Summary: With two of the Mortal Instruments now in Valentine’s hands, the world of the Shadowhunters teeters on the brink of civil war. Jace and the Lightwoods are recalled to Idris, the Shadowhunters’ remote and hidden home country, where a search has begun for the last of the Instruments, the Mortal Glass. Clary finds herself caught up in the chaos as the delicate social order of the Nephilim begins to shatter, pitting Downworlder against Downworlder and Shadowhunters against each other. When the City of Glass falls under attack, can Downworlders and Nephilim fight together to defeat Valentine, or will their longstanding hatred destroy them all? And when Clary discovers the unbelievable truth about her own past, can she find Jace before it’s too late?
Review:

City of Glass was the original finale for the mortal instruments series, but being so popular, fans begged Cassandra Clare to continue. This book contains many great plot twists capturing the reader. As soon as you start reading, it is impossible to stop. This book also contains great Clace (Clary and Jace) moments, as well as a huge twist that will leave you wondering ‘what’s next?’ You also see great evolution in our main characters: Clary Fray, Jace Morgenstern, Simon Lewis, Isabelle and Alec Lightwood and the high warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. The book is constantly filled with suspense, no matter what’s going on, there is always something big going on with some of the characters. After reading the first two books, I couldn’t stop myself from reading the third.
It’s probably just me but in this book I sort of did want to see Clary show a bit of a dark side, maybe join Valentine, but then that i just me. Anyway, if you’re thinking about taking a break after City of Ashes, don’t bother. Personally this was one of my favourite installments.
