City Of Glass by Cassandra Clare

City Of Glass

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 Shadow-hunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadow-hunters 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?

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

I read this book last year and I loved it! The action starts from the very beginning and it's non stop.

I love how Clary and Jace are in this book. If I were reading it for the first time, I'd say I'd also really liked Sebastian but knowing the end, he's definitely on my hate list. I even hate him more than Valantine.

Great secreats are revealed and it's full of twists and turns. I read 200 pages of this book in less than two days --and two busy days, to say the least.

I love this book and although I think it's a great final installment, I can't wait until City Of Fallen Angels. I. Just. Can't. So, Cassandra Clare, if you're reading this, please please let me have an ARC to review. I'm that desperate :).

In one sentence:
"Powerful and entertaining at its best."

Plot: 5

Aw, it will probably be my next reading. Still choosing between this and Rampant, though. I'm also looking forward to read Clockwork Angel -- sounds AMAZING! :)

I really want to read this series, but my bookstore never has #1 in. :( It's probably the single book people have most recommended to me!
