Summary: (from goodreads) 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 new found powers to help save the Glass City - whatever the cost?
Review: This is the third book in the Mortal Instruments series, and it is my favorite of the series so far. I liked that much of this book takes place in Idris, which was a really unique setting. I liked getting even more shadowhunter history. This book had a lot of shocking plot twists that kept me hooked. The last few chapters were so intense and although this book was originally meant to be the end of the series. I am really glad that there is more to come. This book is close to six hundred pages long, but I flew through it, especially the last few chapters. I don't have anything else to say except that Clary and Jace are awesome and adorable and I love them both. Can't wait to continue with this series. I am also going to start reading the Infernal Devices series, which is the prequel series to this one.
