I was very happy with the way she ended the book.
It was a great cap to the Mortal Instruments series, and I can't wait until Clare`s next book arrives.
Written very well as all of Cassandra Clare's books are.

In my opinion, Cassandra Clare and her publishers did a great job by not sending out any advanced reading copies of CoHF - any advanced spoilers would have killed the intrigue and suspense of knowing who gets killed and who gets married. All of the 'snippits' leaked by the publisher over the last few months have been torturous. All I will say is that the final book of The Mortal Instruments series will not leave you feeling like The Twilight Saga or Sookie Stackhouse.

Love, betrayal and blood are usually a predictable mix that can be dragged on in a series like this. And in my opinion, any further rehashing of 'Clary and Jace are together' then 'outside forces keep them from really being together' (like the previous books) by extending the series past book 6 would have made money, but would have also become too predictable and boring to true Cassandra Clare fans.

Without giving away any spoilers or too much of the ending, be aware that there is a final showdown with Clary and Sebastian that, in my opinion, puts other similar novels to shame - I'm looking at you 'Twilight'. But don't skip to the final chapter by passing over the middle, you will miss too much and the twists are plentiful throughout.

CoHF feels like a nod to the writing of City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, Book 1) by being really engaging and dense with plot details for Clary, Jace, Simon, Isabelle, Alec and of course the worst brother in the world, Sebastian/Jonathan. It is slightly intimidating by the sheer number of pages, but I can attest that you can get through very easily and quickly.

Great ending to a epic series. Fully recommend this book with a big thanks to Cassandra Clare.

On one hand, there were things I absolutely loved about this installation. On the other, I was disappointed.

Let's start with the things I loved.

1. Clace. Yeah, yeah, I know people have been complaining about how "boring" they thought the characters/relationship were getting, but I never thought that. After all the angst and heartbreak they were put through, I really enjoyed that unwavering loyalty and love they shared. Call me a romantic, but I believe that sort of unshakable togetherness exists out there, and it was very nice to see it in a YA book. I didn't find them boring or tired. I found their faith in each other refreshing in the midst of all that destruction and death.

2. Jace. Because he's my favorite. He just is. I've loved his character from the first moment he came onto the page in City of Bones. I've continued throughout the series, even when I was not sure what Cassandra Clare was thinking when she did some things to his character. I loved watching him go from that closed-off, snarky, rude boy to the one he became in City of Heavenly Fire. He still had that spark and bite to him, but he was much more mature, much more at peace. I was happy that he had gotten to have that after so many years of hating himself.

3. The cave/lake scene. I'm not going to spoil by saying what this is, but those who have read know and know it was a long time coming. Beautiful.

4. All instances of Jace on fire. This was beautifully done and so...majestic? I don't know, I can't think of the right word. Cassandra Clare has a habit of describing Jace in battle as an "avenging angel." In the scenes with the heavenly fire, he truly was and it was beautiful. I loved it and felt like it was very fitting for his character.

5. Sizzy.

BEWARE: Some spoilers ahead!

Let me start out by saying that there are great books, and then there are books that stick with you for a long time. This is not one of those books. As much as I wanted it to be, it just isn't. It was a great read, but I can't honestly say that it struck a major cord with me. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it, but I just can't bring myself to give it five stars.


Cassandra Clare's writing is just perfection. Seeing the difference between City of Bones and City of Heavenly Fire is like night and day. Her writing is engaging and she pulls the reader into the story effortlessly. CoHF took a more descriptive route, as far as writing style goes. It was a little much at times, but it wasn't a major issue with me.

The plot was engaging, if a little stale at times, but the different POV's helped to break up the monotony. The book was one major build-up, but the "down moments" allowed you to have a more in-depth look into some of the characters.

The incorporation of Brother Zachariah/Jem and Tessa into the story. This is strictly because I love the Infernal Devices, and I still feel a connection to those characters. Every little piece I could get from either of those characters, I just gobbled it up. Can't wait for more of them in The Last Hours.

I will say this, I liked the incorporation of Emma into the story line. It gave readers a look into Clare's next heroine. Her story was closely related to the events that take place in CoHF, and I found myself enjoying her POV.


The ending was too perfect and anti-climactic. After everything we've endured over the past five books, I wanted an epic ending.
