Favorite of the series,
This review is from: City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, Book 3) (Paperback)
City of Glass is third book in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. This was supposed to be the last book in The Mortal Instruments Trilogy, but the author decided to extend the series three more books. In all honesty I'm glad that there's going to be more books because I'm kind of addicted to Jace Wayland the world of the shadowhunters!
Clary has finally found out what needs to be done to save her mother, all she needs to do is travel to Alicante (home city of the shadowhunters). The problem is that some people... mainly Jace don't want her to go, so she's left behind. Clary then needs to find her own way to Alicante because she knows that she's one of the only ones who can save her mom, and well she finds her way there. Clary and the rest of the shadowhunters then find themselves in the midst of a war that might change everything.
I really don't know what to say about this book that would properly explain how much I loved it. This was the longest book in the series, but I didn't notice because of how compelling the storyline was. There are a few new characters introduced, some casualties, and a whole lot of Jace/Clary frustration. The "final" battle in this book was epic, and we finally get some much needed answers! The character development in this book was great, everyone has grown so much since the first book.
This was my favorite book in the series, and I can't wait to read the next book, City of Fallen Angels. I really want to wait and read the next two books until the final ones released, but I honestly don't think I have that much willpower. I figure I have four Cassandra Clare books on my bookshelf left to read, and I think I can make them last awhile.
