I really have to stop reading books out by the pool. When I do this, especially with the good books, I forget about the thing called the "sun" and I end up getting roasted. I should've known better yesterday when I sat down to read Cassandra Clare's CITY OF GLASS. I should've known that I was not going to be able to put down the book, and now, unlike Simon who is not affected by the sun, I am a little bit burned.

It has been one really long - as well as crazy, heartbreaking, exhilarating, and anxiety-filled - month for Clary. She has been one busy girl - mixing it up with vampires, werewolves, and fairies, fighting demons, and falling in love completely and totally. Like I said, it has been one helluva month for Clary.

When we last saw her, both Clary and Jace were reeling from the fact that they were brother and sister. I think you were able to hear a collective moan of "oh no" across the country when everyone reading the book got to that part. On top of that, her mother was in a coma and Simon, her BFF, was turned into a vampire. Seriously, can anything else go wrong?

Welcome to the final chapter in THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS trilogy.

The trip has been planned. Everyone is going to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters. Clary was going to save her mother, learn more about her past. Life was going to be good once again. However, keep in mind the saying "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry"....

So what goes wrong? For starters, Jace doesn't want her to go, claiming that it is too dangerous, especially if people, the wrong people, find out what she can do with runes.

I just finished this book and OH MY!!! It is amazing! I just didn't want to stop reading, very hard to put down. I knew it would probably be good because the previous two in the series I really liked a lot, but wow this just blew my expectations away. What an amazing story. After reading the Twilight series I thought it would be hard for me to find another series that I could love that much, but this matched it! What an amazing writer, you are living with the characters and feel what they feel. So much happens in City of Glass and you are left feeling satisfied and I couldn't have imagined a better ending myself.

This is the last book of the trilogy The Mortal Instruments. Clary must go to the City of Glass in order to wake up her mother but Jace doesn't want her there.
Clary will discover secrets that they were kept in dark for years.... but Jace is not willing to help her. Clary finds Sebastian who is too eager to help her but he is hiding something.......

Love it, love it!!!!!!!!!!! It was a good closure for the story.
I loved Alec in this one. At the previous books he was so into Jace and against Clary that kind of made me not like him but in this book you see him being more mature and willing to face his fears.

In this book we see Isabelle being more emotional. We can see that behind the Shadowhunter gear she's just a girl and even though she can handle everything (expect from cooking.. lol ) and be strong, she's fragile just as she's strong.

Simon. Ok, I usually don't like a character who goes between a couple, and that's the case here, but I really liked him. In the previous books he was trying to win Clary over Jace but in this book he realises that he can have her only as a friend and that's what he does..... not like Jacob in Twilight.. (These books has nothing to do with Twilight but if you have read them you know what I mean by Jacob insisting that he was the one for Bella... huh!)

Anyway that's one of the reasons that I love Simon, that he understands what Clary wants and steps aside to stand by her as a friend.... the other reason is that now he's more involved in the story, he's stronger now and ready to have some action and take responsibilities.

Jace. What can I say about Jace. I can start from how much I love him!!!!!!!! :)
He is very strong as a character and deep.

Clary’s life has done a complete one-eighty since the start of the series. Now she is full immured in the Shadowhunter world. She and the Lightwoods’ are traveling to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters, the place where she can find the medicine that she needs to save her mother. Yet Jace is standing in the way. For some reason, that Clary cannot identify he is fully against the idea of her coming. Clary, whom never listens to anyone, saw that Jace did not want his little sister trailing after him as a threat to her ego, and made it her life goal to get to the city. And so begins the trials and tribulations of Clary and Jace’s new adventures.

Clary was shocked that Jace did not want her to come. Why would he? Clary knows nothing about this world, which she only knew about a few months ago. And now she wants to come with him to the capital for the biggest meeting since the first time Valentine attacked. So Jace along with Simon struck up a plan on how to leave without Clary, which would have worked, except for the unexpected attacked making Jace drag a half-dead Simon with him through the portal. When Clary found out she was not pleased. Using her ‘new magic’ she created her own portal to get her and Luke into the city. Sadly Clary was not custom to the rules, and did not know that you cannot connect a portal into the center of the city without someone on the other side expecting you. With that Clary landed herself in the middle of a lake, which is poisonous to Shadowhunters. Without Luke she would have died on the spot. Once there she was shocked how cold Jace was to her, it was like he did not want her there. Crying for the fact that Jace hates her, Clary meets her dark prince who goes by Sebastian.
