City Of Glass by Cassandra Clare

The Third Book In The Mortal Instruments Series

The Summary: 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.

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 new found powers to help save the Glass City -- whatever the cost?

(My Review): This book has definitely ramped It up that previous books in The Mortal Instruments series. Not saying that the other books weren't good but after you read City Of Ashes It pretty much gets better from there. The book starts about a week after City Of Ashes ends. Clary has to travel all the way to Alicante in Idris to find a woman named Madeleine, Clary's mother's friend, who might be the only person that can bring Clary's mom back to life.
Meanwhile Jace is doing everything in his power to keep Clary out of Alicante because he thinks It's too dangerous for her. And on top of this, Valentine's back and he's more relentless than ever in his quest to kill every single Shadowhunter- and he just may destroy everything if the Shadowhunters and Downworlders don't come together and fight against him.

So overall this book was way more intenese by far than City Of Ashes and City Of Bones. The characters in the book have remained the same as they've always have the series- and we even get to understand more about how they are and why they're a certain way. Sebastian was a very interesting character in all of this. He's a new face in the book so everyone's anxious to see how this person is. I won't give out too many spoilers but I'll say that he was the focal point of a lot the stuff that happened in that book.
The end of the book was very fitting for the book. After everything that happened and so much destruction and death is was nice to see a light in all of that. But overall, you must go read the book to understand everything that had happened. It is an intense, emotional, action-packed, book and I would recommend It to anyone likes intense battles, romance, and one heck of a roller-coaster type of book.

My Rating: 5/5
The Plot: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
