead of this, I DEFINITELY hate myself rn. ( )

More like 4.5. This is a great finish to a great series. There are some things I would change, particularly with Sebastian, but Clare definitely made up for the last two books, which, looking back now, are probably better than I remember them being. I have lived with this story and this world for five years and plan never to forget any of it, as much as I can. ( )

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.
