City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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. (from book)
In this 3rd book of The Mortal Instruments, is an awesome book. I could not put it down, as it is for most of Cassandra Clare's books.
There are some heartbreakingly beautiful scenes in this book. The characters became more developed and more endearing, especially Jace. His sarcastic wit is certainly present in this book; however, he is no longer hiding behind his carefully constructed facade. His torment over Clary is very obvious from the very first chapter. You really ache for him, you really do. Some great things happen in this book, some questions answered, and then more questions come up. It is one of my favorite of the series so far. All the characters are developing nicely and add a few new ones too.
I highly recommend this book, to anyone who likes the books so far, or any of Cassandra Clare’s work. But if you have not read any in this series so far (The Mortal Instruments) then start with City of Bones, Book 1, and then City of Ashes, then this one.
Also, check out Cassandra’s other series that is a Prequel to this one, called The Infernal Devices, it has the anscesters of the characters of this series, and a few immortal characters who are actually IN The Mortal Instruments, Like Magnus Bane to name one.
