This book is great, awesome, anything like that. You can't compare any book to this one. Cassandra Clare did a great job with City of Glass. She did great with taking you into the story and making it feel like your actually right there fighting with other shadowhunters. Of course if your thinking about reading this (which you should) you should read all of the Mortal Instruments.

This is is beyond GREAT!!! I loved this book. I hated it because the two main characters couldn't be together because they was brother and sister, i loved this book because it had a ending that i actually wanted to Happen.!!!

this third book in the trilogy is just as amazing as the first and the second. It begins a week after the 2nd ended, and by then Jace has become completely desperate to protect Clary from any harm at all. he convinces himself that the only way to keep her safe is to keep her away from him and any other shadowhunters. She doesn't understand why he can't stand to be around her anymore, and doesn't realize that he is suffering the exact same thing she is- but i wont give it away. just trust me that it is the perfect ending to probably the best fictional series and epic love story i have ever read.

You could wish for a better, more suspensful ending to a great series.  You must start with Book #1 to get here.  Loved the build-up to the end, just when you think you know what's going on, you get a surprise.  The only downfall...this is the end of the series.  I know that she has a spin-off series coming out in 2010, I will be reading those too!

I will read this again!

Wow! I just finished this series and its
like wow! amazing, this series will NOT disappoint anyone! I can re-read
this series many times and I would not stop loving this series! i cant
believe it finished but an amazing end to the story, I love Jace's
character.....and I still cant believe it finished! Anyone who reads
this series will LOVE it! this is sooo a MUST MUST MUST! READ =)

To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the
ancestral home of the Shadowhunters -- never mind that enter-ing 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
Shadow-hunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his
power to destroy all Shadow-hunters 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?

P.S. : The parentheses are my thoughts as I write this…

P.P.S. : Lot’s of spoilers in this review; couldn’t help myself

City of Glass is the third installment in the loved Mortal Instruments series written by awesome author Cassandra Clare. Also, it was the biggest in the series (Sorry, I felt like I need to add that).


This time, the setting is in the City of Glass (like the book’s title!!), or Idris, the home of the Shadowhunters if you prefer, more precisely in Alicante. Clary and Jace still love each other even though they are brother and sister *BIGGEST SPOILER EVER!*, but yet, they find, near the end, that they aren’t. *alright, now it’s done, you did good not reading it* Almost Everyone is there: from Magnus Bane, to Simon (yep, even though he’s a vampire and they aren’t allowed in Idris, he thought, well I think I prefer going there and getting imprisoned by some crackpot old fool then dying killed by demons; I understand him.), Luke (looks like they decided to break the law, then why not break it as much as they can, right?) and Clary (she’s there illegally; she didn’t get the permission to go there; bad Clary!). Seems like they are all baddies! (Skyscraper!!! Ooops, sorry, I’m listening to Skyscraper by Demi Lovato (covered by Cimorelli)).


The characters evolved a lot in the book; Clary grew up more and was unhappy a lot with Jace, as was Jace with Clary. *little spoiler* Alec and Magnus Bane finally got together and kissed, eeeeeep!!!! I am so Team Malec or something *little spoiler is done*. What pained me the most is that *spoiler* Max, the little guy, died *spoiler’s done*.


The writing also was way better than City of Bones and City of Ashes; I really felt transported to the scenes; as if I were there. It was fast-paced just enough. I hope City of Fallen Angels is going to be as good.


The Mortal Instruments series looks wonderful on my shelves and the covers keep being beautiful. I wonder what’ll be the fifth book’s cover…


5/5 roses

It's a great ending, but as we all know it's not! So we'll have to wait and see if she's able to top this one for "City of Heavenly Fire"

I read this about a week ago and the reason I’m posting the review now is that I didn’t know where to start without spoilers. There may end up being very few in here. I feel like this one has been the best in the series so far. Almost all the mysteries have been solved, even the new ones introduced in this book.
The characters develop even more. I gain a new appreciation for Clary in this novel. She gets some guts and stands up for what she believes in and lets the people around her know how she’s felling, which is something she lacked in the previous books. She developed nicely. Poor Simon though, he gets just bad deal after bad deal now that he’s a vampire, until the very end. He also gets some guts and sticks up for himself to the head vampire. Almost forgot Valentine, this book just proves how even more corrupted and wacky he is.
The plot was good and summed up/ solve the things I was wondering, I kinda had a feeling the Clary and Jace weren’t siblings, but I never guessed how. She had come up with such a creative way for this to be true, I mean who would’ve guessed what happened (cant tell you, it would be a spoiler;)) It’s also pretty action packed and not all romance and that kinda thing.
The only reason this doesn’t get a 5 out of five stars is because I was able to guess some of what was going to happen. Other than that the book was great and I recommend it to everyone. Im going to have my brother read some of it to see if he’ll like it because I think he will.
