City Of Glass by Cassandra Clare

City Of Glass (Mortal Instruments #3) by Cassandra Clare.
Publisher: Margaret K. McEldererry.
Pages: 541.

In search of a potion for her dying mother, Clary sneaks into the City of Glass and is immediately caught up in a life-and-death battle. As the children of the Moon (werewolves), Night (vampires), and Faerie gather for a war that will rend the heavens, Clary calls upon her untrained powers to control an angel who will save or destroy them all.

As expected, City Of Glass is a fantastic third addition to the Mortal Instrument series. Following the steady continuation of butt-kicking characters, a forbidden romance and an almost unbeatable villain, I was easily sucked in!

While it followed in the footsteps of most of the aspects of the first two books, City Of Glass had a different feel to it, because we got to step outside of New York and into the Shadowhunter world. It’s a breath of fresh air from what we’re used to, but it kind of ties the series together.

So much is explained and revealed in this one. Questions after questions were built as the series progressed, but with the introduction of new characters and plot twists came much anticipated answers.

Overall, City Of Glass was a terrific follow-up to City Of Ashes. With gasp-worthy twists, a new enemy and tons more action, I definitely recommend that you go pick this up if you haven’t already! It’s an incredible final adventure for the series through Clary’s eyes!
