Review: City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

Title: City of Glass

Series: The Mortal Instruments #3

Author: Cassandra Clare

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 Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters 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?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third installment of the New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.


Not a conventional review from me this time but merely a few feelings!

I was on the edge of my seat here mostly throughout the whole book.

This book also made me ecstatically happy for many reasons!

I think this is my fave book of the series so far!

I hate angst but weirdly the Jace and Clary angst in this book excited me!

My ongoing obsession with Magnus and Alec continued and chapter 11 made my heart soar!

After my initial disliking of Simon in the 1st 2 books, I started to warm up to him here and I can now say I like him! Strange how that works isn’t it!!

I think I’m going to leave it there. Yes a totally small not-review but it is what it is!
