Love is a mortal sin, and the secrets of the past are deadly. Plunge into the third installment in the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and "prepare to be hooked" (Entertainment Weekly). 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 bestselling Mortal Instruments series.




  • What do you end up with when you have a 16-year-old girl from New York and her family and friends, and place them in a world filled with supernatural elements, action, and adventure? You get this amazing series that is truly unique in its own right, but still manages to feel familiar with its eccentric components. The narrator in the first book may seem a bit too young (they label it as young adult, but I disagree), the second book improves upon this, but the third book is undeniably the best. I was reluctant to finish it because I was so engrossed, managing to devour it in just three days! If you enjoy a blend of the supernatural and romance without unnecessary explicit scenes, then this series is an absolute must-read.
  • I can't stress enough how amazing this series is. It surpasses any other fantasy/sci-fi, including Twilight. I'm beyond excited for the film and the next book. It's an absolute must-read!
  • Rephrased: I finished reading/listening to "City of Glass: The Mortal Instruments, Book 3" from May 12 to June 22, 2012. As a fun read/listen, I would give it an overall rating of 3.50. The story itself deserves a rating of 3.75, while the characters get a rating of 3.25. The audio performance, however, deserves a separate rating of 4.50. Upon finishing the book, my initial thought was that the epilogue and Simon's character saved it from being a mere "2" rating for me. One thing that I loved about the book was the rich world created by Casandra Clare. It feels familiar yet completely unique. Simon, in particular, stood out as my favorite character in "City of Glass." He has come a long way since the first book, and it's nice to see him embracing his vampire side. The epilogue was also a highlight, as it effectively tied together all three books in a believable and not overly dramatic way. What I liked about the book was how Jace and Clary grew on me in the second half of "City of Glass." Their spirit and spunk really won me over, and I felt that they truly embraced their identities. I was also relieved that a storyline I disliked was finally resolved, although it took up too much of the book. There were a few things that confused me or made me question certain aspects of the book, but they were mostly resolved in the second half. I didn't appreciate the storyline involving Jace and Clary as siblings, as it became increasingly uncomfortable. Additionally, I wasn't a fan of the parents (or parental figures) allowing the kids to run rampant. It's just not a story device that resonates with me. However, these issues wouldn't bother dedicated fans of young adult fiction. The audiobook, narrated by Natalie Moore, was well done. The pacing, accents, and pronunciations were all delivered with ease. I plan on continuing the series in audio format. The total running time of the audiobook was 15 hours and 21 minutes. In conclusion, fans of the series will appreciate how "City of Glass" ties up loose ends and provides a satisfying conclusion.
