Title: City Of Glass
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publication: Walker Books
Released Date: March 24, 2009
Pages: 491 pages
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?
Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third installment of the New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.
This book took me quite awhile (a few days) to finally get my head back into this series. There were a few scenes that made me slightly confused and I had to remember back from the last books.
Yes!! I finally know Jace and Clary’s connection/relationship and where they stand. I have been dying to read and find out what happens next but the thickness of this series intimidates me. It still is.
I just knew that something is wrong about that Sebastian guy. And deep down, I was right but I didn’t have expected that.
The latter part of the story, I was seriously hooked and were anticipating what would happen next. This book is definitely better than the books before.
For now, I need to take a break from demons, wars, nephilims, downworlders and Valentine.
