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?

My Review:

I don't even know where to begin with this book. There was so much that went on within the pages. you don't even know where to let your emotions go to.

I throughout the whole book was sucked into it, wanting to know what is going to happen. Jace is still mysterious and dark though you understand why he is the way he is. Clary is getting more and more brave and showing what her true self is. Simon is adjusting to the world he didn't know existed.

As I said in the second book in the series review, I don't know what I can really say about this book that won't be giving too much away about what happens in the other books.

I'm going to just say that the setting in this book changes a great deal than in the first two. It's still the same world but they are no longer in New York for this book. The characters also come out more to each other, some of which is hurtful some isn't, even though most of it is just supposed to be truthful even if it isn't what the other person wants to hear.

I'm not sure if this series was meant to be a trilogy and turned into a series or what, but the ending of this book doesn't really leave any hanging pieces out there. It all kind of comes together at the end of it and I would have been satisfied if this is where it ended. But I do know there is 3 more books out there, two of which are out and the last one comes out sometime in 2014.

This so far is my favorite in the series. I hope the rest of the series stays this great, I'm so excited to start the next one. I can't believe I waited so long to start reading this series! AHHH!

Couldn't put it down!!
