Product description

This title is the third and final instalment in the bestselling urban gothic fantasy sequence, "The Mortal Instruments". With two of the Mortal Instruments now in Valentine's hands, the world of the Shadowhunters teeters on the brink of civil war. Jace and the Lightwoods are recalled to Idris, the Shadowhunters' remote and hidden home country, where a search has begun for the last of the Instruments, the Mortal Glass. Clary finds herself caught up in the chaos as the delicate social order of the Nephilim begins to shatter, pitting Downworlder against Downworlder and Shadowhunters against each other. When the City of Glass falls under attack, can Downworlders and Nephilim fight together to defeat Valentine, or will their longstanding hatred destroy them all? And when Clary discovers the unbelievable truth about her own past, can she find Jace before it's too late?

By Serena 06 Sep 2010 2

The story itself was an interesting concept, but the writing techniques were flawed. Halfway through the author changes writing style and than back again making the flow of the book seem choppy.
The characters, felt to me stereotyped and weak.
I would strongly suggest that parents read before giving to young children as it describes and incestous relationship bewteen the main character and her brother.
Its flaws aside the book is fast paced and won't leave a reader bored. I'd recomend for a mature teenager who only reads a few books a year and not an avid reader.

As I said in my last review this book has a lot more twists and turns and by far the biggest twist is at the end.

this book is my favorite book out of the series it took me 4 days to read the whole book.

I cant wait until clockwork angel is comes out some time this year if you would like to hear more pleas visit this web site

and it also explains about the 4th book.

The author went all out with this supposidly last installment of 'The Mortal Instrument series.' I say supposidly because I read recently that there will in fact be a fourth book.

From the moment you pick this book up, the action begins, picking up where it left off in the second book.

Once coming to a complete circle, you will feel totally and utterly satisfied with the way the book is finished.

Lots of action, suspence and mind boggling questions; are they or aren't they? Leave you wondering and guessing what's going to happen throughout the next pages.

It's nothing short of thrilling and wonderful.

The only let down, is not having enough time with the two love birds once they're together. But I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of them in the coming novel.

Editorial reviews

How could things possibly work out for Shadowhunter Clary in this trilogy conclusion? Her mother's still in a coma, her boyfriend Jace is still her brother and her best friend Simon is still a vampire. As the Shadowhunters prepare for war against the army of demons raised by Clary's father, Valentine, Clary's bound for inspection in Idris, the Shadowhunter country. She's joined there by Simon and her werewolf father-figure Luke, though as Downworlders, their presence in Idris is illegal. Soon all the magical beings readers have met in Manhattan - vampires, warlocks, faeries and werewolves - have converged on Idris in a last-ditch effort to save the world. Betrayal and intrigue suffuse Clary's world as she navigates between angels and demons, politics and war. As lurid battle scenes cut to the requisite shocking revelations and angst-drenched reunions, readers will almost hear the John Williams music swelling. Derivative though it may be, melodramatic emotional wallowing has never been so much fun. (Fantasy. YA) (Kirkus Reviews)
