Author: Cassandra Clare

Published: March 24, 2009

Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult, Romance

Summary: To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters – never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family’s past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he’s willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City – whatever the cost?

My Review: It’s official, I’m addicted again. I was pretty close to dropping this series again, simply because I have so many other books to read. I may or may not be multi tasking when it comes to a few books right now, but this series has gotten back into the spotlight.

I just love them so much.


So basically this book is everything. I forgot how many times my ‘favorite book in the series’ title switches around while reading. It’s a lot, if you were wondering.

Honestly, I’m probably just going to keep repeating exactly what I said in the past two reviews, so I’m just going to keep it short and sweet.

I loved it.

It was amazing. As usual.

And the ending was perfect. It was probably one of the best endings thus far in this series.


So I’ll be taking a break from the series for now because I just picked up An Ember in the Ashes. I’m super excited to read this one; I read the first five chapters and it was really good.

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading and happy reading!
