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.

I really enjoyed reading this installment and found it much better than City of Ashes. There was lots of tension, action, twists and turns. Again, I found myself impressed with Cassandra Clare's writing and ability to create an interesting fantasy world within the real world. The world changes in this book as the characters travel to Idris, the City of Glass, which is outside the normal world - it was nice to have a change of setting and focus.

I enjoyed the characters more in this book and am glad that the Clary/Jace story line took a turn as I didn't like their brother/sister storyline. Clary starts to grow into herself more in this book as she has had some time now to get used to being a Shadowhunter and her strengths are being more revealed and she acts more purposefully and less by accident. It is also nice to see Jace act like less of a jerk.

Again, I found some of the more minor characters to be some of the most interesting, such as Alec, Magnus, Isabelle, and Simon. In fact, some of the best scenes for breaking the tension and adding humour were between Simon and Jace.

This was supposed to be the final installment of the series, and it does tie up all of the loose ends, but Cassandra Clare has written more, with the City of Fallen Angels already out and more books planned - it will be interesting to see where things go from here.
