Review: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare


Title: City of Heavenly Fire

Series: The Mortal Instruments #6

Author: Cassandra Clare

In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother.

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris – but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee – even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned…

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!

‘Ghosts are memories, and we carry them because those we love do not leave the world.’

Ok what a conclusion to a series! I flew through this book and it is chuuuuunky coming in at over 700 pages!

So this is it. The potential end of the world and only a group of young Shadowhunters and a vamp to stop it.

Talking of vamps. I take back everything I said about Simon! I warmed up to him in the last book but in this book I adored him!

But Jace is still my boy, still looking like Draco Malfoy in my head and Alec still looking like a young, dark haired Tim Burgess from the Charlatans!

I’m not going to say much apart from the grief these people feel must be overwhelming!!

But the ending. Oh jeez the ending. It was emosh! The past and the present colliding, well not colliding. I was being melodramatic. Past and present meeting doesn’t sound as good! But this was!

Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn will be the next stars of the show? I certainly hope so! And I hope Brother Zacariah is there every step of the way!
